Well...Even In Isolation, Life Goes On

Hello, Dear Ones! I pray you are all safe, sound and keeping your 'social distancing' at this trying time for our country. Mr. Precious and I are staying in and puttering in the yard. Here in The Woodlands we are not on lockdown at the time being but we are not putting ourselves in any danger.

I just have to have some happy in my life and can't focus on this virus all day long. Hey, that will get you down and depressed. I know our God is in control and He will get us through this.

Okie dokie...on with the show!
Here is our humble little home in south Texas. Have I told you how glad I am to be back in Texas? Well, we did downsize - quite a bit. I'm over that now and am really enjoying our little one story home. Since I took these snaps I've planted some little flowers in the bed on the right now. Little red and white periwinkles.
 I wanted to show you my little front porch. I don't think this is officially called a porch. Maybe a portico? It's Springtime and I wanted some Spring on my 'porch'.
 Before this virus scare I had found this lovely peony flower garland at Hobby Lobby and didn't know at the time what I would do with it, but loved it. Then I bought a new grapevine wreath to make a new wreath. I had had my seasonal wreaths for so long so when we moved from New York I gave them to Goodwill! Anyway...I took this lovely garland and wired it to my wreath! It was a match made in heaven I'm telling you! The complete length of the garland fit perfectly around the wreath. Not too short and I didn't have to cut off anything! Perfection! I think I probably should hot glue down a few of the blooms as they're kinda floppy.



See how pretty these blooms are!! I was so thrilled! But then...
 We bought this little bush at At Home for Christmas and I added lights that come on each evening with a timer. We liked the look so much that we just kept the little bush out here. Well, she was sad and wanted some blooms too. I went to Walmart, again before the virus scare, and bought two or three little flower bunches and chopped off the blooms and poked them into the bush! Perfect!
 
See??
 So if I could invite you over for dinner when you walk up the front sidewalk - this is what you would see. Light and bright and I hope welcoming!
If you will look very closely you'll see a little fuzzy face down in the right hand corner of the door  who is waiting to greet you - my Willow.

Well, Dear Ones I hope I've brought you a little bit of joy this day. I pray for us all each day that our mighty God will keep you safe and sound.

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia :)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song -

Rockin' Pneumonia and the Boogie Woogie Flu

 I wanna jump, but I'm afraid I'll fall
I wanna holler, but the joint's too small
Young man rhythm's got a hold of me, too
I got the rockin' pneumonia and the boogie woogie flu

Want some lovin' babe and that ain't all
I wanna kiss her, but she's way too tall
Young man rhythm's got a hold of me, too
I got the rockin' pneumonia and the boogie woogie flu

Wanna squeeze her, but I'm way too low
I would be runnin' but my feets too slow
Young man rhythm's got a hold of me, too
I got the rockin' pneumonia and the boogie woogie flu

I wanna squeeze her, but I'm way too low
I would be runnin' but my feets too slow
Young man rhythm got a hold of me, too
I got the rockin' pneumonia and the boogie woogie flu

Baby comin', now, I'm hurryin' home
I know she's leavin', 'cause I'm takin' too long
Young man rhythm's got a hold of me, too
I got the rockin' pneumonia and the boogie woogie flu
