Look what I did!!

Well I finally bought flowers for my deck boxes, but won't be able to plant them just yet. Would have to cover them every night for a while, and that's just too much work.

We usually plant flowers and the garden on the May long weekend, however because of the rain we had during the week and the really cool temps every day - that just isn't going to happen. Got my asparagus roots in the mail the other day too, really need to get into the garden!!

Was in the craft room looking around trying to figure out something to do (other than clean it up) and decided to make a small bag for my friends 6 year old for her birthday. Something to put the hop scotch game in, or whatever little girls put in bags. She happens to like blue and pink so I thought I could use some jean squares I had and some left over pink flannel from a previous bag I had made. This is my first attempt at making yoyo's, and probably my last. LOL

What do you think?
Son one just got home for the weekend. He's working in the city, where he is going to college, for the summer for a company that designs and builds Fire Trucks!! He found out during the week that he will be working on the new fire truck for our home town. How cool is that!!

Here is a strange quiz for you to try. If you figure out how it works, let me know please!! Have a great long weekend!!

This is pretty neat.
It takes less than a minute .
Work this out as you read .
Be sure you don't read the bottom until you've worked it out!

1. First of all, pick the number of times a week that you would like to have chocolate (more than once but less than 10)

2. Multiply this number by 2 (just to be bold)

3. Add 5

4. Multiply it by 50 -- I'll wait while you get the calculator

5. If you have already had your birthday this year add 1759 ..
If you haven't, add 1758.

6. Now subtract the four digit year that you were born.

You should have a three digit number
The first digit of this was your original number
(i.e., how many times you want to have chocolate each week).
The next two numbers are
YOUR AGE! (Oh YES, it is!!!!!)


  1. How fun!

    Being in a house with all boys I know the firetruck job is like a dream to them!

    Love your flowers!

    Have a great weekend.


  2. Beautiful flowers! I would love to have them, but I kill flowers :(

    Hope you have a great weekend!

  3. The bag is beautiful and the little girl will just love it..Someone at work sent me that Age by really does work..

  4. First of all, that is the CRAZIEST quiz! It was absolutely true! Math is so scary sometimes!

    The bag is adorable.

    With the firetruck gig, it seems your son's life has come full circle!

    I am still waiting for my annuals to arrive (still not time to ship, I guess). My gardener friend has said it's okay to plant some veg, so I have only done that so far. My thumbs are both brown...never was very good at growing stuff.

  5. I remember that quiz from grade school, it always amazed me..
    The flowers are pretty, I wouldn't want to keep them covered either.

  6. Great blog.Pretty flowers and love the bag.Saying nothing about my choclate addiction/age.

  7. Beautiful flowers,
    Love the bag.
    That quiz is amazing!

    Have a great weekend!
