Funniest Post Ever

So I bought some new makeup recently and got my hair cut yesterday.
I read a lot of blogs were they talk about their new makeup, their makeup
routine, and they post these great pictures of themselves. So I tried to talk
pictures of myself with my new makeup and my new hair cut. Let's just
say that a lot of the pictures were deleted. I don't know how they do it,
I cannot afford to have a  real photographer come in and take pictures for
my posts so this is a funny look at how I did.

I was trying to show my eye makeup which is Covergirls Tru Naked Nudes eye shadow.

I was trying to show my hair cut here, which I am growing out for my daughters wedding
next year. I want it to be shoulders length or chin length. I look like a goof ball, they say
to look up in pictures so that you don't see the double chin. The lipstick is Madelline Truffle
Tease and the blush is Milani in Romantic Rose.

#1 Covergirl Tru Naked Nudes Eye Shadow
#2 Mabelline Truffle Tease Lip Stick (this is pretty long lasting)
#3 Milani Romantic Rose Blush (it comes in the shape of a rose)

Hot As Hades Tomatoes

Today it is just mid July and it is hot as hades here. I had to
go over to Charlottesville today for a couple of hours and practically
melted over there from the heat. More on that later. When i got home
and walked Mandy, I saw that I have a ton of tomatoes that are ready to
pick. So once it got a little cooler outside, I walked out ad picked tomatoes,
grabbed some basil leaves and thawed out a sheet of Pepperidge Farm puff
I had a container of crumbled goat cheese, so I drizzled olive oil on the center of
the dough, sprinkled with goat cheese and added my variety of tomatoes. I laced if
with ribbons of my basil, added pink salt, pepper, garlic and rosemary and topped with
more olive oil and Parmesan cheese and baked for 20 minutes at 350 degrees. And
there you have a dinner from my garden.
That's one way to beat the heat!

Friday Storms

Last Friday around 5 pm, a storm came rolling in with lightning. The temperature
dropped and Mandy and I went out on the to watch  the storm come through. I snapped
a few pictures of what is blooming now.
The storm from my porch, after this picture it really got dark fast.
I snagged some roses from the house next door for the porch.

Blooms from bulds I picked up from Big Lots, like the Gladiola.

These plants come back from last year.
My tomato plants are growing like crazy.

The Yarrow and Queen Anne's Lace from last year.
I spotted a cute little snail on a leaf and a hummingbird flew up on the porch near us,
but I couldn't get to the camera in time. Happy July!
