late bloomer

As I went out to water the garden this morning, this sight awaited me. I had thought this wisteria plant hadn't made it through the winter, yet here it is, suddenly sprouting new leaves! It made me so happy! I had stopped watering it even, thinking it was a lost cause, but it has persevered and triumphed! You can be sure it got a hearty drink from the hose first thing!

Ultimate Torture

I was on assignment for my husband during my lunch hour today: purchase 6 pretzels for a Home Teaching lesson tonight on prayer (the pretzel looks like folded arms....get it?). So I ran over to Wetzel's Pretzels in the mall and had to wait "7 minutes" so they could make up that many at once. Mission accomplished, I'm in my car on the way back to work and suddenly am hit with one of my favorite aromas: warm, soft, fresh bread....and here I am on day 5 of being gluten free (which may warrant a blog post of its own in the near future...)
