Sunflowers in my Future

Spring is truly here as our local drive-in theater is now in operation, for the season.  However, the wood stove is cranking and beef stew is on the menu for today, because it is cold!  

Warm again tomorrow, such is spring in Kentucky.  

Sharing an oldie from the archives this morning.  Hoping for sunflowers this summer.  Such a joyous flower.  

Linking up with The Barn Collective today.

Friday Randoms

It's that time of year again.  Iris flowers are everywhere.  

I just don't know about the new Unicorn Frappuccino from Starbucks.  I enjoy their coffee every now and again, but seriously coffee should not come in rainbow colors.  

Parenthood, right here, in real words.  Enjoy

Who knew that a town in my great state will be the best place to view the solar eclipse this year?  

Sending you off into the weekend with some Jefferson Starship.  

Linking up with Tanya today.  Have a great one!

Thankful Thursday

Can I just say that today I am thankful it is Thursday?  At the end of the school year things get so busy that it is often overwhelming, to say the least.  With seventeen school days left we have two field trips, one science day, one theater day, field day, and some instruction that I have to squeeze in there, somewhere.  

Wish me luck!  

What are you thankful for today?  Let me know!

Prom Success

Our weekend did not have an auspicious beginning.  The softball playing-girl of the house had some serious trouble with her allergy/asthma problems after playing ball Thursday night.  This necessitated a visit to our friendly family physician on Friday.  An unexpected day off, but truly needed.  After a steroid shot and a 9 day steroid prescription she was ready to go and breathing freely.  

After a day of rest/medication she was ready to go for Prom 2017, on Saturday.  She and I went to the softball field for a few photos.  After she asked me what she was supposed to do with the chair, I didn't think things were going to go very well, but we persisted.  

We, (I), persisted.....

and persisted.....

I think they turned out pretty well.  

She went with a group of friends and had a great time.  

A local group hosts a prom after party at the bowling alley, complete with plenty of food, bowling, and other games.  

You have to pass a breathalyzer test before you enter the festivities.

You know you live in a small town when the local florist calls to double check your order of prom flowers, because he can't read his, "memaw's" handwriting on the order form. 
 I love it.  

Yes, prom is happening this weekend and the girl of the house is attending with a group of friends.  Here are a few prom fails from Jimmy Fallon.  

If all football coaches could dance like this, it might be more fun to watch.  

I guess healthy desserts are needed, but I am not putting kale in my chocolate chip cookies.  

I heard some Johnny Cash at the ballpark this week, though it wasn't this gem.  

Linking up with Tanya!  
Have a great one!!

Thankful Thursday

Thankful this Thursday for people who listen.  You know, those friends and coworkers who lend an ear when things aren't going your way or they are there to share a laugh.  I have people like this who are there for me everyday.  I hope you do too.  

What are you thankful for today?  Let me know and link up!
