isn't she lovely...

ranunculus...latin for 'little frog'. hmmmm...i guess that's a fitting end of the week post for a princess. :)

so...yesterday i received my healthcare spending account check in the mail...and my mind instantly started trying to figure out what i could spend it on. being the 'gadget girl' that i first thought was the new kindle2. after i twittered daughter wanted to know what was so great about it. what's so great about it? it's a gadget! it has buttons! what else is there?!

seriously. the pluses...obtain books instantly...not bulky or heavy...don't have to find a place to store all the books i buy (which mrchazman will love). then of course...the daughter reminded me that SHE is in the publishing industry...and all these books in print equals 'job security'. oops! scratch the kindle2!

now...i'm thinking i'll probably get a flash for my camera. i'll be starting a photography class in a couple of weeks...and i would love to be able to have them instruct me in the proper way to use it. *i've been thinking of buy a flash for a year...and haven't done it yet.

of course...i really don't have to buy anything. there's nothing i really need. little things make me happy. seeing the ranunculus above puts a smile on my face. the color reminds me of sunshine...and what's not to love about that.

this weekend our weather is spring-like and the temps will be in the 80s. with my sunglasses & gardening hat on & a glass of iced tea or wine in hand...i'll play in my one of the many books i already own...and just relax. that sounds perfect!
