  • I did it!

    It’s the last day of NaBloPoMo and I have manged to post something for everyday this month. It was fun the last few days were the hardest because my job actually expected me to work for a change. Which limits my blogging time. I’m going to keep trying to post every weekday.

  • Bulb Project 2007 1 month

  • Lady Beetle

    I was doing some gardening when I cam across this little guy. My boyfriend was joking and telling me not to touch it that it might be some rare lethal beetle. But I was relieved to find out that these are called twice stabbed lady beetles and are totally harmless.

  • The Morning After

    Yesterday was a big success. I avoided the malls and shopping frenzy and stayed home today. The best part of the day after Thanksgiving is that you can have pumpkin pie with your morning coffee.
