For the kid in all of us!

This old ugly door is in my kitchen, not far from my beautiful new range, and it leads to to the hallway that leads to my bedroom, kinda sorta somewhat! Anyway I hate it. It is just a cheap old door. I have always wanted a special door there but have hit a road block in finding the perfect special one.
So....... a $10 can of chalkboard paint later...... I now LOVE IT!!!
(yes I still have work to be finished on the drywall that has been started for quite sometime now. I know. I know.)

and.....just about 30 minutes later it looks like this.......... I can understand Emma, she is 6 years old.........but Morgan? She is almost 15 years old!!!!!! I still love it!!


And this little chalk bag I whipped up in about a minute!



I had to brag a little on my garden tonight too. This trumpet vine has been here for at least 4 years and not nary a bloom til now!! I now love it too!!





An evening picture of my garden.




Aerial shot, almost aerial anyway, from my back door. We had sooooooo much rain til last weekend and now it is soooooo dry on the surface. The heat and wind sure does dry some ground quickly this time of year. So we had to get the irrigation set up last night from our pond. A good set up I might add. We are truly blessed to have a big fishpond that we can use to water our garden!!!! I also have the garden almost weed free too. I said almost! My nephew says you have to leave some tall weeds to shade the plants from too much sun!! So that's what I'll tell anyway ;-)
Well no babies as of yet....Violet is about to burst at the seams.... the other 2 not far behind.
I now have about 8 eggs with little peep holes in the incubator so I should have babies in the morning. I am not getting up in the middle of the night to check on them because I am just too darned tired. I can hardly type this right now from my serious fatigue..... better go to bed. Goodnight!!

I love it!!!! I want one too! But I don't think Eric would be as passive as Daddy:) So I'll just have to settle for a framed one hanging on my kitchen door!

Wow, at least 5 gold stars to you for your garden..it looks immaculate. And the bloom on your trumpet vine..it's God's hand blessing your place. And for your door, don't you wish that sometimes you couldn't wipe away the memories...that is very clever of you!
