Accent or Drawl…


Hope your day went well.  🙂

My day went pretty good.   When I came home for lunch today, I took a few pictures.

Do you remember, last year when my ornamental pear tree was damaged in a storm?  It lost a big limb which left one side stripped bare.  Yesterday another side of the tree split.  I guess it did so because of the heat and dryness.

Here it is split…

Here it is cut and diced.
Then I took shots of some of my pretty flowers.  Here is the moss rose… this picture does not do them justice, as the colors are so vibrant to the naked eye.

The marigolds are loaded down…

and I got this pretty butterfly too.

As you know there have been quite a few changes at work in the past year.  The changes are still happening but I believe for the good.   I found out yesterday that we will be scheduled off all of next week.  I hadn’t planned on that, but I plan on enjoying the time off just the same. 🙂
I also found today, I have a new supervisor starting the week we return to work.  I look forward to that case as I understand he has a lot of experience in environment, health and safety.  I’m taking a 30 hour OSHA course online, but also hope to learn from a more experienced person.  
Every journey has an end… but when it does, a new one begins.

 My daughter informed me, today, there is a National Speak like Sean Connery Day.  Now being a Sean Connery fan, I had to look that up and sure enough, there happens to be several.

Go figure.

The one that makes the most sense to me is the one on his birthday, August 25.  Though I won’t participate due to the fact I cannot get the accent… yes I have tried … (there’s the silliness for you).  If God wanted me to talk like that He would planted me in beautiful Scotland instead of the southern part of the United States with its southern charm and drawl.  🙂

I have been a fan of Sean Connery since my childhood.

I guess that’s all I have this evening.

Have a terrific Thursday!

God bless and keep you,

I'm a happily married mom of two, living in Arkansas and selling AVON. Both of my children are grown and in college. I often wonder where the time went. I never thought I'd have blog but when blogs came along, I jumped on board. That just goes to show one doesn't know what the future holds. I was born in 1967 but my life truly began in 1996. That is the year I realized I need God in my life. That is the year I asked Jesus Christ into my life. So, you will see, as you follow my blog, there will be mention of God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit from time to time. I can't live without sharing that part of my life. I like to go to flea markets and visit antique shops and I usually find something to take home with me. I'm fairly new at crocheting. I tried to learn to crochet in my twenties but I didn't have left handed instructions. I could do it right handed but it was hard for me to keep my stitches consistent. Then a few years ago a left handed friend of mine gave me a book with left handed crocheting instructions and I learned to crochet. My first quilt was in done in 2001. Money was tight and I wanted to give my husband something nice. So I decided to make him a "blanket". Little did I know I would be hooked and still be making quilts years later. I'm starting my hand at scrapbooking and watercoloring. We will see how that goes. :) I update my AVON page each week with a special deal, so be sure to check it out. Well, that's a little about me. Hope you enjoy my blog and follow me on this journey.

  1. LOL Oh, I'm a big Sean Connery fan, too….my kids are good at impressions of him…lines from the Elliott Ness movie, the famous line from Red October, “get off my sub” and more. Heehee! Ya know, I think he looked better as he matured, then in the Bond movies! Just sayin'!
    Love your marigolds – they are one of my favs!
