Five on Friday

It's time to join in with the rest of the bloggers at Amy's Love Made My Home site.  It's a beautiful day here in coastal Georgia, but seeing as it's Memorial Day weekend the forecast is for rain, starting tomorrow and going right through Monday.  I don't know how many times we've planned get-to-gethers on Memorial Day and had them rained out.  We don't even bother any more.

But that's ok, we'll be doing a Low Country Boil for the 2 of us.  I'll write about that on Monday.

Here's my five, in no particular order.

One:  I had to go see my Retina specialist on Tuesday to have my wonky eye lasered.  It went quickly, though it was a little achy afterwards.  It tends to be my dry eye and the laser may have dried it more.  But it quickly settled down and all is well.  While I was having it done Mac went and bought me flowers for being a brave little girl.





Two:   Mac cut some Hydrangeas for me and I changed my kitchen plate to match the colors.  I think this is the first year we've had lavender Hydrangeas.




Three:   The roses on some of our smaller bushes are blooming and the colors are gorgeous.









Four:   The pool is open!  I went in it today and I didn't scream, it felt wonderful.  Mac has done so much work on it and now it's my turn to start netting out debris and brushing down the sides.  I expected the water to be cooler, but it felt great, I'd keep it this temperature all year if I could.

Mac dries his paintings on the deck because it's so hot out there.  Since he took this picture he's brought out the chairs for the table and the umbrella.


Five:  The laundry room has been put back together and finally stopped smelling like new paint.  Next I need to paint part of the back hall.  It's been painted once, but life has banged it up a bit.





That's my Five, hope you have a good weekend wherever you are.

  1. Such a heartfelt 5 on Friday. I hope your eyes are better, even for the dryness. The flowers in the pots are lovely and so are the hydrangea, we have a bush in the front - that has to flower for the season, so maybe I will share that in the future when its in bloom. Made me smile that Mac dries his paintings near the pool!

  8. Lovely flowers, and I'm glad your eye is healing. Your husband was very thoughtful to buy you flowers! A low country boil? I've never heard of such a thing. I'll be back Monday to see what it is. Have a great weekend! Hopefully you are surprised by good weather.

  9. Glad your eyes have settled down after the laser treatment. I'm not keen on it myself, but when it's necessary it has to be done. Your husband is always very thoughtful and it was sweet of him to buy you flowers. You must be pleased to get the paint job done on the laundry even if there's more to do. Looking good. Enjoy your weekend. The pool looks inviting!

  10. Glad your eyes are ok, they are such precious things, how lovely to have some prety flowers as a reward for going through the lazer treatment. When I had my eye lazered for a tear in the back of the eye I didn't know it was going to happen which was perhaps a good thing and remember how dry and sore the eye felt afterwards. I love your hydrangeas:)

  13. Awww, Mac is treating you well. I wish it was warm enough here to be in the pool - five degrees C here today. Gorgeous hydrangeas. Our soil is so acidic ours are only a sapphire blue. Pretty laundry room - great job!

  14. Hope your eye is completely recovered now. That pool looks great - swimming pools wouldn't get much use in this country, it isn't warm enough most of the time:)

Saturday in the Swamp

Beautiful cold day here, down to 36º last night and only expected to reach 60º today, but the sky is blue and it looks wintery. Lots to get...
