I've got the gardening fever!!!

                                     I love my little mouse sniffing at the mailbox full of flowers! 
                                                     These pink flowers just flutter in the breeze!

                       Mini gardens are my thing right now!  Check out my little kitty by the church!
                    Can you see the cute little monkey that mysteriously appeared on the beach chair?
                 I collect rocks everywhere we go.  There are from our trip to Maine last summer!
These are more of my rock collection that people have kindly gathered for me on their travels.  These are from places far away such as Qatar, England, Ireland, Mexico, Afghanistan and more!!!

Here we go again!!!

It looks like it's been a LONG time since I've posted....and it has been!!!  Life has been crazy as always and right now I'm trying to get caught up from a round up with some health issues myself!  That sure can knock a person down and make them not feel like doing a darn thing! 

Some things we've been doing:
*****Watching the Baltimore Orioles eat our grape jelly
*****Watching our daughter move home from college for the summer
*****Watching our son get his motorcycle license
*****Trying to plan a summer vacation!!!

And if that isn't enough, we added a hedgehog to our household!!!  His name is Odin and he's a cutie!  I'll try to post a couple pictures later, but for now I've got to run!!!

If you have any ideas on how to display a lobster trap we got on vacation last year....hit me with your ideas!!!

This is our crazy, strong willed cat Simon! You never know where you will find him, or what he will be up to next. Some days it takes a LOT of patience to keep up with him!

This is our new set of wheels! Our 2005 Durango was totalled when a neighbor on his tractor turned into me as he was attempting to turn into his driveway! But we were both o.k. and that was the most important thing!

Check out the table favors we had at Christmas this year! I thought they were really cute! Thankfully I had a couple teens help me out as I made 25 of them!

The days at the Beck house have been full of fun, laughter and family! Erica was home from college for several weeks and that made for extra craziness! We loved having her home, but the return was hard on her and on me. So I decided to mail her a little "sweetness"! The bottle is filled with candy. One is on the way to Hesston to her boyfriend too! I love mailing the oddest things I can find....adds to the fun!

These are just a few of the crazy things that have been going on at our house! Sorry I haven't kept up with the posts lately, but maybe after you see what's been keeping me busy, you'll forgive me!
