Feel Good Friday!!

Get your toes ready for tapping to ......... B O N G O R O C K ! !

And enjoy the super cool cartoon! I am a bongo novice...I bought myself one years ago and I occasionally beat them when I feel the urge to rock out with a cool song like this one. I wish I had learned to play with a drum kit...someday I would like to buy a kit and take a few lessons, although Steve will not be happy if that happens..he thinks I have a poor sense of rhythm. Ah well!

3rd Anniversary!!

Yes, it's my blogging anniversary folks! In 2006 I started this thing, and little did i know then that I would still be at it 3 years later!

Here are my first few posts (sans comments)
July 2006 posts

It's been fun, and I love doing it still. Sometimes I may not be in the mood to do it, but eventually I find myself anxious to do a post about something that interests me, whether it be on my designing......

gardening (I'm a fairweather gardener and a novice)

or my pets...

Edie (1994-2008)


and lovely Lulu!

Steven and our house projects....


my travels.....

or my favorite subject matter: FOOD!

Here's to blogging! I'll lift my virtual champagne flute to you and toast to another year or so of blogging!

scenes from a porch

I think Archie wants to go on the porch...let's go too.

Ahhh....looks like a nice day outside.. great for porch sitting.

oops! almost forgot....Lulu likes to hang out there too!

But she has to be tethered or she may run after some cute boy doggie walking by.

Lulu is resting in her favorite spot on the wicker love seat...

This is Steve's favorite place to study.
Here's a place to put your iced coffee..

and some citronella to ward off those pesky s'quitos. I up cycled this olive jar adding a pretty ribbon.

This is relaxing.
I planted geraniums and impatiens for porch prettiness.

I scored the white wicker love seat from craigslist for a sweet price.

Enjoy your summer! I will be in my fave room of the house.

Happy 4th of JULY!!

I just want to wish all my Americano relatives and friends a Happy Independence Day!
The photos here are from our computer room/study. It sort of has an American theme going on with pics of NYC, an ode to Hollywood and patriotism.

I hope you all have a nice day with bbq's and fireworks!

God Bless America and You!
