WOW where does time go to? Just a few things that I have been up and some of my Fall decorating.
I went back to "Through The Garden Gate" and took a friend and she almost fainted seeing all the beautiful Christmas decorations.
The theme this year seems to be Snowmen
These pillows where stunning and I loved them, but a little pricey
Don't you just love this little fairy .
I just love this - she was beautiful
This area had all white, gold and silver decoration, oh so pretty
Now on to some Santa's .........
I took my friend Teryl to Green Thump Nursery to see their decorations. They were almost finished, running a little slow with their Open House.
WOW so many Snowmen waiting to go to their new home.
This is a bad photo, but had to show you the feeding frenzy of my Hummingbirds. It was almost dark and they their were storing up food for the night. I have counted 20 hummers feeding from my feeders
Now on to my Fall decorations - didn't do much this year, I can't get on a ladder, orders from my son.
So I did get up on the ladder and my 88 year old friend stood behind me. LOL

My beautiful Waldo. He is 12 years old and I do love him so. He follows me everywhere in the house or garden.
This past Saturday the City of Fullerton Parks and Recreation, North Western Mutual and KaBoom
completely renovated Gilbert Park. The park is at the end of my street. All neighbors pitched in to complete the park with new equipment for the children. There must have been a 100 volunteers to complete this project. So I was a volunteer for "PLAYGROUND BUILD DAY 2016"
CHANGING LIVES - PROCEED WITH LOVE
The volunteers were put into different groups and the sign on the name tags placed you in that group.
Here I go with my walker to see what job I could help with and I was put into the painting group.
This lady is from Washington DC with a non profit group getting us charged up to start the project.
I have to tell you what a wonderful sight to see so many parents and children there to help get this program finished.
We were given breakfast buritos and coffee and then for lunch the Slidebar provided Street Taco for all with beans and rice.
Here I am painting up a storm. We had 65 12x12 wooden piece to paint front and back and then go back and put sayings and pictures on them - WOW what a job. But we got it completed.
Santos my helper from the Parks and Recreation Department. We also had another man helping who was in a wheel chair.
The plaques that will go on the fence - I believe that we painted 65 plaques.
This sign will say GILBERT PARK
Some of the men taking cement to the equipment.
I walked over their this morning to see what we had accomplished and I must say it looked really good. They still have the storage containers to remove and the playground was fenced off until the cement sets. But I must say CHEERS TO ALL THAT HELPED.
Today I am a little sore, but feel so good helping - not bad for a 81 year old lady.
Hope you leave a comment so Waldo Lili and I can read them.
