Weekend Chit~Chat

Good Morning! My friend, Julianne asked if I could believe how many entries there were for my giveaway. No, I really can't. I am very surprised and overwhelmed by all of the wonderfully kind comments. Thank you so much and I'd especially like to thank you for your friendship!

I used to select a winner and am excited to announce that TJ from Just Another Day at the Kihn's is the lucky duck. Congratulations, TJ! Thank you again, to everyone who joined in. I wish I could send you all a little something!

It was cool and rainy every day this week, which was a nice break from our usual August weather.



Morning Glory
All of the morning glories closed up.

But showed their faces as soon as the rain stopped.

This is the last sunflower in my garden.



I also wanted to show you how big Daisy has gotten! She is almost 5 months old now.

She loved all the rain we had this week.

She also loved the mud puddles in the back yard.

Please let me in!

I hope you all have a great weekend. We will be going to Phillip's family's house to celebrate his mom's birthday.

Hi Kelli,

Congratulations to TJ on being the winner of your giveaway.

We could use some of the rain you are getting as we are still in a severe drought. All of your flowers are gorgeous especially that daisy :-)

Have a great weekend,

Oh, that rain sounds w-o-n-d-e-r-f-u-l. Wish we had a little of it. All the flower pictures are beautiful. Nice pictures of Daisy too.

What awesome photos. Daisy is a cutie! So much emotion in her face, esp when she had to come in from the rain. We could use some rain-send it along please.
I think Morning glories are one of my favorite flowers, esp the blue.

Hi, Kelli. Love the photo. Love the rain here in Texas, too.

I have tried to post twice to Show and Tell and my link is removed. I re-read the instructions, and I still don't see what I am doing wrong.

Oh boo-hoo! I am so sorry I missed getting my name in the pot for the give many of the things I love! Emilie Barnes, butterflies, aprons....and I just love visiting your blog, but have been bogged down here with so much coming in from my garden to be canned and put up in our home freezer that I've had next to no time for the computer! I also had my mom here for 6 weeks with a fractured ankle...
Anyway, just wanted to pop in to see what I have been missing!
