it can't make up it's mind!

it rains, then the sun comes out, then it rains, then the sun comes out...
but when the sun is out the birds are singing...
there is a well hidden nest up there just above the x...
the skies have been different all day long...
thought we were going to be able to sit outside this morning...
but at 47, I decided to wait...
we have got a balmy 58 now...
but that chilly wind is back again...
more bedding plants...
Craig loves these and they do nothing for me...
but this is mine...
decided to do the pink petunias anyway...
and I decided to give this a go again...
haven't used dusty miller in years!
but it will give the pots a different hue and texture...
and I got more of the rose moss in the purple pink color...
I think a hanging basket with them will be awesome!

mower guy called and will be here this afternoon to mow what he can...
the death toll in the south is over 250 now and still climbing...
I walked around outside and it is just so hard to imagine digging for people on a day like this...
trying to find your family, friends or neighbors...
sorting through broken pieces for all the little things that cannot be replaced...
starting over...

I just spent the morning with both of my boys...
just talking, walking and eating lunch together...
like when they were little...
getting an update on the death toll every now and then...
but other than that...
we were just together...
and I know we were all thinking the same thing...
we were grateful we were spared...
that it wasn't us...
and that the best place to be today...
was together...
who ever you have around you today...
hug 'em...
you may not get another chance...

Hi Tete ~ Back online now, had been off since right after my tutu post.... After 3.5 Hours of talking to or trying to listen to {outsourced techincal for EL} I am back online & it is NOT Dial up!
I saw your photo & thought, a Lake, I didn't realize you were on a lake, then I caught up on your other Posts.
I was just on FB & found that a friends Hubby was safe in Alabama, That Tornada destroyed soe of the Buildings where he was, but His area was Safe. My Niece & her 6 kids were taking cover in Georgia.... Oh what Horrible Storms, I am Praying along with You & So many others.
I have not gotten out to the PO yet. too hard to carry the package that is Heavy(Books) to the PO in the Rain. So will try for tomorrow, at least I know, You know where I am & you will eventually get everything & Then Some ~ So Happy to be back online, Take care Dearest Friend!

I don't know if I ever told you how pretty your header is, I just love it.
The south is really getting the severe weather this spring. I wait to see what will happen next. It's been so damaging and my prayers go out to so many families.
Thank you for stopping by. Your weather will warm up and the wind will die down. Hang on there girlfriend, Char
