It feels great to be back home...sort of

Even though I was in San Antonio for a conference (which was great), we found time to get out and about to enjoy the city too. I loved the restaurants. I enjoyed delicious meals and awesome Mojitos. Friday was the nicest day of the week. We only had time to hit the touristy type places close to the convention center but still it was a blast to walk around the city.

There aren't too many cities I am in a hurry to head back to but San Antonio leads the list. Next time I would like to bring my hubby along and get a chance to see some of the surrounding area. The first three pictures were taken in San Antonio on Friday. The last one was taken this morning. It shows the weather that was waiting for me at home. We love Wisconsin but I sure would like to garden outside of zone 4 someday.

Sigh, I think I need to go take a look at some gardening catalogs until I get over this urge to immediately fly back to Texas. Last week I placed the last of my 2010 seed orders (no really, this time I mean it!). I'm looking forward to their arrival and having some time to plan out the seed starting and planting dates.
Happy Gardening!

Everyone wins!

You might have heard about the recent One World One Heart event. If not, scroll down for some info about it. It was fun and featured three things I enjoy: visiting blogs, giving things away and winning stuff. I won the jackpot on all three. I found some really fun blogs to follow and met new friends. The event would have been successful for that alone. However, I also won a prize at three blogs. Pictured is the first of the three to arrive. It is from Craftymoose and she does very nice beading work!

I also enjoyed the chance to give gifts. It is fun sharing things that I like using which includes the magazine and "smart pot" that were in my giveaway. Most of the bloggers in this event make wonderful crafts. I sure don't fall into that category. The closest I get to crafts is designing seed packets for the seeds I save and give. However, I loved the chance to participate anyway.

I'm really looking forward to this next week. I'm headed to San Antonio for a conference. Although the weather doesn't sound too warm, it will be an improvement over what we have here. It is a city I have very much wanted to visit so I can't wait!
