Time Is Swiftly Passing

Good evening friends. I was visiting another blog this morning and glanced over to the side bar and there was a picture of the last post I had done and under it ,,, 4 weeks ago.  Hmmmm,,, could it have really been that long already?  It seemed winter just dragged by, however since the weather has gotten pretty, time seems to be flying.  So,,, I made it a point to sit long enough this evening to visit with all of you.

When we last visited, it was too cool to visit on the porch.  Do you have a porch?  Maybe it is just a Southern thing, but I just love the front porch.  Until it gets too hot to sit out there, you will find me there most evenings after supper.  A few weeks back we purchased two huge ferns for the porch.  I had tried growing them out there before and had no luck, however I saw on Pinterest what to add to the water and the proper way to water them.  So I have two huge ferns and two swinging baskets that are doing wonderful.  And it just tickles this southern gal's fancy!

Yes, nothing says The South like a front porch, and ferns.
As I have told you many times, it is so hard to find goodies around here at prices you can afford.  We are blessed to have a family member who remodels homes and does repair work.  Occasionally he comes across an item he thinks Mr P. might want to rebuild for his craft show.  A good while back he got this child's roll top desk.  I knew immediately Mr. P. was NOT going to sell this.  It was going to be mine. 
Last weekend the mister decided to get busy working on it.  I was so excited.  I even visited him in the shop,{which I do not do often}  to check on it's progress.. By night fall, it was finished and in the house.

I am so proud of it.

On Thursday of last week, two of my besties and myself went on an overnight trip to a near by Casino.  We use to do this so often, however it had been over a year since we had been off together.
We had so much fun!  What do you do at 3am in the morning when you are up all night?
We still haven't figured out what to call this meal?  To late for supper, too early for breakfast,,,hmmmm ,, but it sure was good.  I had super good luck for a change, so on Saturday the girls and myself went on a shopping trip.
It was a good trip and we found lots of goodies..  Mostly things we probably didn't need, but sure had fun.  And just a few minutes ago the phone rang, and Holly wants to leave in the morning and take a quick trip to the Great Smokey Mts.  HeHe,,, sounds like a winner to me.
While I have been busy running around and having fun, Mr. P. has been busy building in the shop.

Well, that is about it for this visit, Hope all of you are having a wonderful summer and life is treating you well. Until next time...

  4. Hey Friend
    I've missed you but I see your a busy bee as usual.
    I love your porch.
    I put my ferns in a big ole bucket of water a few days and let the water soak the roots.

  6. Love your porch! I have had some ferns the last couple of summers but I don't think they ever got quite that big. That desk is adorable.
