Roselady over at Diapeepees started Good Fridays...
a day to reflect on the 'good' of the week, no D allowed!
Пятница хороша! Pyatnitsa horosha!...Friday is good!
Russian this week...with phonetic spelling! :)
1. VBS, baby!! Not only did the girls have a fabulous time this week at VBS, it gave me almost three hours of 'alone' time each morning! I cleaned, had a date with Ubergeek, napped, organized clothes, and took an uninterrupted shower. It was fabulous!!
2. The Pot is Fixed! Remember when Amy and I had our meet up in Denali and I brought her a cute flowerpot that was decorated with pods? And then we brought it home so I could ship it to her instead of them having to lug it around for the rest of their trip? And when we got home and Ubergeek opened the back of the car (read large SUV! ;)) and it fell out and shattered?
WELL, I finally had the chance to get another pot, paint it, and get it decorated!
Now, I just have to get it in the box and sent on its way....promise it will be this weekend, Amy!! ;)
3. Weeds, the pretty kind! So, there's a weed in Alaska that we call Fireweed (it's found other places, too, but they call it other things) because it's one of the first things to grow after forest fires. You can find them all over the place around town and it's just plain beautiful. Its blooms signal the beginning of summer, summer sticks around until the blooms reach the top, and when it goes to seed and looks like it's been flocked with snow, it signals the end of summer...at least that's the way story goes around here! :)
I've wanted some at our house since we moved in 10 years ago. Even to the point that we tried, unsuccessfully, to transplant some from Ubergeek's parents' house. So, when I noticed some sprouting in my barrel of irises in the front yard, I nearly jumped for joy!! There are lots of little ones getting ready to bloom, but this guy is going strong.
Oh, and if you haven't checked out
Naturally Sweet's Sugar Bolus you should! :)
Go on, go already...well, if you want to
comment first, fine, go after that! ;)
