Purple ladies

About a month ago, my cleaning lady surprised me by planting purple petunias in my backyard. This is the first time I've ever had anything growing back there except weeds!

I can't tell you how much difference it's made to walk through and see these flowers, whom I call my Purple Ladies, each time I come and go from the carport to the house. 

Today, nearly four years after purchasing my house, I sat outside for the first time, just because!  :)

Positive messages

I been meaning to post this for a long time. The last time I had to order jeans (yes, a bigger size) I ordered my typical Lee jeans. I have always worn their jeans, and I also wear their twill pants to work. They just fit me. You know what will help a girl's low self esteem about getting a bigger pair of jeans? These messages on the inside, where only she can see. Boy, is it powerful! I may be ordering more jeans soon, (this time in a smaller size), and I need to tell them how much these affirming words have really made a difference. For all the bad retailer stories we hear out there, and they are well-founded, this one makes up for it, at least in my tiny corner of the planet. :)
