The Verdant Green of Spring

As I was driving home from work today, I suddenly realized it was Thursday and I was off work at a decent time!  It was about 4:40 and I was about one mile from getting off the freeway when I realized that Real Deals was open today.  I quickly called to see what time they closed and found out they close at 5 on Thursdays.  I was bummed.  I was still about 10 minutes away.  What fun is it to rush into Real Deals and only have 10 minutes to shop browse?  Well, the nice lady said to come on by anyway, so I did.  Found out that Amy, the store owner, finally has a buyer for the store and that they are going to move it to our town!  I AM SO EXCITED!  Oh my, I can hardly breathe.  It will be so hard not to go by there every Thursday and Saturday!  It will be so hard not to buy something every time I go in.  And, oh my, those ladies are going to make a TON of money out here!  I wonder where it will be.  There are lots of good places.  Oh goodness, my heart is going pitter-pat-hoppity-skippity-jump all over the place just thinking about it! 

ANYHOW.....they had sold a LOT of the remaining inventory so I didn't find anything I HAD to have so I was, indeed, quickly on my way.  I began driving home and noticed the extraordinary amount of green all around.  It's one of my most favorite times of the year - when spring has sprung and life is coming back into the grass and trees and weeds.  Soon it will be horribly hot and these weeds will be brown and gross.  But, for now, they look like normal plants giving us oxygen and making us happy.  Oh, how I love living out here in the "country"!
A while back, someone asked me where I got my cute little stick family at the top left of my blog. I seriously could not remember! But, today as I was catching up on some of my favorite blogs, I came across the site! So, here it is...

Enjoy making your own stick family!
