up to my knees in mulch, but oh so thankful......

I've been so busy at the SI Casa, cleaning out flowerbeds and getting mulch in them......and now I'm working on getting some flowers in rained cats and dogs last night, so as long as the rain didn't wash all my mulch away, I'll be outside this morning putting in the flowers......some begonias, some white impatiens, some sage, and some moss rose. As the Mister said, it's beginning to look like someone lives here again! Somebody actually cares and such. This one's for you, honey!
Oh, and look at the sweet award Lisa from Hospitable Pursuits gave me! She's a real sweetie and has a precious heart. I tried to comment on her blog to leave a not of thanks, but for some reason, I couldn't post a comment. I'll try again later, but Lisa, please know that I am thankful for such an award. And I'm supposed to nominate ten of my fav. blogs.....well, considering that I have several more than ten on my own bloglist, that can't be hard! Or it could because ya'll are all my favorite. But I will attempt to name some of the lesser known blogs so that ya'll can find out some other great blogs that I enjoy!
Donna from Designs on 47th Street ( a Southern belle up north!)
Paula from Sweet Pea (cutie pie athlete)
Amanda from Serenity Now (great writer!)
Cathy from CathysOut JunkinAgain (beautiful ideas!)
Robin from AlabamaSlacker Mom (she's out being racey????)
Bella from Southern Somedays ( a true southern belle!)
Renee from Add More Chocolate (my IRL friend, who is oh so smart!)
Melinda from Tales from an Empty Nest ( a real sweetheart I am thankful to know)
Darlene from Darlene's Days (a girl on the go, with a good blog!)
Jill from Controlling My Chaos (sarcastic wit that keeps me rolling....)
Miz Designer from Domestic Designer (oh, so fancy home domestic engineer!)
New Day, New Season, because I'm old and can't remember her name but she is precious and you need to go on over and check her out!!!! :)

Now since you haven't anything else to do, go check these girls out, and tell them I sent you, and get to work on your nominations.....that's how the blog world rolls, and how we find out about all those great blogs that you may know about but I haven't yet found!!! Take care and I'll be back with pics of my mulch and flowers!!!


And OH MY!! I went over ten, but I love these blogs, and I can do what I want since it's my own blog, right??? I don't like to skimp...:)
to those of you who I couldn't comment on, I'll keep trying. It seems that Melinda's and Jill's blog won't let me leave a comment, so go on over and tell them I can't and to come by and grab the button, will you please???? Thanks ever so much!

Suzanne you're THE best blog buddy! I'm going right over to visit the blogs you nominated. I just re-posted the rules as they were given me but EVERYONE feel free to change it up to make it work for YOU! Have a great weekend!

Stacey said...

Hi Suzanne. Lots of mulching for me today too. I just put out 12 bags. I decided mulch in the flower beds is like my silver's the finishing touch.

Congratulations on your award. I do enjoy your blog and the sweet comments you always leave.

Robin said...

Thank you so much again!!!


Robin :o)

Lovely! Hubs and I put down fresh mulch a few weeks ago. It's so nice to have this behind us and doesn't it always look great when it's refreshed??!!

We have a few more weeks here in the north before I can put out the annuals. . . but our perennials are surely popping out of the grown.



Amanda @ Serenity Now said...

Well, it was an honor just to be nominated!!! :) Thanks for thinkin' of little ole me! I can't wait to think of 10 more people to nominate. :)

Domestic Designer said...

Thanks so much for the award! I am truly honored. You know I love your blog and the support you have given me! Thanks again and I will post about it soon! Have a great weekend!

Kasey said...

i'm on half an acre of total garden overload in the back....

Jeanneoli said...

I look forward to checking each of their sites out!

Sounds like you've been real busy in your garden. It's been raining here in Michigan for most of the day. This is the first year I've ever used Preen (over our new mulch) to try to prevent weeds. I'm hoping it works and wasn't too late! I'll go check out these blogs. Thanks for sharing them. By the way, congratulations!
Angie xoxo

Paula said...

Thanks for the award! Good luck with your mulching project. You can come to help me when you are finished with your yard!

Donna@designson47thstreet said...

Suzanne, you are such a precious friend. Thank you from the bottom of my little ole heart for this award. I truly appreciate being recognized!

I just love seeing the pictures of those babies. Cute as can be! You are such a blessing to that family and I know you feel blessed being a part of their lives too!

Darlene said...

Thanks so much Suzanne for giving me the award. I'll pick it up soon.♥

Renee said...

Aww...thank you! No one has ever given me a blog award before. I hope I can figure out how this works. I'm learning :-)


Controlling My Chaos said...

I'm glad you're getting some planting done. I bet you have the prettiest yard on the block, don't you?

So my blog comment box is acting snobby again? I'm going to have to fire it. I don't know what's up with that. You are very sweet to keep trying, but I might have to swat your hand for tagging me. I'm three days behind in my blog reader and I don't even want to talk about my e-mail. I'm a train wreck.
