There is good.......

and there is bad..........
first, the good
yummy homemade lemonade
I fill my drink dispenser with slices of lemons and limes, add some sugar and then fill up with ice.

Right before the kids come over, I add spring water.

it is just so good!!

and we had temps in the 90's over the weekend so the lemonade was great!

Our weather has been awesome except for the mounds of pollen every where!

Vacation coming up in another week

Maddox is getting used to him and his mommy not living with grandma and grandpa!

sleeping in his bed.....some nights.

My peonies are covered in are my rose bushes!

The lily of the valley is opening up now in the garden.

and now the bad..........

my poor Jacquelyn was laid off of her job on Monday

and only given one weeks notice

which really, couldn't they have been a little more human and given 2 or 3 weeks notice or at least some severance pay!

I'm so sorry to hear that she lost her job. This world is a crazy place right now.

I love lemonade so much. But I think I might love that drink dispenser of yours a little more.

I love lemonade! Sorry about the job loss.

Karen said...

Oh my. I am so sorry about the job loss. Times are just sooo difficult right now.
But on the bright side, I can almost taste your lemonade, and your flowers are going to be GORGEOUS! I wish we had peonies here in California. They are my most favorite flower from the list of ones I have never even seen before.
Along with a Cardinal. I'd like to see a Cardinal too.
Dumb huh? Only if you're from CA!!!!!!!
HAGD! Karen
