I love their little tiny pots of plants. Some are expensive. I buy the $2.99 ones. Since I have a brown thumb, I have to replace a lot of them. Like for my tool box garden, I didn't plant them soon enough and one won't make it. Plus we are still having freeze warnings this week.
The birdies aren't going to get a bath here.
This is my favorite hardy plant. The furniture reminds me of the set that I just got. I still see that set for $50 and I paid $17. Mine has 6 pieces.
I just loved these guys. I forgot to check the price.
You can kinda tell that the same person has done all their samples, can't you.
Something else I spied.
It's just a pretty place to visit on a cloudy, cold day. Trust me, when it is just a bit warm, this place can be a hot box.
What's happening here
Our daughter in law is feeling better. She is home now and loving being with her family. She has lots of restrictions and receiving meds, shots and blood test daily right now. Thank you so much for praying. Thank you Diana for asking for prayers. I know they work. Sometimes when you are caught up in it all, you need help on the outside. It seemed that things were at a stand still until the prayer warriors took over. Thank you so much.
Our little Church in the Mall, has a saying "Where hope is found." This Sunday there was someone there for Compassion Sunday about adopting needy children abroad. They shared a video of the children waiting for sponsors and how excited they get when they are sponsored. Our oldest granddaughter was there and her middle name just happens to be Hope. She and her friend spent the whole sermon going over 15 applicants to choose one to adopt. It was so heartwarming to watch them read and compare the children. At first my granddaughter choose this little boy because he wasn't cute and looked so sad. I thought she would go for a cute little toddler. After reading and talking it over with her friend she choose a five year old girl with the saddest face. She said she choose her because she was one of seven and probably needed this more than others. The money each month goes for all kinds of things. Grampy and I said we would pay the monthly donation for her. They have the child write letters and our granddaughter will get letters and pictures and she will write to her.
Life is returning to normal, whatever that is. Showings are slowing down but there has been interest. Nothing available to buy though. Homes are going into contract fast. Condos, one floor plans, prices all around our price. Of course, here if you live in the village and your home is 100 years old, it will sell right away. We live in a sub division in the country and have a well and septic. Our house was built in the 60's. Buyers want everything brand new for any price range that they are in. We are starting to question, why we are selling. We want smaller but we don't want to just "settle." We are discouraged as soon it will be two months without an offer. We will receive great feedback and interest and then reviews that bring you to tears.
Yesterday one of my good friends that moved to South Carolina was back for a couple of days for a funeral. She had little time to visit. She drove from her hotel 40 minutes away just to have coffee for less than a hour with me. Wasn't that sweet.
They're doing construction all over our little. Right next to the coffee shop they had the sidewalk torn out (gas line, I think) and they were getting ready to pour concrete. There was a plank to cross. It was about 4 feet. I walked up and said to the construction guy, "Do you want me to jump across or walk the plank." He was really serious and said yes, you can cross. Then on the other side about 5 of his co-workers said they wanted to see me jump. As I walked away, one of them was telling the others that the other day a lady, that was younger....... I didn't here the rest but thought that was funny. When we left the coffee shop we had to walk in the street around the trucks in the road. Today you probably won't be able to even see where they were working.
So today is going to be a good day, the sun is shining, and I am going to chase away the blues.
