I had some pleasant little moments today that I thought I would share. The first is for those of you that like the garden updates. Today I was doing a wander around and was totally stunned to find this pretty little yellow flower showing its face, with another not too far behind it. This was planted in the flower bed around the house project earlier this year. I would, just for the record, like to let you know that my husband has on more than one occasion told me that I will never get flowers growing this close to the ocean. Pllllaaaaahhhh! That, is to you Mr. Naysayer ;) (Of course I dragged him outside to rub it in. What kind of a wife would I be if I didn’t??!)
The flower bed by the side of the house. Things are starting to fill in. I love the curly ginger. Can’t wait to see if it actually blooms.
I love sea days like this, when the water is too many shades of blue and aqua to count. Mmmm. So pretty.
The sun peeking onto the corner of the patio. I love that my ferns are starting to get bigger. It’s one plant I’ve always loved and could never get growing in Canada.
My lilies. The stained glass pot is a peace lily and the other one is a white lily that reminds me of fireworks when it blooms – long and explosive looking.
Judy, the lady that gave me this plant, calls it a “shrimp” plant. This was looking a bit scragly for a while and I wasn’t sure if it was going to make it but it’s filling in really well now and starting to flower again.
My pretty fabrics on the line. I washed them today to get the sizing out and now I’m itching to start turning them into things. There’s a couple skirts in there, a couple tops I think, some baby clothes and a baby sling. I get giddy thinking about it…
I tried the brownies again today, and SAME problem. They taste amazing, but I CAN’T GET THEM OUT OF THE PAN!! Argh. I know I’m not an inept kitchen type. I have made brownies before! I’m blaming the oven and the fact that it goes from normal to HOT without giving me warning. And, I don’t think I greased the pan enough. So, this weekend I’m refusing to cook anything until the brownies are all gone! That is, if we can get them out of the pan.
