Another Day in the Yard

The past few days here in Houston have been terribly cold, windy, and rainy. I'm a little confused because, I'm sure by this time of year we are dying from heat waves. I don't know if I'm complaining but...I have some yard work to do!!! Well Saturday was beautiful. Not to hot, sun bees, which is always a good thing lol. I actually got Danny up and had him come out and help me, before his allergies started getting the better of him. Take a look!
Yea, I had him cutting down tree limbs with no safety goggles (evil laugh). Luckily we both came out with our eyes unharmed lol. Today was pretty much demolition day in the back yard. A lot of cutting limbs and trimming bushes. I'm afraid of the clean up that I now have to do.

The junk around the tree was probably the hardest part of the day. I don't know if you guys can see the purple plant that over ran the planter but that bad boy has some roots on it! I still feel my arms getting ready to fall off any second now lol. You can see where I pretty much hacked down any bush that was back there. My plan is to put some pretty shade plants around the tree and maybe put my raised planter on the side of the fence shown in the picture next to the tree.
Do you guys have any flower suggestions to go by the tree?

Speaker Kitty Photoshoot

Hipster Cat Sweetie

Today was pretty unproductive. Danny worked crazy hours and I was just so darn tired. We have had some friends stay with us till their apartment is ready to be moved into, and I've been enjoying the girl time with my friend Krystal. We painted our nails and talked about nothing and everything. Girl time is nice, yes?

While I was walking around the house pointlessly (I do that often) I noticed Sweetie, my ball of grey fluff, sitting on top of a speaker Danny has for his music and he instantly grabs the camera and goes to work, here is some of her best shots.

I really like this one, even if it is blurry.

"Oh yes darrling, this is my good side"

"You know you love me"

"Don't look at me"
"No I'm too fabulous"

This beautiful girl is Lynx, she isn't as photogenic as Sweetie Bear. She is still just as beautiful.

Day One of Yard Day

Hello everyone out there in blog land ^_^. Here in Houston, Texas, everything is slowly heating up and getting ready for one hell of a summer. Am I ready? Erm....yes and no. This will be my first summer in my own place with my own back yard and I'm excited to fix it up, however, I don't know how much time I'll actually be spending out there...cuz ya know...that heat is something else lol. One blog that I have been really loving is Oh Dear Drea, and her blogs on her yard work is truly inspiring. So inspiring, I decided to start on my yard...well sort of..just see for yourself.
So this is my patio full of leaves and tires and other junk I don't need. I just want to clean this space up.

My random cat and covered bar b que pit on the left hand side on my big tree

Right side of tree and random ugly patio seat.
It's a nice size backyard and I'm missing some pictures of it because I have no clue how to work my camera *tears* however, I'll try to get some better pictures as I go along and clean and cut and plant and...whatever else I will do.

How are you guy's yard work coming along? Are you cleaning like me, or planting your gardens already?

Day 1 Of Happy

So day one, I got myself in the mood by listen to this song, appropriately titled Happy lol. I really love this song. I'll admit, it took a while for it to grow on me, but eventually it grew and grew and I can't help but nod my head and clap to this...maybe even dance some when no one is home...I'd never admit that though lol.

Did you guys start the challenge today? What made you happy?

24 hours? How about 100 Days of HAPPY!

"I'm Sorry BUT, We Have to Let You Go."

You never really expect to get fired. No mater how much you hate a job and talk trash like "they can fire me today. I don't care!!!" You never REALLY want them to fire you lol. Maybe we should stop talking smack. Well, good ole DirecTV decided to fire me from my work at home job. I'm so bummed out I can't figure out how to tie my shoes from the stress of not knowing how I'm gonna help Danny pay these bills. I know my faith is being tested more than ever right now. Just have to stay strong I suppose.

Hello Again!!

Hello whoever may be reading this right now! If you have had a look around, you would see that this space is...well...dead lol. I started this blog as a way to keep track of all my readings, however school and work got the best of me and slowly I lost time to read enough to keep an active blog. Now I've moved out with my boyfriend of 5 years (Some mother figure is going to give me a virtual whooping because of this) and I'm slowly learning what adult life is really like. Let me tell you, from a 21 year old's view, it's not fun!!

I need help guys, I need advice. I need friends. I need support! I'm reaching out to all of you and asking that if you have words of encouragement, please leave them for me. In the mean time, my blog will be my outlet. I want to share my aspects on life as I grow up more and more each day.

Until next time!
