Purple Pumpkin?

Well, it’s not really purple.   It’s orange.   Annnnd, technically it’s not a pumpkin, it’s an orange.    Okay, okay!    It’s an orange orange, and the whole title is just 1 big lie!     Whew!   That feels better getting that off my chest.

The only reason I even said anything about pumpkins is, PP called it a “Puh-kin”.    Which you can see why:

huge orange

Pumpkin? or Orange?

 

It’s the same size, shape, and color of the mini pumpkin she had back in the fall!    And look!    It even has ridges on it!!!    All the evidence of her eyes support her hypothesis!

ridges in side of orange looks like pumpkin

Looks like a pumpkin to me!!

 

 

 Can you blame the poor baby for thinking it’s a “puh-kin”???    Considering she had never in her LIFE seen such a big orange,  she did a great job identifying it, I think!    Well, I could be just a little prejudiced, but I don’t think so!!!

 

 

But, there really ARE purple pumpkins.    See????

Home Sweet Home

(No alliteration today.  Sorry.  😦  )

Here is the post on my new place!!

I’ve been wanting to move for a WHILE , but didn’t know where to go.  Since I go to Sweet Friend’s all the time, to use his computer, I suddenly thought, “Hey!  Why don’t I look around in his park?”  DUH!!  Some days I wonder how I don’t lose my head!  Thank God it’s attached!

Sadly, the only place in there for sale was NOT suitable– by a long shot!

But!!  Brother and I went looking in the sister property.  And we found an excellent trailer mobile home for only $1,000, by owner.   It looked good!  Partly furnished, with sturdy floors, very important to people in my weight class!  And the bathroom was big!  Huge even, for a trailer mobile home.  That’s really what sold me on it.  I have claustrophobia.  So a bathroom where you can sit on the toilet, soak your feet in the tub, and wash your hands at the sink, all at the same time is NOT for me!

Brother talked to the owner, man to man.  When we left, Brother said, “Wait 3 weeks, then he’ll give it to you for $500.  He’s just tired of paying double lot rents.”  Lo, and behold!  I did just what Brother said, and he was right!

I am now the proud owner of my very first home, all by myself!!

My Very First Place, All on my Own!

(But, the green’s gotta go!!  ASAP!  It’s so annoying.)

I’ve never lived by myself before, other than a few weeks here and there, never for very long.  It’s a brand new chapter in my life, and I’m excited for it!

Later, I’ll give you a tour of the inside.  (Becoming more and more purple by the day!)

Here’s my garden:

I’ve never been a gardener:  but being a homeowner must be inspiring me.  I’ve deadheaded the hibiscus 3x already!

Sleeping peacefully, and QUIETLY, in my own home, that I OWN is wonderful.  Thank God for my Home Sweet Home.
