AND, I cooked with LEEKs for the first time…..feel like a real woman (similar to that feeling when I put my first whole turkey into the oven, LOL) LEEKS!!
Found this pitcher at The Closet http://www.theclosetofgreaterherndon.org/ the other day. Placemat too–because I thought they complemented my Polish pottery. Cleared that messy counter that makes me crazy and then had to cut some roses to fill. The pink one is Jackson & Perkins “Heaven On Earth” and the white – “Moondance”. I originally bought the “Heaven On Earth” rose because I loved the fullness of it – so full they resemble peonies when they’re fully open….and I do so love peonies. I bought the “Moondance” roe after seeing it at

I finally got my iPhone 5 so I just had to order a protective case for it in my “Color Eruption” design.
Here’s a gallery of the other designs available for iPhone 5 case swag…..You KNOW you want one!!
Yesterday I intended to put the new flowers I’d just bought into my 3 hanging baskets for the front porch and call it a day with the gardening b/c I had a few other things to do. I sunscreened up and went out and the sun promptly went it. It sprinkled on me a few times while I was out there and in between the sun came out. Four hours later I had the hanging baskets planted, front bed cleaned and annuals planted, strawberry pot filled with wild strawberry plants I found, and a few things transplanted here and there – even did some pruning on my favorite rosebush (the Walt Disney) and then got everything watered. Next I got myself showered and Tylenol’d up, poured myself a large glass of sweet tea and settled in to enjoy the view —
Was happy that my son’t end of school year pool party had been postponed until this Wednesday afternoon because I just think Wednesday is a better day for the event than Sunday. Then a strange thing happened at almost exactly 4:30 p.m. which is the start time for the pool party the rain came pouring down in buckets and continued well past the 6:30 pool party end time. Thank goodness they’d already planned for this rain date.
This morning I checked in with all of my new plants and they’re extremely happy about the soaking they got yesterday on top of me watering them. So satisfying to have that all done so we can all enjoy them!!
I know, I know – it was about time, everyone told me they loved the iPhone once they switched, etc. etc. and the biggest reason I stalled so long? Touch screens and I are not the best of friends. I type really fast and while my sore left texting thumb will be relieved I am frustrated with touch screen typing just as I knew I would be.
HOWEVER, I do love the features, the apps, the connectivity with my other applications like FB, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, Pinterest, all of it….and once I get my ring tone situation straightened out – as in get Empire State of Mind re-installed as the main ring tone, I will be pretty much back in business but better than ever.
What dedicated parents, first of all – what they did to make a memorable, totally fun and safe time for their kids after the prom….yes, all the stressed out mom’s who had fights with their stressed out kids while they were stressing out about getting ready for the prom and afterwards….It was my pleasure to lend a hand….I wouldn’t have missed seeing the awesome production you pulled off…..I hope the kids appreciated it as much as I did. It was a fun time, I won’t lie – I’m exhausted and I didn’t work a fraction as hard as all of you did! If I ever see another chicken wing again it will be too soon!!!

and I don’t even have a kid going to this prom, much less a senior at this school, much less a kid at this school, much less a kid of high school age, much less live in this school district, much less live in this state….LOL I am crazy but helping out a friend who’s in charge of the FOOD for a senior post-prom event at Garnet Valley High School in Pennsylvania. Right now I’m at the office – 10:00 meeting got pushed to 11 so I had an hour to myself to gulp down my breakfast and enjoy my coffee. I’m here until 1:00 then off to Costco to buy more berries and chocolate and stop at Wegman’s to get the Mr. a birthday cake. Today is the b’day and we’re celebrating with the kids since I’ll be gone most of the long weekend.
