Five on Friday

Like grains of sand through the hourglass, so our the days of our lives---no I've never watched this show, I don't do soap operas,  but the way the weeks keep running away that's the way it feels.  I'm again joining in with Amy, and all the other Friday Bloggers, for Five on Friday.



Cooler week, if you can call high 80's and lower 90's cooler, and a bit of rain each day.  The worst of the thunder and lightning stayed away from us thank goodness.  Everything is growing like mad, except the tomatoes who have pretty much decided to die.


Yesterday was running errands, picking up fremd Geld at the bank, doctor's visit for Mac, pick-up water, pick-up pants that have been tailored, go to the grocery store.   What kind of fremd Geld you say, well, that would be telling where we're going and I'd rather tell you when we get back.

Second is my new header, isn't he a sweetie, just right for the Fourth of July.  No fireworks for us this year, we'll just enjoy the neighbors, plus the old fort down the road for us always puts on a historical display including cannon firing.

Third are my lilies:  Ginger Lilies and 2 types of Day Lilies, all are doing so well this year.































Fourth is my present from Mac.  I raved so much about Mama's Mercantile's bobbins that he went online to Ebay and found me a Portuguese lace bobbin.  It's made of wood and feels so good to touch, so smooth and tactile.   I love it.












And Fifth  is my table set for the 4th of July, all red, white and blue.

Hope you have a great weekend wherever you are.

  8. We are cooler today than we have been...but we haven't been quite as hot as you! We will go see fireworks in our little village. They light up over the ocean and are so pretty I hate to miss them. Happy fourth of July!

  10. Love your header, and love the flowers too.

    You can send some of your heat over to the UK ... it's July but so often feels like an autumnal month not a summer one!!!

    Enjoy your weekend and happy 4th of July

    All the best Jan

  12. Happy Fourth of July! Your lilies are looking terrific, but I'm sorry to hear your tomatoes are in their death throes. Now I'm off to follow that link and see what a Portuguese lace bobbin is. :-)

  14. A smiling puppy for the Fourth of July is refreshing. Ours don't smile much at this time of year, between all the thunder and fireworks around here! Beautiful lilies. Happy Fourth! 🇺🇸

  18. Awww! I love the new header! The road across from the house is lined with the same orange lilies you have. They're starting to open now. By the weekend it will look like an orange wave is stretching down the road. Aren't they beautiful!

  19. Hi Janet! Still playing catch up from the holiday weekend but still wanted to just pop by and say hi & see your 5! Love them all - especially your beautiful lilies and your table setting looked lovely. I hope you had as much fun this past weekend as I did. It was jam packed but so much fun!!
    Blessings on the rest of your week. xoxo

What's Cooking?

The kitchen smells heavenly.  I made vegetable beef soup, think it's the first time I've done that.  It's for lunch tomorrow and...
