The silly stuff, sometimes it is what makes memories.
We were off to San Francisco for the weekend after some busy weeks, meaning, that there was no time to even wash the car! On this particular trip there would not be a campground, but a valet at the front of the hotel in Union Square. For our family, this is big stuff.
We pack, grab coffee, put in the new Gaga cd, and hit the drive-thru car wash!
This is when we start to get giggly. Waiting for the greeen light.
Gaga singing, us laughing, and the soap 'a spraying.
Probably because I am a teenage girl who spends the majority of her free time seeing movies, I get really excited when I see a trailer for a romantic comedy. This movie had promise- cute John Krasinski, some other hot guy, generally entertaining Kate Hudson, and personal favorite Ginnifer Goodwin, all wrapped up in a silly plot about best friends and the man they both love. But I was sadly disappointed. Friends have disagreed but I found the film unrealistic and frankly, depressing. Simple summary of the movie is this: Goody two shoes lawyer Rachel (Goodwin) is in love with her best friend Darcy's (Hudson) fiancée, with whom she went to law school with. She waits around for him to tell her she's his one true love, while lying to her best friend since childhood about having an affair with him. Is there not any other man in New York for you Rachel? You have to steal back your true love from your best friend? High point was Krasinski being adorable and sweet as always. Don't go see it. But in a few months, when you are at the video store in your sweatpants looking for a typical romantic comedy, by all means, rent it.
It was a very long drawn out winter...one that I cursed, one that was too wet to get into the soil, one that is adios! So much happy happens in spring--green hills, Easter celebration, and yep, the garden takes hold!The "Big Payoff" is what i like to call it! Ralph, the earth is laughing!
With all the to-do lists that are constant, it seems that the garden is never at the top, but I have realized it is oh-so-necessary for the soul. This is the first year that help needed to be called in! Between my husband and I, we managed to revive and nurture our garden. Here's a peek.....
the new rose that just arrived, creamy white with a chartreuse inside.
the queen of the garden
sweet sweet peas
I think this is a form of vibirnum
the last of the lilac and snowballs for the season
and let's not forget some of the wildlife taking refuge!
