It's A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood.

 Hi all, I hope you had a super duper weekend. Can you believe it's March,and Spring is just a few weeks away? My to do list for the year hasn't been touched. Basically I have been taking it easy and enjoying the glorious days we've been having here in Florida. Last Sunday the weather was perfect, the sun was shining, the birds were singing, (okay maybe not) it was just a beautiful day. So, I grabbed my camera and headed out to take pictures of whatever caught my eye. And the tree pictured below did exactly that, so much so, I started humming Mister Rogers theme song. It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood.......

Is this tree amazing or what? I love the vibrant color and how it makes such a bold statement!
 Enjoy the the rest of the pics!

Does anyone know what kind of tree this is?

Thanks for stopping by!



  1. Oh my I wish I knew because that is one gorgeous tree!

    1. Hi Ms. Laura, I found out the name of the tree, It's called a Yellow Trumpet.

  2. Greetings Lory, I think this tree is a Tabebuia Caraiba (family). Don't ask me how to pronounce it though. This family of trees has quite a few in the family that looks similar to that particular one you posted. However, you have to look closely at the leaves and the tree to determine which one it is... I saw the Tabebuia Chrysotricha and the Tabebuia Argentea. Look them up and be sure to take a very close look at the leaves. Hope this helps.

    1. Hi Mandy, the common name for the tree is called a Yellow Trumpet. Thanks for the info.

Bar Stool Makeover

Hi all, this week I have another makeover. Last week's post was a chair makeover, this week it's bar stools. Here's a little history of how I acquired the bar stools. I have a friend named John who owns a thrift store. One day, while shopping in his store I purchased a beautiful 1920's sleigh bed. As I was leaving John informed me that he had a gift for me, since I purchased the bed. My response was, "for little ole me". As he scurried to the back of the store I WAS SO EXCITED and I couldn't wait to see what the gift was. When I saw the bar stools I was SPEECHLESS!!!!!! They were WICKED NASTY! But how could I resist them, they were a gift with purchase (free). And besides they had  great potential. I brought the stools home and got busy. First, they had to be disassembled. Next, I scrubbed and scrubbed and scrubbed, so much so I was dizzE (dizzy). lol! I was in such a state of shock, I forgot to take a picture of the seat cushions. Trust me, you don't …

This too shall pass

Hi everyone, 

It has been quite some time since my last post. Two years and four months to be exact, but who's counting. I am posting today to encourage/motivate you. Things are changing so rapidly in our society, and the coronavirus pandemic has most of us on edge. Some of us have never experienced anything of this magnitude, and the thought of illness, losing our jobs/everything we have worked for, and being isolated from family and friends can be quite scary, but be encouraged.

My prayer is that all will be well with you and yours. And that you will be intentional and live on purpose in the days and weeks ahead. Rest assured that this, too, shall pass!

Chat soon...

Stuck inside, My Master Bedroom Makeover

Hello everyone,

As I write this post, I am seated at my desk, looking out the window. The view is fantastic because I have the best apartment in the complex, in my opinion! Every day I get to look out at the picturesque panoramic views of the golf course. But, the best part is watching the sun dance on the rippling water in the pond and the ducks taking their daily stroll. 

Today, like most, the workers are busy readying the facility in anticipation of the course reopening. They are preparing for the once steady stream of golfers who frequented the trail, before social distancing. 

I love this quote by Benjamin Franklin 
"Don't put off until tomorrow what you can do today. 
I couldn't agree with him more. 

I said all of that to say, it's time to put it in high gear. Instead of being bored, aggravated, complacent, and down-right mad, I choose to make the most of an unpleasant situation.

Today's post is all about getting things done now, and the steps I am taking to make i…
