oh the joy...

...of having a garden.
Tonight I am out celebrating friends' birthdays, and I was able to pick and arrange bunches of flowers for them in pretty wrapping paper. This makes me so happy.
And last night I did something crazy but very very exciting.
A prize to the person who guesses correctly what mad but wonderful thing I have done.
Back tomorrow with a card!!!
Hooray.
P.S.  SCHOOL'S OUT FOR SUMMER!!!!!!

Did you take sudden crazy ride out of town and drove wherever the road took you?
