Summertime In New England

I just thought I would try and catch up with all you fine people and stop in today. Next week I should be able to pick up my daughters wireless signal, and maybe put in a real blog. For now, just a note on my friends laptop. The weather has been wonderful, almost as hot as FL but with less humidity. I have see the two boys, and tomorrow is the birthday party for my youngest grandchild, Ayden. Wow! Three yrs old already! We are having a grand time, visiting people and going to some of my fave places. Got a few fun pics to post in the future. This weekend, the oldest daughter comes dowm from NH and then on Monday we will leave for NY. I sure hope all my readers are doing well, and enjoying these summer days! Till next time........

Somebody's Going On A Trip, Am I???

I am a little concerned, cause I haven't seen my traveling bag yet. Am I going North too?

So I will just put on my MEAN face till they, Mom and Dad, notice it. Then they will tell me what is going on!
OK! There it is! Thats my traveling bag! So now I know I am going for sure!
Yep! We are going to see, Sherri, maybe Jim, her hubs, Clint, Noelle, Greg, and little Ayden, and then over to western NY and
see Jennifer and those cute little kids, Julia and Joey, that live with her! Oh yeah, and her hubby Joe, too.
So, see all you fine people when we get back in three weeks!

PS, Billy had his Spa Day wednesday! He looks so adorable! But.........my camera is packed and I just don't have the time to post a pic of him anyway. So......by the time you all read this.....we will be on our way. It's North Or Bust Time!!!

What's Going On?

Why are you ironing all those clothes?
Why is the cooler out?
Why is your laptop case out of the closet?
Why are you making so many lists?
Why are you and Dad spelling so many words?
Why is the fridge and pantry so empty?
And, why on earth did you clean the car inside and out? You only do that when...........You are taking a trip!
Trip???? Am I going????
Oh why arn't they telling me anything?

So What If My Hair Looks Bad

Can I come up and snuggle with you Mom? I'll let you smooth my hair down...............................

Billy doesn't know it yet, but he is going to a groomer tomorrow. I want him to look nice and handsome for all the people we will see. I'm sure he will be mad at me though, when he comes home. I'll cure that........with some special treats!  (hehe)

Funday Monday-Goof Off?

While waiting out a rainstorm one day, I came across this. I have never seen nor heard of this stuff. I could think of a lot of "Goof Offs" I could remove with it though! You know, those kinds of tough "things" in our lives? What would you remove with it?

I just remembered...........today is my one year anniversary of Hoods Happenings! WOW! I made it! But.........guess what.........I probably will be taking a little break starting after this thursday, untill the middle of July. I will be visiting my kids and grandkids up north! So if you don't hear from me..............don't worry............I'm probably having a BLAST! Many thanks and love, to all who have visited this past year! Hope to see even more visitors during the next year of posts!

We still have a lot of Mourning Doves in and out of our yard. Here are a couple of our "Happy Campers"
They seem to be enjoying the 4 O'clocks!

Another Pink One

I have been taking so many pictures of flowers, I can't even remember if this is in our yard or at Lowes. I believe it is ours though. You know.........it can be tough to recall things at my age, hehe.

Lump In The Bed

I know when I made the bed,
there wasn't a lump in it! What is it?

I should have know what/who it was!

I Really Wanted This

But I did not buy it!
I think it would have looked cute in my
flower garden though!

Not sure I believe this.
Then again.......
I will taste anything
once. I can think of
 a lot of better
things to call
yummy though!

More Leaves Every Day

My Advocado tree is doing so well! Some of the
new top leaves are bigger than the first leaves! It
is about 16 inches tall right now!

It Really Does Smell Like......

It sure caught me off guard though.
Never heard of it. So of course, I rubbed the leaves a little bit. It sure did smell like cinnamon! I wonder how
it tastes?

Oh My!

Here are two people I will see! Jennifer and Joey

They both seem to be surprized at something...........could be something about me...........or are they just posing for the newest budding photographer?

I love car rides, especially when I get to see some very special people during them!

Once Upon A Time

Once upon a time, there was a little dog, who loved to sit near his Daddy at night, and watch TV. But........................He always looked over often, to make sure his Mommy was still in her chair!
