What a surprise.

 This morning we decided we would do some grocery shopping, that was going to be the big event of the day. Now comes the given, red just dont go any place that a tee shirt and cargo shorts are not welcome. I dont own a suit, tie, dress shirt, or dress shoes. dont need em cause if that is what you have to have for an event I wont be there.Except for about 2 days a year here in the "OC" a tee shirt , shorts and sandals feel mighty fine. On those other 2 days I have a pair of Jeans I bought in 2000 and a pair of leather casual shoes.

Soooooo today I put on my cargo short leather  Teva sandals and reached for a tee shirt but I turned to the closet and took out one of my Hawaiian shirts. Jeanie didn't  notice for about 5 minutes  when she look up from farmville her mouth dropped open and those sparkling brown eyes got big as saucers. She couldn't believe it..... A real shirt. and my leather Tevas that are only for special occasions. I usually wear my regular Tevas. We didnt know it yet but it was going to be a special day.

As we walked into the first store on our list to pick up some specials and her meds, we heard an announcement on the PA that anyone in the store with a Hawaiian shirt on could claim a prise at the front of the store. We found out it was customer appreciation day and they were doing all kind of neat things and a lot of giveaways. We went to claim our prize and it was a big nice cooler with wheels. Jeanie got her face painted like a Rabbit and got a flu shot at the pharmacy when we pick up her meds. The pharmacy people just had to take a pic of Jeanie. I must admit that she look pretty cute but I am a tad prejudice.

  Maybe the lotto ticket I bought will be lucky too. ya just never know the Universe surprises us when we least expect it.

I plan to have a great day, i hope you will join me.

This story is a hard one to tell without dragging out a lot of skeletons and I am not going to do that. You are just going to have to fill in between the lines.

First last and always this is Jeanie's house. Jeanie has a heart bigger than I can every describe. While we were traveling in Jeanie's Bottle she let some relatives who have a very different life style than we do live here. When we came home our patio was a Bar Room complete with a " Party Zone" sign and a mechanical Bass that loudly said " The Bar is open" when you pushed the red button,.a Round bar with stools and a well stocked Beer cooler.

Needless to say the ambiance was a tad chilly when we said we were turning the patio back into a patio. We checked Craigslist and found a free patio table and chairs,
 Jeanie and the start of our new "Serenity Garden" with the Bar Room stuff stacked in the background. Jeanie and I discussed what we had in mind for our patio and decided we wanted it to be a place of serenity with flowing water, birds, and lots of year around colorful plants.. So be it .... We had a lot of concrete and a little dirt. We need more dirt and that meant that some concrete had to go, to be exact a piece of concrete 4 foot wide by 6 foot long by 4 inches thick.    This may be a problem ..... but no problem is to big to conquer to have our serenity Garden.

I plan to have a wonderful day, i hope you will join me.

If you check my last blog you will understand the title of the blog today.. A facebook friend  ask about starting a blog so I sent her the link to mine. I decided while I was here I might as well write a line or two It has been so long I dont even remember how to post a pic. LOL. 

Well anyway...Our plans when I last posted , as always, were written in the sand. We are still at home and have so many projects going it sometime feels a tad over powering.. Ima thinking that I might just take a few minutes each day for a few days and bring all 16 of my readers up to date on what we have done  in the past 2 1/2 years.

We have learned a lot, had a lot of fun,planned a lot, changed plans a lot, made trips to the Docs a lot, changed meds a lot, and improved our health a lot. O and took a bunch of pics, which i will post when i review how it is done.

The Big things that we have done was turn our Patio into a beautiful serenity garden from a bar room.Learned how to treat Jeanie's Dystonia instantly so the all to regular  trips to ER were eliminated. Started remolding the house and still working on the RV remodel, and of course RV Kitty had to have his equal share of our time.

Ok I got a pic posted so I am on my way. I will review  the instructions and see if I can make a decent blog out of this for a few days or weeks or years..... as always our plans are written in the sand.

I plan to have a wonderful day i hope you will join me.
