So now that fall has arrived I have this set of mind of wanting to cook roasts and cover the patio furniture and plant chrysanthemums. I want to re set the light timers (outside) and sweep leaves of the walk with a real broom. Except there are a few problems
number one it's to hot to cook or eat a roast.
Number two no use in covering the patio furniture when I sit on it every day.
Three I will plant some flowers and set the light timers.
Sweep the leaves? First off no leaves to rake for one (I actually miss that part of our old house) and it's to hot to do things like that. Rod and I would go out side about 11 every day and get on the yard tractor and hitch up the old lawn broom and go over our almost acre yard at least every other day in the fall. The first time we raked leaves at the house we didn't even own it (it was in contract, vacant and closing date was like a week away) I wanted to rake the leaves up in the front courtyard so we would not track all of them in when we moved in. That first time we raked one evening for about 4 hours and bagged 17 industrial sized bags full and that was only the tip of our ice burg the next year we learned about lawn brooms and leaf blowers (and yes there were way to many to mulch).But it's memories like that the draw me into fall looking forward to cool mornings, hot afternoons, and hazy nights.

so much

Where Do I begin again? I. Have. No. Ideal. I'm going to hit the ground running here and just say the past few years has held a great amount of change for my husband and I. We have lived new places made new friends and started over again. We are movers and shakers I guess. Not really just doing what we can to make life feel comfortable as possible. so lets get off and running, I haven't had a scrap space for almost a year, its been well over a year since I've used a cricut but not the gypsy. The cards most fast and quick and not picture worthy. As some things stay the same I'm still into clean lines its still a timeless favorite. So much of what you will see is rockin it old school or cute and quick and a few Pintrest inspirations. I'm a girl on the run so more quick than anything. For the first time in three years I plan not to travel for a few months and that makes crafting, blogging, and everything else less complicated and room for relaxation and fun. Enjoy the…

I want to live in Bexley

Of course you will not know this song however i must express myself

I want to live in Bexley
So I can drive a big car
I want to live in Bexley
So I can act like a big star

At least that's the way I remember the parody song in my head. This lovely song was composed by two male disk jockeys who hosted the pop music station in my home town. At the time Bexley was "the" place to live. So those who cant afford to live there naturally make fun of the people who do (do men really change as they grow older?) Today I was thinking about that song clipie and I went to Springhill Tn, drove through Franklin Tn, then we came to two little towns called Brentwood and Oak Hill. I must say I have seen some huge homes in my time I've been to parade homes worth millions and had more than 10,000 sq feet so yes I've seen big. However I have never seen a community of homes so big I would not be able to gander upon how big they were. Let my try to compare most of them, they made our old tow…


Ahh so I know no updates of late. A most lazy poster am I. I ve been not liking the current upload system for my pictures so that why I don't post often. Life is ok. We are still in Fort Worth. Traffic boggles my imagination daily I spend about an hour on the road everyday and its only 6 miles to hubby's work and back. Bright lights, big city, crappy traffic.

Do we like it? It's not the worst place we have lived. You'll find original Texans are friendly, problem is not many are around. Of course the possibility could be maybe I'm not that likable. I doubt I'll ever be able to answer that.

We have never bought a house for many reasons the main being ours in B.G. never sold. It sits after price reductions and after every real estate analysis you could think of. 30k plus under market value and yes I've had a recent estimate. The other is taxes. Taxes are about 6000 on a .25 acre lot here . so even if you buy a little house you have a horrid bill. In Arlington …
