happy new week

Will winter ever end? I'm not so sure since last week was cold, snowy, even had some sleet. Really waiting to get two or three nice days in a row. It's hard to believe we're into May and still having such cold weather.

I mean really...what is up with this?

So, I found a couple more treasures to keep for myself last week. One was a set of glasses made from wine bottles. I just love the colors. For a while now I've been wanting some of these, but really did not want to try and make them myself. I was surprised when I found these...and got a deal on them. Can't beat that.

Now, if someone can tell me why I bought a whole watermelon??? What was I thinking? I love watermelon, but David, being diabetic, is limited to how much he can have and I can only eat so much. Anyways, it was much better than I expected it to be for this time of year. And, if you have never tried watermelon with ginger on it, do. I had a friend from Kenya tell me that they sprinkle ginger juice on their watermelon. I don't have the patience to grate enough ginger to get enough juice, so I just add grated ginger on ours. We LOVE it! I try to get ginger in our diets as often as possible, this is a great way to do that. Unless you LOVE ginger as much as I do, you may not want to add quite as much grated ginger. But do give it a try, I think you'll really enjoy this twist on watermelon.

Wishing everyone a beautiful week ahead.
