Have You Heard of Swagbucks?

If you're wondering what all the buzz about Swagbucks is,
let me fill you in my friend! 

It's just the coolest way to search the internet! You simply log onto the website, sign-up for an account & then start earning "swagbucks".  You can use your earned "swagbucks" to make purchases. If you're like me, you are wondering what the catch is. So far, I have not been able to come up with a reason not to do it.  I signed myself up with an account, downloaded the toolbar & was simply amazed at how easy it is to earn points just by my regular internet surfing.

I've been telling my husband about how I intend on saving up all my points so that I can buy our kids Christmas presents at with my earnings.  We have four computers in our house; I downloaded the toolbar on each one to make sure we don't miss out on any earnings.

Pharmacy Store Gardening?

After running around town & doing a little online research, I found myself at the local pharmacy.
For what, you ask?
Well, for my gardening supplies...duh?

Who would've thought that I could buy all my seeds, starter mix and supplies at the pharmacy for substantially less money than any of the nursery's locally? I even scored a four shelf greenhouse to stand alongside my refrigerator.

Can you believe it?
I sure couldn't.

I seem to be prepared now to get this party started. I can't tell you how much I've
been looking forward to having a garden.
  It may be my sole purpose for buying a house.

Updates & Plans

It dawned on me today that due to the business of life and illnesses, I haven't made any updates to my blog.
My Detox Diet:
This came to an abrupt end due to my lack of pre-planning.  I did lose about 5 pounds in one week; but in the future I will need to make sure I have enough groceries to last at least a week (2 weeks are preferred).  Come summer I will have bounty from my garden to help tide me over...this should make it easier.

Which brings me to...

I'm looking forward to getting down to the local nursery to pick up some gardening supplies.  This will be our first full year in our new house since my husband retired from the military.  I've been wanting to have a serious garden for so many years.  I've been getting by using a container garden with a couple tomato plants and an occasional pepper plant in the past.  Last year we were in the process of moving cross-country, expecting our sixth child, and purchasing our first home together. There was just too much going on in our lives to make a commitment to a garden. Oh, how I missed having fresh veggies from the garden. Now I have visions of fruits and veggies galore! As summer came to an end last year, my husband and I came accross a nursery that was having a moving sale.  We made out with four raspberry plants (my honey's favorite) for about 75% off. I'm hoping they will like the ground where we planted them.  This year I'm on the prowl for blueberry bushes. Due to the fact that I was a military brat & have since been a Navy wife living in arid CA for 20 years, I know absolutely nothing about growing blueberries. I could really use all the help I can get. I'm hoping I can find some fairly inexpensive bushes soon.

Oh, and strawberries!
 Sorry, I'm very excited.
