Slogan for DZ

My New Slogan For DZ, originally uploaded by kzensius.

On my recent visit to the American History Museum in Washington DC, I came across this slogan coined by Julia Child's husband (Paul). DZ has now adopted this phrase...especially now that we are in full throttle with wedding preparations.

Wow! A miniature Mr. Shoe!

From the nose up

Now, the shape of his head and his mouth come from his mother.

And that cute dimply chin...I believe a relative in Mr. Shoe's family has one.

Here is little M checking out "his reflection":

2011 Easter

Guess what?
I didn't bring any of the bunny boxes down
Not one
Since we were going to be out of town
I thought I'd give the fluffy decor a rest

We flew home from DC Easter morning
And to our surprise
We were greeted with this lovely sight:

"Somebunny" climbed up into the garage attic
Pulled down the baskets
Filled them up
And set them out...
So glad that somebunny did not forget

Later in the afternoon
Our family gathered at my sister's house

And had a most delicious meal

A very lovely day indeed!

Those First Leaves in Spring

I do love the first leaves that come forth

On my roses in the spring

Oh so tender, and fresh, and perfect

Next come the fragrant blooms

Produce Bags

I picked up two packages of these at Target tonight:

Ten (10) reusable produce bags

I don't know about you

But I feel it is so wasteful to use those clear plastic bags

When I purchase fresh produce

I have been thinking of making some reusable bags myself

In fact, I have a friend and fellow blogger who made some

From old sheets...such a clever gal isn't she?

I can't wait to trot down to the Milk Pail market

And fill up my new little mesh bags

With yummy fruits and veggies

It feels so good to be green!

Back Drop

This past weekend

I planted over a hundred bulbs (mostly dahlias and glads)

And lots of sunflower seeds

Let's hope they grow

Also, with the help of my sister

We painted the backdrop for the photo booth

Prep for the wedding is moving right along.

Tip Toe Through The Tulips

Check out the tulips you will tip toe through
when you come to my house for a visit.

Today's Lunch

I am lucky to live within 5 minutes of my work...door to desk.

I go home for lunch most days

And today, I had "fresh" roasted red pepper crab bisque soup (from Safeway...very tasty I must say!), pita chips and a glass of milk

Heating my soup stirred up memories of walking home from elementary school for lunch every day (except hamburger Friday)

My mother would have a nice hot pot of Campbell's tomato soup and sometimes homemade scones waiting for us as we came through the door

We'd gobble it up..and then we'd scoot back to class

All energized for our afternoon lessons.

I had a wonderful childhood.

My Weekend

We had a most lovely weekend indeed
That is, compared to last weekend
Which was filled with buckets of rain
The sun shone so bright
Did not stay inside at all
Made multiple trips to the nursery
Including Home Depot which were selling their six packs for 99cents
I came home with this

Which is just a fraction of my plant purchases
I dug five holes with my handy dandy post hole digger
Four holes for the pergola I am building
With the help of my very talented man with a drill
And one hole to place the pole for my bird house
My back yard is coming right along
Nothing like a wedding to motivate you to get things done
