"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. " -Helen Keller

Oh Happy Day...

Today has been a much happier day. The stuff that has made me happy is kind of silly but, hell, I'll take it.

Last night I found out I won the Flip MinoHD video camera being given away by Cisco through Aunt Becky. I am thrilled. I have been lusting after one of these wonderful little video cameras for a long time and now I have one. Best of all, I will have it in hand before BlogHer.

And, today I bought my bus tickets to get to BlogHer. I remember telling y'all about my $60 round trip fair and now I have my e-tickets in hand.I even know what subway lines I need to hit (and which station I have to change lines at) to get from the bus station to the hotel. I am getting so excited.

And now, just because I feel like it, here is some garden porn(all pictures are clickable)...
my entire container garden

And, my lovely tomato plants have about 14 baby tomatoes on them. Woohooo!

Hey... I seem to be having issues trying to comment on your blog these days. Every time I try, the page crashes. Crazy, huh?

Well if this one gets through, I'm glad that things are looking a little brighter today! Your garden is beautiful!

Kristin,
What a cool win with the video camera. Your going to have a great time with BlogHer. Will there be pics? Awesome Garden!

I am sorry you didn't win the contest. I announced the winner today. The contest was Sunday to Thursday.

No worries. I am having another contest on Monday. Keep an eye for that one. :)

I am SO HAPPY YOU WON. No, like, I might actually do a happy dance. You won fair and square, but this is totally my happy day!
