It's Friday and It's Becoming a Habit: This and That Day!
Today it is hot and humid and cloudy.
Amazing how much cooler I feel when I look into the garden and see and hear the fountain.
I cut the white roses this morning.
They are the very first blooms from one of the new roses that I planted this year.
This rose is called Chardonnay and is a hybrid tea.
The scent of this rose is a real delight.
The hand full of green beans came from my balcony garden and I'll put them into my salad.
The strange looking hook/needle looking thing is a Tunisian Crochet Hook.
I'm taking a class on-line at Craftsy to learn more.
Now that my special tours are over at the MFAH, I have time to go to class!
The Rice Owl baseball team has three games at home against our cross town rival the Cougars of the University of Houston. In between baseball games I plan on reading the next book in the Haunted Bookshop Mystery Series: The Ghost and the Femme Fatale.
Are you old enough to remember the wonderful black and white film The Ghost and Mrs Muir?
You might enjoy this cozy mystery series if you do!
It is Friday and that means Postcard Day.
The first card is a vintage linen look card of the Buccaneer Hotel on the Seawall on Galveston Island.
When I lived on the Island, the hotel was still there, but was retirement facility.
Alas, the Buccaneer is no more. It was demolished to build a better facility.
The back of the card does have a message, but it is written in pencil and badly smeared.
There is a 1937 postmark and the stamp has been removed.
The second card also from Galveston Island is a modern one.
From the back of the card:
"On September 13, 2008, Hurricane Ike roared ashore on Galveston Island bringing a massive saltwater storm surge that killed thousands of trees, including many of Galveston's stately 100 year-old oaks that had been planted after the Great Hurricane of 1900. Many of the trees have been carved into whimsical sculptures." My favorite is the dog and the water hydrant!
A big thank you to the lovely Beth for hosting Postcard Friendship Friday.
Wishing YOU well and much joy!
