A Really Nice Day

Hello!! I had a really nice day today. I went and exercised, it's a miracle. I have set a goal to exercise twice a week. I go on Tuesday and Thursday. Today was nice because after I exercised I came home and cleaned out my van AND VACUUMED!! Then planted flowers in flower pots and created an inviting porch. Sandra at SMALL HOUSE invited us to create a cheerful front porch and possibly share it. So, here is what I did today with my porch:
I got this cute pot holder from My husband's grandma...the poor lady. She is in her 80's and her son had to move her in with his family. This past weekend they went through everything to take it to the DI. I was able to gather a few things I would enjoy.

The best part of Spring for me is being able to plant flowers.

You get to see our dog posing for the camera. He is a cute dog, but I'm really not a fan.

Well, that is the end of the tour of my front porch. It is ready for Spring, but we are missing some chairs to sit on to enjoy the outside. Hopefully we will get some soon.

I love your flower pot holder. Butterflies are some of my favorite things. Your front porch looks VERY inviting. :)

Janice....this is the first time I've seen the outside of your house. I really need to come see it!

CUTE pot holder! That was a lucky thing to get that.

Have a great day.

The flower holder is sweet! My front porch is very small with no place to sit in chairs. This is one of the really bad things about living in a subdivision like ours.
Thank you for your nice comment. I am doing a little better tonight. Hugs, Bobbi Jo

I love your flowers and your new porch decor :D
I am jealous, we have been so busy around here I have not had time to plant any spring flowers yet - I am just itching to get out in the yard.
Yours looks lovely!
