Don't Be Selfish With Those Selfies


It's a good day!


Dogs!


Flowers!


Chickens!

And then I decided I would try some sarcastic selfies...

you know.....we all hate selfies.....

and we all make fun of the selfie obsessed...(like me)

So here is my tribute to selfies....

Fishlip selfie....

I never understood this one....

I do know that 20 year old fishlips looks better than 50 year old fishlips...


Next up....

the my animal is so cute but I can't just get a pic of my animal I must be in it also selfie...


This cracks me up......Sambo is freaking out.....:)

Next.....

I am such a deep thinker selfie......


You need to do some deep thinking on those neck wrinkles.....:(

and then we have the famous

seat belt selfie...


Of course with an XL package of toilet paper in the background...

I absolutely refuse to do the bathroom mirror selfie...
(mainly because I don't want to clean the bathroom)

and I have one more......




wait for it......





wait for it.......






The TREEEEEEEE selfie.....:)


I apologize for nothing......

you HAD to see the TREE again.....:)

Now....

don't be selfish with those selfies.....

be loud and proud...

show those fishlips....

those neck wrinkles....

the TP in the background.....

I can't wait to seeeeeeee....

your selfie in a treeeeeee.....

:)

Real Life

It is a beautiful, sunshine filled day.

I was out hanging clothes on the line and thought I should take a photo of it.

Then I thought.....I can't take a photo of these ragged things.


But you know.....

that's life....

real life....

Life is worn out towels.....

mismatched socks....

faded blue jeans....


It's inside out shirts.....

stained work pants....

and weeds growing everywhere....

But it's also abundant sunshine.....

birds singing....

green grass underfoot.....


It's fresh, clean air.....

and a slight welcome breeze....

It's new growth....

and flowers yet to come....

Life is all of these things....

and so much more...


It's real....

it's not always perfect....

and I wouldn't have it any other way...

The TREE....the TREE




The tree!!!

The tree!!

Can you believe I'm going to show you the tree again this year?

I can't help myself.

I walk outside and I think Oh my.....the tree is so beautiful...

I MUST show this to my friends.......again......

And look to the far left.....I have another one just like it....:)

I can't wait until they are both large and flank my driveway....sigh...


I have an unhealthy attachment to this tree.

What would I do if something happened to it?


And don't think that y'all are the only "lucky" ones that get to see it.

I will load facebook up with photos of it.


I will figure out how to "slip" the tree into all of my conversations.

Friend:  Hey do you want to eat lunch Friday?

Me:  Sure, that sounds great....I hope I can find my sunglasses

because the bright pink blooms on my TREE will blind you....lol.

Friend: huh?


And if I have to drive across town and pick you up I will 

conveniently "forget" my purse and go back to my house.

Friend will say...."wow, that tree is beautiful!"

And I will casually say.....what tree?  Oh that tree....

yes it is pretty isn't it....:)


You will drive by and see me in my gown and robe because I have to get a 

morning "first light" photo of the TREE.

You will see me standing in the middle of the road so I can get a

wide angle shot of the TREE.


Friend:  Did you watch Glee last night?

Me:  No....I didn't ...but you know what rhymes with Glee

my TREE!


I know you want to know.....

It's a Kwanzan Cherry Tree.

But I should call it 

My Spring Obsession....:)

Thanks for hanging in there with me

as I told the story of my love for my TREE!

(see there it rhymes with everything)
heehee
the tree...

help me....I can't stop....

The Potting Shed

Guess what I've been doing?

Besides eating Little Debbie snacks (that's too easy).

I've been working outside!!!

I'm really trying hard not to plant all my flowers or my garden yet.

Oh but I want too!


But do you see that little extension coming off of the coop?

I did that!!

All by myself (puffed up chest and swelled head)...:)

I decided that I needed a potting shed....:)


I made the sign first.

Now the roof part was not pretty.....

I was sweating and fussing and dirty and math challenged but

it's up there!

Because really......did you really think hubby would go for adding 

round thing-a-ma-jigs on the posts because it would look cute?

Or have the brilliant idea of adding bottles to the post like a bottle tree?


I think not!

Only my mind.....my crazy tacky artistic mind....would think of that....:)

And then I found a broken shovel and a funnel and

BAM!

a plant stand!


Now I would be lying if I said I didn't have ANY help....

Rod Stewart was not impressed with the new metal chickens....

"hey....why do you need these when you have me?"


I know Rod....they can't compare to you.

I can't wait until I get to plant flowers and vegetables and 

all the empty beds are filled!!

Be sure and check back soon.

There is no telling what I may have dragged out of the dump

dreamed up by then.

Dreamy Day.......

Well Spring Break is over....

My hubby took this pic of me as the sun was setting on our last day....

I ate nothing but a raw, vegan diet.

It was delicious!

My morning yoga on the beach was wonderful.

My hubby shopped and shopped with me....

He says that I never spend money on myself so there was no limit on the credit

card for whatever I wanted to purchase....:)

I went too far didn't I?

You were kind of with me until I threw in the credit card part...

weren't you?

I lost some of you ,that know me well, on the raw, vegan diet.

I'm sure some of you weren't fooled even from the start....:)

Happy  April Fools!!!
(now excuse me as I butter my biscuit)
