Knock me over with a feather

It's foggy and rainy out today and I was just thinking geez it would be nice to stay inside and snuggle all day, especially since Gabe thought 5 am was morning today.  

Mike gets home from work a little late this morning but I didn't think anything of it because it's foggy out so I figure he just took his time.  Well he comes in drops his stuff I mention some emails I got and then he whispers to Gabe to wait by the door.  He goes back out in the rain, I hear the car door open and close and he comes back.  In one arm are donuts and OJ and the other is behind his back. 

He surprised me with a brand new Orchid plant.  I LOVE Orchids, they have been my favorite forever.  I used to have several plants and I'm actually pretty good at getting them to rebloom but the didn't survive several moves we made all in a short period of time.  I've been sad that I don't have any anymore and I was thrilled to get one.  He said it was Happy Mel day :D  So there was no reason just a thoughtful gift from my hubby. 

Now of course I have to make sure that Gabe doesn't decide "play" with my Orchid, or eat it or feed it to the cats.  I wonder if I have any Orchid potting mixture left?

Day one

I suppose everyone needs a day one in their life right?  Well this is my day one.  I've been prompted by a few people to do this so I'm doing it.  (So you better be out there reading).  

I honestly have no idea how to start a blog so this is what I'm doing.  I'm just going to tell you folks about stuff I like or don't like and you'll listen to me and tell me how wonderful, witty, and funny I am.  Got it?  

Now that we have some ground rules let's give this a shot!  So start with some comments about how much you like me and how I should blog.  If there's something you want me to write about tell me that too (though I might just ignore you anyhow ;p).
