Downsizing and Garden Gnomes

This morning on my bike commute it happened. I had more "stuff" than I could fit in my bike messenger bag. Oh the horror!! Somehow between swim stuff, work papers, clothes, lunch food, etc. I managed to max out the messenger bag. I had to decide between a pair of jeans and my tasty Trader Joes lunch and snacks. The food won. (I have a pair of pants I leave at work that will get worn yet again). My birthday is coming up and I have my eyes set on this fun bag. It is even green!

I love our garden. I'm not much of a gardener, thankfully Steven keeps everything alive in our yard. I'm sure it would all be dead if I was in charge. I noticed the other day we are getting our first yellow lemons of the season! I usually make some lemonade and then have no idea what to do with the rest of them. If you have any ideas I'd love to hear them. I do like the color they add to the yard.

Gerbera daisies and garden gnomes.
I'm pretty sure these two items complete any garden.

In college my friend Laura and I watched the Full Monty and ever since then I've had this thing for garden gnomes. They always make me laugh.

Enjoy the day!
