About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Lemonade Stand

   During a lull in the rain yesterday Jeff and the girls decided to go geocaching.  Oh yes, I was there, too, but I got to make jewelry in the car.;-)  As we were driving along, Jeff suddenly turned the car around and this is why:

   Aren't those little boys darling??  They made the lemonade stand all by themselves and even sold cookies!  They told us the cookies were good as "they had tried one last night.":-)

   Yes, the prices were a tad high (50 cents or $1 for lemonade!) but the boys were charming and we were so glad that we stopped.  Hey, they even posed for pictures!
   Next time you see a lemonade stand you should treat yourself, too.;-)

Too cute, I love to see kids who are not afraid to do a little work to earn some money. I read your post about rain. It made me miss Florida so very much. We don't get much rain here in Reno. I love watching the lightning also. We missed the opening ceremony to the Olympics. I was sad, but a dear friend of mine recorded it on her DRV and brought it over for me and the girls to watch. I can't wait. Have a wonderful week.

P.S. When do I find out who my swap partner is, and I kind of forgot the mail off date. Could you let me know?

The prices were high because they had to pay for that wonderful stand they made! ☺
By the way...making jewelry, talking on the phone AND taking pictures? On the first picture you actually got your whole family in the shot including yourself! Tricky tricky! Very very cute post!

How wonderful! How sweet of you to support the local entrepreneurs! I bet those boys were just tickled!

Heather said...

I don't know what I love more...the fact that the boys HAVE a lemonade stand that they MADE themselves, that you were included in the photo via side mirror or that your husband was aware enough to turn around and have fun...I wish we lived next door too, Lori!
