It was totally worth the wait….

Mildly disappointed that they don’t have the strong peonies scent but they are beautiful.  Color is my thing…I’m very moved by color and my mood is affected by color and music, of course.

Finally got cushions for the rocking chair that I bought last fall at Ice House Auction.  Jax has been trying to sit in it without cushions so he was visibly excited that it was now so comfortable although you can’t tell it by his face.

I bought the cushions AT HOME…they have an amazing selection.  Its the best I’ve ever seen.  Also got an umbrella to match the table for very cheap AT HOME.

I love yellow.

Did acupuncture yesterday for my left side.  My shoulder, knee and kidney should have benefited.  Jenny gave me something else to contemplate.  The fact that the right side of your brain controls the left side of the body may indicate that I need to  work on strengthening that side of my brain.  Chiropractor also started me on some turmeric supplements.  I have been reading a lot about turmeric and when he suggested it, I was sold.  Still working to heal myself from within..Now working on healing my physical self from within.  I love that both of my girls are holistic and always have ideas for my journey.

Shortly I’ll be out there in one of those deck chairs, drinking my coffee and catching up on WordPress and Facebook.

Until next time….

It’s apparently just the red neck thing to do….

It’s the way he painted the deck table and chairs, its the way I painted a cast iron vessel that became a flower pot and it’s the way I painted the little red wagon that I”m using for flowers…ya just – hang em’ in the tree and spray paint away.  Apparently he will not soon forget the spring we had a spray paint shadow in the yard of something I painted.  Putting down a sheet or newspapers to protect the grass from the color didn’t even enter my thought process.  I mean…the grass will grow what difference does it make.  Apparently it makes a difference.  I realize that I have a problem with attention to detail.  I ain’t got it!  I love to spray paint things and with an eye roll he just hikes them up the tree with a rope!

I’m holding a daily vigil waiting for the peonies to open up.

Spring comes so much earlier in Missouri than it did in Iowa and I’m loving it!

Until next time…..
