It's The Little Things

Today I went to Produce Junction - a store where you basically by fresh produce in bulk for a really good price. For under $15 I came home with a head of cauliflower, a dozen green peppers, three gala apples, a pack of sliced mushrooms, a pint of grape tomatoes, three avocados, 2 lbs of broccoli crowns, and three packs of carrots. BUT, the most exciting purchases were the two hydrangea bushes I bought, each for $7.50. I've shown my existing planted hydrangea recently on my blog and every year it just blesses me with such colorful blooms. That hydrangea was purchased at Produce Junction so I figured I'd add to my "collection" with today's purchase. You really can't go wrong at that price.

I had fully intended to start painting my office today but when I pulled out the can of paint my hubby purchased at Home Depot, it wasn't the right wall paint. So, I did a bit of knitting instead.

I had a good day - I'm easy to please. For me it truly is the little things that make me happy...Throw some peanut M&Ms into the mix, and I'm truly over the edge with excitement!!

Love and Prayers,

Yes, peanut M&Ms, I believe, were created on the eight day - after God's day of rest... LOL. They are the best thing since sliced bread in my opinion.

I will take some before/after photos as soon as I get at least the closet painted because the stuff I had stored in there is all over my office at this point. I will then photo the office with the sponge painting I did about 12 years ago and am now tired of.

Janis, the knitting project will be a lap blanket.

Looks like you have some spring fever going on, too. I can't wait to start planting some flowers.

Peanut M&Ms sound like exactly what I need right now.
