My Little Ray of Sunshine

The Duo (I think) at Fits and Starts has given me a "Ray of Sunshine" award. This is totally awesome since I tend to think that I'm mostly blogging for myself as opposed to other people (I started this blog as a more environmentally friendly alternative to a paper journal about the trials and tribulations of gardening in the "frying pan that is Austin, Texas" TM Lee17 at The Sun is Killing Me.

Of course, I always think of the sarcastic "Ray of Sunshine" whenever I hear it--I work with a woman who is the lead for determining when to close roads because creeks going out of bank. She's always thinking of what the worst case scenario will be (Example: It will be raining cats and dogs in the Hyde Park area, but not downtown. Stubb's will be having a music show and something will be going on in Waterloo Park. Since it's not raining at either venue, the people don't know that the water is going to come flashing down the creek and they'll get swept away. Death and mayhem ensue.). This is why a bunch of us always refer to her as "our little ray of sunshine"

Thanks Katina! How funny to pop on and see this...I've been sooo down and depressed that I haven't blogged in over a month! Thanks for the vote of looks like a beautiful day today...I'll get out and love my yard a wee bit. Happy Valentines to you and your lovely family!
