Really Random Thursday, 3/24/16

What has your week been like?

It's spring break here. Saturday morning it was nice enough to go outside.
Gotta love bubbles. I never get tired of them.

Instagram threatened to make changes and so a lot of people were trying out another app called Ello. I wanted to at least claim my name, Live a Colorful Life. However, to this point, I find it very clunky, slow, and so much harder to navigate. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that Instagram leaves a good thing alone!

My friend, Debbie, a fantastic gardener, designed a succulent garden for the pot by our front door. I told her she needed to be on retainer to make sure I don't kill everything in it, as that is a definite possibility.
I've been enjoying hosting Week 12 at 52 Quilters, both on the blog and on Instagram. Stop by if you have a chance.
Yesterday it was time for our spring pedicure. The week before Easter, daughter-in-law Christa, granddaughter Charlotte and I get the first coat of polish on our toes after a long winter in socks. We always make a stop at Starbucks beforehand. We were joking that we need to start keeping track of all the variations of "Charlotte" that Starbucks is able to come up with. This year it was "Charoleste."
I saw this somewhere. Probably Instagram. If you're a quilter, you know this is true.
And this is a good one to end this week's edition of Really Random. Thanks, Susan (@yardgrl60).

Bubbles are always a hit - for kids as well as adults. Same with water balloons!

I really like the succulent pot.

It is a special day out for the gals to get their pedicures - happy faces and happy toes.

Nice to see a little green grass. Ours is covered with 20" of snow. Springtime in the Rockies.

Love the pretty succulent garden; I am so bad about over-watering! My toes are still bare and boring, but it's too cold to let them out of their cozy socks. Maybe I'll make it a reward for getting caught up on my school work. Or another way to procrastinate!

Love your post. I hope IG stays the same, too. Love the quote at the end.

Nice quote at the end, and fun to see your face on 52: keep it to the sun!
