New Phone

I finally bit the bullet and bought a new cell phone. I hung on to my iPhone 3G for as long as I could, but the slow Internet connection and inability to download some of the newer apps frustrated me to no end. I also wanted to get my money's worth since I lost my first 3G due to my own stupidity and had to buy a new phone practically right after I bought the first one! Guess it was a sort of self-inflicted punishment on my part for being so careless.
I also switched cell phone carriers in the hopes that this one will work up at our cottage and I can get rid of my landline there. Keep your fingers crossed because that would be a huge savings for me.
I couldn't resist this adorable Cath Kidson cell phone cover to go with my new purchase, so I'm all set!

Trip to Seattle

I'm planning a brief trip to Seattle later this summer to attend my nephew's wedding. I've never been there before and wondered if any of you have. If you know of something that I should not miss while I am there please let me know by leaving a comment below. Thanks!

Lily of the Valley

When I was out working in my garden yesterday I noticed that my Lily of the Valley plants finally had enough blooms on them to be able to pick some to put in a vase. Everyone says they spread like wildfire, but for some reason where I planted them it has been very slow growing. But this year they finally seemed to take off. I just love those sweet little white bells dangling on the stems.

Friday Fill-Ins

And here we go...
1. I know I shouldn't have eaten that Snickers sundae, but I did.

2. I'd like to create some art today if at all possible.

3. This weather has been great for working in the garden.

4. Washing windows on a sunny day creates a streaky problem. 

5. I'm really happy I have such good friends.

6. They keep saying "I don't recall" or something to that effect.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to walking and talking with Marianne, tomorrow my plans include cleaning my house and Sunday, I'm going to my daughter's baby shower.

Freshly Picked Lilacs

One of my favorite flowers are lilacs. These are from one of the lilac bushes in my backyard. I love the gorgeous color, the heavenly scent and the delicate flower-clusters on every branch. Spring is my favorite time in the garden. It's when all the surprises that my DH planted over the years burst forth and show themselves. It's funny how every year the same plants bloom and yet I get so excited by them as if I were seeing them for the first time. I consider these as little gifts from my husband that keep on giving year after year.

Making Journals

I made this journal out of an old book. The cover wasn't very attractive, so I altered it with a stencil, paint, and some glaze. I like how it turned out and look forward to filling it up with my thoughts and sketches.
