We were out sightseeing the other day
and I couldn't help myself.
I had to take pictures of these.
One was Red
The other was Blue
and they reminded me of

Just for Grins
As Buzz and I have traveled to East Texas over the past several months, we've seen some things that made us smile ... or at least, stopped us in our tracks.
Let me show you what I mean.
First of all, if you've never been to East Texas, let me tell you, it's covered with trees and the flowers are always beautiful. In fact, East Texas is well known for it's Dogwood trees and Azalea bushes...
both breathtaking when in full bloom.
But then there is this!
We spotted him outside one of our favorite "Mom & Pop" cafe's.
Some how this just doesn't seem right - no matter how you look at it.
(and I'm not talking about the fact that he's holding Poinsettia on the first day of Spring)
Then there was this!
At least the license plate says Arkansas...
I'm sure no one in Texas would EVER do this.
(shouldn't this be illegal?!?!)
To say the least,
both of these were a little unsettling,
seeing this made up for it.
I took this picture of Daffodil's along the roadside last Spring,
but it looked just the same yesterday when we drove by.
in our minds

If you're a follower that watches for updates about our home,
you'll be pleased to see that we're working on our front porch.
This is a Sneak Peek
It's undergoing quite a transformation and I'll be posting before / after pictures soon.
How do you like our checkerboard deck?
(something I almost talked myself out of yesterday)
Every single muscle in my body is screaming right now,
but I'm so glad I decided to paint it.
(besides, if I hadn't I would have always wished I had)
Don't you just LOVE projects like this one ...
Ones that you can actually SEE what you've accomplished
at the end of the day.
