Hi, Pixie Pals! I am still here, but I'm taking a little break from blogging. The reason for my break is I've been on the road traveling for the past couple of weeks, and time and energy has prevented me from blogging. But I have a lot to share with all of you, so I'll be back online Monday. I just need to get cracking on processing all the photographs I took. There are thousands of them!
But a little teaser of what's to come...
I actually won something cool...
I did a major road trip with the Pixie Household...
I have another major road trip coming sooner rather than later...
I've stepped into becoming more technically current...
The Pixie Household hit the garden center over the weekend. We've been working furiously to get the garden in shape before we hit the road for Wisconsin, so we thought a trip to the garden center was called for - just to pick up a few bits of color to plant around our patio area.
I have to say, I love the color of lilies. I love the color of these lilies a lot. But, we already have lilies growing, so I skipped this purchase. However, I couldn't resist snapping a few photographs.
I fell in love with this baby many years ago, bought one, brought it home, and planted it. Within a couple of years, the blasted thing had taken over the garden. We're still fighting it. It has now popped up in our yard, it's growing through the tiles on our patio, and it is desperately trying to take over. I hate it.
I loved these orange lilies. They were one of the fixture of my childhood - bursting from the corner of the little white cottage I grew up in.
Salvia is a regular fixture in our garden. This year is no different.
Columbine is another fixture. It's actually our family flower, for hundreds of years, so we always make sure to have plenty of these delicate beauties adding a little color to our little piece of summer.
Then Naughty Pixie took over the shopping cart. The herbs dominated, and when we got back home to do the planting - it felt like all I was planting were herbs. An example... This curled parsley.
More parsley - only this time it is Italian Parsley...
And we cannot forget the pot full of thyme. There are more herbs (rosemary and chives to name a few), but this blog posting would go on for hours if I posted it all.
One thing is certain, our garden this year will be pretty, smelly, and full of good stuff for Naughty Pixie to cook with... I believe my work is done (for now).
It's Monday! I'm swamped with activities this week. This Pixie Household is hitting the road on Friday for a road trip to Wisconsin (for work - not pleasure), so I'm scrambling to get everything done before Friday arrives. But today is Monday, so it means it is Friend Makin'

A Little About Me
Have you ever experienced love at first sight? No. I don't believe in love at first sight. Quite frankly, I don't believe in romantic love. I believe it is all biology - not romantic notions.
What channel is your TV on most? It's a toss up among HGTV, the Food Network, CBS, and the History Channel.
Share one quality that you’re proud to have. I'm very logical but while most logical thinkers stick to a linear approach to process, I'm more global.
Describe your idea of a great evening. It's snowing outside, the fireplace is roaring, I have a stack of videos, a fuzzy blanket, plenty of nosh, and nothing on my "to do" list. *Sigh* If only!
If your friends were asked to describe you in three words, which
words would they choose?Intelligent, funny, and tall.
What is your favorite holiday? Halloween!
If you could change one thing that would make your life easier
instantly, what would it be? I won the Powerball jackpot.
What is one healthy food that you crave? Bananas.
Do you wear socks when you sleep? I never, ever wear socks. They make me feel claustrophobic.
Share at least three things for which you are thankful. I'm thankful for the Pixie Household, my business growing, and how working from home offers me (and the Pixie Household) such great flexibility.
