Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #442

Messy Messy Fail - How did the summer go so fast?  There are always so many things I want to do, and I barely got to any of them.  

Tidy Victory - We have had our sweet Stella puppy for a little over a month and we just love her.  She still has her accidents in the house but she's continuing to get better every day.  The kids love her (except when she continually tries to jump up into their laps) and she's been a joy to have.  Need some happiness in your life?  Rescue a dog!

Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #441

Messy Messy Fail - In an effort to save money this summer (and because I didn't see any that I liked), I tried to put together my own hanging baskets for the front porch.  It's a very shaded area so there's a limited amount of flowers that will do well.  The first set of impatiens I planted in the baskets ended up turning very yellow, aka too much water and not enough light.  The second attempt I used new guinea impatiens that were on sale, but I think I must have missed watering a few of the containers because they somewhat dried out before I even got them in the planters.  So long story short - I wasted two sets of hanging baskets.  Bravo.

Tidy Victory - Our pumpkin patch is doing FANTASTIC this year.  So far we have TONS of large Connecticut field pumpkins, pink pumpkins, hubbard squash, some gourds and bunch of other varieties that I just don't know the name of.  Oh - and blue/green pumpkin.  Love it!

Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #440

Messy Messy Fail - I love borrowing from the library so much and the library loves me.  I think I am funding the addition they are building with all of my late fees.  

Tidy Victory - Regardless of my tardiness, I haven't read this many books in the last year that in the last 10 years.  Definitely a tidy victory because reading is the best!

Happiness Is Homemade Link Party #439

Messy Messy Fail - Remember last summer when I saw so excited about the dahlias I had planted, how easy it was, how gorgeous they were, etc.  I said "I will never not plant these, so easy!"  I never planted them.

Tidy Victory - Until this past Thursday!  It's actually ok, they will still bloom beautifully in the fall, but why I procrastinate on such easy things is beyond me.
