A bed made of canvas or of rope mesh and suspended by cords at the ends, used as garden furniture or  onboard a ship.

 There's something about a hammock that bids
a welcome to all ages. Granted certain ages
should just view them from afar!

Comfy under the blossoms!

Have you ever been on a hammock?
We have and somewhere I have pictures
of that occasion, but I can't find them.
We were at Hilton Head about ten
or more years ago. 


It  was fun and I should also say


Funny to see two people 
over 60 trying to get into
a hammock, and to
stay in it without 
tumbling out! LOL!


With staying in so much
this summer, I spend a lot
of time entertaining myself
looking at Pinterest and

I've been sharing lots of
pretty and interesting things
from Pinterest on Facebook
and decided to do the same 
here on my blog. 


Some of my family and friends are 
so upset and lonely staying in
during this pandemic
so I've decided to have a
little ministry of helping 
them enjoy being inside so much. 


I say thank you Lord, for
providing computers,
cell phones, iPads, etc.
to help us entertain 
ourselves during this time.
And, also brains to understand
how to use them at this age! 


 I've enjoyed seeing the different colors
and designs of all these hammocks.
Do you see a favorite?
Of course mine is this one -

 The prints are so colorful!

Could you take a nap here?

Or do you prefer the

 Even in a fancy place
like this:

 You wouldn't catch me in a
hammock these days!

But, it's fun to pretend and to 
dream of times past. 


I enjoy seeing how people like
decorating the outside of their
homes, as well as the inside.

 How about that birdcage above
this hammock hanging from the tree!

 Or pretend we are on an
island someplace.

 A vacation far away?

Can't you almost feel the cool ocean breeze here?

Beautiful color!

This one is called a romantic hammock:

 For me, for now, I think I just
prefer this lawn chair with the 
legs on the ground, maybe no
chance of tipping it over!

 May your dreams be happy ones!



While we are still staying in during the pandemic
we try to think of some fun things to do.
Since we live near the beach, we sometimes
grab a sub or a pizza and go to the beach
to eat it. There are picnic tables along
the road (A1A) with easy access. 

Joe took a picture of me after we ate:

We didn't wear our masks there, but we
did put them on just to take pictures. 

Here's one of Joe in his mask!

Our friend, Janice, made these masks for us!
We love the choice of fabric she used.
Thanks, Janice!

I entertain myself playing on the computer
with Pinterest and FaceBook.
Here are some picnic pictures I posted on
FaceBook of neat looking picnics!
My FB friends and I go on virtual  
with sharing pictures found on Pinterest.



Since we can't travel we have to take a virtual 
trip! Have a virtual picnic! Pretend!

Ride your bikes to a picnic area!

 We didn't eat on the sand at the beach like this,

Or this

but, we enjoyed sitting on the picnic table,
eating our subs, and enjoying the fresh
ocean breeze! 

I hope you enjoyed seeing the virtual picnics!




 Everybody knows I love roses, and yellow roses are my favorite,  this has been since I was a teenager or younger.  I always had them for corsages for dances, etc. I carried yellow roses as my wedding bouquet. My husband always surprised me with yellow roses on our anniversary and my birthdays, and sometimes, just because!

In May I started featuring the Birth Month Flower on Facebook. I did Lily of the Valley. May is also my birth month. Everyone enjoyed seeing daily posts of Lily of the Valley. I wish I had thought to also do them here on my blog, but I didn't think of it in time. 

Here's the Flower of the Month Chart:

I did think to do it again in June. I always thought June Birth Month Flower was just Rose, but the chart above lists it as Cream Rose. I chose that since it is a little more unique. White are more common than cream roses, don't you think? I found some really gorgeous Cream Roses (mostly on Pinterest.)



I found some handpainted Cream Roses too:

 Beautiful painting!

Here's another:

I don't know if it is acrylic or oils.
I also don't know who the artists are.

 Of course I had to post some with a tea cup!

 And in a bowl:

 June's birthstone is pearl, and I found a
lot of beauties with pearls!


 A brides bouquet!

Cream Roses are so beautiful!

 Look how fluffy these cream roses are!

Forget Me Not Flowers and
Cream Roses

I even found some novelty
Cream Roses!
 Crocheted and lace cream roses!

Capiz Sea Shell Cream Rose:

 How about a close-up?

 I have had this poem below for many years. It fits right in with this post.


Unfolding the Rose
It is only a tiny rosebud
A flower of God's design
But I cannot unfold the petals
With these clumsy hands of mine.
The secret of unfolding flowers
is not known to such as I.
God opens this flower so sweetly,
Then, in my hands, they die.
If I cannot unfold a rosebud,
The flower of God's design,
Then how can I have the wisdom
To unfold this life of mine?
So, I'll trust in Him for leading
Each moment of my day.
I will look to Him for His guidance
Each step of the Pilgrim's way.
The pathway that lies before me
Only my Heavenly Father knows.
I'll trust him to unfold the moments,
Just as He unfolds the rose.

I'm now posting the July Birth Flower of the Month on my FaceBook. The July flower is Water Lily and Delphinium (or Larkspur) I learned that they are the same, did you know that? I didn't. I chose to use the Water Lily to post daily. They are in several colors.  I will try to remember to do a Water Lily post the end of July or first of August.

I hope you enjoyed the June Flower of the Month Roses! 

Just remembed this picture!
This was taken at my 50th Class Reunion.
We decorated the tables with yellow roses.
I was on the decorating committee!
