Thank you!

Really, this award is to all of you who keep coming back and care enough to leave a comment. Karen was so awesome for remembering me and I appreciate it (I need to take a page out of her book--I've fallen off the wagon a bit lately, pesky emotional eating!)

If you haven't visited her blog I highly recommend it, for the pictures and the message. Rock on Karen!

Change for the Season

So, I've decided that I'll be dedicating many of my future posts to gardening. I came across a cool site where other gardeners have blogs so it should be fun to share!

Please stick around because I'll still post about that other fun stuff (healthy living, exercise, me getting a teaching job!).

Thank You!

Two years ago, I was an avid blogger--commenting on other blogs and having lots of comments on mine (I'm glad that a few of you have stuck around ;) One such commenter was a lovely lady from British Columbia. She had stopped to comment on my garden photos and I visited her blog to see the lovely photos of her flowers and garden. I noticed the lovely peachy/apricot irises and said that I would love to have them in my garden. What do you think she did? She cut off several rhizomes and sent them packed, every so lovingly to me! I planted them and finally after two years they have settled in nicely and are blooming as we speak!

Thank you so much Sabine! People like you are such a blessing to "meet" and I hope that although you don't blog anymore you will stop by and accept my online gratitude. My garden and I both thank you :)

What's Better?

So, I've been looking at places where there are teaching jobs available in the USA and I've come up with Florida, South and North Carolina, and Arizona. Now, I'm looking for advice from my American blogger friends (especially those few who live in the south). What's better in terms of cost of living and quality of life? I'm not crazy about heat so I wonder if the Carolina's are better?

Thanks for any information :)
