Fans to Walk Abouts Including Trees
You all know by now that I am all
about using items in different ways~
I think that is called up cycling.
I saw this on Pinterest the
other day and thought, wow, how
cool. The side rails for a baby bed.
Temps have been moving
on into the "HEAT" section
of my porch thermometer!
I keep fans in my room upstairs
and a guest room. I had an older
box fan on the deck.
But took the older box fan to the
barn to hang in Misfires
stall to run at night.
HAHA...that in itself is a funny
story. But anyway, I brought the one
from the guest room down.
It's like this one.
I thought with it sitting up higher
it would do a great job but
it was not even doing the trick.
So off to Wally World I went for another
box fan...and I love the colors!
Yep, got a purple one!
The one I took from the deck to take
to Misfire was older but worked great.
Weeks ago I pulled up the barn, unloaded it
then I noticed Chris' son in the pasture
unloading stuff from his truck to the burn
pile. I knew I would have to move so
he could get out so I jumped in the
car and CRACK...yes, I did, I
ran over the fan. At which point the
next day I went to Wally World and
got Misfire a new fan...
Yep, she got purple too!
Anyway, even with both fans on the deck
going come about 11 or 11:30
I have to move inside. It has been
getting just way too hot for me.
Shortly after that, I make Lily come
in also until around 6 in the evening.
The other day while cat feeding at
my brothers I snapped this pic of
his yard art. I then said something about
it not being near as cool as the other
tree. Sandra then asked about the other
tree. I failed to snap any pics of it since
this time of yr it is hard to get a
good one since the leaves have all
come upon the tree.
So I went into my pics and pulled
out some other pics to share.
This is one after the leaves have
come out, but if you look
closely you can see the Tonka
trucks in the tree.
Here is some views without all the
leaves. There are about 5 maybe
6 up in there.
Like me, Mark visits Goodwill. He
picked up these trucks there and
this is where they go.
I have several Tonka trucks in
my shed but they are the metal, I think
all Marks are plastic, and mine
belong to my son from when he
was a boy. I thought about using them in
the garden but decided against it so
they will not rust.
A pop of color has appeared in
the Crepe Myrtle bush just outside
the deck. I planted this by in either 96 or
97. I got a couple from a friend of
mine I worked with. Gave one to my
neighbor and I kept one. They were
sprout ups from Michelle's trees. In 1998
Michelle lost both her trees to the
tornadoes that hit Nashville.
At least I know I will get 3
tomatoes off my plant. I thought
they would never turn. The other plant,
the Purple Cherokee seems to
get blooms then they fall off.
If you have never had a Purple
Cherokee tomato you don't know
what you are missing.
UGLIEST tomato I ever saw but
the taste is amazing!
Every morning before the heat sets in
Dakota and I do our morning
Here is a shot of us starting out
yesterday, he looks like he is in
a hurry and has gotten ahead of me.
I asked my friends on FB to
help me give my home a name.
they all came up with some great
names but I think I am leaning
towards~ The Whimsical Cottage
or maybe Whimsical Whimsy or
The Whimsical Way.
The first came from a friend
in Wyoming and the last two
What do you think?
Just a reminder~ be kind cause you never
know what someone else might be
Do you suffer from anything that makes
your days hard to get things done?
My pantry is still in the middle
of the kitchen floor. Need to work on
that today if I can.
