I think one of those islands with palm trees swaying in a cool ocean breeze reading a good book on a comfortable beach chair with a fantasticaly good looking cabana boy serving me cool drinks in the shade is my idea of a vacation!
Happy Summer!

I watched the Phoenix Mars Lander land. How amazing! There are people out there that smart. I can't imagine making something that would land on Mars and take pictures - WOW

I Love Rain and Flowers!

Today the pool looks perfect. I can't wait until the grandkids are out of school and playing in the pool. After cleaning the pool I "work" on my flower beds. Last year I planted one small camelia bush. This morning there were three blooming flowers and several buds. As you have already read on my page - I Love Rain and...... I Love Flowers!

as the cat slept

A week ago it rained slightly a little bit in the morning and then it was gone. It was beautiful .... Yesterday it rained - real rain, like coming down hard rain. I loved it! AND it looks like rain again today. This rain is happening in the same week we broke records on our high temperature. Amazing!
Yesterday during the rain, my two cats slept - the dog laid on the couch and watched movies with my husband and I. Life is good.

I love rain

I love rain! This is just my opinion but I think when it finally rains in Arizona everything should be closed for a state holiday. There is a slight cool breeze with rain sprinkles this morning. I got up early and got all my house chores done so I could sit out on the back patio and watch this beautiful day.
My pool is blue again. I get many visitors to my pool (some invited and some not). All the neighborhood cats come to my pool and drink - so do my cats and dog. I've seen birds fly unto the clorine dispenser that floats in the pool and take a drink from the pool. I've watched small birds sit at the end of the slide and drink from the pool too. I've also found an occasional geicko at the bottom of the pool.
My dog runs around the pool chasing her reflection - so cute! One of these days when I figure out how to upload on YouTube I'm going to take movies of all the "happenings" at my pool.

Unchain my heart - PLEASE set me free

Unchain my heart, baby let me be
Cause you don't care, help me, set me free
Unchain my heart, baby let me go
Unchain my heart, cause you don't love me no more
Every time I call you on the phone
Some fellow tells me that you're not at home
Unchain my heart, set me free
Unchain my heart, baby let me be
Unchain my heart, cause you don't care about me
You got me sewed up like a pillow case
But you let my love go to waste
Unchain my heart, set me free
I'm under your spell, like a man in a trance, oh yeah
Oh but you know damn well, that I don't stand a chance
Unchain my heart, let me go my way
Unchain my heart, you were mean that day
Why lead me through a life of misery
When you don't care a bag of beans for me
Unchain my heart, oh please, let me be
