I tried uploading some new pics of my gardening efforts with my daughter's camera and my new laptop......um, I need technical support. Not only did ALL THE RAIN threaten to wash away my newly laid mulch and threaten to drown my newly placed baby begonias, but now my techno skillz are showing themselves to be insufficient!!! imagine that......

I've been catching up with all my blogger friends and it seems everyone has projects going on, many of them having to do with weeds and mulch! Hello, spring! So I'll be doing a post tomorrow, perhaps, about some basic gardening things......like how to choose which flowers to go where, how many, etc. I'm timely if nothing else makes me relevant! LOL.

Today I am spending time with a friend who is battling cancer. She is taking some radiation treatments downtown, so I will drive her down there, hoping all the WATER has cleared by now, and hoping that the gray skies don't dump more before we return. There are so many people in the Houston area with water in their homes, roads totally flooded out, etc. After her treatment, she and I plan a little stop at my fav....Hobby Lobby. She asked me to help her decorate the tops of her kitchen cabinets.......so that will be fun.

I'll be back with the results! Ya'll have a wonderful Wednesday!

Suzanne, I've been hearing about all the rain in the Houston area. I hope everything is ok. Enjoy your day with your friend. I'm sure a day out will be just the perfect medicine.

You are such a great friend! I know she appreciates your support! Tell Hobby Lobby "Hello" for me. I haven't been in awhile (:

What a blessing you must be to your friend who's going through a hard time...I hate cancer! I've had a lot of it in my family (my mom and brother died from it; my dad had it, too, as did my surviving other brother). I wish her well with her treatments and her recovery! Have fun on your shopping spree!

My parents said they have been getting drenched around the Hobby Airport area but thankfully, nothing was getting into the homes around their area.

Hopefully you and your friend can have a great day. May you bring some sunshine into your friends life at this difficult time.♥

I bet your friend is grateful to have the company! :) I'd love to hear what you guys do with the tops of those cabinets! :) Maybe you can even do pictures when you get the hang of the new camera. ;)

Your blog is wonderful and so are you!

What a kind and thoughtful person you are to help your friend out.
So many cancers in my family as well. I can relate.
