Natures Teacups?

After seeing my grandson off to school (kindergarten now!) I took a little stroll around my yard. When I look at my last remaining flowers I notice a bunch of brown things all over the place.  I think they are mushrooms.  When you look in the 2nd photo it looks like little eggs and some of them hatched.

Today I Smiled

Today was a bit frustrating as I made an error at work dealing with others pay. The issue is resolved but I do not like making mistakes especially when it involves money and other people.

When I got home I regrouped by vegetating on the sofa watching some random TV show. Then my grandson handed me some mail. At first all I see is a bill then another bill, then there is this shiny square envelope with unfamiliar hand writing. When I turn it over I see it is from France! Then I smiled! It’s from Brian.

I met Brian here on WordPress about 3 years ago and I feel that if we were to ever meet in person we would be true friends.

Thank you Brian for making me smile and taking a bit of time out of your vacation to find this card for me.

If you haven’t already been to Brian’s blog go check it out and enjoy some of his travels with “Scotty”.

My First…..and it felt good

I work in a home improvement store and I talk to people who are working on some project almost daily.  I decided that i too wanted to make something. A deck.  Is what I decided to tackle.

After about a month I took the plunge and purchased the materials including a new saw.  Although I did not need a saw since they cut the wood for me. I kept it anyway since I decided to create other things.

 

It is not as big ad I thought but it is a perfect first try at making something from wood.

Will be buying plants to put around my new deck.
