May has bid farewell, June is here.

 

Where is time flying? Wasn’t it just New year’s Eve? Now school is letting out, graduation, grilling is in full swing, and so is allergy season. Let’s not forget the bees. They too build their homes on Your property. They seek out to build fancy mansions in least expecting locations. I have extra special fun with these pests, I wear the skin so soft. The bees fly up to me and immediately fly the opposite direction.  Did you know bees can also survive under water in your fountain? I watched one fly into the water to cool off one day swimming around thinking it would drown. NO sirree, after his swim,the refreshed insect climbed to the top and dried off before flying away. No I didn’t have a tiny towel to offer him plus I don’t like  insects hanging around with me. I have friends of my own. Aah the lazy days of summer are here.

I don’t know about you, but every year my lawn and I have our struggles. I water often, and my grass likes to stay a dry shade of brownish green shall we say. Very aggravating to me. Considering my neighbor is a lawn care specialist. He waters not so often, I baby my yard and guess what? His looks better than mine. I told him is was not fair. He doesn’t understand it either. I am seriously planning on artificial turf. I will the envy of the block. I am glad I don’t live in a neighborhood where there is no serious competition for yard dominance. Most of the block would opt out anyway. They work five days a week and like to relax the weekends. I will say I have good neighbors- we live on  close knit block. We live near the river- you hear the jet skis and boats on summer afternoons.

I have friends who live on an exclusive block, all the homes are beautifully kept. Thousands are spent on the lawn, flowers and fertilizer.When I need yard inspiration, drive around the neighborhood. Then come home to reality. All kidding aside, I have blessed with my home. My husband and I purchased it together before his passed away.  I was pregnant with our son when we bought our forever home. A few years ago, some friends helped my up the paint inside and out. I have a nice kept home with brownish-green grass.

Do you want your home to always look it’s best? Helpful hint that really works. Pretend your long-lost best friend is coming to visit next week. It is amazing the results you can achieve in just a weekend. You finish project you put off since the second child was born and never got around to. It is amazing what a couple well chosen accessories can do to take the home from bland to grand.

For some the kids are gone, so the lawn is their pride and joy. They have the yards to prove it. Some couples purchase expensive beautiful motor homes to explore the County, some join a travel club and following one another in the sometimes unique trailers. what a great way to meet new friends. Have fun trying to contact them. Some couples live on exclusive golf courses and start a new hobby, while other couples plan the next get-together. the second half of life is fun and exciting with new horizons to explore.People ask me how I plan on spending my summer, The same, working, caring for my mom and of course my passion writing. I love my job in Health care, I am mending my relationship with my mom and enjoying the benefits of writing. As I heal from the deaths of both my husband and son, I remember long forgotten memories. some stories are easy to write, others more painful, the grief lessens with time and God gave my the desires of my heart. I had been  both a wife and mother even if for a little while. God has walked me through some of the darkest and painful days of my life and He has taught me to look forward to tomorrow and good thing in store for me. thank you all for supporting my blog and the kind comments. Happy June.
