And the Oscar goes to...A Purple Flower!

I've been kind of excited all day. I think Spring has arrived in New York. I really love winter and the snow, but I think today literally put a "spring" in my step. It was such a beautiful day, in the 50's and sunny! The nice weather and preview of the new season to come, has me hopeful...

The icing on my "hope cake" today was a small patch of purple flowers. I was walking out the door and happened to look down. Amongst the mud and weeds, was the prettiest patch of bright purple flowers, with orange middles. Beautiful. They stopped me in my tracks and put a smile on my face. A purple flower gave me hope that good things are going to happen this year. I forgot to mention it to my honey when I came home. And right before dinner, he must have found the hope flower patch on his own, because he surprised me with one pretty purple flower, with an orange middle. :)

I'm watching the Oscars. Here are my thoughts so far...

Kathy Ireland is just plain weird,ok. I think she thought she was in the middle of a beauty pageant. Sandra Bullock looks stunning! And I hope she wins. Is anyone else just tired of George Clooney? His wifey there is sort of strange, does she even talk? I don't think I'll ever be tired of Meryl Streep. She's an amazing actress. If you haven't seen the movie "One True Thing." Please do. Wonderful movie, and Meryl rocks it. The Oscars set is awesome, kind of has that 30's-40's theme going. I love it. Very classy. I know Tina Fey is only there to have a good time, but I love her. Can she be my friend?? I wish I were at the Oscars, in a gown that costs more than IVF and dripping with diamonds. Sighhhhh.

Oh well, I'll settle for just watching from my couch. I bet they're not serving Ben & Jerry's Cherry Garcia at the Oscars. Insert evil laugh here. I don't mind being home, anyways. Because I've got purple flowers, with orange middles, growing right outside my window...

Kathy Ireland was SO weird!!! Our cable provider doesn't offer E! It was killing me to watch the ABC red carpet.

Agree that the sunshine is an automatic mood picker upper :)
