7 Quick Takes Friday

Hey!  It's Friday!!!  Linking up today with Conversion Diaries.  Saying extra prayers for Jennifer today as well!


It is so about flowers around here right now.  Texas weather is trying to warm up.  We had a very warm winter ( except for the  6 inches of snow on Christmas Day!) and everything begin blooming weeks ago.  We now have had a cold snap and the flowers and me are in schock! The above picture is a beautiful Clematis.  Here is another.  This grows on the porch post outside the back door.


This has been a very long week.  I am still getting used to getting up again at 5:30.  It takes me a while to wake up and I have to leave my house at 7 am 4 mornings a week to drive to my oldest daughter's house to care for 3 of the grandchildren.  Tuesday is my day off because that is knitting group day.  I get to sleep on that morning!


Tomorrow it will warm up and I am going to work in the garden.


I consider myself pretty technological savy considering my age.  But at my daughter's the TV, Netflix, VCR combo is confusing.  Any others out there find this complicated?  I feel like I should be programming a spaceship!


Lots of talk on the blogs about grocery shopping and saving money.  Prices are skyrocketing and even though it is just 2 of us now, only one of us is working.  Bring on those tips!


Ok more flowers!

This is a large dried hydrangea bouquet that sits on the dining room table.  Warms my heart!


The beauties I have each day!

I'm still learning the ropes here.  How did I do?


  1. I'll be looking for grocery shopping tips too! How has food gotten so expensive? What cuties you have!
