Picture Time

This weekend went by very quick--I did a lot of baking, as the weather was cool and it would rain off and on. All the laundry has been completed--except I just have the bed sheets---and then it starts all over again. It is cool today about 58 degrees--these are the clouds in the sky right now--> This is part of my street. The houses are so close together. Can you see the palm trees?
My flowers are starting to bloom in my yard:) Pretty pink:)
On Saturday, I went to the Farmer's Market, and I stocked up on fruits and veggies for the week--I cleaned everything and got everything ready for easy use. The green onions are all washed and cleaned and put in a bag--the radishes are all cleaned and ready for use and put in baggies and so on, and so on---depending on the room I have in my fridge, I will use tupperware, so I don't waste baggies, but the room in my fridge is rather snug this week, so the baggies fit better.
Also, Martha says to wrap your cilantro in paper towel and put in a bag, to keep it fresh--mmm, I just love cilantro-->
At the Farmer's Market, I was so happy--all the lettuce was so much cheaper then the grocery store---instead of paying 3.00 for Romaine at the Grocery I got it for .97 cents--so I got romaine, green leaf, and yes, I even got iceberg--I know iceberg doesn't really have any nutritional value, but it adds a nice crunch when mixed with the other lettuce. I got green peppers, carrots, cucumbers, etc....fruit too--bananas, melon, grapes--OHHH, and Avacados were on sale too--YAY--I bought a bunch--and my favorite, alfapha sprouts:)

Last, but not least---My ducky border--->

Saturday Dinner:

I love the pics...especially the palm trees on your street! Im wondering which state that is. Looks so pretty. I wish we had palm trees in Canada but nope, you wont find one anywhere in Canada haha :)


Amber said...

Your neighborhood looks so nice. That is one thing I miss living in the country...neighbors. I love going to farmer's market. The fruits and veggies are always fresh.
The bathroom turned out too cute! My girls would love it!

Oh, I just love to see pictures! Thanks for sharing them with us. (o:

Tracey said...

58? Cool? Oh, honey...where did it say you lived? Palm trees, blooming's warm. I've still got snow on the hill across the road.

Hey, Candy, I saw palm trees in Victoria (Vancouver Is) a few years back!

Jenny said...

Julieann, I feel warmer already. Those pics are gorgeous. Also, what a neat idea with the veggies. I wash up all my fruit as soon as I get it, but I never thought to do so with the veggies. What a double timesaver that would be!

Oh my, the Palm trees are so beautiful! Seeing the beautiful flower and the yummy veggies makes me yearn so for warmer weather. I love the ducky border, every child needs a yellow rubber duckie:)

Pam said...

Hey Ya'll - I live in Florida and have the palm trees in my yard and on my street as well! My air conditioner has ran off and on today. I see all those dear people up north, fighting all that snow and I must say I don't envy them at all right now. God love their little hearts! However, in the summer, when it is so hot and humid here, I do envy them quite often! LOL

Kelli said...

Hi Julieann! It sounds like you had a lovely weekend! Such a pretty picture of palm trees and that flower is beautiful!
I can't wait until our farmer's market opens next month!!
Your ducky border is too cute!!
Talk to you soon!

Your flower is beautiful. It looks like it was a beautiful day. I like the border, it looks very nice.

The rubber ducky border came out really cute!! I loved the pictures of your neighborhood too. I really miss living in California. Is the pretty pink flower a camelia? My mom has huge bushes of them growing around their front door, and as far back as I can remember she would float them in water in these crystal bowls. So pretty!! :-)

Oh that ducky border is sunny and cheerful! Your home is beautiful!

Not sure if they have defnitely been proven to be bad for you but I have heard that pregnant women should not eat sprouts because of the bacteria. There'll be plenty of chances to eat them again once your precious baby arrives.

Hi Jackie:) Nice to see you---I have asked my Doctor of everything that is safe and is not safe and he has assured me, that what I am eating is okay. I am going to check out the link you posted though:)
