It was a beautiful weekend, weatherwise, here. Lots of sun and pretty warm (in the 60s during the day). Plants are popping up everywhere. The front of my house is happy (though this picture doesn't do it justice):
I broke down and bought some veggies. I got 24 tomato plants (I might get a few more) and I bought seeds for pickling cucumbers, foot long pole beans and butternut squash which I will plant tomorrow after the new moon (plant above ground plants when the moon is waxing, plant below ground/root crops when the moon is waning). If I soak them overnight, they should sprout in a week or less. I expect to be able to plant my entire garden in the next week or two -- no frost in the forecast!
And I bought a six pack of salad greens for fun:
I'm glad it was sunny and nice, because my attitude was not (which is why I didn't do a lot of visiting over the weekend with anyone on their blogs). It was one of those times when I was fed up with everything. Luckily, DH and DD were gone all Saturday and didn't have to put up with me :-)
Sadly, my biz partner, Judy, did. She's a good egg and I'm lucky to have her around.
Hopefully, this week will mark a better attitude for me. Things should be back to normal pretty much (routinewise), the weather is supposed to be *pretty* good and I have my fingers crossed that nothing out of the ordinary happens (unless I win the lottery ... that would be an okay, out of the ordinary thing. ::wink::).
My daughter donated a few pieces of jewelry to the Brenda Novak auction again this year (which started yesterday). They are here:
Set of 3 Earrings--Cats Eye & molded Glass on Silver Wires from Distinctively DD
Yellow Glass Bead and Silver Jump Ring Necklace from Distinctively DD
Red and Silver Glass Bead Bracelet and Earring Set from Distinctively DD
Even if you don't bid, there is a Facebook "like" link under each auction header that will share the auctions on your FB page -- I'd love if you shared it with your friends (and any other auction links that tickle your fancy). It's a great cause.
And now, I will leave you with a few other spring flower pictures from around my place, because no bad mood can stand up to the cheerful face of a daffodil (or a goofy dog):
You See the Outside World as Fascinating
You are simply brilliant. You are bright, intelligent, and creative.
You can't describe your feelings easily - even to yourself. Your emotions are a mystery.
You are a truth seeker. You are willing to accept the real truth, no matter how difficult it is.
You are not prone to compromise. You're set in your ways and proudly so.
That's pretty close to right ... which always unnerves me a bit.
