Another random post day

It's pretty isn't it?  This was the year it finally had blossoms, not just one, but many.  I think I planted this baby over 5 years ago with a S L O W but steady growth, and this is the results year, hooray for me!  It's a Trumpet Flower for those of you who will wish to know this information, and the hummingbirds LOVE it!  I waited for them to come back so I could take a photo of the birdies too, but they didn't cooperate.

Yesterday I had a girls day with my pals. A birthday celebration.  We started at the store I work at and then went to the movie MAMMA MIA. It was avery good movie, fun, intersting and I had to laugh out loud a few times.  It is well worth getting some girlfriends together and spending a girls day out, complete with a nice dinner afterwards.
Mamma Mia!We headed for Red Robin for some beers and burgers (I had Raspberry Limeade, kind of like a margarita without the kick).  

Oh, and yay me, no laundry for a while.  The sewer is giving us issues (you have GOT to love country living) so no laundry, dishwasher or other large water uses, like the jacuzzi tub.  So, I am currently waiting for Mr Plumber dude to return to "fix" the issue so I can get back to the enjoyable task of laundering our clothes.  AHH, those things we miss when you can't actually DO them.

I just picked these up at the library.  I couldn't find the #14 by Janet, so I had to settle for these.  How WILL I ever get through my days......LOL

Your Trumpet flowers, look just like the ones on my Trumpet vine. LOL Believe or not, Don had actually cut down this vine when we moved in, and it has now returned, and I believe it would take over, if we let it. HA!

I thought I might see a DWAG Pazzle siting today, on HSN. But there times must of been screwed up, because it was listed for 4:30 PM - 6:30 PM, and it was over at 5:00 PM, so I have no clue if you were on earlier or not.

Come on over and I will lend you #14, it's just sitting here.

oh you had to mention Red Robin! There has been a ton of commercials on tv for them, but we don't have any here. I want a RED ROBIN! LOL

Those flowers are gorgeous! Ohh Red RObin sounds yummy. We just had one open up near here but so far the lines have been too long. We'll get there one of these days. I haven't caught #14 yet either. She's such light reading I can't justify buying the HCs though.

Saw the show at the theater and from reviews, it sounds like the movie is just as good :0)
