"You can't help respecting anybody who can spell TUESDAY, even if he doesn't spell it right; but spelling isn't everything. There are days when spelling Tuesday simply doesn't count."

Welcome to Ruby Tuesday and even Pooh Bear has something to say about Tuesdays - and truly there are days when spelling doesn't count, when nothing really counts except the pure joy of living.  I hope you are at the stage of your life when you realize that there are so many things that don't add anything to your life and don't count at all - let them go and enjoy the things that bring you joy.

Enjoy your Tuesday when it arrives for you (or you are ready to face your day) Tuesday is a special day - but then so is each day.

A very crisp spring morning in my lovely city today and the day holds the promise of sunshine.   I was blessed this morning to be awake to see the full moon set and the sun rise - both equally beautiful in their own way.

The longer days and more sunshine is lovely and has served to remind me that I have big pots to get ready for planting of my tomatoes - I grew a lovely plant last year called "Pink Pearl" and by purchasing those plants funds were raised for Breast Cancer Research.  I did well with my plant last year and will try to buy the same variety as the flavour was lovely and it is a smallish plant and easy to maintain in a pot.  As you know I am not a keen gardener, but do like to grow a few things to eat.  I try hard to grow herbs and my parsley is doing well and my spinach is lovely (sweet small leaves suitable for cooking and salads.)

I really like gardening in pots - easy to weed and can be moved around if the location is not suitable - I was able to move my tomato to a cooler spot during last summer's heat.

Pooh Bear and the tales from the 100 Acre Wood are full of pearls of wisdom and I enjoy them very much - even though I no longer have little ones to share these stories with I still look at them and recall earlier days.  I love children's books and this year I was able to give Henry books for his birthday that he just loves - a nice feeling when you choose books for a child and they are enjoyed.  (I did have some help from his Mum - thank you Melinda).

I must confess that I often buy children's books if they take appeal to me and try to find the right child to gift the book to.

A couple of Christmases ago I gave Henry - "Where the Wild Things Are" - a book loved by my girls and I actually bought myself a replacement copy.

I have lots of favourites - among them "The very Hungry Caterpillar" - and I am sharing a  picture of a lovely birthday cake which I love.

Have a wonderful day and enjoy time with books and time in your own "Hundred Acre Wood" take time to nurture and nourish your soul - find a child to read a book with, watch a movie with and to laugh with.  Be silly sometime and laugh at yourself.

Have a wonderful day - I plan on finding a spot out of the wind and with some sunshine, taking my book and my coffee and going off into my own "Hundred Acre Wood".

Love and hugs,
