Everyone Loves Watermelon....Right?
Good Monday Evening Everyone,
Wow, can you believe that it is already the 6th of May??? I can't.....it seems like it was just yesterday that I moved into my new home in February! But, I'm not complaining...especially after all the rain we got last week, the Sun was out today....there was a nice breeze blowing....and I had breakfast with my 2 daughters this morning, and my 4 1/2 month old grandson! It was wonderful, and I knew Summer is on it's way!
When I was growing up, one of my favorite times of the Summer was when you could see all the watermelons for sale, and my Daddy loved him some watermelon! He would go to the local little farmer's stand where all his buddies whom were farmers were selling fresh local produce. He would load up the car with watermelons and come home. We would ice them down in a cooler that morning and then he would make us go outside to play! So, the water hoses were brought out and slung over a tree branch.....water sprinklers were set up and all faucets turned on full blast!
And, we played, and hooped and hollered like we were "the rich kids with a swimming pool" in their back yards....lol....and then at lunch time Mom would call us in and a sandwich would be waiting....and we ate those sandwich's so fast cause we knew Daddy was going to soon "split open the melons"......he would get his knife and on the picnic table slice open those wonderful, red, ice cold melons and we would dig in.....there's nothing like it.....
So, thinking of that this past weekend and after looking at prices of the shoes I wanted on the Internet....I made me a pair of Watermelon Shoes....took a $5.99 pair of plain white tennis shoes from Wal-Mart and started painting....I LOVE THEM and I hope you do also.
|Don't look how pale my legs are...lol|
|I just love them!|
I know that Daddy will get a big kick out of them when he sees them....
