…..

I don’t know what to call this post – so I guess the title will just be those little dots. I don’t want to name each post something about another week passing and I couldn’t think of anything snappy. I didn’t get much of a Sunday afternoon nap because my dog was too busy crawling on top of me to escape the neighbor that apparently bought a canon. Seriously. It sounded like someone was shooting a canon outside…and now they’re shooting guns. It is a non-stop shot fest outside this afternoon…delightful!

This was was pretty great and I’m counting on the weeks ahead to be pretty great as well because if I can only make it through this week and next Monday, then I’m Virginia bound for 6 days. Spending time with the family is always great – so even if things get hinky this week, I’ll have something to look forward to in the days ahead. Only 8 days to go now!

Monday night meal – pork, black eyed peas & potatoes, the 3 P’s. Pretty good, not gonna lie.
Monday night – the end of a legend. Watson even sat down with me to watch Dallas on Monday night , they said good-bye to a legend after all.

I’m pretty sure most of you that read this don’t watch Dallas but I do and I love it. I’ve been hearing that theme song since I was in utero and when I discovered they were doing a remake/continuation of the show, my Mom told me all about how excellent the original Dallas was. When I discovered that the originals were coming back to reprise their roles, I knew watching it was a must-do. I’ve also been watching the original in my spare time and as much of a scoundrel as he is, I’ve got to say that my favorite characters are J.R. and Sue Ellen…which is fitting since my favorite character on the remake is their son, John Ross. Larry Hagman is a TV legend and created one of TVs most memorable villains – I’m not going to lie, between Sue Ellen and John Ross…Monday night’s episode left me a mess. Only 7 more episodes this season, but I’ve just got to know – who shot J.R.??? I bet that doesn’t sound familiar at all…huh? Ha-ha!

Art in Deli on 5th in downtown Meridian
Pansies as far as the eye can see….
Lunch on Tuesday with my sweet friend Kristen – so glad we got to catch up!
Hoof. Hahaha…not sure why that is funny.
I love the random pink flamingo outside Deli on 5th – it gives me the giggles.
Tuesday afternoon in downtown Meridian…
Riding in the car – we were headed to walk at the campground, one of his most favorite things to do.
Last week I disliked Daylight Savings Time – this week, I’m a fan.
The swamp – look out for gators!
The sun casting shadows & rays as it made it’s descent on Tuesday evening…
Let the countdown begin!
Wednesday morning sunrise…
The office daffodils – they are only yellow & white, but they’re still pretty. Just not as pretty as mine. 🙂

Remember when I posted the chocolate wrapper and wondered if it was a sign? Well, I’m seeing “signs” all over the place these days! On Wednesday I needed to look up directions and so I hopped on over to Google to see what I could find out. I should mention, I was doing this from my desk in the middle of the office, in the middle of downtown Meridian…but when I hit get directions, it popped up with Front Royal, VA as my current location. Color me confused, since I thought the computer used your current location and on top of that, I can’t remember when I looked up anything on that computer where Front Royal would have been my starting location. Of course, I suppose if I don’t want something as random as a candy wrapper to be a sign…maybe I can’t call this a sign; I don’t guess you get to pick and choose your signs, right? Still – I thought it was funny that underneath Front Royal it said “not your current location? Correct it!” Ha-ha!

Thanks Google – I’m trying to correct it…
This little creature who is always so happy to get a chance to sit on the porch…
Apparently he is not so much a fan of me kissing and loving on him…
He’d much rather sleep – obviously.
Instead of rain, rain go away…how about ice, ice go away…Spring is here & you’re not wanted anymore.
Coffee…love it. So much. Couldn’t function without it in the mornings.
Discovered this in the store – I may need to buy the whole box, because it was amazing. Hint, hint Easter bunny…

I stopped by my mailbox on Thursday, which is not the norm but my Momma said she’d mailed me something, so I decided I’d stop and see if it was there. It was – and so was my Entertainment Weekly! There are 2 weeks to go until Game of Thrones premieres for it’s 3rd season and I didn’t quite realize how excited I was until I saw this. I got into the show a little after the fact, but I’ve made up for it courtesy of HBOGo on my computer; I watched the first 2 seasons over the summer and read the first 5 of what will eventually be a 7 part series. Daenerys Targaryen and Jon Snow are 2 of my favorite characters, so I was glad to see them on the cover, hopefully they’ll have plenty of screen time this season. If you don’t know anything about this show…it’s awesome. That’s about all I can say. Well worth your time and the books are excellent as well. One of the few times I can say the television series is right there on par with the books. Just great. So – bring on March 31st!

Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen – what can you get into this season in Westeros?
I want to bottle this color and paint my walls…so pretty.
Busted! I always wondered why this wheelbarrow randomly crashed over; I knew the wind wasn’t strong enough to do it. There is the culprit – and you can tell by the look on his face he knows the jig is up!
Watson watching Elementary – he likes Sherlock Holmes but he’s not sure about Watson being a woman…
BMG bought breakfast on Friday morning – yay!
More chocolate – another egg demolished. But hey, they’re only 3 points!
I made David carry my spray paint – which he so kindly obliged, even though he said he felt like he was carrying paint for a nursery. Ha-ha, boys.
Peeps on a stick! At the counter of Joe Muggs.

Can I just interject and say that Meridian has nothing – absolutely nothing beyond the movies for entertainment. David and I went to eat as soon as I got off work on Friday and the movie we were going to see didn’t start until 9:40…and you’d think it would be pretty easy to pass a couple hours…but there is nothing to do in Meridian. We spent a large chunk of that time in Books A Million, where we got coffee, but even that was disappointing because the coffee wasn’t even hot. It was just tepid. Tepid coffee is not good at all. Don’t get me wrong, the coffee was good…just would have been better hot. Step up your game Joe Muggs! Just because you don’t have much competition, it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t care how your product tastes….because after the tepid coffee, McDonald’s coffee was looking pretty good. And I hate McDonald’s.

We went to see Oz: The Great and Powerful on Friday night and in one word: Excellent. It was really a hard sale for David at first, he wasn’t really sure about it – ambivalent was the word he used to describe his feeling about seeing it. I hate thinking that someone is going to a movie with me and they might hate it. Once it was over though, I discovered that I’d picked a winner – not only did I love it, so did David. I’m telling you, that alone made me feel pretty successful! So, if you’re looking for a movie to see, I’d recommend this one highly. It’s awesome.

This one was a winner for sure!
Saturday morning nap – this dog sleeps more than an infant.
I watered my plants & liked the look of the water droplets.
Pretty and green…
Guardian of the Porch
I loved the movie. The book? So far, I love it pretty well too.
Spring means wedges! Yahoo!
Only Isaac to take pictures with today…silly little guy.
Love my necklace…I don’t wear it enough…but that might be because it is a wee bit heavy.
When accessories fight back…

Oh yeah – my purse attacked me. I have a small flower clipped to it; a clip I’ve used on the past 3 purses I’ve carried and never had any issues. Today I realized that the clip also has a pin on it. How did I realize that? As I swung my purse onto my shoulder, I felt something just dig on in…and it hurt. I didn’t think too much of it until I got home but when I looked in the mirror…and it had certainly left its mark. Ow.

Our neighbor apparently has a canon – which means Watson thinks we are about to explode & needs to be right beside me at all times.
Searching for a four leaf clover on St. Patty’s day…no luck though. It is probably because I haven’t had on green once today. Oops.
Trying to take a nap – while he tries to climb up under me to escape the sound of the canon/gun…
The azaleas are booming again! 

Well – I guess that is about it for now. Short, sweet and with lots of pictures. I’ve had a good week/weekend and I’m looking forward to another. Hope you are too!

The End!
