March, Memories & Patchouli!

I think Spring is finally trying to push through this dreadful Winter we've had!  Ugh!  I need a huge dose of Vitamin D!  Although, just being able to open the windows during the day has been wonderful.  The little birds are so happy out there!  I sat out with my camera yesterday and took photos of the little birds singing and flitting cute!  This one little fellow looked at me so to say "where have you been?"  And then [insert drum-roll] a wonderful thing has happened in my pond!  
Yes, yes, yes!!  Frog eggs and lots of them!  I'm so excited!  Any of you that follow my blog knows all about my pond life and just Spring in general around here...of course, I'll keep you posted on these cuties when they start hatching!  I can't wait! 
 Ah...with longer days, comes even longer shadows.  I love walking up our driveway and being covered in shadowy hugs from the trees...makes me feel loved, wanted and comforted.  I'll stand out there and just look up and feel the warmth of the sun smiling down at me.  On this particular day, for some reason, I was thinking about times I used to spend in New Orleans, shopping with my sister, eating shrimp po-boys, drinking dollar strawberry daquiries and coming back home with funky handmade jewelry, sarongs and patchouli oil from the purple people at the flea market.  I had oftened wondered what happened to some of those people and then a friend had a post on facebook that led me right to their website!  A few mouse clicks later, I had a package on the way with the most coveted of all patchouli oil....just smelling it takes me back and makes me smile.  Thank you purple people!
 And a little "Irish Luck" from me to you ~ comment on this post and your name will be in a drawing to win these!  Lita will be picking the winner Monday [St. Patrick's Day - March 17th].  But, if you don't win and would love a pair, I'm offering "free shipping" on them for a limited time.  My way to say "thanks" for being so awesome and always reading my ramblings!

Happy Wednesday!

love and peace always ~ Kathy
