~ I'm STILL around ~

Hello to all you, my bloggy girlies,

Just wanted to pop in, and say hello, thanks soo much for all the sweet emails and such, asking "where ooh where" I went .. I'm home, just soo BuSy !! It's smack in the middle of our summer, started early .. here, we got out June 5th .. Our youngest will be a sophomore next year, 15 still, soo Momma is the taxi, and entertainer maker, kinda .. He plays football, and his school, football is pretty much year round, he has 3 weeks off (dead weeks) soo, we have been going little places, Malibu, Palm Springs, Disneyland, and the BOYS leave to Mammoth for 7 days !! Can I just yell out a BiG YIPPEE SKIPPEE for Meee !! that will be my vacation, I have soo much planned, and places to go !! I LoVe my BoYs, BUT, can I just say this girlie Momma needs some down, QUIET time !! Lots of little FuN projects I want to do, while they are a hikin' and a fishin' ...

I've been playing in the gardens, and always enjoy cutting my pretty roses, lavender, and other herbs, and displaying them everywhere .. Nothing special, just sweetness all around .. Can you smell them .. I have soo many all over the yard, and my herbs are just spreading everywhere .. LoVe when the windows are open in the evening, and the smells just drift all around .. very comforting, and to think it's just the smell of Spring and Summer .. Believe it or not, it's the LiTtLE things in life that I find sooo much JoY in !! I'm soo easy to please !! I keep trying to convince my hubby of that .. hahaha ..

Well sweet ones, I'm off to In-n-Out burgers for dinner, and than guess what ?! Two of my favorite magazines came to little ole' mee in the mail, soo I'm coming home, getting in my jammies, making a cup of tea, and drifting off, to "lalala" land reading and looking at all the pretty, romantic pictures .. Always so inspiring to me !! Here's wishing you all a very relaxing, FuN evening .. hoping you are all diggin' your heels in the dirt, slowing down a BiT, and able to enjoy the very relaxing doggy days of Summer .. It's going to Zoom on by .. Sooo SlOw down a BiT, and just relax ..

BiG HuGs and lots of LoVe to each of you .. Go out and be a blessing, and Be Blessed BiGGeR BaCk !! It really works .. HONEST !! xo

  3. I was beginning to worry about you, so glad to hear you are just busy with your sweet boy. It is a good thing to do things with him, soon he will be gone like both mine are. Your roses and lavender and herbs are just beautiful. Tea, a magazine what could be better. I noticed you have the latest issue of Romantic Country. On page 6 under FAN MAIL I am the Ginger on the first comment. I had written on Fifi's blog to tell her how much I loved the magazine and she published it!!! Didnt even know she was going to do that. I was so excited. Have a great time while the boy is away. Lots of hiking and a fishin!!
    Hugs and love,
    Ginger

  4. Hi Tanza :) I knew you didn't fall off the face of the earth, lol :) I too have been busy with my youngest, who is 15...he's in the middle of his Driver's Ed right now, and he has Football workouts 3 days a week, so I'm always running him from one thing to the other. So I'm with you on needing a little "girlie" time! Enjoy your upcoming little vacation from the boys :)

    Warmest hugs to you, Brenda

  6. Sweet Tea ~ It is soooo good to have you back for a bit. Summer does bring us all into the busy season of hither, thither & yon!

    Have missed you terribly, sweet friend. Your roses are fabulous, can nearly smell that aroma & that wee bird house is so like mine ... don't you just love them to tuck in here & there!

    We have the kid-lings this Friday & then again next week ... so looking forward to them all being here.

    Have a beautiful summers eve ~

  10. Kids are busy at the age, and when you have to be a taxi, well, let's just say I remember it oh SO well! I know its summer, but it sure doesn't feel like it, does it? I'm not going to complain though! Have a wonderful summer.

    Take care, Sue
