Looking back Sunday - Happy Blogoversary to Me!

May 7, 2006 - my first blog -

May 7, 2011 - my 663rd blog -

Wow, where has the time gone??

I took this picture of this peony on 5/7/2006 - it has been so cold and rainy this year, this peony hasn't even thought about blooming yet...

Looking back, it was also the weekend of our church's plant sale. (these pictures are from that weekend - a nice sunny day)

Today was this year's plant sale - We previously had it at one of our member's home - she had a nice BIG garage for us to sit in - chilly but DRY-but, all good things must come to an end - she sold that house, so we moved our sale to our church premises in Blaine - No big garage p in fact, no outside covered area at all.

Well, this year, not so much on the sun, in fact, it was raining like a son of a gun when I got up - this morning, and all the way to Blaine, it was pouring so hard the windshield wipers were on double time.

Oh, man, I thought, I sure hope the put up a "canopy" to sit under... (I take the money)

When I got there, no canopy, but also, no rain. By the time The Shepherd got my chair out of my car, the rain had miraculously stopped - (the power of prayer??) and it did not rain the entire 4 hours of our sale - in fact, when I left the church, it was actually a little bit sunny.

We didn't do as well this year as before - we had built up a "clientele" over at Vickie's house - people who knew to look for the sale - so now we are starting over again - and, it has been so rainy and cold, I think that people just aren't thinking of gardening yet.

Oh, I suppose I shouldn't complain - my home is warm and dry - I can still (barely) afford to put gasoline in my car so I can drive the 25 miles to Blaine to get to our church, and the nearest tornado - well, we have never had a tornado in our area -

So, on this my 663rd blog, I say thank you to all my loyal readers - I know you are out there, even if you don't leave any comments. (hint, hint)

Oh, and Happy Mother's Day to all you moms out there.

Happy Mother day Tina. I won't be able to get up to BSG this year. Was looking forward to meeting you in person. Maybe next year.

Happy Blogoversary Tina! It has been really fun reading your posts from the beginning. I can't believe it has been that long though.

Hint taken! LOL. Of course, lately I'm so far behind on blog visiting and reading it isn't funny.

I wish we had a local plant sale like that around here. Changing locations is always a setback, and you're right about the weather not helping. Hopefully next year it will be a smashing hit.
