Good afternoon ladies…… I hope you all had a wonderful weekend…. we are going back some very HOT days again.,, (boo)  but Saturday we did have some nice rain with a bit of thunder,,,, in the morning,, so I lite some candles and put on my Birds of song cd… it was so wonderful to sit and listen to the rain  and my CD.  an read my book….. I spent the most part of the day that way,,,,,,, I know shame on me,, I should have been doing something productive,,, but I just did not feel like it…… not because of being lazy,,, but because I am coming down with a very nasty Chest cough,,, it is really tight in my chest….  

  A few days ago while out looking through our local Salvation Army store,, I found this really cute small table….. here I will show you..

photo (9)

Squealllllllllllllllllllllllll  is she not the sweetest little thing,,,, and she even has two,,, not one but TWO Magazine holders….. wow… boy picked up right up and carried her all over the shop,, while still looking….lol  she was only 20.00  I did not think that was too bad,, she was in such great shape,,, I also found two books as well… I will show them to you later on…..

photo (10) 

I just love this sweet charming table,, but not the color.. .so off to the paint area in Walley world,, I went,, and found a pretty off white color called Muslin..  but since I have not been feeling too great, I put off doing anything with her…..  so this morning I started to paint her,,,,, but I will save those for when I have her all done and spiffed up……. she will fit just wonderfully beside my wing chair,,,, the one in the photo,,, and set a few favorite Magazines in it…. and a small lamp and some pretties which I have no idea yet,, but never fear,, I will soon…..  

   photo (11)

Now this is not too fancy but this is my little side tea table….hehehehe  I had to stop and make me a nice hot cup of Darjeeling Tea to help with my cough,,, and wait for the paint to dry,,, so I can add a second coat…..

photo (12)

I love to have Honey with my Tea but sadly I was out so I had to use my Splenda…. guess I had better get to the store later and buy some….. with the honey in it,, it makes me feel so much better… I  love to drink Tea when I feel bad.. it so helps,,,,, 

Well  sweet and dear friends of mine,, I hope you enjoyed my little post today….  I still have not been up town to take those Pictures of our pretty court square… but I will so don’t worry,,, I so want to show off my home town to you all,,, and Summer is the perfect time of year to show it off….. 

As always thank you all so much for taking the time to stop by my little blog… and for leaving me so many lovely comments… I cherish them all.. You are all such Great Blessing’s in my life,,, your encouragement and uplifting comments are so much appreciated…..So Thank you all………………………

  So until next time; God Bless;

Good evening; I just thought I would pop in and let you all know that I am still around…. Seems like Summer is just a busy time,,, doing yard work,,,, cook outs, picnics,,,Vacation’s,, Minnie Vacations,,, and just so much more…. that blogging time takes a back seat at times,,  so my reason for being MIA……  I hope to get back to blogging on a  more regular base’s soon.. I have been wanting to take a walk around our small town and take some photos to share with you all… Auburn is so beautiful in the Summer,, the Court Square is just amazing with so many lovely flowers planted,, and a small garden square with a water fall and seating,, and beautiful flowers… and each year they show case some type of Art around the town.. this year it is Statue’s around the town,, and they are amazing.. they have them set up all over town and at one end they have a very HUGE couple dancing in  Victorian clothing,,,,, and they are HUGE; lol 

But with the weather being so darn hot hot hot,,, I have not been able to get out and do that… so I am Praying that this weekend it will cool a bit and I can get up there to do that….. I am not sure how long I will be here in my home town,,, so I had better hurry….. We did get some much needed rain this evening,, it was a nice hard rain so my few plants were very happy…..  oh and all those weeds were singing too……  I hope you are all having a wonderful week, and the weather is pleasant for you where you live……  So that is it for now,,, I hope to be back with some lovely home town photos….

So until next time; God Bless;
