T Stands for Tuesday

It's Tuesday and time for tea ...naaa that would have to be coffee for me :)  Not that I don't like tea I just like coffee so much better and even more so since my box of Marley Coffee arrived :) 
I want it every day but I also want it to last for a long time so I'm trying to ration it. We'll see how that works out :) 
Spring is definitely in the air here! The daffodils are really waking up. 

This is just the first wave of them :) 
Haven't done any work outside since I was here last. It's been too wet and cool. Today was beautiful and warm but the ground is still squishy wet out there. 
So I've been starting seeds indoors and planning out what I want to do out there this year.
 My helper has been very sick this week with the super flue that is going around and even ended up in the ER. I think they wanted to keep him but he wouldn't stay. So if you've got an extra prayer or positive thought could ya send it his way. He's a great kid and I'm really worried about him. 
So I've been keeping myself  busy with my art... working on some blanks note cards and in my journals. 

Only 3 of the cards are finished... the rest just have backgrounds done on a Gelli Plate. 
So that's what's going on in this neighborhood. 
Today's Random Thoughts


  1. You must save some of that Marley Coffee in case I drop by (joke). Ever since you shared it last week, I read up on it and the foundation that supports it.

    WOW, those dafs are amazing. I have two, but they didn't bloom this year. They are on the south side of the garage in soil that is so hard, I've never been able to dig it up to transplant them. Yours, on the other hand, are gorgeous.

    So, so sorry to hear about your young helper. He must have a super bug. It's a bit late in the year for flu, but I guess, since it's been such a mild winter, we haven't had the usual outbreaks we normally get. I hope he is well soon.

    I love the second saying. I agree that you can't put on airs or try to be someone you are not, because the world sees through phonies.

    Thanks for sharing your garden, your random thoughts, AND your Marley coffee with us for T this soon to beTuesday.

  2. Your coffee sounds good, and the daffodils are so cheerful looking...just love them.

    GREAT thought for this week! Happy T-day

  3. Lovely flower, art and words- what can man want more? Coffee, looks great! Happy T Day, hugs, Valerie

  4. beautiful daffodils, and so sorry for your helper. i hope the flu time is over hear, but mid-march you can´t be sure.
    good you already started working on your gelli Backgrounds... mine turn out to stay raw for Ages...
    and thanks for the quotes again. happy t-day!

  5. Yes, coffee please for now:) I love seeing the awakening of the spring flowers and budding trees etc! Your poor guy, I do hope he gets LOTS of rest and water and feels better soon. That super flu is really nasty. Lovely looking cards. Happy T day!

  6. Now Carol since everyday is special and so are you I think you should drink that coffee :-)
    Daffodils are such a welcome sight aren't they.
    That is a very fine wagon wheel you have too.
    Very nice card selection you have there. Some of the monoprinted backgrounds are so cool it's hard to cover them sometimes I find.
    Hope your helper is feeling much much better very soon.
    Take care and Happy T Day oxo

  7. Good luck with the coffee rationing and oh my, your daffs are a vision indeed and I when I see a sea of them I always remember that poem by Wordsworth. Happy T day to you! Annette

  8. I've never heard of Marley coffee, but I'll be looking for it. We like trying new kinds of coffee :) Those daffodils! You inspire me to get out today and wander.

  9. Oh how pretty those daffodils are! We are wet and squishy too but no daffs yet so w are behind you being a few hundred miles north. Hope all goes well with your helper and what is Marley coffee? Or should I say from where is Marley coffee? Hugs-Erika

  10. Looks like Spring has sprung with you too!! I really needed to hear that middle quote. Thanks for that this T day! Hugs! deb

  11. oh my, love the photos of your daffodils! such a nice little grouping by your fence and ornamental grasses. always good to have some colorful cards on hand, and the recipients will love them! healing thoughts for your helper....happy T day!

  12. Good luck with the coffee rationing!I love the daffodils - ours at the caravan are way behind but when we went out at the weekend there were loads around! I'm sorry to hear about your helper - I hope he gets better soon! Your art work looks great and I love the quotes this week! Hugs, Chrisx

  13. Hope your helper gets better soon. The daffodils look beautiful. Your note cards are so colorful with the gelli print patterns.
    Happy T day

  14. I'm not good at rationing the good stuff. Hope your help is on the mend real soon. We had over a month of sickness working its way through our house. It was awful!!!! There were 2 urgent care visits and a regular dr visit during that time. BAH!
    Lovely notecards!
