As the sunshine came streaming through the windows of what I thought was a fairly tidy house, I realized it is no accident that Spring sunshine and Spring cleaning arrive at the same time of year...
A blogger friend can turn sometimes turn into (a much appreciated) prayer partner for a similar need we share. (Thank you Debby - you blessed my heart!)
There are wonderful little eyebrow shavers out there (I got mine on Amazon) that are a wonder at shaping your eyebrows BUT they are very dangerous when you decide to scrape off just a bit of dry skin above an eyebrow and while you are concentrating on this you get carried away and before you know it a small portion of said eyebrow goes missing...yeah, so that happened.
Eyebrow pencils work wonders in covering up "mistakes" that happen to, ahem, some of us : )
It is okay to be the person along the road that the Good Samaritan stops for. Most of us are natural helpers but it is okay to be the one on the receiving end as well.
Meeting someone with your same first name creates an instant bond no matter the age difference.
When you pick up your watering can (to water some new strawberry plants you are adding to the current bed) and the spout is a bit clogged and you think it is a rock so you swish the can around and proceed to water it is quite possible you should look inside first. After watering I decided to swish the can again and empty it out to retrieve the rock. Turns out the "rock" was actually an adorable, medium sized (and probably oh so dizzy after all my swishing of him) frog! He sat, understandably so, a bit dazed for quite a while so I ran for the camera to "capture" him but alas - when I returned he had, obviously, retreated for safer digs. Poor guy!
