It's a Spring Thing

[1] The new shipment of flowers have arrived at the local hardware store.

[2] Raggedy Ann, waiting to be loved at a nearby flea market. $12

[3] It's Easter time at the local Target! Stock up on Marshmallow Peeps now! On sale for just 88¢ at your nearest Kroger! 50¢ at your nearest Tom Thumb!

[4] The giant tub of Cokes hanging over the soft drink section at Albertson's.

[5] My daffodils. Pretty.

[6] 25¢ gets you a ride on day-glo gator or a pony!

[7] The Slurpee machine at a nearby 7-11. The new Spongebob Slurpee is yummers! It tastes like a gay pineapple!

[8] 50¢ gets you a chance to win the Care Bear knockoff of your dreams at Kountry Kitchen restaurant!

[9] This mound of food was courtesy of the local Chicken Express. I ordered it, then proceeded to get bloated after just 3 chicken strips. Lol! One of the rare occasions where my eyes were bigger than my stomach. Great okra, BTW!

[10] It's the little things that mean so much: One of my favorite things about Jason's Deli- they offer LIME wedges for your tea. Not just lemon. WOOT!

[11] My grilled chicken panini from Jason's Deli.

[12] An over-priced, yet cool pair of vintage ice skates at a garage sale.

[13] A close-up of some of the wisteria that surrounds the archway of my front porch.

[14] An over-priced (are you getting the theme of this particular garage sale?) vintage telephone ($40! w/e). Cool-looking, though.

[15] The front of my house with the wisteria in full bloom! Mmmmm! Smells so nice!

[16] Some groovy old metal table that looks like a mortar & pestle. VERY cool, but I have no place to put it. It'd be awesome in a kitschy bathroom, though! $40 (Do these people know any other price besides $40?)

[17] It's beginning to look a lot like Spring in Texas! Lock your car.

[18] A groovy old metal carrying case with great graphics. Purchased at a GOOD garage sale. $6

Dr. Pepper Slurpee!!! Man, it sucks living here on this rock in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. :-(

Gatochy-
Aren't the bunnies great? I swear, Target has THE best in-store displays in the business. Halloween time is great too.

And you're right, I AM proud of my plant life. And grateful to the elderly woman who lived here before I did, who planted it all for me. I SO don't have a green thumb, so I'm always pleased when something nice just pops up. I really do LOVE the wisteria. It smells so good at night when the wind blows. Everytime I poke my head out the door to retrieve my mail, I get to breathe it in. Nice.

Marvo-
Aw man, I'm sorry. That does suck. My friend in Michigan is also void of any 7-11s. BTW, the Dr. Pepper Slurpee is just as good as it sounds (unlike the Mountain Dew Slurpees...blech)
