You deserve it!

It's been raining ALL week, and Dave is off canoeing in Canada, so I decided to mail order that deliciously scented Deserving Thyme shampoo and lotion that I discovered years ago at a hotel and have been thinking about ever since ... free FedEx shipping AND free gift wrap. Then Julia and I decided to dedicate an entire post to "YOU DESERVE IT!" We encourage all of you to gift yourselves with whatever you deserve!

Dorky picture of me taken by Julia with products I ordered for myself.
The cheery free gift wrap just made my day!

The night before, worn down by all the rain and not being able to do anything outside, I baked a batch of chocolate chip cookies and Julia made vegan peanut butter chocolate brownies.


Why, cookies FOR ME?
You deserve it, Julia said, as she took another goofy photo.

Even the rabbit got into the action.
You deserve that banana, Bunners!

Then, because it was STILL raining today, my neighbor and I went to her favorite nursery and loaded my van with flowers for our pots. We deserve it! Now we just have to wait for a letup in the rain and cold so we can get outside and plant everything.

Have a colorful day
