Just Checking In and Be Back Later!

(photo from http://www.designspongeonline.com/ Corbin's southern home)
Just a quick post to let you know that I will (or one of my critters) be drawing a name SOMETIME today (hopefully) for the giveaway. I've taken the day off from my day job because I have vacation days to use and it's supposed only be in the 70's today! WaaHoo!
I have so much to do! I plan on pulling the annuals that aren't doing so well out of the flower bed between the sidewalk and the street and replacing them with moss rose -portulaca.
THEN I plan on cutting limbs off of my neighbors tree (refer to past posts about him!) and trimming his hedge back so that MY hanging plants can get some SUN! To be honest, I've just about had it with HIM!
His front lawn that borders my flowerbeds is overgrown with weeds...I think I will spray his yard with weed killer! I guess he doesn't noticed them because of all the cars parked on top of them!!! As you all know by now. I'm passive aggressive (but working on it) and I plan on throwing all the limbs and hedge clippings INTO his yard. In the past I've dragged them down to my backyard ravine area. NO MORE!!! That lazy A-HOLE! I have no idea how many people live in that house but judging from all the vehicles, you'd think one of them could come out and trim their hedge and mow the grass. (When they do mow it, it's always SO high that there's mounds of grass allover their yard and all over the sidewalk.
OK...I'm climbing down off of my soapbox now.
SO, I will do the drawing later today - OH wait, I do have my monthly dinner thing tonight...so it COULD be tomorrow (sorry) but you will know the winner tomorrow at the latest!
So, I must run to the hardware store! I need paint for my picnic table (I want to paint it a BRIGHT GLOSS WHITE!) and I need bags of cement, I have these molds and I'm going to make a cobblestone area at the side of the house. I'll show pics later.........
I quickly checked all my favorite blogs (but left no comments, I'll be back to do that!)
but I'm so glad I did because one of the blogs http://www.designspongeonline.com/ showed this front porch of a house and I'm going to go get THAT color!!!! (OH, yeah! I am also planning on putting up shutters)
but take a look at that front porch! I'm going to try to make the front of my house look like that!
Well, I'm off! (hopefully I can get the weed whacking done while the neighbor guy is at work!) Otherwise it could get UGLY!

Hi Cindi! I am back! :) I love the front of this house. I wish I had a porch (sob!). Did I win Agnes???? If I did, WOOOO HOOOOO!!!! I will send you an email. Please don't get in a fist-fight with your neighbor. Think of your hands, Cindi. You'll need them for all that gardening and painting. hee hee! I missed you - glad to be home. xox! Pam

OMG I thought I'd left you a thank you .... for the most wonderful gift of my black kitty with a broken heart... but I don't see it anywhere!

I love my kitty and he sits with me every day in my studio!

I can't thank you enough!!!!

Neighbors... ick... sounds like you got quite the bums...

I've been there with neighbors also.. so glad to move away.

Are you kidding your hubby built that whole house, travels and sends piles of $$$ to you??? Now that is a keeper... plus I love your house!

I love Betsy Johnson and remember her well in the 60's and 70's


Thanks for stopping by my blog and tossing your name in the virtual hat for the mystery faerie!

Oh Pattee! I was only kidding! I don't even HAVE a husband! and I'd only want one IF he sent me big piles of cash! Those pics are of my DREAM house but if I ever get it- you are welcome to the guest room! LOL!
Oh, and don't worry, you already sent me a Thank You, but it wasn't necessary, I'm just glad you liked the kitty!
