Old-Time-Radio.....for free!

 Hubby and I  were listening to Old Time Radio in the car, an old Phil Harris & Alice Faye radio show.  Something about Phil winning a pretty baby contest....and it was so funny.  I laughed my head off, but hubby merely smiled, so.....  I enjoyed it for both of us.  I did find this site right away,  and am so pleased with it.  I just watched, 'whats my line' off of this site while doing my posting. By the way,  I didn't click on any 'download' buttons.  Just clicked on the main menus etc.


 And...ta da!  More books!  We happened upon a $1.00 a box book sale.  At first glance around I didn't see anything I wanted, until....I noticed lots of old children's books.  You can almost always be sure of a good clean read with them.  So I brought home 2 boxes to enjoy and share and pass on.


This fern and violet are amazing to me, that they would do this well under a flourescent ceiling light. Wow....whoever would have thought!

Jesus said, 'I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the
Father, but by me.' John chapter 14, verse 6.  'For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved'. Romans10:13

By the way, have you checked out Susan Branch's blog?  It is delightful!

Cosmos....you light up my world!

The vibrant colors of Cosmos really do 'light' up my world.  Love their intense colors!  I have planted this color and a beautiful red/magenta color.


 I pulled this page out of one of my magazines. I love the 'Grandma's Kitchen.(sign)..meals and memories made here'.  Isn't that the sweetest thing.  I also love the  red and white charm....and that silhouette of the children, don't you?


And mobiles'....well.  They are one of the most fascinating, twirling things to love also.  I pulled this  page out of my magazine as well.  This would be such fun to make with the grandchildren....or any age.  Any age at all. =)     Wishing you a blessed Lord's Day tomorrow, and many more to come.

Lucy, trying to get a tan...

 I bought Lucy at Saturday's yard sale and her feet were soiled....so....I bathed her and put her out to dry, but it looks like the rascal is enjoying herself and sunbathing!


Our Violet, enjoying the summer weather! She makes me laugh every single day.  And so affectionate!

Did you ever.....

Did you ever see a Dahlia like this?  I plunked down my money without a second thought and its been blooming faithfully for me.  The garden is planted now.  The new baby current bushes are doing great but our little wee blueberry bushes are struggling.  Summertime seems to have come early.  My Iris and brilliant orange poppies are blooming gorgeously. It was 92 yesterday....too hot for me.

I planted a tiny geranium and put it on the my kitchen window sill.  An ode to cheerfulness =)

If you have a Mac  pc and your magic mouse won't glide where you want it to,  try running it across the palm of your other hand for a temporary 'fix'.

I read this and liked it....'The future is something which everyone reaches at the rate of 60 minutes an hour, whatever he does, whoever he is." C.S. Lewis

Want something fun to look for?  Amazon has loads of these jigsaw puzzles by Susan Brabeau and are they special but  pricey.  I got one at a thrift store and didn't realize what a gem I'd found.  Stay cool!

Psalm 105: "O give thanks unto the Lord, call upon his name: make known his deeds among the people"    I'm memorizing this =)   first 5 verses...

At last, a tenant.

This bird house was only meant to be pretty....and we stuffed the door with steel wool so the birds would'nt make themselves cozy.  Last year that worked, but this year.....weatherbeaten and in poor condition,  a tiny bird or two fly in and out frequently.  Much to my initial surprise.  But, thats spring for you,  bird nests on the windowsill, and in a patio shrub there is a nest also.

We brought home a 'chimney-a' and I can hardly wait to try it out.  A nice cozy fire will be to nice at dusk, don't you agree?  Trouble is to much rain and it has to be perfectly dry to build the fire in or it will crack.

We are all about getting a garden planted, well, hubby is.  So....another chilly...overcast day....here we come. The sunshine will return.....and the sooner the better.

ps. still loving my 'Magic Puzzles' app, just finished up the 'Prague' collection. (hope I spelled that right)

Beautiful flowers

I found a patch of violets tucked next to a tree...and took myself a little bouquet which I tucked into my bracelet band.  It was heavenly to look at!  There is something very special about royal purple, isn't there.

We just had a great week of Revival Meetings. Praise God for every encouragement, every blessed truth.

God's handiwork

Aren't these beautiful?  A few weeks ago we took a little trip to the 'Creation Museum' in Kentucky.  What a wonderful place. 'Never pass up an opportunity to enjoy nature's beauty-its the handwriting of God.'  taken from 'Our Daily Bread'.1983

The link above, that is highlighted...is really nice and offers a Virtual Tour of the  Museum.  I just tried the virtual tour and it is impressive. =) I am enjoying seeing the Museum again....the building of Noah's Ark was fantastic, and the many wax people were very realistic,  enabled with speech and movement.

For now...I am able to post using Google Chrome instead of El Capitan. I am thankful.
