Well, as many of you have written emails asking me if I am still alive and kicking? Here's the answer? Yes, I'm doing great, thanks for asking! Now that we're back from our little relaxing escapade, I can finally tell you where we were. We went to Hawaii, on Oahu Island once again. Out of 7 days we had the first 3 days of sun and ideal temperatures and the next 4 days we had constant rain. But since we live where it is always dry and rarely any rain to speak of outside of the Monsoon season, we were feeling good that our skin was enjoying the humidity for a short while. Soft and hydrated skin? Oh my! We were there to relax and the weather made sure we were there, doing just that.
So my friends, we are back! We have been so busy since we returned. I had to finish preparing for a class and now preparing 2 cards for next month's classes. Mid-month. So as soon as I find the time to share a card with you I will do so with great pleasure. Sorry it has been slow viewing new cards, but it will be a little slow since gardening season is starting way too soon this year. I have an Apricot tree that is about to burst into blooms in February, imagine that? Weeds are already out in full force so I say: "there we go again". It will be at least 1 hour every day, trimming rose branches, weeding,and preparing pots for flowers to purchase later in a few months.
My tulips and daffodils are almost 3 inches tall already, irises are also growing, some of my roses still have green leaves on them from the lack of intense freezing this Winter, it's all happening fast. Good thing the 2 koi ponds are still hibernating to at least end of March so is my bullfrog. My veggetable garden can wait a few months longer, any break, I will take, for the sake of time here. Oh and my asparagus are starting to grow and get greener. We just can't stop nature from doing its thing, can we LOL?
So this is what we have been up to lately. Although Hawaii is a gorgeous place to visit, we are always happy to come back home every time, so appreciative of our routine and comfortable bed too.
As soon as I have a card to publish, I will be here doing just that. In the meantime, I hope you are all doing well and thanks for your visit I'm happy you stopped by, thanks for your caring emails and comments.
