Today I'm happy that I bought gas on Thursday. It was 3.009 per gallon then, my first time paying more than $3 a gallon...but now it's jumped to something like $3.27!

     I enjoyed loads of delicious flowers today as well. Thinking in terms of minimizing gas usage meant that I stopped at Gerten Greenhouses on my way back from Eloise Butler. 9 am on a Saturday morning on Mother's Day weekend...and the place was an absolute madhouse. But I wandered through those rows of pansies, violas, and petunias and literally drooled over the gorgeous hues (did keep my mouth closed, though!) Got me Nierembergia and Coleus, but my buying and planting in earnest must wait until my Burpee petunias arrive.

     Immensely enjoyed a phone call with my mom that lasted over an hour.

     And just finished savoring some more of my first batch of cold delicious Emerald Soup for this summer. Yum, yum, yum!

Gas is only $3.27 there? It's almost $3.50 a gallon here. I hate the gas companies. There is absolutely no reason for this price hike other than that they want to line their pockets.

*sigh*

I wouldn't just blame the gas companies--taxes, demand, and environmental regulations add to the mess as well.

What I can't figure, is why living within 2 miles of an oil refinery means the local gas is NOT cheaper than elsewhere in the metro area. =P

You caught up to us out here in CA. I did not think your gas would jump so quickly.

Huh, that's interesting! Can't help wondering why it jumped so much.

hmmm
well, on my way back from Mikey's dr.s appt Friday, the gas light in the van came on (for the first time ever!) -- we filled up after church yesterday, and at $3.34 a gallon, it cost almost $62 for a full tank! ouch! thankfully, i'm a good recluse and I don't use the van much during the week...at least that tank should last us a month or more...

we enjoyed our time with your parents yesterday...though the boys definitely dominated us at Cranium! it would have been a complete wipe-out if they hadn't been caught on the "star performer" category for quite a long time...heehee...you should have seen your dad acting out "mermaid"...actually, there was quite a few laughs with that category!

i hope you have a delightful week...we miss you and love you and are praying that God will comfort you and will cover you with His peace and joy.

*hugs*

Re: hmmm
It's nice to find out the gas light actually works, isn't it? I don't want to have to say how many times I've seen it on my car. But 'ouch' is right! Hopefully it will last for you.

My mom told me last night about that mermaid impersonation. Must've been a riot!

Thanks, Christina. *hugs* You have a great week too!
