Sir Paul McCartney My Mother's Day Gift

Catie, Carly and I on top floor of parking garage going to see Paul McCartney

You may remember on Mother's Day Carly, John and Catie gave me a fabulous gift; tickets to see Paul McCartney.  I was so thrilled!  
It has taken me 51 years to see a member of my favorite all time musical group.  I am so thankful to the children for such a nice gift and I get to enjoy it with the girls!
Come on inside to see our fabulous trip....

I'm Going to Paint the Porch Ceiling 'Haint Blue'

I've been debating painting the porch ceiling blue.  I'm not superstitious.  I do however have several things that I won't talk about for fear others will think I'm crazy.  I'm not of course but strange things do happen around me, my family, our homes always seem to be built near some type of graveyard that people years before have either covered over or moved (I hope).
Family members in the past have spoken of "Haints" and I always thought their tales were very interesting.  Maybe I'll tell some of them one day.  Haints, you know ghosts, haunts etc.  In the old days people thought there were certain things you could do to keep the haints away from your home.
Great Aunt Luna and Uncle Mac lived in Charleston and the tales they and my Grandma Cora told about haints were quite interesting.
I tell you all of this to say I'm gonna do it, paint the Hibiscus House Porch Ceiling "Haint Blue".  Join me today as I discuss some of the history behind this Southern Tradition.....

Butterflies, Bees & Flowers!

Look at the bee

My Mama always walked her gardens daily to check the growth, see the blooms, and give everybody a tour.  It gave her such joy to show and tell us all about it.  I guess I get that honest because I love the garden walks too.  Today I'm on an early morning stroll to see what is blooming...
