WOW! thanks for all of the bike love! I can't believe how many comments I received about my sweet new ride! also many thanks for not thinking I'm TOO dorky!
(you didn't see me in my helmet however!)
Oh well, I'm seriously just trying in my own simple little way to be green. curbing my car for at least 2 days a week if I can, riding my bike to the shop.
it's a tiny little commute (15 minutes), but I figure every little bit helps!
Every where you turn they talk about "living Green", and being healthier...I spent the past few days working in the yard trying to weed out my garden beds, another way i was surrounded by the "green"
well, really it was yellow, because unfortunately it's dandelion season, we bagged up about 11 sacs full of weeds.
Even you know who was eager to poke her nose in and help.
she was busy sniffing everything, including that cute little mound of green moss I have growing.
in case you can't figure out what on earth that picture is, it's pearl's head, (in extreme close up.)
here's a diagram.
Aren't I helpful?
So as you can see Everyone was enjoying the sunny weather!
It's so exciting to see all of the perennials doing their jobs and poking their heads out seeking out the warm sun. the yard is starting to green up and we are spending more and more time outdoors.
Unfortunately the weather is slated to take a turn for the worse...back to colder weather in the next few days.
SO in response to that bad news I bought some more little green plants from the greenhouse and have a new batch of baby tears down at the shop,
along with some sweet little geraniums and a few tiny pansies.
So even though it's cold and yucky outside we can surround ourselves with lovely little green growing things and know in our hearts warm weather will be back soon!
We also have some great new metal pieces in the store,
these beautiful Bluish-green candelabras that make me SO happy! I absolutely LOVE their color and their
Now with all of this talk about green I had to laugh a what I actually had for lunch today.
I didn't plan on eating all green stuff, it just kind of happened that way.
Cream of spinach soup, veggie crisps, "green casserole" from Arbor Farms market, (DELICIOUS!) and a nice protein shake that is supposed to be Vanilla flavored, but is actually mint green in color. hmmm.
do have have green on my mind or what?
oh well, green is GOOD for you! :)
So for the rest of this week I am going to continue to celebrate the green and offer you some ways to SAVE some green!
we will be open late this Friday Night (MAY 2nd)
for Midnight madness.
You can save 15% off of ONE item in the shop this weekend (may 2nd and 3rd ONLY) this excludes my art work sorry.
also if you spend $50 or more you will receive a little Gift! YAY!
I will also be offering some little sweets and coffee.
now I will be off for the rest of the week working on some other projects that I will share with you soon.
I will be back to work On Thursday (riding my bike of course) I am happy to report that I actually made it to work successfully on Friday.... (my maiden voyage)....packed to the brim with all of my office gear and Pearl of course.
THAT was a bit of a challenge. in the future I will be leaving all of my work at the shop and only riding with dog in tow.
I should probably be doing that in the first place ....leaving my work AT WORK.
but when you run a business it's kind of hard to do that.
Now lately I have been having some thought shifts about what I am really doing with my life, and the store so
This summer I will be spending more time with the little people in my life.
Life goes by WAY too fast.
My little Fiona just learned to ride HER bike this week without training wheels, with ONE push, I'm not kidding, ONE quick release of the hand and she was gone! never once looking back she was off and riding!
I wish I had that kind of spirit!
She also lost 2 teeth this weekend. her very first!
(NO, it wasn't from a bike crash)
She'll be starting Kindergarten this Fall too.
Time is indeed flying by, so with that being said I am going to pull her from her pre-school this summer and actually be a mom full-time with my kids.
(Hopefully you won't be reading about me in the paper, "mom strangles children")
Now I will still be at the shop on Thursday, Friday and Saturday but the other days I will be with my kids.
we re-joined our little country club and will be spending time at the pool with swim lessons , swim team and baseball.
So needless to say I am going to have to be ULTRA creative and disciplined with my time to keep things running smoothly at the shop.
I may not be as prolific as I'd like to be, but I am also super motivated to get as much done before school lets out to compensate for that! I hope you understand.
life only comes at you once, So I am doing what my heart is telling me to do.
So on that Note,
I am off to pick up Jackson from the green soccer fields and look forward to chatting with you all soon!
thanks for checking in!
