Sunday was Another Busy Work And Play Day!

Smile more than you cry, give more than you take, and love more than you hate.

The year is moving quickly!!!

First things first, I raised our flag back to full-mast and then took in the trash cans.  Meanwhile, Mary cleaned up the patio furniture, and they look brand new now.  So I could be with her in the back yard, I headed to The He Shed and installed some additional shelving, so now most everything is off the floor and hung up!

At 10:30 AM, Mary stopped and fixed a wonderful breakfast for us.  At 11:00 AM, I came inside, and we watched out TV show together.  He had another good message for us this morning.  The Pastor is a wise man and makes things clear!

At noon we headed back to our chores with me cleaning the workbench and Mary trimming the roses and pulling the dear petunias.  We are going to have our landscaper but in a combination of Vinca Roses and Impatiens.

Did You Know? Catharanthus roseus, commonly known as bright eyes, Cape periwinkle, graveyard plant, Madagascar periwinkle, old maid, pink periwinkle, rose periwinkle, is a species of flowering plant in the family Apocynaceae. It is native and endemic to Madagascar, but grown elsewhere as an ornamental and medicinal plant.

Keep me in the shade!

Vinca Rosea enjoys the sun while Impatiens enjoy the shade, so our landscaper will have fun!  “Roses are red, violets are blue, I’m schizophrenic, and so am I.”

Did You Know? Impatiens walleriana, also known as busy Lizzie, balsam, sultana, or simply impatiens, is a species of the genus Impatiens, native to eastern Africa from Kenya to Mozambique. The Latin specific epithet walleriana honours a British missionary, Horace Waller.

I needs the sun!

I thought of an old quote to tell Mary, “Flowers are like friends; They bring color to your world.”  I also had to tell her, “At my age flowers scare me.’

At 4:00 PM, we stopped, got cleaned up, and headed to Rockwell’s for dinner before dancing in Chino!  Yes, we are full of energy!

We had a wonderful meal, and we were ready to dance the night away!

After dinner, we stopped back by the house before getting on the freeway.  We made plans for Monday as Mary has to work and I have to hold down the fort again!
