The Green Thumb Club & Giveaway Winner

Yesterday was just an AWESOME day.

The kids joined the library's garden club and were allowed to plant flowers and veggies where ever they wanted...they were tickled pink.

And I think that Guy's picture is going to be in the newspaper.  I've gotta check.

After that, a friend of ours gave us a ton of free plants.
I transplanted them into our yard, which took most of the afternoon.

What a huge blessings for us.  I'm very grateful.

My favorite is the elephant ear hostas, which are the blue-ish broadleaved plants.

I love to plant things.
I love to garden.
I love to sweat (which I did most of the day yesterday).

And that is why I am dedicating this post to the Happiness Project.
(Just follow the link below to jump on the bandwagon.)


Now to announce the winner of the Lego Necklace Giveaway:

Sorry about the randomness of this post.  Summer is crazy busy with outside things calling my attention.
So much going on. So little time to tell you about all of it!
