New mini pendant and is that what I think it is??!!

Since I switched out the glass globes in our kitchen and powder room with the schoolhouse style, I wanted to find just the right mini pendant schoolhouse light for over the sink. But I wouldn't allow my frugal self to spend a lot on it. Besides, I need to cover all the vet bills.

I found one!

Since fall is upon us and we'll be putting our wood stove to good use, I had to swap out my light and airy buffalo check curtains for my dark plaid ones. I must admit, I prefer the light and airy ones. Oh well...

Next, I'm hoping all my green thumb gardening blog friends can help me.

Many years ago I purchased some Sweet Annie seeds and planted them. Well, the next few years... nothing. Then I forgot about it.

The past few years I've noticed this growing all over our property. But I didn't think anything of it.

Is that Sweet Annie?? It smells like it.

Here's what the leaves look like. They are near the base of the stems.

Could it be?? Man, I'll be happier than a tick on a hound dog if it is!!

Finally, here's my Stella waiting for me to play with her and giving me the "stink eye."

Here's Stella when I asked her if she wanted to go outside.

Happy Wednesday, all.

Enjoy life.

Karin, I love the light. It is so pretty. I like the curtains. Today doesn't feel like Fall is coming-it's 85 degrees and humid. Ick.
I don't have a green thumb, so I'm no help. Sorry.
Stella looks wonderful. I hope you had fun playing outside.

Phyllis we had a bit of a cool snap but it warmed up again. Ugh. Stella is doing well! Although I think she's too skinny. But I always think she's too skinny. I'm Polish. I love to feed everyone. If I think someone is too skinny I'm gonna try to fatten 'em up! :> )
Thanks for the info, Maureen!I really appreciate it! ♥
Jinxie, if only we lived closer! We'd have your Archie and my Stella as the BT power couple! ((hee hee))
Thanks again, ladies!

Hi Karin. Stella is the only Boston Terrier that I "know". My first dog was 120 pounds. My "little" guy weighed 65 pounds. She looks lean and athletic to me. Her expression is vibrant and lively. Stella makes me want to get a Boston Terrier.

I've had a few different breed of dog throughout my life. But after having A Boston Terrier, I can't imagine my life without one!! There is something so very special about them. If you love the companionship, unconditional love and loyalty of a dog, a Boston Terrier is the only way to go! But then again, I may be a tad bias.
