My Weekend in Pictures

Okay, so not the whole weekend, just a glimpse. We went to KC on Friday. It poured most of the day, so we didn't get to do what we intended. Soooo, what's two girls to do? Shop.

Thursday night we went out to Aunt Karen's to see her flowers. The rain has really taken a toll on her flowers. They were not quite the same as last year. She showed us a nest of bunnies beside her home. The nest was practically in the middle of the yard. This one tried to escape. Isn't he handsome?

One of her many, many roses. I thought this one was exceptionally pretty.

I planted 5 containers of tomatoes. Hubby picked them out and so far we are doing well. He planted some smaller than cherry tomatoes. I can't remember the name, but this is the first ripe one. He picked it 2 days after I took this picture. He's gonna have quite a few. Notice the surpise petunias that popped up to the left. I must of had those in that pot last year. I sure don't remember them!

We usually like to go to St. Louis to watch the Cardinals and attend Fair St. Louis over the fourth. This year hubby didn't really want to go since the Cards were out of town. This I did not understand. Why on earth would they schedule the Cards to be out of town during this time. It kinda defunct our tradition.

So this year, he grille me and mom steaks. The we hung around with little to do because of the rain. We waited just long enough before they started the big firework show south of town. We pulled up to see the last 10 minutes. I got a couple of pics. The last one is my favorite. It makes me feel like I'm floating in space. The 4th of July always makes me a little sentimental. It was my dad's favorite holiday. We used to celebrate really, really big when I was growing up.

While I was at Aunt Karen's on Thursday I found a 4 leaf clover in her yard and I gave it to her. Tonight hubby and I were outside and found these. Actually he spotted at least one of them a couple of weeks ago. We hoped they'd get bigger but they hadn't. He suggested we pick them before we lost them.

I added them to my cookbook collection. You'll have to check my number on my sidebar to see what my new total count says.
Hopefully I'll be a better blogger this week and have something to blog about. I see things on the horizon, just not immediately. Don't give up on me. I'm still here and I'm still visiting all my favorite places.
Have a great week everyone!!

Wonderful photos! And how neat to find those 4-leaf clovers! I remember finding some when I was little. I wish I had saved them.

Have a great week!

You're a good blogger! Aw, you are one of my faves.

Send some of those tomatoes my way. I am missing homegrown veggies. My neighbor was rather generous, and always left bags on our porch. I might have to attempt veggie growing again. It was never something in which I excelled. I believe pissing off people is about my only talent.

Hi....the little bunny is adorable...we have them all over our yard...big ones that come out only at night? And I don't think I have ever found a 4 leaf clover...I guess that explains my crappy luck!
