Stevie Nicks - Landslide

Tuesday, June 14, 2011

so yes back to work tomorrow.. Honestly why is it that when U R off time flies so fast?

Had a nice time spending it with my two boys... we hit a couple of book stores today Borders and Barnes of course we could not leave without everyone getting something.

I am a sucker for Journals. Do I need another NO, but how could I resist this one journal I got today had THE KISS from Gustav Klimt on the front and back cover.... NEED to get that.

Did not get a chance to go through all the pics I took this past weekend so U get stuck with this one of some of my peonies and the white orchid I got for my birthday from my friend Luci....

So gotta run now, I forgot I left my camera in the car and honestly don't want nothing to happen to my baby...

oh and talking about baby I was just told this weekend I am going to be an aunt of course my brother is flaunting in my face that it's a girl.... will this be the first girl to come into our lives other then my mother's doggie.... I always wanted a girl... if it's a girl I swear she is going to be so spoiled......

ciao for now

so this weekend went by so fast, Kari's (niece) grad party was very fun and the food was great. Will share a few pics later. You will be able to see all my family.

I am off today, took 2 days off to spend some time with my boys, slept in and now running to get ready so we can go to the zoo...

I love going to the farmers market not only for all the great veggies, breads and fruit that people bring to sell, but for all the ladies that bring jewelery that they make to sell.

I couldn't here are two pairs that I got. Of course the 1st ones to represent nature and the second the eiffel tower which I hope to one day see personally.

okay well gotta run so I will see ya all soon. Hope you had a great weekend as well.

one of the last peonies from my garden.... this was taken last week before the crazy storm we had two days ago which destroyed most of the flowers..

so I hope you are up to something fun this weekend.

not sure what the weather is tomorrow but hope it's sunny and bright.

I just finished watching a movie called Blue Valentine, pretty intense movie... loved every minute of it and will probably watch it again tomorrow. Did it make me cry?

Of course it did.... U should check it out.. hope whoever you are you have a nice night. I am so worn out now I think it's time for bed...

What will tomorrow bring for me possibly the farmers market and maybe some plant shopping....

see ya soon.... have fun.....

Caifanes - Quisiera Ser Alcohol Unplugged

si mis plegarias no fueran a la virgen sino a ti.... que pensarias, que dirias, si de la noche soy un pedazo....

es en lo que flota, entre tus suenos, como una perla, te saco de lo obscuro
te llamo por tu nombre
y digo que no puede ser

quisiera ser alchol para evaporarme en tu interior
quisiera ser alchol para evaporarme de una ves
y sentir lo que es passion
y sentir que soy querida una ves

always have loved this song, always have loved this band.... brings back so many memories
I wish I had the cd so I can listen to it over and over again and get lost in it's melody

when I lived in MO, I had a peony plant that took at least 7 years to bloom. The soil in MO was not really soil it was clay so if you wanted to plant somehting you had to make the hole and then add dirt to that hole and then you added your plant just like if you were planting in a clay pot.

here now in IL I have not had to wait to see my plants get bigger and to see them bloom.
as you can see the bloom on this peony plant is breathtaking.
