Just Passing Time

Today turned into one of those easy kind of days .

Last night I was awaken by a thunder storm
that was just passing by
that turned into a gentle rain . 
 It was just what the new planting of Blue Lake Bush Beans needed !
This afternoon it is sunny and oh so lovely!!
As I looked at my to do list I decided to just do what I wanted to .
today I passed time at the 99 Cent Store .
They remind me so much of the Five & Dime stores I used to go to with my grandmother .
You never know what you will find there .
Today it was strawberries and cute summer socks to wear at night .
Yea ! Strawberry Shortcake and warm feet tonight .

On the way home I stopped at Cherry's Farm Store, my most favorite place to pass time .
It is a wonderland for a want to be farm girl like me......
I always want everything but today
a few oregano plants
climbing spinach plants
organic fertilizer
came home with me .
I had to leave the cutest little brown bunny that stole my heart there
I think I really do need three white doves for my little grandbabies
for Easter .


Today really did turn out to be one of the best kind of days .
It just passed too fast !!


I am linking to Thursday's Simple Pleasure . 


  1. I have always wanted some doves...they are so beautiful, maybe some day. Speaking of days it sounds as if yours was a lovely one.

  2. Dottie, your day does sound like the best kind of day! I am intrigued by the climbing spinach plant. That one is new to me!

  3. It looks like the kind of store you could lose track of time in; isn't that relaxing though? Glad you had such a special ordinary day.

  4. I love days like those Dottie!
    Yumm that strawberry shortcake looks de-lish!
    Loved how your day went!
    Cozy socks too!

  5. Oh Dottie, your day sounded so splendid. You got such cute socks and that strawberry shortcake looked sumptuous!

    Thank you so much for stopping by my blog tonight and commenting. I'm always so happy when I see you have visited! Take care. Hope you have another do-what-you-want day soon! Susan

  6. Sounds perfectly wonderful! I might not have been able to resist the bunny (I admit I'm a bunny lover. :) Thanks for sharing.

  7. What a calming simple pleasure. I felt I went along for the ride. The doves are beautiful. I would have found the bunny hard to resist. Great simple pleasure

  8. So, did you get the doves?
    We have been getting rain also, and it has helped in softening the ground and making it easier for me to turn over the soil, pull out weeds and fibrous weeds. I just hope I finish with the preparations soon, so like you, I can begin to do some planting.
    Strawberry shortcake, yum.

  9. What a lovely day, Dottie!
    I'd find it hard to resist those beautiful doves too :-)
    Your shortcake and sox have brightened up my day!

  10. HI Dottie..when I read this I thought of Anne of Green favorite story...your post is so simple and makes the ordinary sound so nice.

  11. Dottie,
    I loved taking a stroll with you through the store and the three doves are beautiful! My mouth is watering at the sight of that strawberry shortcake (ours won't be ripe until May!). Great Simple Pleasure today.


  12. I love going to shops like this, we have one near us and I love to go and watch the chicks, and bunnies. It is hard not to bring them home with me.
    Glad that your garden is being planted, I certainly have the fever to get everything in the ground, and growing.
    Cute socks, Dottie.
    Thank you for the memory of me going with my grandmother to one of those 99 cent stores.

  13. Hi Dottie,
    You have described my kind of day. I just love browsing and finding something for the grands is icing on the cake----strawberry shortcake,of course!!!
    God Bless

  14. What a wonderful day you had. *grin* I loved going to the five and dime stores when I was a little girl. That brought back lovely memories.

    Enjoy all your treasures you found!

    Blessings in Him<><

  15. A delightful post and equally delightful day. Those are the best kind.

  16. Sounds like my kind of day too! Love the socks and the strawberry shortcake looks delicious.

  17. Oh sweet Dottie....Your posts are always such sweet medicine for one's soul.



  18. It all sounds perfect! My favorite part is the cute summer socks! What cute feet. ;)

    Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
