A Gift from Nature

These beautiful tulips are adorning my table
compliments of my dearest. :)
and bring color into the area where we spend a lot of time in.
Of course being an old romantic I went to look up the meaning of Tulips lol

Tulips are symbolic of fame and perfect love. The symbolic meanings also change with the color of the tulips. Red tulips mean "believe me" and are a declaration of true love. Variegated tulips mean "you have beautiful eyes." Yellow tulips mean "there's sunshine in your smile" and cheerful thoughts. Cream colored tulips mean "I will love you forever." White tulips symbolize heaven, newness and purity. Purple tulips symbolize royalty. Pink tulips mean affection and caring. Orange tulips mean energy, enthusiasm, desire, and passion.

Wow! He still loves me ;) 

I transplanted my  bushes into self watering pots.
I hope they will be ok this summer in the pots.

They sure look nice right now.
My husband power washed the driveway which looks almost brand new now.
Another wash will do it.
He also cut the grass but it rained and it grew back so fast so now he needs to do it again.
I have knee trouble these days so I can't do much to help him anymore.

Last night we went to the pub again. Saturday, it was full of people
and birthday parties. The Pub blows up these crackers and paper flies everywhere
like when they celebrate New Years in New York.
Our table was covered. lol

I tried this Pizza with shredded calabrese , cheese and
they topped it with fresh tomatoes, chopped salad,
and sour creme. I never had one like this so it was interesting for me to try it.
 It was almost raw like a pizza salad. lol
Lorna got me into the Margarita mood so I ordered one
with cranberry and grapefruit.
It was delicious but I stopped at one and had a beer with the meal.
Hubby had a Montreal Smoked meat Sandwich.
(BC styled ;0)
Today I want to try making the Pizza recipe they do in Sao Palo.
You open a pita bread and spread mince meat with chopped parsley in it and salt and then top that with mozzarela then you close it into a pocket
  and bake it or toast it. You eat it with a knife and fork.
They said it was so popular the owner got a patent on his recipe.
Sao Palo has wonderful restaurants but you need a local
who knows the streets and people
or you get cheated.
The best recipes still come from France.
Nothing beats their cuisine.
I sure like to try making them but then I see how rich they are and
hold back. lol

My computer is old and slow so we are looking into buying a new one before it crashes.
It sure did a lot of work for me without a glitch.
It is a Gateway.
Now I wonder how to go about taking everything off this computer and putting it into the new one.
I have my emails and pictures and of course all my book marks
I hate losing those.
Takes years to collect them.
This is where I like paper more
Once it's there, unless there is a fire or something, its there.
I also got a present of a JVC movie camera.
It apparently can send emails too.
So I might be able to put some movies on my blog. lol

Mike and Nick go into a bar, whooping and hollering. "Bartender, drinks for everyone. We're buying!"
they yell.

"What's the special occassion?" asks the bartender.

"We just finished a jigsaw puzzle, and it only took us seven months," Nick replies.

"Seven months?" says the bartender. "What's the big deal?
It shouldn't take you seven months to do a puzzle."

"Oh, yeah?" Mike answers. "On the box it said 'two to four years'!"
A pregnant woman lapses into a coma. She awakens and frantically calls for her doctor. "You had twins, a boy and a girl. They're fine," he says. "Your brother named them."

Oh, no, the new mother thinks. He's an idiot. Expecting the worst, she asks, "What's the girl's name?"

"Denise," the doctor says.

Not bad, she thinks. I guess I was wrong about him. "And the boy?"

Pretty tulips!

Like your hubby mine cut the grass last week and the same thing happened, it now needs cutting again! His next job is power washing the front path and the back patio - when we get a dry day.

Hilary - Flowers are always a message of cheer.

Akelamalu - I guess the weather is the same for every one lol
This morning it is quite chilly and windy this morning.
We closed off the heating because it was too hot and last night was wonderful to sleep.
