Country Girl, City Bling

My life in the country with bling

Jujube

And you ask, what the heck is a Jujube??  Well, it looks like a small apple and has the texture similar to an apple and almost tastes like one.  But according to Wikipedia, it’s scientific name is Ziziphus jujuba, red date, Chinese date, Korean date, Indian date.  We have three Jujube trees and one has some really tasty fruit!

Breakfast!

Typically, after I exercise, I make myself a fruit salad breakfast.  I LOVE fruit and put whatever I have in it.  Then I top it off with some vanilla light yogurt.  This is what I had in it today:  Apple, peach, plum, grapes, cherries, strawberries, dried cranberries and apricots and walnuts.  YUMMO!

Good Morning World!

Went outside this morning to have my coffee and Remi was sleeping and didn’t even notice me coming out.  I sneeked back in the house to get my camera and she STILL didn’t wake up.  As she gets older, her hearing is not as good as it once was.  Kinda like mine!  I enjoy coffee in my favorite mug that I bought years ago.  I DO live up to the saying on the cup, believe me!

Yep, I do!!

Yep, I do!!

It Wasn’t Me!

I was exercising this morning and happened to look out the window to see this!  I have had this red glaze ball sitting on a pedestal in the bird bath for many years and not sure who did this.  Could have been Buddy jumping up on it and tipping it over or Remi going through the bushes knocking it down.  Either way, it is done.  Oh well, no harm done really!

Uh, it wasn't me!!

Uh, it wasn't me!

It was Remi!

It was Buddy!

It was Buddy!

I’m a Dirty Girl!

Literally!  We got some rain last week, not as much as some areas but still made the grass grow.  I swear, it was at least 6″ tall!  And because of the rain, more areas that I would mow in the spring are green so I got filthy (again) mowing.  The shower water was black!  I love to see how good the yard looks after mowing.  There will be a reward for me later to enjoy on the back porch – a COLD beer!!

Handcrafted with Love!

We have a very good friend whose daughter graduated from high school this year and in the announcement said that she would be attending a local cosmotology school in the Fall.  I knew exactly what I wanted to do for her as far as a graduation gift.  I pretty much knew that I would have to go online to get the items I needed, and sure enough I did.  After I got all my pieces together and a failed attempt to put them on what I was making (my fault as I am VERY particular), I finally finished the product today – a charm bracelet with cosmotology charms!!  I also wanted to add some personal touches so I put her initial and birthstone along with a couple of encouragement pieces.  I plan on arranging to have lunch with her and her mom to give her the gift, hope she likes it!

Blue………..

I LOVE Morning Glories and every year, I plant some and then have some wild ones come up.  These blue ones are probably my favorites, they are called Heavenly Blue.  I noticed a couple of them have a two tone to them.

Blue Moon…..

You left me standing alone – to drink!  I love a Blue Moon beer with orange in it, but I can only have one as it isn’t a light beer.  They are SO good with the orange.  I worked hard today cleaning house and doing laundry – reward time!!

Fresh Out of the Garden

Greg cooked steaks on the grill and our side dish was home grown onion, potatoes and butternut squash.  This was SO good!!

Bling it On!

We went country dancing last night for the first time in about two months!  I was so ready and we had a great time.  I always like to dress nice when we go out as well as be comfortable.  And I have to add my bling!  Turned out the earrings that I just bought were a pain in the patootie – they kept getting hung up in my shirt!
