Random stuff

Sitting outside this evening talking on the phone with my mom (which is where I have to go to talk on my cell phone, thanks so much AT&T!), I took a few deck scenery pictures.  Summer has been really hard on my landscaping/plants/willingness to do much out there.
Loving my flying pigs…
And how the water accumulates on big leaves after even a small rain…
I went to an auction in town this weekend and after I parked, I walked by this bush on the way to the action!  I have never seen a bush like this.  The berries are a light purple and they look like those Styrofoam flowers you buy in the craft store. 
The bush was really interesting…just never have seen one like it ever!  If anyone knows the name of this, I would love to hear about it!
And yes, I shamelessly photographed it with my cell! 
And here’s my pooch Rachel Manatee…I caught a face picture of her, she is barking here, but you can see her gray muzzle and her gray underbelly.  She is after all, 77 people years old!
I’ve got this dorm fridge where my big fridge used to be…not liking that very much, but hopefully I am getting someone out here Monday or Tuesday to look at the fridge to see if it is fixable.  I am praying that it is repairable…it just quit cooling and all the food in the freezer and fridge was lost!  Seems like it is always something!
This book is why I didn’t get much else done this weekend.  I started reading it Friday night and basically couldn’t put it down!  I finished it this afternoon, wonderful book.  Can’t wait to see the movie!
This is one of my next projects I am working on…not going to tell you any more, but hopefully next weekend I will have more to show!
These ratty song books I found at the auction, someone had left them on a table and they were going to throw them away, so, I snagged them!  I remember singing this song, Old Folks At Home, in high school music class.  I will be using them for crafts of course, since I couldn’t carry a tune in a bucket!!

I remember having a bush like that in my yard growing up, but I have no idea what they are. I just remember that they were fun to pick and play with!

You pretty shrub is a beautyberry, I wish we could grow them here, I don't think there is anyother bush with a berry that color. The flowers in the spring are beautiful too, guess thats why its called a beautyberry. ;) Congrats on being in the spotlight this weekend on the blog hop!
