Derby time in Louisville!

 The roses at the airport are beautiful! I love Derby time in Louisville.


The musicians greeted Derby arrivals throughout the day! We had fun people watching - hoping to see a celebrity! Almost every lady who came in was wearing a hat or had a hat box in hand. Some even had two hat boxes.


... and the Lilly's for the Fillies were beautiful. Oaks day is today and it looks like the rain will hold off and the temps should be in the 70's. Today may be a good day to go to the track!

Me .... I'll be working in the yard and catching up on some chores.

Creating a headboard

I have an old mantle that use to be in another room in my house. I took it down years ago to give me more space in that room. My sister and I decided it would make a unique headboard for the platform bed she is going to be using in her new bedroom. She painted it this weekend and now we can't wait to put her new bed together and see if it works.

Of course we still have to finish all those other little changes to convert the room from my 'studio' into a living space for her, like painting the walls and having the carpet installed. Good thing we still have a little time before the big move!

Bloglovin vs Google Reader

Thanks to a tip from one of my readers I checked out Bloglovin.com to replace Google Reader ... which is going away. I was able to switch over without too much trouble. So it looks like this is what I will be using unless I find something else better. My main issue is that I was following well over 200 blogs but only 17 showed up when I changed over.

LOL ... maybe that is a good thing because I spent a lot of time blog hopping and now maybe I can save a little time by letting some go. Of course there are some that I don't want to miss so I'm manually adding them to the list. Change is good ... or so they say!

Derby is in the air!

It's been a busy week around here as I continue to get back into the swing of things. I have a package of goodies ready to go out to Jamie - please send me your contact information so I can get it in the mail to you!

I worked in the garden a lot the past week and now I'm resting up for the next round this weekend. I can't do as much at one time as I would like but I'm adjusting to my medical restrictions and learning to live life one day at a time and do what I can when I can!

It's Derby time around here once again and I'm looking forward to all the excitement around the city. I was in the airport today and they are getting ready for the 1,000's of visitors coming in for the races. I will be escorting several of the bands that will be playing in the terminal this week. Maybe I will see some celebrities and I'm sure I'll see lots of hats. What fun! The stage is almost ready.


I came home today to more work being done to prepare my sister's room. I use to have a 'pass through' between the kitchen and her room but today it was closed in. The plan is to put shelves in the space on the kitchen side and eventually glass doors will be added. It's all coming together!


I've been reading a book on digital photography and hopefully I will pick up some tips to take better pictures. It feels good to be getting back into the swing of things around here. One thing I've learned this past year it's that life is short and I still have a lot I want to accomplish!

Spring is finally here!

I hope to get out in the garden today and get some work done.

My Dogwood is starting to bloom. It's been a cold spring!

Now for the big job! My sister is moving in with me and my sewing room has to be converted into a bedroom. I started about two weeks ago and I'm getting a lot done. Still need to paint, do a little drywall work, new carpet ... the list is long but the room should be nice when finished.

This is what I started with - lots of fabric and other goodies. My oh My .... where did it all come from?

Thanks everyone for stopping by and leaving your comments. I'm going to figure out how to put a button on my page so people can follow me easier, thanks to a suggestion from one of my visitors.

Which reminds me I need to find a new way to track the blogs I read since google reader is closing down. I've  checked out a few but I haven't found one that I can figure out. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I also got my camera out today and charged the batteries so I will be posting pics soon. I need to show you how much organization I have accomplished in my sewing room ... soon to be my sister's room.
