The Dutch Iris have already BLOOMED!!!
I guess we have had the perfect conditions,
rains and now lots of warm toasty sunshine!
ahhhh! sooo sweet! I need to tell you that these
sweet flowers are a total surprise when they come
up because some years they do NOT bloom.
They are a remenant from the original homeowner
and were spaced about the back yard in the most unusual places.
It's almost like she is saying hello!

I've got Sunshine!!! and not a cloudy day

OHHH! Glorious sun and heat!!!
its been in the 80's!! YEAH!!
(I feel so bad for my frozen friends)
I have a good friend moving from Florida to New York
to help with her aging parents. God Speed and God Bless.
because of course its a horrible storm she is driving into...
go figure...
My Iris are tall and I think the dutch will bloom by St Patty's day
and the bearded will wait till Easter (they have more shade)
a true sign of spring in these here parts!!

Happy Heart Month!

I was watching the early morning news yesterday and
everybody on screen had on RED, for Heart Month!
I am aware of breast cancer awareness month,
but this was new to me
(yes- i live in a bubble)
So in light of this, i want to help promote it,
or just raise a little bit more awareness.
As women, ( and i assume that mostly women read this )
we love and nuture everyone around us. I think we need
to make a little time to nuture ourselves and makesure
that we will still be here to do what we do best- take care of our loved ones.
So lets get to the Dr., get to the gym, or park and do something wonderful for ourselves!
Live a long and happy, healthy life.

( OH MY GOODNESS, did I just say that??!!??! )

Future Freshman Nite

all i can say is WHOAAAAA Nelly, slow down.
its been a long time since i have set foot on a HS Campus.
not much has changed. (lol) or so i thought. we went to
an "assembly" before meeting the club and sports and etc.
i thought the assembly was nice, they had, ROTC, jazz band,
choir, the deans spoke, and the dance ensemble performed.
i was soooo embarrassed....... they had girls and guys "dancing".
i think they were doing "hip hop", not really sure what to call it.
some of the moves were great, the costumes were fairly decent
( they even had on silver converse shoes ) BUT, i thought i was gonna die
when the song got nasty and so did the dance.
now, i dont think i am a prude, and i LOVE to dance
(granted i would rather 2 step, but i still like to shake my groove thing)
it was beyond 'Dirty Dancing'. and it was on stage!!!
i guess i am officially OLD, not only did i NOT like the music, but i was offended!!!
i dont watch MTV, so i know i am behind the times, but please
tell my WHY its acceptable
at the HIGH SCHOOL to be so risque?!?!?!?!!

We had a Wonerful Christmas, Hubby & kids have been on vacation

My job is retail, not my favorite place ever,since i have alot of previous experience there. (lol) so far so good, nice people to work with. We'll see.
