Day 112 - Lisa

Yeah, getting a bit anxious.  Found these cute tin garden markers with sticks to put them in the ground.  I splurged and bought many.  So we "had" to get the seeds too.  Beautiful garden area at the Ace Hardware in Decatur.  Apparently, it's a hot spot to sell chickens too!

Day 112 - Sis

This was a day of different stops in our area and a truly free day the three of us, Lisa, oneeya and me had to waste. Decided we should use the time before we're fully involved in home ownership. Two promising stops of the day were when we went to our town's local flea market to see what that was like. Very quiet and small. Maybe 10 canopies set up with items that made us realize we could probably make a few bucks from some of our junk in storage! Second we headed to an Ace Hardware/nursery combo. Lisa and I enjoyed this part very much, oneeya found sitting in the truck wasn't all that, but she had to notice the other dogs, in their vehicles, solved the boredom by sleeping. I saw this sign that made me think one chicken was for sale, actually means six or seven. Hoping that math applies to other future purchases we may have.;0 This beautiful object, in a garden setting, made me wonder if it was a rain barrel, tall planter or huge ashtray. Oh we did fit in a visit to the dog park for the little pouting girl.

Day 111 - Lisa

I'm starting to enjoy these Friday night dinner and drinks routine we are on.  Sangria - oh Spain you cannot come fast enough.  Hopefully my future has me sitting at an outside table sipping a glass of Sangria gazing at a anciet Castle or Church.  ;>

Day 111 - Sis

Somethings just catch your eye, maybe because they remind you of your younger days or because you're too young and they are all new to you. These make me want to write a country song!

Day 110 - Lisa

My future bathroom has an old ironing board built into the wall.  Kinda cool.  I'm not sure if I'm going to keep the ironing board or take it out and use it as a small cabinet.  I could just take the door off and put candles and other knick knacks that collect dust.  Nah.

Day 110 - Sis

See I knew this calendar would come in handy. Now I can just glance at it and know next week's schedule is set and I can plan which day to have the aspirin supply handy!

Day 109 - Lisa

My mama & I made the executive decision to hire a cleaning service to "deep clean" our house before we move in.  Those bathrooms are nasty and I'm not reaching up into those cabinets without knowing what's in there.  LOL!  Call me old or lazy but don't call me stupid!  ;>

Day 109 - Sis

This was the Dick Clark that was part of my life through my teens. The show from Philadelphia that aired every week day afternoon and brought so much joy to me, dancing with my sisters or anyone else in our front room. No color tv then, black and white was the color. Black and white were guest performers. That was BIG for a TV show in those days and Dick Clark didn't seemed to be aware or brought undue attention to it. He always had the aura of calmness and acceptance in his demeanor. So this man continued for decades building a successful business empire but always, in my eyes, introduced so many of us to new things, both musically and culturally. A true pioneer.

Day 108 - Lisa

I've talked about my Canadian Geese family before.  This is my fifth Spring with Mr & Mrs Goose.  I think this is their third group of goslings since I've known them.  They stay with them a whole year so I'll see these babies grow up.  ;> They seem so proud of their babies. There's too many people working in my facility now so I'm sure they won't come around as much as they used too.  I used to be able to name them.  Mama Goose talks to me when I talk to her.  She brought her babies over for me to see this evening after everyone else had left.  ;>

Day 108 - Sis

Cords, it takes this many in this old life of mine to be connected to the world. Funny when you think of it, I came into the world with just one cord before I was quickly disconnected into my new world.

Day 107 - Lisa

Been waiting three plus years to use these.  FINALLY!

Day 107 - Sis

Dog park! What are you kidding, she seems to be asking me. Fifteen minute to drive her there. We arrive, the big boys approach to welcome her. And after a few minutes of walking and a bit of running she likes to pause and take in the scene around her. What I mean is she really, really likes to pause!

Day 106 - Lisa

I about fell over when my mom who had ran into the store to get corn tortillas walked out with two violets.  See we both worked for Sunnyside Nurseries, along with other family members during the 70's and 80's.  Her for many more years than I.  She hated violets while working there and swore never to buy any.  We had the pleasure of planting, spacing, picking and packing thousands upon thousands of violets.  Today she said, "they'll look pretty in the new house." Clearly, the thought of finally getting a house has messed with her state of mind.

Day 106 - Sis

Hi Lisa, how was your day? Snoring sounds, uh Lisa? The beginning of another lively evening with my daughter!
