Daybook March 11, 2012


Outside My Window

I can see my new hot pink and lime green coleus.

On a quick trip to Montgomery this past week to deliver birthday

gifts to our grandsons,

I spotted these at the Willis Kroger.

I almost swooned.
(Dramatic I know. )

I know hot pink and lime green may not have been on

God’s original

botanical color wheel,

but I am so glad

these colors now are.

I should have bought them ALL.


Sunday lunch after church:  Pollo Palenque

grilled chicken

steamed broccoli, zucchini, and carrots

and avocado salsa


For Sunday Supper?

My husband’s roast

with squash, potatoes, carrots, and onions.



(hot pink geraniums)


I Am Thinking

I need to re-read Hunger Games.

The movie premieres March 23rd.

I read the trilogy over a year ago.

A year ago to me,

at this point in life,

should be measured in dog years.

That was a long time ago,

that feels like yesterday.

Go figure.


I  Am Thankful For…  the independence that my three daughters possess.

Oh, I hover.

I offer; I  even suggest.

I am practicing my new response.

”You’re so smart. You’ll figure it out.”

I hope I get a chance to use that! 


I am creating….   

my spring wardrobe by shopping in my own closet

and adding some new white linen pieces.

I am reading….

my new Traditional Home magazine.

Yes, I admit it.

I love traditional design with a kick. 

Second true confession:

although I have painted things white for a gazillion years, I also love color.

I am going… to go outside now and do some fertilizing.

I am wearing… yard clothes… .

Independent daughters - now there's a gift, a joy, something to be proud of!
I love Traditional Home and take it from the library, unless I'm travelling, in which case I treat myself to a copy.

I love coleus! They are such a pretty plant. I hope to plant some in my front flower bed this Spring. I enjoyed reading all the things you were doing!!!

Wonderful post! I came by way of Pondside who recommended your blog.

This coleus is so pretty and bright! I love how easily a stem from one will root if placed in water.

I have a very independent daughter, and it is a blessing!

I so enjoyed your day book. If I had one word to describe my daughter it would be independent. We must have done a good job with our girls, I can feel the pride in your words. Have a good week Laura.

Love that coleus. So pretty. They used to grow wild around our property in Florida.

Love you lunch menu..and your dinner menu. I didn't cook today- unusual for me.

Isn't it wonderful to see your daughters independent but yet still know they need you on some level. xo Diana

Everyone is teasing me with spring plant photos. Still brown and cold here in the North. Then you tease even more listing roast and other yummies.
