Gifts

Happy Friday! Here are a last few random pictures from around my house as I stay inside out of the extreme heat this week.

My daughters gave me this cute little plant one mother’s day a few years ago. I don’t have any really plants around the house any more. I did for a couple of years up until a few months ago when gnats showed up around the house and I had a good feeling they were coming from the plants.

I didn’t want to deal with trying to rid the plants of them and the plants were all out growing their pots anyway, and I didn’t really have room for them to get bigger. So, I made the somewhat painful decision to cut them all down and disperse them around the yard to be mulched by the lawn mower and mixed back into the earth. Since then no more gnats in the house!

Every Christmas without fail, my mom gives all of us kids calendars. I usually get one with beautiful landscape scenes. I hang it on a board by the door in our kitchen coming in from the garage.

Do you have special gifts from loved ones sitting out in your house all year long?
