I'm Back!!

 
Sometimes we can be given a delightful gift in very unexpected places!
For instance, the shopping cart at the grocery store!
No kidding!
 
I decided to go in the garden center of Walmart and not knowing if there would be any carts by that door, I headed for the nearest outside cart corral. (I couldn't think of anything else to call those places were you leave your cart outside.)  I grabbed the handle of the cart, pulled it out and stopped in my tracks. There on the seat was this pretty flower. SMILE!!  Oh yes, a big smile with a little laugh out loud.  It wasn't perfect, it  was bruised and broken, but to me it was delightful!  In all my years of grocery shopping and there have been many, I've never found a flower in the cart and I've probably never gone in the front door with that big of a smile!
 
I'm finally back after ten long days of very limited Internet time. I wish I could say I used all that time away from the computer wisely, but I didn't! I did manage to get a little extra cleaning done, stayed outside more, and spent several days with my family. It was party time; our youngest grandson turned one!

 
I found myself missing my lap top. I'm a little addicted to it, so I learned to play Hearts on the computer. It is next to impossible to win a game of Hearts against three computer PEOPLE!!  I did win once, but only once! 
 
I also missed each of you!  I wondered what you were doing...did you get any more snow...did your favorite team win...has spring sprung in your area? I'm looking forward to doing a little catch-up this week. I wish I could read all of your past posts, but I'd be out of gigabytes again!
 
So glad to be back!
So glad to hear from you!

  1. YAYAYAY! Cathy's back! So glad you're back in business. Yes, we got a bit of snow yesterday morning after temps in the 70's over the weekend and a freeze last night. Right now my tulips and daffodils don't look so good but the baby dogwood blooms might be okay. Fortunately, it's warming up quickly, so I hope all will be well. That is the coolest story about the smile flower! How perfectly lovely. And I'm smiling because you're baaaack!

  4. A break from the computer can certainly be revitalizing although I know I'm always missing it when I'm away too. Lovely flower find and there's nothing more special than a sweet grandchild's birthday!

  5. Awe, having a grand baby turn one is just the most fun (mine are all in mid teens and 20s now). He is so cute! Your flower is so pretty, and what a surprise in a cart, especially a yellow one, and it made you smile!

  7. So happy your back! I have missed you. Hard to believe that little guy is one already, seems like he was just born. We got a couple of inches of snow Tuesday morning. Not nice. Thankfully it is all gone again. You need to find a cozy spot in town with wifi and go there with your laptop to read and enjoy some refreshments.
