I bought the purple and green flowers and stuck them in the potting soil in the plant I have at school. The students who take medicine at lunch always water my plants. They thought the flowers grew over the weekend! Sometimes I love my job!

Cindy and I were talking about the bulbs that we planted last fall. I think I put about 500 of them in the ground. I checked tonight to see if any of them had started coming up, because Cindy said she had seen some of hers sprouting. Sure enough, this is the beginning of some tulips out front! I planted the right side down!
Today is Jim's 59th birthday. We went to the Butterfly House and ate lunch with Pat and Jill at the Brick House this afternoon, in St Louis. We got home and picked up Coco at the kennel. We went to Kouri's for dinner. Jim had corned beef and cabbage. Today is John and Stacie's 6th Wedding Anniversary, too!
We drove to St Louis for a Blues hockey game this afternoon. We met Jen and Amy after the game and drove them to their car. Jimmy John's was giving out 3 inch sandwiches as we left the arena. They had so many left, they shoved a box of sandwiches through the window of my car. The girls took a bunch of them, we ate a few and left the rest at the front desk of our hotel. It was a great night as the Blues won in overtime!
This photo has lived on the corner of my desk at work for MANY years. We had this taken at Six Flags when the kids were in maybe 1st and 3rd grade. I have an 8 x 10 in a frame in our family room, too, but it is the traditional sepia tone. This was the proof and the photographer gave it to me because he scratched it (see the white spots).
The "Candy Man" showed up today and brought samples of all the bags that are in the new fund raising brochure. Jay had shown us the brochure and said he was going to order some bags for us to see. We were like kids in a candy store! We love bags. He let us choose one to keep. Cindy and I are holding ours and the rest of the shapes, patterns and sizes of bags are in front of us! Thanks, Candy Man!
My friend, Debbie, who lives in Nebraska, recently started selling Origami Owl Jewelry. I ordered my necklace on line through my friend Amy's party. I received my package today and I love it! I can't wait to get some other charms to add to my necklace. I bought the "changed" tag for two reasons. First, it is a Rascal Flatts promotion and second because I have "changed for the better" in my life. Losing 80 pounds and setting a routine of exercise daily.
