Pics and a few words

Porphyrophobia is a morbid fear of the color purple

I've been diligently working outside trying to get my flower beds together since the weather has been cooperating. So looking forward to going camping this summer. Lancaster will probably this month sometime or early in July. I want to take a one day trip with my daughter also. We liked Baltimore Inner Harbor a few years back so that may be where she wants to do again. We loved the Aquarium that is there.

Pics of the hanging basket at GW for $1.99 and filled it with Marigolds.......

My flowers my daughter gave me for Mother's Day. I planted them in this red enamel pan.
Flower bed in progress........
Along side of home, still in progress also.......

Well, off to do some laundry and I have homework due tonight so must get it done, plus I'm going later to West View to look at a FOrd Explorer I may buy so that I can tow my Pop-up tent camping. My little Ford Fiestiva weights less than the camper, lol. It won't work that way, lol.

You'all enjoy your day and take care...

Pics from this weekend

These first 5 pics are from a town called "Scenery Hill" I got there pretty early therefore not so much activity. This past weekend was "National Pike Days" A celebration of the National Road...Rt. 40. There are plenty of activities here on the weekends. Plenty of yard sales and flea markets too. I really did find that much. I got just a few pics. The first one shows how you can see for miles.
Secondly, is the main street, third is a sign on the house of the fourth pic...see if you can read it, I laugh, it says House of Entertainment, lol! and the last one is of this house that has many antiques in it that are for sale. The last few times I was there, they weren't open though. It's really packed inside with the most wonderful pieces.

It definitely was a beautiful day!

The following are of the Wagon Train that was in Hopwood, PA. It did surprise me though this year, the wagons had rubber wheels on them. In past years, they were all wodden as such in the one that is black.

That's all for now
Until next time

Pond in the making and a rainbow

Here are a few pics from tonight. A faint rainbow and my pond in the making if and when the rain stops, lol. There's also a pic of some baby Canadian geese along a river where I went this past weekend to check out about doing some camping at.

Well, I hear thunder in the background, guess I'll do what I can do before it gets here. Everyone have a good evening.

Until next time......

I just had to come back and add what came a little later after the rainbow.....are you ready for this????? Take a look! Is this not the month of May? It's hail the size of small peas, lol....unbelievable. They say it's going down to 36 tonight with a frost possibility.

What a scare!

Yesterday it wasn't raining in the mid morning hours so AI decided to go out and pull some weeds around where the pond is. So I'm out there but I can still hear the phone ringing, and I asked Ed if he was expecting a call from anyone and he said no and I wasn't either, so we let the machine get it. Low and behold I can here someone saying I'm at the hospital emergency room........YIKES!!! So I run in and listen to the message and it's my Dad saying that he's there and that's it...nothing more. So here I go running around thinking the worst of course because my dad never goes to the hospital or even likes to go to the doctor. Mind you he is 71. To him, they just want your money. So I hurry and change my clothes and grab my purse and out the door I went, trying not to race there and it's about 15 miles away. So off I go and I get there and I'm walking to find where to go because they are renovating the place and I find him setting in the waiting area...he had been there since 12 noon and it was about 2 at this time. I live right next door and you would think he would say something, go figure. Well anyway, I sit down trying not to show panic and say "what's wrong?" He had been feeling sick lately and had gone to see the doctor and took some medicine, but he just couldn't shake the cough, constant coughing. So he said he went to one of the MedExpress' as they call them here where there is no waiting. They took xrays and said that he had to go right now over to the hospital because there was something on his chest there he went. Why in the world couldn't he of said something in the message that that was why he was there.....but noooooooo,lol, scare me to death. So we waited another hour and a half before we were all done, total time12 noon -5:30 pm.........basically just waiting for this and that and then results. The result was that his white blood cells were a little high and that he may have s ome pneumonia started. They gave him some prescriptions to fill and he went home and I went to Walmart to fill them. Oh brother did I wait there.....I was disgusted. It took them what was supposed to be a 35 minute wait that turned into an hour and a half. Not that they we significantly busy or anything just SSSlllllooooowwwwww as a turtle. So there I was.....scared to death and frustrated by the time I got back home....but dad is doing better today....thank goodness and I hope he never does that again.

Have a good Sunday
