Our group served dinner at the Ronald McDonald House again Sat night. The menu this time was Mexican and churns of home made chocolate and strawberry ice creams. We only had one couple to eat. My first thought was to be disappointed, but then I thought..."if that means there aren't many children in the hospital, then that is a good, no a wonderful thing!"

I am a person who likes detail. Over the weekend, I watched a movie...not one I would recommend, but it starred Jessica Tandy and I have liked her since seeing Driving Miss Daisy. Anyway, these two women started out on a trip and decided to take a car ferry across the river. Their car, with everything except the two of them and their purses, rolled off the ferry and into the river. In the next scene, they have their luggage. How did that happen? The car is not recovered until much later in the movie. Movie makers don't think we are very smart, do they? ha! ha!

I saw a sign at our local building supply store today, "Don't just replace your old swing...paint it!"
It is true that we are a "throw away" society. I must say I am happy that we have been able to re-use
some of our old furniture pieces and we have a few other possibilities that I am still thinking about...
waiting for inspiration!!

Had fun shopping at Kohl's this afternoon after work. Everything was on sale and I had a 30% off coupon. I bought a swimsuit, two belts, a pair of shoes, and a piece of jewelry for less than the original price for the swimsuit! I left with a smile on my face!

We are getting lots of rain here...probably 5-6 inches in the last week. Our grass, plants and flowers
are very happy. Everything looks lush and green and it has kept temperatures mild.  I think we are going to be seeing the sun tomorrow and summer time temps. That's okay...this is the longest spring we have had in "many a year"!!

Starting to get things together for our annual beach trip in two weeks. Making lists and checking them twice...for shopping and packing. Not much shopping on our island of choice, so it's important to "take it with you" if you can!

We harvested two yellow squash from our garden Friday...woohoo!! It's been good sliced up in salad.
Hopefully, the next crop will be big enough to stew with onions...the way the Hubby likes it!

If you endured to the end of these ramblings...you are very kind! Aesop said "No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted." So, be assured, your kindness is never wasted on me! Thanks for visiting today! :-)


  1. Did I ask already - what beach are you going to? Sure wish I were heading to a beach in a couple weeks. ;-)

    We've got summertime in our future - 95 tomorrow and 97 on Wednesday.

  2. My favorite kind of post! Just little bits of "life" - giving your readers a glimpse into you. Hooray for coming out of Kohl's with a smile on your face. I did that a few weeks ago - and then last weekend on our date, I took my husband shopping just for him. Since I already had a few new items for summer, I didn't even look for me.

    I have thought about you as the hurricane passed by your region. Glad it's just producing wonderful rain.

    And don't get me started on lack of continuity in movies! My daughter and I notice those things all the time. Her favorite lately: after viewing Les Miserables, oh, about two dozen times, she noticed that in the barricade scene either Marius or Enjolras (I can't remember which) has a knife in his hand, then doesn't, then acquires it again.

    And there - I've matched your ramblings!

  3. I love to find bargains and it sounds like you did well at Kohls! How fun to look forward to your beach trip!

  4. i love yellow squash, we got 6 inches of rain last week. great sign at the store, more people need to recycle. and i just told bob about your movie detail. he said remember in the movie last night, the lady came out to get in her car, and the killer had spray painted in red on the side of her car, how's your mom... she drove off in it and when she got in the car the next scene, bob said how did she get that paint off, the paint was gone..

  5. I like your ramblings. Think about Father Tim, he does that in his walks. I love to read about life.

  6. Funny stuff, those film makers. I wouldn't want to be one. Thanks for seeing my doggie's cuteness.

  7. you always see the glass half full, i do as well!!

    wonderful charity work you do, it so much better to give then to receive. better to refinish then to replace ;)))

    nice ramblings!!
