Christmas is Coming

And am thoughts are... what to do about Lily and a tree!
Haha....actually, I'm not that worried. But I saw this and had to laugh!

Yesterday I met mom at Wally World.... to pick out her Christmas gift! HAHA... yep, you don't buy mom anything until it is given the ok. 
Took this in the garden area. Christmas is moving up  FAST!

I am a Star War Fan.... but not anything like my son. I saw the very first Star War movie at the drive in (yes, that was when they were popular) when I was 17! Oh my gosh, it just hit, that 40 yrs ago.  Anyway, another comes out Dec. 15, 2017. I will wait till the crowds die down and while others work to go see this. I have NO problems going to the movie alone. That is the  breaks of being retired early in  life while your friends still work. of my favs. Christmas Merry Say You!

Baked two loaves of Rosemary bread yesterday. One to take to my  brothers and one for my friend Theresa to take to Kentucky for  her family get together.

Morning. I posted some of these pics before. 
I had the stairs covered before I started on the shelves.  Course this idea came from  PINTEREST.
Oh there are mistakes... but they are mine and I  am proud of the fact that at least it is secure and standing!


You see the window on the wall back  there?
I hit it with some stain to make it stand out a bit more. 

And here is a pic I have not  posted before.
It's done!!!

Random all Over the Place Post

When its not too hot or in the case of today...I love being on my deck. So glad I had it screened in the year I retired. 
I actually love taking naps out there. But my two seater glider is a tad short  to laying on....although, don't get me wrong, curled up on it I have napped several times! Just had to UNCURL when I need to get up!
So....I was thinking I needed something bigger,  more comfy.
Saw this. Love this, but this base would take up way to much room on the deck.

But I have been looking at building a swinging bed/couch for the deck. 

I am thinking that I really don't need it that wide, don't want to put a twin size mattress on the deck. Plus when I  sat on it I don't want my feet  to dangle off of the side.
HAHA...saw this posted on the neighborhood fb page last night. Someone took this, busy four lane road down the street right before rush hour traffic!

Do you ever feel this way?
