It's been a great day on my end. Got up early (way too early for a saturday). Got some photos of the bunnies (cause two of them left this morning on a cross country trip), went to the post office, bank, flea market, antique shop, walmart, lunch at Stevie B's pizza (my daughter's suggestion) and out to my son's to deliver Lawon's belated birthday present. He got a remote controlled Jeep. He seemed really happy with it. Played with it the whole time we were there. :) YAY! picked out a good one. Came home, took me a nap (I really feel old sometimes) and then we went to The Mill. It's a local amitheatre. Had a really good time with the neighbors listening to Carolyn Martin.....Now on to the pics.
Let's start with the pumpkins....
So far I have counted 11 pumpkins (that seem to be doing very well). I was really amazed at how many there are now.
this is one of the first two. I'm going to have to break out the ruler..it's hard to see how big this really is.
This one is a few days old. I think this is going to be a cinderella or a jaharradale.
this one is about a week or so old and I believe it is a cotton candy or a lumina (white). there's two of them and they both look like tomatoes. Soft skins too.
and these are two new ones that have just popped up in the last day or so.
was that enough pumpkins, Susie?? lol!
The sunflowers out front are looking good (aside from the heat stress). There have been four or five blooms and many more on the verge.
The bunnies are finally done (I'm sure everyone is tired of hearing about them by now). I got a couple of shots before I had to pack up a couple of them for their long trip. Here's the four of them. I'm really glad that the ladies over at Freebies for Crafters and Sew4Home posted about these bunnies. I had a blast making them (and I have a feeling that there may be more in the future). Thanks again, Ladies!!
The Mill is a fairly new (fall 2010) ampitheatre located in Villa Rica, Georgia. If you're local you should come check it out sometime. They have a farmers market on Wednesdays and various other events going on all the time. Tonight was their 2nd of the summer music series. My neighbors (Barry and Amy) went to the first one a couple of weeks ago and got to see The Drifters (of course I found out about it afterwards). Tonight was "Western Swing". I was not too excited about the music style when I heard it...however, I decided I would give it a chance. I'm really glad I did. We had a really good time. We got to see the Carolyn Martin Band. They were really good and I was surprised at how much of the music I knew. My parents listened to this style of music (among many others). It wasn't just the music, I knew the words to a lot of the songs. Made me miss my mom and dad a lot (my mom passed away in 2005 and my dad in 2007). I got to talk with Carolyn after the show...she's a very sweet lady. I even got an autograph. :) Go check out her website. Who knows, you may be surprised how much you like her music too.

Shaylor (my grandbaby) shaking her thing. she has a big ol' fan to cool off with. :)
And guess what I found out? There is Paranormal Investigators right here in Villa Rica. Who knew? They are going to be starting to give tours of the area and one of the guys from Paranormal Nation is going to come and help them kick it off in October. My neighbor, Amy and I will be in line waiting for this one. I even bought a raffle ticket for a chance to win a tour package (didn't win though). Their name is Wartime Paranormal. You can check out their website here. Who knows, maybe we'll be in the same tour.
Have a GREAT night!
