Saturday's 60th Birthday Bash

Hello Friends and Happy Monday!

I hope you had a wonderful weekend, the weather was simply gorgeous in Delaware despite a few intermittent rain drops.  Saturday I spent most of the morning in my son’s closet gathering clothes to be donated to the Cancer Federation. He doesn’t outgrow his clothes as quickly as his younger brother, but I was able to find enough to fill two large bags.

Saturday evening hubby and I attended a celebration in honor of his friend’s 60th birthday. Hollywood is a long time friend and is the lead singer of Hollywood And The Final Kutt Band.  They have played all over Delaware and can be seen next at the World Cafe Live in Wilmington on September 5th.

He and his wife live in a lovely row home in Wilmington where they have created a mini outdoor sanctuary filled with plants, a fish pond, cats, dogs and birds.

For several hours we talked, laughed, shared stories and simply enjoyed ourselves in blessings and celebration of this milestone birthday.

A perfect way to end the work week, it’s nice when peers take the time to say they appreciate you and the work that you do.

Do you take time to show or tell co-workers that you appreciate them?

Around the water cooler this afternoon with 3lilapples – come on over and met a new blogger.

I appreciate you and hope you have a fantabulous weekend – Smooches!

Vacation Day in May

Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve!

Today was a fantastic day, this morning it was sunny with temps in the high 80’s and I was on vacation hanging with my oldest son.  There were a few things that we needed to get done including him renewing his driver’s license.  I can’t believe it’s been 4 years already and next month he’ll be celebrating his 21st birthday – God is Good!

All that closet cleaning Saturday and I could not find one pair of decent shorts…oh well, time to hit up GW Boutique this weekend!  I decided to wear an old pair of capris instead of a sundress and found them to be just as comfortable.

After a doc appointment I stopped in at Rugged Wearhouse and saw some of the cutest purses, but resisted the urge to make a purchase!  It was a good vacation day in May.

Have a fantabulous day – Smooches!

Plants in the Back Seat

Hello Friends and Happy Sunday

I hope you had a good weekend with an opportunity to spend quality time with your family/friends and did something fun and enjoyable.  Yesterday, I took my car in for an oil change and Malik was my chauffeur so I took full advantage by having him drive me all around town running errands – it was good being Mommy!  I had him drive me to Dunkin Donuts, Dutch Country Farmers Market, Family DollarPNC Bank and then finally to Lowe’s it was fun for me, not so much for him.

We gave him Tayair’s old car, remember the 2002 Hyundai Elantra, well you would have thought it was a new Mercedes because when he realized the plants had to ride in the back seat he wasn’t happy!  I  purchased two hanging baskets, a Color Combo Patio plant, Sweet Basil, Heirloom Tomatoes, Curled Parsley and Cilantro and they rode shotgun in the back seat fully protected by a yard of plastic – it was hilarious!

Hanging baskets – Petunias, Calibrachoa and Lobelia

Curled Parsley – boil and drink like tea it’s great for the digestive system

Cilantro is a wonderful fragrant herb

Basil also keeps the bugs away from your garden

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA Hibiscus is a perfect patio plant

Today I cleaned in and around the pool and cleared out my little garden which was overrun with Mint from last year.
