I'm Still Here !


HI EVERYONE!
I'M STILL HERE, THOUGH THIS PAST WEEK HAS BROUGHT MORE FLOODS, 
MORE RAIN, COMPUTER GLITCHES AND ME IN SOME NOT-SO-MEMORABLE OUTFITS, UNLESS YOU COUNT RAIN GEAR AND SWEATSHIRTS AS MEMORABLE ;)

SO, I'VE BEEN 'REGROUPING' I SUPPOSE. WE FINALLY GOT A DOSE OF SUNSHINE THIS WEEK-END, THUS FORCING ME TO ENTER THE YARD-O-WEEDS AND I EVEN CHOPPED DOWN A CHERRY TREE (WHICH LEFT ME ON THE SOFA ALL DAY TODAY).... THOSE BUGGERS ARE STOUT. BUT NOT TO FEAR, I LEFT THE GOOD PIECE IN TACT SO IT WILL BEGIN TO FLOURISH. THE WILD HONEYSUCKLES ARE ANOTHER STORY ....


THE FLOOD-WALL COMES DOWN TOMORROW, SO I WILL REALLY BE LEAVING THIS WEEK FOR SURE! - THE ONLY THING I'M TAKING WITH ME ARE MY CAMERA, SOME TEES AND SKIRTS AND LOTS OF BLACK. I HOPE TO RETURN REFRESHED AND ALL SHINY AND NEW- MIND, BODY AND SPIRIT. I'LL GET IN A COUPLE POSTS BEFORE I GO AND WISH ME A RENEWED SPIRIT WHILE I'M THERE ;)


WHAT I'VE BEEN UP TO ...

TAKING LOTS OF PHOTOS AND DOING YARD WORK, STUPID BURBS ;)
IT'S PRETTY COOL WHAT YOU CAN FIND IN YOUR OWN BACK YARD ;)
BROKEN FLOWER POTS, WEEDS AND ROTTING BENCHES.
YEP, THAT'S MY YARD.

CHECK THIS OUT! IT'S MY DAD SITTING BY THE CHURCH 'DOWN HOME'. 
HE MADE THE NEWSPAPER, (AGAIN!)
MORE FLOOD SHOTS. YEP, THAT'S WHERE I'M HEADING ...
( NOTHING LIKE FISHING FROM YOUR DRIVE-WAY )

WHAT I WORE CLEARING WEEDS SATURDAY....
 AN ORIGINAL 'LOADS OF HOPE TEE'(CHOPPED DOWN THE SIDE and KNOTTED) A TANK, SARONG AS SCARF/SWEAT WIPER, RANDOM SKIRT, NEWEST FAVORITE THRIFTED BOOTS AND OF COURSE A SUMMER KNIT BERET ;) 
BITTY-BITTY HAS BEEN DIGGING THE NEWFOUND SUNSHINE AND I DO THINK THE VITAMIN D IS A WELCOME ARRIVAL FOR ME AS WELL :)
MAYBE I'LL EVEN DON SOME COLOR AND AN ACTUAL OUTFIT TOMORROW.....
I CAN FEEL THE COLOR COMING BACK INTO MY CHEEKS ALREADY ;)
( MY FACE CHEEKS THAT IS )
THE "OTHER" CHEEKS ARE GETTING FATTER AS I SIT HERE. 
WONDER IF IT'S ALL THE ICE-CREAM ?
THE COUCH YOGA ?
OR THE HALF-PRICE MOTHER'S DAY CANDIES ???
Hmmm...........
WELL, EITHER WAY, I'M OFF IN A COUPLE DAY FOR REAL THIS TIME. IF YOU DON'T HEAR FROM ME IN ABOUT 9 DAYS OR SO, SEND A HELICOPTER. PLEASE !
THAT'S S-T-U-R-G-I-S , KY ........
I WILL BE ANSWERING E-MAILS TOMORROW AS WELL :)
SORRY ABOUT THE DELAY!
xXx

Oh Reva, I hope you and your family will be OK...I have been following the news with this! You seem to have a great outlook of it all! Your pictures are fabulous! I had computer issues as well over the weekend...I did something stupid and dropped the recharge cord in the cat bowl while still plugged in!! I look at how upset I was at that small bowl of water compared to the HUGE amount of water you are dealing with!! I will pray for you guys!!

Hang in there Reva!
I love, love, love your backyard photos- there are so many amazing shots up there.

Good luck on your trip- I'm glad your folks are ok. Take care, and looking forward to your updates. xo.

OK, I gotcha, so you're on your mini-break now. I really hope you're having a wonderful rest and snapping off more amazing pics for us. You are a natural with the camera - I love your backyard pics - and BTW I hate super-tidy gardens. I love plenty of rot, rust, rambling flowers and broken paths ... sigh, I miss having a garden. I love the Tide t-shirt - the graphic just pops! I think I would just have to wear it everyday:)) Your dad looks like a sweetheart, I really hope things are going OK for you, otherwise, I can always send my chopper. xoxoxoxoxoxoxo

Good luck in the flood zone! I love all your gorgeous photos, Reva. You're so talented!

Sarcastic Bastard said...

I like the Tide shirt, too. Your daddy is a cutie. Hope your family will be okay.

Love you!

Lesa said...

Hiya Reva, First of all, I hope your family is okay. Second,are you taking all these pics or hubby? Who ever is taking them should be a professional photographer. If I ever kill my husband (joke) and need a photographer when I get married again, I'm coming to you!

Lise Marie said...

REVA!! I hope everything is ok for you and your family! It is amazing that you look so good through it all!
