I can't believe it, I'm so excited 100 followers! This blog has helped change my life and I hope that with each post I make there is something that even just one of you finds helpful or encouraging. Thank you for reading, thank you for coming along with me on my journey.

Yesterday was a wonderful day, truly warm and sunny. Randal, our landscaper, planted a bed of dwarf gardenias in the front of the house and they look so cute. I can't wait until they bloom, gardenias smell amazing.

Donna came for brunch yesterday then we were off to TJ Maxx for new spring and summer wardrobe shopping. I hit the mother lode and got some really nice items. And I still can't get over that I was buying size large tops and size 14 bottoms off the rack in the ladies department!

Rob has a 4-day weekend and we have lots planned around here. I set the outdoor room up on Wednesday afternoon so we'll have a place to enjoy a glass of wine at the end of a long day working in the garden. He's going to get my raised beds finished off and I'm going to pot my herbs and tomatoes. Spring has truly sprung around here and so many things are in bloom. My camellias are heavy with giant fuchsia beauties.

We're going to have coffee on the deck then get to work before it gets too hot. Have a splendid day wherever it takes you!


  1. Congrats on 100 followers!

    Those flowers are so pretty. We only have little buds here still.

  2. Yay for 100 followers!

    Love the camelias and the gardenias. My mom has a bush in her yard and it blooms lots and lots of flowers and she does not like them :-o so while they are blooming I give them to my friends.

    Have a nice Easter weekend!
