I love the cheerfulness of flowers and the hope they bring me. If you think about it, at times we too go through the same kind of phases. Dormancy, new growth, shedding old things and blossoming anew.
Pictures and philosophy for you my friends....

Anyway, I just googled and found I should be on clear liquids only to give my tummy time to get better. Let's just say what sounded good to eat wasn't clear! So, I'll do better now that I know and take my little pills and hopefully by the time by birthday rolls around next weekend I'll be back to my usual. We have a trip planned to here so it would be really sad if I couldn't do it.
Talk to you all soon....

the reason....Gary and Nick had gotten me an IPOD and Nick then spent hours loading songs and pictures and other info from my computer onto it! I love that he would be willing to invest time into something for me.
Secrets are easier to keep of course, if you don't live in the same house. After I opened the gift Amy made for me, Karl said she had been putting hours into it too. So this is what I opened....
As I'm writing this post, I am listening to this and I am now a ready to stand and be noticed!
Thanks for listening and letting me share,

I so appreciate what each of my friends add to my life. You have helped me through tough times and rejoiced with me in good. So to you I say "I hope you get spoiled today, because you deserve it!"
Take a look at this and may it bring a smile...

How can anyone be sad on a bright sunny day?
The peonies are ready to burst,the lilacs to pop,
and this plant that I don't know the name of is in a riot of bloom.
A trio of tiny blossoms:
and just one more from my cottage type front yard...ttfn,k

Or do what I did and use a 40% off coupon at Michaels Crafts. Then you can make your own fun cupcake whenever you want. I might be willing to loan mine out though...

But...customers did come, not a ton but they trickled in all day. It was fun to see what people chose and especially little Violet who needed a doggy stamp and pink stamp pad!
Nope I'm not using it to get me through something, I'm actually working retail for a few days. My dear friend Janene is getting a much needed break from running her cute "card and rubber stamp store." She will be off playing at a crafting show and I will be attending to her customers. Hoping some will be in for a bit of retail therapy themselves. It just wouldn't be that fun without lots of people stopping in. I'll let you know how it goes. I will be scoping out the loot for what to spend my store credit on too....
Then since it is First Thursday and my love won't be home tonight, I am taking myself to Red Robin for dinner. I always get the same thing, boring maybe but delicious. I get the Teriyaki Chicken Burger with no bun, no cheese, no mayo plus extra teriyaki. Then I cut everything up and have a salad....oh and the fries are on a seperate plate. Yep, gotta have the fries! Isn't that really why we go to RR? Lots of sodium yes, I'll be guzzeling water for a couple days but sooo worth it in my opinion.
I have been doing a bit of crafting and I'll share soon as I take some photos...
