Out and About

 

Today we went to a Garden
Fair here-aka: Loose Park.
The 75 acre park is located
in the heart of the city.
The land once saw the Battle
of Westport. When the park
was purchased in 1927, by 
Ella Loose it was part of the
Kansas City Golf Club. Miss
Loose purchased the land so
that it could be turned into a
park to honor her husband.


 

This is some of the beautiful land-
scaping throughout the park.


 

The fair had several exhibits inside
the Garden Center.


 

So pretty!


 

Aren't these stunning?


 

The "butterfly lady" was
there with her great
butterfly house.


 

If you were to say "Loose Park"
to a resident of the city or
surrounding cities, the first
thing out of their moths would
be "Roses!" The park is well
known for their beautiful Rose
Garden. Brides sign up months
maybe years in advance to have
their wedding at the park.
Some of my bridal photos were
taken here almost 15 years ago.
Here are some of the beauties.


 
 
 
 

I was very surprised to see so
many roses still in bloom!
There are 4,000 roses of 168
varieties in the garden.  The
rose garden was established
in 1931.

 

The fountain was so pretty!


 
 
 

This was attached to one of the
pillars leading toward the fountain.


 

Downstairs in the Garden Center was
a book sale. You know me--I was there!
Each of the hardbound books were 3
bucks a piece and the magazines were
10 for $1. Bargains!  
One of the books I pick up is called
"Garden Junk" A fun one this is going to
be! It has great ideas for using "fun stuff"
in your garden. I thought the cashier was
going to take it!



Oh yes, the standard "selfie"
of us. I'm doing better  with
getting both of us in the viewer.

Hope you enjoyed strolling the
grounds of one of the most
popular historical parks here in

Kansas City.

Throwback Thursday

 

Throwback Thursday has arrived
at Dreaming and I am doing it
with a twist--my way.  :)

Me above 15 years ago. Long hair
and younger.  :) Getting ready for

my first day of school.




Me at the beginning of this
school year. Short hair and
older. Not sure how much
wiser but ... :)
A veteran. Never thought
I would be at this job for
almost 15 years!

What were you up to 15
years ago?

Did YOU Know?



Did you know that the Morton Salt girl
is celebrating her 100th birthday? She
is looking pretty good for being 100
don't you think? She got an updated
logo and a new package design.

Soooo in honor of this festive occasion
I am going to give you 10 ideas for
using salt in and around your house.

1--Clean grease stains from rugs.

2--Remove watermarks from wood.

3--Keep windows and windshields
     frost free.

4--End the ant parade.

5--Freshen your garbage disposal

6-Remove baked on food.

7--Speed clean up of messy dough.

8--Speed up cooking time.

9--Shell hard boiled eggs with ease.

10--Stop weeds in their tracks.

I found these ideas at Reader's
Digest.com--Over 60 Ways to Use
Salt. Or use your friend Google.

I did not write all the descriptions
due to length of some so if you see
something that interests you go
ahead and look it up.
There are some very interesting uses
here.


I bet you thought I was going to tell
you to use it on your food.  :)

Yummy for the Tummy

 

Good morning! I hope everyone's
Sunday has gotten off to a good
start!

Today I have a recipe for you that
I think is perfect for a casual meal
or game day.
So pull up a chair and relax.




Hot Dog Crescent Rolls

1 pkg. of  Pillsbury Crescent
Rolls
1 pkg. of  Hot Dogs
8 slices of cheese or 4 cut in
half*
Mustard-optional
Veggies-optional

Spray a baking sheet lightly with
a non stick cooking spray.

Lay each roll flat, place cheese on the
roll, put a dab or a line of mustard on the
cheese, lay the hot dog on the cheese and
roll up.
Place seam side down on the baking sheet.
Continue with the rest of the dogs and rolls.
Bake according to the instructions on the
package.

*A whole piece of cheese will ooze out and
go all over. Next time I will try a half slice
to see of the ooze is less.

They're Coming They're Coming !!!

say here except TOMORROW
is THE BIG DAY! They will open
the doors bright and early and
there are people camped out
now as I post this!


Another Grand Opening happening
tomorrow is Sprouts Farmers Market!
We have been looking forward to this
opening for awhile!
Sprouts slogan is "Healthy Living for
Less." They offer fresh, natural and
organic food at great prices. Can't
wait to see what it is all about. I
looked at their ad today and their
produce prices are incredible!

6 oz. Raspberries .98 each
Orgaanic bananas-Chiquita .48 lb
Yellow Peaches . 98 lb

Large Cantaloupe .98 each

See what I mean?

Looking forward to both Grand

a bit till we go to Ikea but Sprouts
will be a trip for this weekend.

A Fun Day

 

What better excuse could you have
to sit and read for the day?

One of the things that I thank my
Mom for is the love of books and
reading! ( I can blame her for all
the books that I have. :) ) I have
a hard time wrapping my head
around the fact that some really
don't like to read! And I know that
there are some who even as adults
struggle with reading--to me that is
sad.
It's good that there are programs
around the country where people can
get help.



What do you like to read?

I read most anything--books,
magazines (love them), news-
papers, kid's books (can't get
enough of them) the list goes
on.

What type of genre do you read?

I like Contemporary Romance
mostly. I'll move off the road to
other types sometimes.

Do you have a favorite author (s)?

For me-too many to list.


Happy reading!!
