Flowers & A Trip to the Most Magical Place in the World!!

Hello.  Hope everyone is enjoying a beautiful summer day. It is perfect it!!  I am ashamed at how long I have been away from blogging.  I feel bad too that I don't leave comments like I should either.  So many beautiful blogs to try to keep up on!!  We've been busy like the rest of you. It finally quit raining so we (my husband) were able to finish up all of the planting and spraying and and fertilizing.  Now we are waiting for the wheat to be ready.  Maybe a week or so yet.  I've been busy in the flower beds and with a little crafting.  It's too nice to be indoors!!  Wanted to share some of the flowers with you.

 The baby's breath behind the angel is light pink. It doesn't really show up in the picture.

I picked up the neatest thing the other day. They are LED Solar Lids. They fit on a small mouth mason jar.  They work like any other solar light and come on at night. 

View from our front porch this morning.  The corn is so tall and I just love the is just so pretty.

JoJo was out scouting this morning and would not turn around for her picture.

We spent last week at Walt Disney World.  Being the prim lover that I am, I just had to take pictures inside the Liberty Tavern Inn.  First, the food was amazing.....all you can eat.  Salad, rolls, mashed potatoes, veggies, ham, roast beef, turkey, and dressing.  Dessert crisp and vanilla ice cream.  Yummo!!  The kids loved it.  Anyway, while sitting waiting to be called, I took lot of pics. 

This was my favorite thing.  It was sitting right beside the bench I was on.  I'm sure I heard it tell me it wanted to come live in Ohio.  The kids were teasing me about checking my bag before we left.  Oh, if it only would have had a price tag!!!

The kids in front of the castle before the fireworks.  

The spectacular fireworks!!!

We had a great time.  It was very hot and crowded, although the store workers said it wasn't really that busy. Ugh.....I wouldn't have wanted to be around too many more people!!  We stayed at one of the resorts and took the bus to the parks. We averaged 9 miles of walking a day.  Whew......good thing, we needed to walk off all that good food.   The girls and I decided our favorite ride was the Aerosmith roller coaster at Hollywood Studios. We waited over an hour, but it was soooooo worth it.   Great memories and lots of pics to get developed.  I'll save that for a rainy day.....might take awhile.

Be sure to stop on over to Early Work Mercantile later tonight and tomorrow to check out all the new listings. Today is also our 21st anniversary.  Crazy how time flies isn't it??!!

That's it for today. Seems like I don't post much, but when I do, look out!! Thanks for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day.
