My Early Spring Garden

This is just the
tiny beginning of the
colorful show
that my garden puts
on each year.
We lost our 2, very large,
beloved koi
this past winter due to
the extreme weather.
They were with us for
about 6 years.
We'll be adding some
colorful comets later
on in the season
when it's consistently
warmer.
My angel sits in her
place of honor to
watch over
Froggie & his
cave.
Froggie's 1st official appearance
this spring was on
Easter Sunday !
The first warm day
we had in the 70s.
He's very smart!
Some well loved
rustic garden decor we've
been collecting each year.

Going Overboard !

Wow, I'm looking forward to
the royal wedding just like
everyone else but geeeez,
does anyone else think that
things are really getting
over the top with this wedding?
Pez dispenders?
( how tacky)
It's all I hear about on the TV &
I too am contemplating
getting up at 4 am on
Friday morning to watch
the grand event. But take a look at what
people are coming up
with to make money off
of William & Kate.
I think it cheapens things
alot!
The china I can see,
it's kind of traditional. But coasters? Clocks? Poor Kate !
Beer??
OK, kind of cute.
Thimbles?
I wouldn't want
it to be me!
And this is awful,
the Kate Barbie!
Do they want her
to lose even more
weight?
The poor girl.
Awful, I'm sorry.
Oh brother !
Tacky,tacky,tacky!
I hope poor Kate & William
keep all this junk out of
their minds and just
enjoy their big day!
I wish them the best!

" Blog Sisters " Sign-Up !

I'm excited
to host this special event
of a " Blog Sisters" sign-up.
This blogging world of ours
has enriched our lives
in so many ways .
We've all met so many
smart and creative people
who share so much with us.
I thought it would be a wonderful
idea to be paired up with
someone who has so much in
common with you that you
feel like you are family.
Many of us already feel like that
about some people here but
I was thinking of this more like
"adopting a sister".
After the sign up period I
will pair up people to my
best ability based on
likes, dislikes, personalities,
whatever you share with me.
You will hopefully be pleasantly
suprised by your new "Sister"
and get to know her first
by reading each other's
blogs , maybe by emailing
each other, or remembering
her with a little card in
the mail, an little occassional
gift or trinket,
including her in your holidays,
and celebrating each
other's birthdays. You are not
obligated to anything in your
relationships.
Some will blossom more than others.
It depends of course how you
"click" and what you yourselves
put into it.
I'm really looking forward to
this and am excited about
my future
" Blog Sister" too !
All you have to do is leave a
comment on this post
telling me as much as you'd
like to about yourself .
Please feel free to
post my button on your
blog so we get more
blog friends to join.
Sign ups are til
April 30 th !
"Blog Sister" pair ups will
be posted here on my blog
so you'll have to
check back. I should have
them posted by the 1st
week in May !
