I remember back to my single days and when I would get depressed. I would call my Mom and she would tell me to go and buy a plant because it would make me feel better.
I thought it sounded goofy but soon learned that plants do give off good vibes. Just as fresh flowers do.
When walking past the Farmer's Market here in Uptown Charlotte yesterday I saw these and they called my name.
I just love sunflowers! How gorgeous are these?
It's little things like this that make me happy.
I arranged them in a vase on our kitchen table and Brad and I proceeded to cook our Tuesday night dinner. A little music, a little wine, candles lit and the grill in full force.
Dinner consisted of fresh grilled corn, portabello mushroom caps and pork tenderloin. We've been going crazy at the Farmer's Market so this is what a lot of our meals look like this summer. Our healthy eating has been going great and I hope to be at my goal weight by July 4th!
Buddy's on a mission to lose a few pounds too. The doctor said he could lose three. It doesn't sound like much but for a little guy like him it's harder than you think. I've been taking him on my big power walks in the afternoon so he can burns some calories. LOL!
That's all I have for today. Still keeping up with the Casey Anthony Trial. I just noticed that the State of Florida has rested their case and tomorrow the Defense will start theirs. Should be interesting to say the least!
