This and that, again

The party was so much fun, and I'm so glad I was able to make my sister's birthday one to remember. There were 17 of us there, and a good time was had by all.
Party pics

Time for the weekly tomato update. This picture was taken last Sunday

This Sunday. I had to move it for the party, and raise the lights one notch. And I have my first bud!

Here's what the front of my house looks like.

This is what it looked like last April. I can't wait to see color again.

I made the Butternut Squash soup again. Here's the soup before pureeing and again after. Yum! Let me know if anyone wants the recipe.

I really did mean to write a post, not just post pictures, but I don't have time anymore. Emily and I are going to TGI Friday's for dinner. If you go to bradsdeals.com, there's a buy one get one entree free coupon. So, we're off!

You and your sister look alot alike!

I am so anxious to try that soup recipe! It looks delightful.

I can't WAIT for Spring. Yesterday we reached about 70 again...I wore flip flops. It was heavenly. I want more.

Have a beautiful day, Cheryl!

Glad the party went well.
I'm so ready for spring too. I will miss my garden at the old house come spring.

What a fabulous picture of you and your sister! I'm glad the party went well. Exciting times in the tomato hut too. Can't wait to hear how they taste!

I'm looking forward to all that comes with spring too - there are officially only 38 days to go:)

Oh I am positively jealous of your little tomato grower thingy! I've seen 'em...and they seemed expensive until I know you're going to have tomatoes very soon.

Great pics! You are stunning!

Glad the party went well. I can see the resemblance between you and your sister. Okay. I know that's to be expected but I usually don't see *resemblances.*

The tomatoes are lookin' good!

I love the photos! Your party looked so fun and lots of yummy food! The soup look mahhhhvelous. If you post the recipe, I will be very happy. I've got a good butternut squash soup recipe, but would love to see another one.

I loved this post. :)
