I'm back!

I haven't been on here since Wednesday and it seems like a really long time! I am feeling a little better but still have issues with breathing really well. The beautiful weather (even though now it is a little cloudy) should help my recovery! I have the windows open in the house to "air" it out. John is off to work and I'm just planning on resting by reading today. I did venture out into the courtyard between our house and the garage and I can't believe how much the warm weather and rain brought the plants out of hibernation! The roses have leaves on them, the chives grew another 2.5 inches, the camellia is blooming like crazy, the mint is grow quickly, the lemon balm is 3 inches higher, etc., etc. I think Spring has arrived in Charlotte! Since I have been under the weather I had a little more time to browse the internet for low-cost decorating ideas. Here are a two ideas I found and really liked.


What a simple idea but great for a porch, courtyard or just about anywhere in your yard!



Green is my favorite color-green of any shade so this really appealed to me. You could have this tray with any dishes on your ottoman, table, picnic table or side table.

Sometimes the simplest things give the eye the most appeal! Well I'm off to read and rest-don't want a relapse! Enjoy the weekend!

The tulips are just beginning to break through the ground and today was beautiful. I had my windows open, too. Enjoy your book, and keep feeling better!

Glad to know that you're feeling better. I had a few windows open today too. Nothing like fresh air in the house after a long winter.

Hope you enjoyed your day of reading and relaxing.

Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
Jenny and Kevin at their wedding 8/30/08. The wedding was at our home and turned out wonderful! Everyone had such a good time!
