Monday Monday

Hello all you Monday lovers out there. I got up this morning raring to go!
We decided to drive over to IKEA. I had never been there here in AZ. Well, there wasn't much I wanted or needed. Came home and read some blogs, took a short nap, and bunch of little stuff....
Anyways, our tree, for those who asked is a Palo Verde tree. It is still full of blooms even though many have blown off.
This is a close-up of the flowers.

Last week I went to HL. They had Easter 90% off. They had so many precious bunnies, but I had just packed everything away, and I didn't want to repack...so I left them for all of you! But I could not resist this louvre that says Welcome. $1.99! I couldn't pass that up!
I don't know about all of you, but I could use a respite on the breaking appliances. First the toilet...then the dishwasher, which I think is fixed, and now today, not that it is broke, but the electric trimmer was deader than a doorknob! It is charging up, hopefully!
Well, that is it for a Monday at my big exciting life!! I bet you wish you had such excitement!! Have a good one.

Hi Ceekay...

Oooh...I love your Palo Verde tree...the yellow blossoms are beautiful! I think this is the first time I've seen one!

Girl, you did good buying that darling lovre sign!!! It was a steal-of-a-deal at $1.99!!! I just groaned when I read that HL's bunnies were 90% off...the closest HL to me is 2 hrs. away...shoot!

Hope you're having a marvelous Monday, my friend!

I am sorry your appliances are giving you a bad time. Ours started in November and during our sons wedding and Christmas. I didn't think we'd get a break. Our home is almost ten years old and even the water heater went out.
Our dish washer and the P-T to our washer went out and we 2 repairmen on the same day along with the agent from State Farm from all the water damage the day before a bridal shower... Our dish washer was out for 4 weeks during that time waiting for a new part. Arrg I understand!

Your flowers on your tree are gorgeous and thanks for leaving some bunnies for us:) cute sign!

Doesn't it seem like things all break at once? For me it was the ironing board, toilet paper holder and small vacuum on Sunday. Must have been the heat!! LOL

Love the tree!! So pretty!!

Hi! First of all, I laughed at your greeting to "Monday Lovers". That's definitely not me - as evidenced by it's Wednesday and I'm visiting you. :) I LOVE that tree! It's beautiful. And darn...I really wish we had a Hobby Lobby! Great deal! :)

What a great welcome sign and what a great price! Your tree is beautiful! It really does seem like once something breaks down, everything else starts giving us trouble. I hope you're through with the mechanical troubles. laurie

Morning, Dear Ceekay! Oh, I'm so glad you popped in this morning! I'm not sure where I got the little lidded butter plate - I only have one. Probably at a junk shop. I just thought it was so cute and wondered if it may have been a part of a little girl's dish set! Take care of yourself, Ceekay. I think and say a prayer for you often.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)
