Spring = New Life

Spring is all around us. I picked up these growing plants from a friend who had planted too many. I know the feeling when it comes to plants. As these little seedlings stretch their necks to bask in more sunshine, a rare occurrence these days, I know I will be enjoying my own home-grown basil and cilantro soon. Yum.

Royal Wedding This Week? Who Knew?

There's probaly no one alive in this country who hasn't heard about The Wedding taking place this Friday. Prince William will wed Kate Middleton in a ceremony guaranteed to bring back recollections of his mother's wedding almost thirty years ago.

Kate, a commoner, would become Queen of England if William ever serves as King. Quite a lot to put on the plate of a young woman. She seems up to the task, and really, has been hanging out with royalty for years now. So she has to know what she is getting into, but I'm not sure it's something any of us would wish on our daugthers. Maybe I am wrong about that.

There are plans afoot to get up EARLY and watch the Royal Wedding, even though it will be telecast live starting at around 4 a.m. (EST) this Friday. But the lure of scones and clotted cream and pastries may be just enough to get some of us up and out that early so we can get situated in front of a big screen TV, endless coffee cup in hand.

I had the honor of making favors for this event and will be posting them this week at my Yeasty blog. Stop by and take a look. Directions will be forthcoming, too, if you are interested.

Send me a note and let me know what your plans are for the wedding. Oh, you weren't invited? They have no idea what they are missing without us there. Talk about the event of the century. . .
