I am also joining Susan at A Southern Daydreamer for Outdoor Wednesday #22.
I just found it..what a great idea!!

My Inspiration is from Tina at Cherry Hill Cottage

My inspiration came from Tina at Cherry Hill Cottage . She had her little porch swing all dolled up painted in RED and cute pillows tossed on it. I adopted this house when I moved in with John... the yard was a disaster....we are working on it slowly but surely. This swing was tossed aside and the canopy was missing (later found out the gardener took it to the dumpster). I wasn't ging to let that stop me..I knew I could make this ugly duckling pretty again. It sat around for over a year until I saw Tina's swing..that was it!! The next thing I knew, I was painting it red and making pillows for it. These were all of 10 minute pillows out of dish towels I found today at Ross. I will make some cuter ones when I have more time. So there you have it...my first INSPIRATIONAL WEDNESDAY project.

Thanks Tina!!

Warm Hugs,

Well, I NEVER!!! Okay...I WILL ACCEPT!!

While waiting for Marshall's to open this morning, I went over to Ross (I was in the mood to spend money and didn't want to wait). I was standing there reading the signs on the windows waiting for that store to open. Then I saw it!!! Yep..saw it, read it, mulled it over through my mind and thought...YIPEEE!! I get 10% off of my total purchase today!! Then, I woke up and came to my senses...YIKES!!! I am now in "that box". You know, the one that reads 55-65!! I am now at THAT age..the one where everywhere you go...you are now considered a ....mmm....shall I dare speak those words....those that I have avoided for 55 years!!! Yes...I am now considered a ..."SENIOR CITIZEN"!!!

Dictionary: senior citizen (sēn'yər-sĭt'ĭ-zən) adj
n. A person of relatively advanced age, especially a person at or over the age of retirement.

What? Where? When did this happen? When did 55 become the NEW RETIREMENT age?
I must have missed something somewhere, sometime? Perhaps I just have Alzheimers...or dimentia...and don't remember hearing about the change.
Okay....I have calmed down before I have a heart attack..seizure....or something that will send me to the hospital, then the nursing home!!

I have only just begun living!! Really...I even have a check list (see below)

Kids gone..check!
