Flowers and Rainbows...

This past weekend flew by! On Saturday, Garet and I went on the hunt for some flowers and herbs. We went to Lowes and just got some simple flowers to go beside our mailbox. I still don't know what I am going to put in the backyard under our windows. Since that area doesn't get too much sun, I am still trying to figure out what to put there. Garet bumped into a woman that he knew from work who just happens to own a small place down the street and she sells herbs and vegetables. So we went there and got some fun stuff. We didn't get a chance to plant them (it rained on Sunday). I'll have to do that this coming weekend. Saturday night Garet and I had a lovely dinner at a little Italian place.

On Sunday, after church, Garet had to go work for a little bit. I decided to make some cookies - on a gross rainy day, that is the best! I have to say, these were the BEST chocolate chip cookies I have ever made! I used a recipe that I have used before - but for some reason this time they stayed all fluffy and yummy. I think it was due to my new mixer :)

Sunday night we took dinner to a friend that just had a baby. On the way, it stopped raining. Then I looked over to my right and saw the biggest, most beautiful rainbow!
Can you see it? I couldn't get the whole thing but we could see the complete arch! It was so pretty!

Yesterday I was walking around our backyard with Suzi and I went to check on my Hydrangea - I saw a little bloom!! I was so excited! (I know I'm easy!) Both of my plants have many small little buds on them, so I have just been waiting for them to pop! Finally a little one did!
You can't tell from the picture, but it is a very light pink. I know that a Hydrangea color depends on how much acid is in your soil. It will either be blue or pink. Well I it looks like ours will be pink. Yay! I can't wait for the whole thing to be in bloom!

I love rainbows! It's comforting to see God's promise right before us. You snapped a great photo!
(I had no idea about the color of hydragnea bushes. Neat!)
