Okay, I know what you’re thinking… It’s only April! How can Spring be over with already?

Don’t worry. It’s not. But my multitude of posts about it soon will be. This week has been dominated by yard work and beautification, finally getting The Unemployment Cookbook (click here for your chance to win!), a family birthday, and Easter weekend. Not to mention the usual housecleaning (thanks, Dot, for doing such a great job. BTW, readers, you should be jealous of me. My daughter ROCKS the housecleaning chores like nobody’s business!).

I was, in fact, so busy with everything, that I actually forgot to bake the birthday cake. But since it’s Easter weekend it’s okay: we’ll have the big family meal at Mom’s and I’ll bake the cake next week. Yummies two weeks in a row. Jealous again, right?!

So my yard is still pretty much a dirt lot. But at least now it’s a decorated dirt lot. Don’t believe me? Just check out these great pictures.

Dot loves her cactus table, and the shell planter. It looks like coral! The flower beds are just starting to spurt. It’s exciting to see tiny bits of green coming out of the ground! The Felicia Daisies and the Sweet Broom Tree are my favorite right now because of their vibrant colors. I’m also especially fond of the very clean patio alcove which took quite a while to clean and hose down.

All in all, I’d say the week has been a success!

Oh, does anyone know how to grow bacon seeds? Mikey and Erik insist it can be done…





















Whatever you’re doing this weekend, I wish you sunshine and daisies!

And Frankly, My Dear… that’s all she wrote!
