Stanley helped me do things right

We've been seeing more and more spring like weather and even signs that spring really is going to grace us with it's presence this year.
A couple weekends ago I got out in the yard to do a little cleaning up. I don't know why I don't rake up all those leaves in the fall.

Just this past weekend I found things growing. Here's the Hosta poking out of the ground.

And would you look at that. The trees are going to actually have leaves on them after all.

On a side note. It was one year ago today that I smoked my last cigarette. I made it a whole year smoke free. Now if I could only get Wade to join me.

It is nice to get out and work in the yard. It is a good feeling to see everything looking healthy and nice.
It still is cold here, rainy and windy. I even turned the heat on today!
Congratulations on such a good thing that you have done for yourself.
Blessings, Catherine

Ginny said...

Congratulations!!! I know how hard that is. I have heard that tobacco is more addictive than almost anything. You are a really good example for Wade.

Duni said...

Well I'm glad you're finally seeing signs of spring! And yay for being smoke free an entire year already :)

Catherine said...

Well you know I'm partial to Stanley... ;)

Your garden is coming along wonderfully. And a BIG congratulations on being smoke free for a whole year! Excellent!! That's wonderful.

Keep up the good work!

My mother-in-law loves to go out and trim along our fence-line. She is not concerned when her trimming leaves gaps at the bottom of the fence until one of our pups decides to check out the rest of the neighborhood, though.

Way to go on the not smoking. It's a good thing. Wade will do it when he's ready. It's usually how it works. Bugger.

Yes, it's yard time all over the place. Hubby is slowly working on getting things cleaned up around here. I'm not a yard person. At. All.

Have a fabulous hump (see it's Wednesday already) day. My best to Duke. ♥♥♥

Sheryl Hastings said...

Yes,I can see it poking through. It's really trying become Spring. We are so close.

A side note my butt! This is billboard worthy news!!!! Congratulations. Your lungs, your heart, your skin, in fact every part of your body are thanking you. Fingers crossed that Wade will join you.

Wow Ann! A year of no smoking - go girl!

Betsy Adams said...

SO SO SO proud of you for quitting smoking... Doesn't Wade realize how dangerous it is to his health??? Does he still smoke inside? Gosh--I hope not since the 2nd hand smoke can hurt you also.... CONGRATS... I'm so proud of you.

Glad you are getting some spring.
