~ Taking Time Out ~

Dh and I took some time-out yesterday , we went shopping. He needed concrete mix for a gate and I wanted to checkout the garden center and netting to put over the chicken coop.

The garden center was full of wonderful plants , I had a hard time deciding on what I really needed. I got 3 potted herbs and some herb seed. I was thrilled to find stevia , hope I'll have better luck with it this year. Last year I purchased stevia and set it out to soon , the frost killed it. I also bought lemon balm and lemon basil. I love citrus flavored foods and drinks , looking forward to trying recipes with these herbs. We also purchased cilantro , dill , garlic chives , lavender lady , lime basil , oregano , parsley , radish and sweet basil seeds. I saved seed from my cilantro last year , but bought a packet just in case it doesn't sprout.

After we left the The Home Depot , we went to Target. I bought all the Grands a outfit , a new hobo bag for myself and a few food items. We left Target and went to TGIF 's for supper. It was nice to have some time-out , we haven't been out in long time. Hope you were Blessed with some time-out this weekend.

PS. When you get a chance scroll
down my page and check out the little outfit I bought at a garage sale for a dollar.

Also check out the free poster
I was handed after dd asked to
buy one.

I hope to get more herbs. I've
been trying to figure out the
best herb to keep spiders out
of the house. I think it is sage
and that is what I bought on my
walk to get milk.

So far after putting turmeric,
out where I seen ants I haven't
seen any. I never noticed ants
untill the neighbors put in some
old bark chips that someone must
of given them. I am suprized the
apartment managment let them do it.

So I think I will try and get some mint also. Some type of mint planted around the foundation of the home is suppose to keep ants away.

God Bless You and Yours!!!
