Sunny Mayberry Monday


lake, azaleas

The recent rains have raised our lake levels nicely,  azaleas are popping out everywhere as the dogwood blooms disappear, the sun is shining…but it was 43 when I got up this morning, despite the calendar indicating the waning days of March.  That is too chilly to sit on the deck, Peaches.

I went on a Lady Slipper patrol yesterday afternoon, discovering 3 more lovelies beside the driveway, plus 4 more blooming out by the road.  They make me happy.

Earlier I discovered my single slipper from last year here by our home is now a triplet!

I need now to get excited about climbing up there and pulling away those dead limbs…maybe when it warms up a bit.

We have perhaps unleashed a little disharmony with that birthday steel drum.  Haley said Macey was downstairs playing scales on it first thing Sunday morning.  She and Logan are now thinking more insulation is needed in the basement ceiling (with no reflection on her musical ability, of course!).  That girl will have the drum all figured out, and playing real songs on it in absolutely no time.  She has rhythm all the way down to her tapping toes.

Hello Monday.  And laundry.  And working tunes blasting away for my own working pleasure.

It’s just another Monday in paradise, y’all!

You meant the waning days of April right. March is long gone.

It's chilly here this morning but it will be 85 degrees today so that's okay with me.

I wondered about the noise of the steel drum. Kids want to play when they want to play and they don't care who they wake up. Bless their hearts.

Have a fabulous day honey. Big hugs to you and tons scritches to the babies. ♥♥♥

Growing up with many instrument playing people in the house - piano, guitars (electric & accoustic), drums and all sorts of percussion instruments, including cymbals - There were rigid rules, especially regarding the times they could be played... HINT: Whilst anyone was asleep was NOT one of the allowed times.

Rain. We are getting plenty of it yet again. April is living up to her reputation.

Have yourself a lovely day! big hugs xoxo

Good for Macey practicing scales - I'm sure the early morning practice won't happen as often, as the "new" wears off. Hugs!

Lol... Scales in the morning. Go girl! Perfect way to aggravate your sibs ;) Love it!

Happy spring!

Well I'm late again but I'm here honey! Podunk is lovely this time of year for sure. Enjoy! The lake looks wonderful too, I know you will have lots of fun there this summer!
