Quote of the Week

As I think about the victims of the stabbing at the synagogue and the church shooting, I found this Good Morning Quote, don't know who said it, but it's something more people need to practice.

"Keep love in your heart. A life without it is like a sunless garden when the flowers are dead."

Ready for a Paint Project

Picked up some Apple Barrel, acrylic paint the other day for $.50 each at Wal-Mart for my little rock project. My idea is to paint some rocks in my yard/garden to bring a bit more color to my environment, I really wanted some bright colors, but when I got to the store I became a little indecisive---I didn't know if I wanted bright pastel colors or just some colors that would compliment the house and make the yard---POP!
So my daughters thought I should go with the latter, since it would also work with a fall or winter look,and I could save the brighter colors for a spring/summer look.
I think I can rock with this setup, what do you think? Should I go ahead and add the pastels or should I stick with fall/winter idea?

Back from my Break

Sorry for my absence, I've been away doing some mom/band parent duties. Went out of town to New Orleans for the Bayou Classic, my daughter and her band mates marched in the parade(it's my daughter's senior year, so I'm trying to capture a lot of moments, too). When we got back home we had to prepare for her last hair show of her high school career, and she also had a musical concert with the Atlanta Music Project to prepare and Master classes to attend and not to mention two other parades to prepare for in our community: a lantern/Christmas parade in our local community and the Children's Healthcare of Atlanta Parade. So....I really haven't had time to post anything----not even my quote of the week, my phone has been going off with messages and reminders and I've just been trying to get the basics done in our household, now that things have settled down a bit, I can get back on my gardening grind. So, let's go!
