When You Wish Upon a Star

Hello, Dear Ones! The weather has been simply glorious here! Cool with a slight breeze. Most days we don't even turn on the air conditioning! Can you believe it? Do I miss those hot humid days on the Texas Gulf Coast? Shoot, no! :)
 My sweet daughter gave us those light green chairs and we poked them in the front yard and enjoy sitting here so much. Our front yard is bigger than it looks here in this snap and the grandchildren have a ball running around and playing while we watch and supervise!
Look how our hostas have grown.
 Here's how this same area looked just about a month ago! Notice that yucky stump on the left hand corner - gone! :)
 We have our Cracker Barrel rocking chairs on the front porch and we sit out here so much. Mr. Precious sits out here and drinks his coffee and reads the paper. Again, how blessed we feel to be here.
I forgot to tell you, our yard usually looks like a Disney movie! Really! There are usually three or four squirrels scampering about, little chipmunks and tiny little chipmunk babies, lots of Robins and we can hear a woodpecker but haven't seen him yet! Here I go...when you wish upon a star...

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia :)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

When You Wish Upon A Star

When you wish upon a star
Makes no difference who you are
Anything your heart desires
Will come to you.

If your heart is in your dream
No request is too extreme
When you wish upon a star
As dreamers do.

Fate is kind
She brings to those who love
The sweet fulfillment of
Their secret longing

Like a bolt out of the blue
Suddenly, it comes to you
When you wish upon a star
Your dreams come true

When a star is born
They possess a gift or two.
One of them is this
They have the power to make a wish come true.

When you wish upon a star
Makes no difference who you are
Anything your heart desires
Will come to you,

If your heart is in your dream
No request is too extreme
When you wish upon a star
As dreamers do.

Fate is kind
She brings to those who love
The sweet fulfillment of
Their secret longing.

Like a bolt out of the blue
Suddenly, it comes to you
When you wish upon a star
Your dreams come true.
~ sung by Jiminy Cricket and me :)

  6. Shoot Shelia...you've been busy too...while I've been busy here! I've looked at all of your previous posts that I've missed and see everything from Turkeys, House Tours, Marion and your large growing Hostas! I loved every single post. I love reading what you write...you sure have a way with words, my friend. Well, I'm off to take care of several other things today, like pup baths, grooming, cleaning the house, changing a few things around inside the house...all so I can go to Goodwill, Grocery Shopping and dropping off a few odds and ends to two friends of mine tomorrow, when it's going to be cooler and alot less humid. We've had upper 80's and humidity so much already this summer. We've really only had a couple of my kind of days - low 70's, partly sunny and breezy...with low humidity. My patio swing {that I put together myself} is waiting for the Pups and me. Hugs ♥

  9. Hello Shelia!
    Such a serene spot to enjoy with the added benefit of living near the family now! I know the happiness it brings since we did the same thing almost 3 years ago. The grandies are so precious and we would hate to miss out on this special time of our lives. Each day is such a blessing and dreams really do come true!
    Enjoy your summer on that perfect porch!

    Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  11. Turn about is fair play. I remember going on a sunny picnic while you were up to your eyebrows in snow. Now I'm stuck in the house with the AC running and swimming through humidity while you enjoy your porch!

  12. Your yard is so peaceful and beautiful--and lots of fun, too, with the wildlife. I love your light green chairs!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Your front looks so pretty Shelia...I love the green chairs your daughter gifted you! Hot and humid in this part of NY...I'll blow some of the stickiness your way LOL!

  14. I am so glad you are enjoying your "transplantation." Is that a word!? The yard looks heavenly, and I can't believe how those hosts took off. I'll bet lilacs do well there, too.

  15. Hola, Sheila y Sr. Preciosus, tienen una vista hermosa y se ve un lugar tranquilo. Mi sueño es poder tener unos vecinos como ustedes y un hermoso jardín en casa para que mis nietos algún día si Dios lo permite puedan corretear en el. Las sillas son hermosas, el color verde es mi preferido y ustedes son una pareja ejemplar. Muchos besos y abrazos.

    2. Hola, Sheila, por acá estamos en invierno, bueno nos está afectando mucho el fenómeno del niño. Pero aún en ciertos días podemos ver el cielo azul. Abrazos y bendiciones

  21. What a beautiful, peaceful post Shelia, I too would not be able to resist sitting in the rockers or under the tree. I feel the best when I connect with nature.

  22. Just beautiful, Sheila! There is no doubt you are loving this place....and I would give just about anything to have some of your great weather! This going into the third week of HOT, HOT temps...mid to upper 90's and more. Love that front porch....and I am just as happy as a clam to say getting a front porch is one of our home improvements this summer...yippee!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Beautiful and one of the best decisions you've made is to move there and close to the Grands!!
    hugs,

  24. I take it, it has been all that hard for you to adapt to life in the northeast, now has it? I know that it isn't as hot or humid as it is in Texas or the deep south or east/central Kansas, where I am! I can't wait to get to New England later in the summer, if I don't wilt by then.
    Your yard is gorgeous...do you have many mosquitoes? I love watching the squirrels and rabbits that cavort between our house and the neighbors.
    Have a wonderful week, Sheila.

  25. It looks divine, Shelia.What a sweet and lovely haven to call home!

  26. Your yard look lovely, Shelia! I'd love to sit out there too :) I wish we were having your weather. It's been miserably hot here, as we're having a heatwave. It's 95-100 and it's usually in the 80s at this time of year.

    I loved the tour of homes. I'm always so curious to see what those old beauties look like inside.

    I hope you have a great week, my friend.

    xoxo,

  27. So glad that you are enjoying your summer in NY. It's a lot better than that HOT weather in the South.
    Your yard looks so pretty and nice shade trees. Love the rockers on the front porch and the pretty green chairs that your daughter gave you. Enjoy.
    Hugs

  30. Yay I'm glad to see you are so happy! The hostas really got big! It sounds like you guys are embracing living there very nicely! Those Cracker Barrel rocking chairs are comfy aren't they! We have one near us and stare at them on our way in. I'd love a covered porch to set a pair under. Isn't it fun to watch the wildlife! Hugs, Liz
