I HAD to be obedient- after all, you have to set that example in order to teach it to your children right? And there's poor little Jacob with a true need!
We loaded up and off to our favorite ( >:I ) national retail chain we went. I promised myself NO flowers this year. What's the use- they just die halfway through the season and with the hope of some outside renovation, they'll just get in the way. I'll save myself the hassle and Mark the money--see, I'm always thinking of you darling :)
But then there's that new tent area... it sure looks bare and lonely- kind of un-inviting. And I didn't make any promises about that... Look at it-- that pitiful lonely bench. And I said no flowers - I never said anything about shrubs. Sure am glad Mark taught the kids how to plant :)
And look- those nifty white flowers are solar-powered! Had to add a little 'tackiness' to the tenting area :)
Now once those little bushes (one little speck on each side of the bench) brave the deer and grow a bit, don't you think it'll look MUCH better?? :) And I guarantee that Mark will NEVER notice them, unless he reads this blog- or the children open their cute little mouths :)
Suppose I should go do something constructive!
P.S. Jacob LOVES his new sunglasses! :)
