Hi everyone!  I wish I had something to show you!  I was even at a lovely plant show with daughter, friend, and SIL the other day, and did not take 1 picture!  The highlight of that trip, besides hanging with them, was buying a small frozen yogurt at Fro-Yotopia in a flavor I had just discovered called Salted Caramel Popcorn.  It is incredibly good.  
The weather here is into the high 80's now, and we are getting tooooo hot!  
The shade still feels good, but standing in the sun, you kinda start of melt.
Going back to the yogurt....the lady working in there also loves that flavor, and advised a topping of Captain Crunch cereal was the best, so I threw in a sprinkle, and lo and behold it was soooo delish!!!  Yes, that was seriously one of their toppings.  I had not had that cereal since I was a kid and thought it would probably taste like garbage, but it is sweet, crunchy and with that yogurt, just perfect!!!

We have been through a lot of house upgrades this past week.  Our past air conditioning system was 17 years old, and the a/c guys told me that usual length of service for a system in south Florida is 10 years.  Anyway, we had to shell out for a whole new system, and duct cleaning.  

Then came the bathrooms shower and tub faucets.  One was leaking, and one had a knob that was disintegrating that could not be replaced due to age of equipment.  So, we had both bathrooms faucets changed out to central controllers, and they are so nice!  New shower heads too! Something about a nice shower and you are in a lap of luxury suddenly!!!  hahaha.

So now, the old lighting in the kitchen is on the blink.  We have several electrical issues that need addressing, so that will happen this week coming up.  I am just hoping that the horoscope I read a few days ago comes true.....that I will receive a large amount of money this week coming up!  WOW!  If it happens, you all will be the first to know!!!  

So these things have been where all my time, money and energy has gone this past week.  I feel bad that this is all I can tell/show at this time....but after a while, I should be back in the swing again!

Still reading all your blogs though, and lovin it!!!
xoxo- Julie

Do you need a boat for small hand held animals in the tub?

Try using kid sized sandals! Works great! My granddaughter taught me this tonight, and of course, I thought it was genius!!!!

What does every good grandma build her 8 year old grandson?

A display rack out of Legos to hold some of his mini Lego figures! This is a surprise for him when he gets back from having fun with his Mom and sister! Hope he likes it! I did it freehand with scrap Legos, but it still turned out kinda cool. Maybe I can get a Cool Granny Award! Lol.

Oh.....and daughter just made the cutest Lego beaver! This is our rainy night entertainment!!!!!
