The Irises Are Starting to Bloom

I've been so busy that I missed taking pictures of the
  early spring.  Now, how I enjoy the irises!  Take a 
walk with me in the garden and 
let's see what is blooming today!

And then I found a fellow lover of flowers ......

How beautiful!

Thank you for walking with me! Hope you have a great weekend!

Kitchen Rewards

I made a goal during the month of February to clean 
every inch of my kitchen and my pantry.  I work full
time in another city so the only time I can clean (love)
my kitchen is on weekends.  I worked really hard but I
didn't finish before the end of February.  I had set up a 
reward for myself anyway.  I wanted to make a change 
in the den/gathering room off the kitchen.  Nothing
drastic...just a little more color.

I bought some new curtains (valances), a new table 
cloth, and matching cushions on the chairs.  Altogether
I spent $48.  Wow! What an improvement!



The walls are a coral/pink color with tiny blue flower
wall paper.  I really LOVE the color! It was in the house 
when we bought it.

 I love the new look...but something is bothering me
about the whole deal.  I don't know why I had to set 
myself up to EARN this makeover as a REWARD for 
cleaning every inch of the kitchen.  And I had the $48 at
the beginning of the month of February.  I don't know 
why I had to put it away in a paper envelope to give to
myself as a REWARD for the kitchen clean.  Why do 
women do this?  Why do we play games with our self?

I LOVE the makeover and it make's me smile. I guess 
that's all that matters in the long run "-) 

Thank you for visiting today!
