You're The Star - Extra Feature Week

Welcome to You're The Star - Extra Feature Week

Happy Monday. Here we are in the last day of August. Where did this month go? I guess it is onward to September. We actually had some cooler weather today, although it rained most of the day. The plants seem to love it and the grass is green. Tomorrow will still be a little cooler before heading back into the 90s on Wednesday.  How was your weekend?

As I watch others post their fall projects and talk about cooler weather, it is hard to think about fall when the weather is still so warm here in southern Florida. We may cool off to the upper eighties tomorrow. lol!
This post is about creating the vases for this "fall" centerpiece.

Happy Sunday to everyone. I hope your weekend was awesome.  Ours was quite nice. Hubby's brother and wife were here for the week at their house and stopped by several times. Yesterday we swam and laid around the pool and then had dinner. We had a wonderful time. They had to leave this morning, so we will miss them. it was so nice to spend time with them. 

I am still working on some projects. I hope to show you them soon. I am trying to get them done and out of my house since they are for other family members. 

What did you do over the weekend? I hope you share it with me. I enjoy seeing what others have been up to.

My favorite part of these parties is reading your comments. I feel like I get to know you and that we are almost like "texting" back and forth. You share your stories with me and I share mine - just like friends.  So keep them coming.

Happy Thursday my dear friends. I hope your week has been great and you are all doing well and staying healthy. August is coming to a close and we have made it through another month (almost). 

I love this time of year as I drool over all of the fall projects and decor. I am still having problems getting in the mood for fall with the weather being so hot. I get excited about it in the evening and then the next day it is so hot that I can't quite get in the mood. I guess I will just have to pretend it is cooler. Is any body else having this problem, or is it just me? I hope someone else is feeling like me. Oh please!

Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop

Welcome to Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop!

Happy Wednesday everyone. So glad you are here at the party. So many of you are posting lovely fall inspiration and it is driving me crazy because it is hard to think of fall when the temps are higher than normal - mid 90's. I don't think I have even seen a pumpkin at the grocery store yet. 
They said we would not see fall like temps for us until mid October. Yikes, the rest of you will be done with fall by then. What's a girl to do living in a hot climate?

I do like to see your ideas, so by the time I can get ready for fall, I will have plenty of inspiration. I did buy a fall throw and a fall leaf pillow for the sofa. I also bought some fall garland for the porch. Now to find a cooler day to get it put up. lol!

You're The Star - Home Feature Week

Welcome to You're The Star - Home Feature Week

Happy Monday Morning! I hope you had a wonderful weekend and I am wishing you a great new week ahead. Can you believe that we are heading into the last week in August? Wow, did this month go flying by. 

We had a good bit of rain the last several days, so much so that we had to drain some of the water out of the pool so it would not overflow. We drained for 2 hours to get it down. That was a lot of rain. I wish we could send some of it up north since my Mom says that had not had much rain and everything is brown. Are you having rain or are you dry?

Happy Sunday everyone. I hope you had a wonderful weekend. Ours was good, some rain but that seems to be normal lately. At least we are not going to get hit by the two hurricanes. We will get rain, but that is better than a big storm. I hope if you are in the path of Marco or Laura that you are safe. 

I am getting ready to plant some seeds. It's that time of year here in Florida. I did get most of the beds cleared out ready. My compost pile is ready as well. Even though my beds have great soil already, I like to add some compost when I start to plant. It's always funny when planting is ending up north, we are planting down south.  Are you doing any planting?

My favorite part of these parties is reading your comments. I feel like I get to know you and that we are almost like "texting" back and forth. You share your stories with me and I share mine - just like friends.  So keep them coming.

I had seen lots of fall things at JoAnn's and ended up buying a fall throw and a fall pillow. I even placed it on my couch with the other sort of beige/brown pillows. I guess that is my fall decorating for now. I am OK with fall and Halloween but then I saw some Christmas stuff - not ready for that. I think it makes the time go too fast, but that is just me. How do you feel about that?

Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop

Welcome to Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop!

Hello dear friends. I hope your week is off to a great start. Mine has been good, busy working on some projects that are getting close to be done, but not quite. I always seem to have more than one going on at the same time. I like that because I pick the project depending on my mood. Do you ever do that? Sometimes a project may not excite me that day. I like options. Silly I guess.

Do you have multiple projects going at one time or do you complete a project before moving to the next? I am anxious to see if anyone is like me. I hope so.

You're The Star - Family Feature Week

Welcome to You're The Star - Family Feature Week!

Happy Monday. here we are beginning another new week, and that's great. I had my birthday yesterday and I am grateful that I can enjoy another day. It was a quiet day but exactly what I wanted. Hubby made dinner and my daughter made me a chocolate cake. We swam and just enjoyed the day.
How was your weekend? Is the heat still a factor in your area? Have a great week.

Happy Sunday dear friends. It is a glorious day, today is my birthday. Now I have stopped celebrating birthdays but today I am enjoying the day since hubby is making dinner and my daughter is making my cake. I am going to relax and enjoy the pool and the day. It doesn't get any better than that.

How has your weekend been? I hope you are all still safe, healthy and enjoying these August days. I am starting to see "fall" stuff so I had to share a couple of fall ideas.

Happy Sunday!  It's Beverly from Eclectic Red Barn, your host for the month of August.  I hope you are enjoying the month of August since it is half way over. Can you believe that? Summer seems to NOT want to let go of the heat. I know many are dealing with high temps that are not normal for many places up north. We are hot, but it is usual for us here in Florida. Hope you are staying cool.

I hope you enjoy the features that I have chosen for this week.

Happy Thursday! How are you my friends? I hope you are doing well as we near the middle of August. Temps in Florida are usually hot but in talking with family up north, the high temps are not welcome. What a hot summer the north has had this year. Even my son in Vermont is dealing with temps in the low 90s. That is very unusual for them. I guess the worst part has been the lack of rain. So what are your temps like? Do you like hot weather?

Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop

Welcome to Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop!

Happy Wednesday Everyone. I hope your week is off to a great start. Mine is great. Getting a lot of things done. Did you ever start a project and thought it was simple, just some paint and then you get carried away. What abut adding this or changing that? Well, that is what has happened to my latest project. I thought it would be done quickly, but no, it is taking a lot longer than I expected. Of course it is my fault since I keep changing and adding. I will be sharing soon, (I hope!)

Have you ever had a project that blossomed into more than you thought? How is your week? Let me know what is happening in your life.

You're The Star - Creative Feature Week

You're The Star - Creative Feature Week

Happy Monday morning. I hope you had a great weekend. We did a lot of this and that. We had some much needed rain. 
Update on Louie. He is doing better. Getting a little rambunctious so that is a good sign. He is still dragging that back left leg but he is getting around better although I still carry him everywhere. My vet doesn't want him to walk much at all just yet. 
How was your weekend? Any projects, outings, shopping, cooking? I love hearing what you did over the weekend.

Excellent Side Dish - Melting Potatoes

Excellent Side Dish - Melting Potatoes

Every once in awhile, hubby actually looks at recipes. So he says, "we need to try Melting Potatoes". They taste like poutine. I think poutine is one of those dishes that you either like or you don't. We love it. Poutine is a dish that includes french fries and cheese curds topped with a brown gravy. It originated in the Canadian province of Quebec. When we are in Vermont, we always head to our favorite restaurant to get some poutine.

Happy Sunday dear friends. I hope you had a wonderful weekend. Ours was very nice - quiet as usual. Getting some projects done, but slower now since I still have to watch Louie and carry him everywhere. Hubby is working on his new addition. He bought an extra large carport with removable sides. We set it up beside his shed so he could put his riding lawn mover and other things inside it. He has been working cleaning the area around it up and organizing things. 
When we set it up on Friday, we only had time to put all of the walls and the top canvas. The wind came up and I thought it was going to be air borne. I am trying to hold it down while he tied it down. It was rather funny.


My favorite part of these parties is reading your comments. I feel like I get to know you and that we are almost like "texting" back and forth. You share your stories with me and I share mine - just like friends.  So keep them coming.

Happy Thursday! Hope you are all enjoying your days. I want to apologize to everyone that has made comments on my posts. This past couple of weeks with our Louie being sick has consumed most of my time. Yesterday, he seemed to be doing so much better and then he had he acupuncture treatment. They said he would be sore Tuesday night and some yesterday. 
Well, he was very bad yesterday, to the point of not being able to walk without falling. The vet increased his meds and if he is not better this morning, he has to go back to the vets. I hope there has not been a set back. Poor little guy, you can tell he is in pain. He just wants you to hold him and then he gives you these sad eyes. it breaks your heart.

Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop

Welcome to Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop!

Here we are in another new week. I hope you are all doing well. We are good, still trying to stay home as much as possible. I am still working on some projects that I wasn't able to get to. I am excited about that. I am making room in the garage. One of these days, I hope it will be all cleaned up. 
Are you working on any projects, working in the garden or thinking of back to school issues. My son has been an OR nurse and this year took a job as a school nurse which is only 10 minutes from their house, instead of driving 50 minutes to the hospital. What is the likelihood that the schools would be in a turmoil as he prepares for a new job? Life is full of twists and turns.

You're The Star - Garden Feature Week

Welcome to You're The Star - Garden Feature Week

Happy Monday to everyone. Here it is the first Monday in August. I hope you are all doing well. We were spared any real problems with tropical storm Isaias. We had a little rain that's all.  That was such a relief.

I did some sewing over the weekend. It was a great way to be close to Louie, since he needs to rest. I could put him in his crate and work while he rested. My dining room has become my sewing room. I hope to share some of those projects soon. 

I am wishing you a great week. Take care and be safe!
