I should've posted this waaaaay earlier, but I've had a busy day.

I spent most of the morning potting some "starts" my best friend gave me yesterday and adding an eggplant plant and a straight-neck squash to my upside down planters.

I discovered as I was inspecting the upside down planters that some critter completely removed my orange bell pepper plant. There's not a whisper of it anywhere, just the little stick with it's identifying name on it. Grrrrr! Birds? Squirrels? I have no clue. Gotta replace the pepper plant.

My friend, Suzanne, and I have been best friends for 58 years and yesterday was her first day of retirement. I spent most of the day with her and treated her to a super lunch at one of my favorite places and it was one she'd never been to, so.....

We had a blast all day and I came home with three jade plants, one huge aloe plant, two variegated spider plants, and a huge handful of hummingbird vine.

Everything's been planted and they all look quite happy and perky.

Love my plants.

Thanks for the birthday wishes! Just turned 26. I hate it when I don't get carded anymore, but just the other day I had I customer think that the reason another server brought his beer out was because I'm too young to serve liquor lol. That made my day. Or week. Maybe even my month lol

Happy Birthday, Skittle!

It is such a beautiful morning here. I am hoping that later I can get out in the yard this morning and do some much needed clean-up.

But right now I am going to make some gluten free muffins for breakfast! We have some fresh blueberries that will go perfect in them!

Having my coffee and being lazy. I took most of yesterday and today off from work. It's a beautiful day and I have lots to do outdoors, several planters to get put together and some tomato plants to get in the garden.

Happy birthday Skittle!
If you don't like the food, have more wine!

Just got home from work...haven't told Shrek yet that I have to work tomorrow. He'll either be upset or glad to get rid of me for the day.
