Moving On Up

I have made a huge decision in my blogging career and now have my very own website.

It is ....

How exciting is that?  Don't answer that question here - leave a comment at my new place.

Soon, or as soon as my in-house computer expert can assist me, my archives from BlogSpot will be moved over to their new home.

See ya there~

Have the BEST day ever!

Speaking Of ...

When Roxy and I went outside this morning about 5am, it was just starting to rain.  We did our business, snuggled back into bed and listened to the rain and a bit of thunder.  Even though it was 60° when we got up for good about 7am, it was a cold 60° - cloudy and with a breeze.  However, neither one of us were detered from enjoying our morning coffee on the deck with the hummingbirds and the Cardinal Family.

You know the Itsy Bitsy Spider song - where the sun comes out and dries up all the rain?  That is what we have now.  The sun is peaking through the clouds, the birds are singing and the breeze is gone.

I now will have the Itsy Bitsy Spider song stuck in my head all morning, maybe the rest of the day.

Gardening 101

Just off our back deck and up against the garage, we had an eyesore of a garden spot that I didn't know what to do with.  My first plan was to just take the planting area out all together, rake it smooth and fill in with rock.  

Somewhere along the line two thoughts made a connection in my brain:

1) I want a herb garden.

B) I want to do something with this eyesore of a garden spot.

I have had two things come in to my life this week that didn't take me too long to get obsessed with.  So much so that I have made a chicken dish for dinner two nights in a row.  Unheard of for me, as I evenly distribute the chicken, beef, pork and Cowboys (*) throughout my two week menu plan.

With all the hoopla over the recent release of the movie, The Hunger Games, I decided to check the book out of the Amazon Prime lending library.  I have had it for - dare I say - a couple of weeks,  and I finally broke down and decided to start reading it Monday.  With no due dates to contend with, I guess I was hoarding it just in case I blew through reading the other 500+ books that I had on my Kindle.  Lord knows, I always gotta have one book in reserve for emergency situations.
