Coconut Macroons & Polka Dot Watch

The craving for coconut macaroons must hit me each spring. I searched my recipe label on my sidebar to find the easy recipe I made last year. I noticed that I made them the first part of April.

Look at the light brown, semi-crispy bottom.........YUM! Moist on the inside and a tad crunchy on the outside.

DH hates coconut, so he does not eat these. The recipe only made six this time, so that is just perfect for one person. No, I did not eat them all the same day (it took two days). :)

Earlier in the week, I ordered this cute watch.

I have never had a cuff polka dot watch. I don't even own a watch.

Doesn't it look like a fun watch for summer?

Today I ordered this bright green polka dot shirt. I think it will go nicely with the blue watch.
I could have ordered a blue/white polka dot, but I decided this green would be more fun. Besides it is nearly impossible to match navy blues, so the watch would probably not have been the right shade for that classic combo. About three weeks ago I got a cute navy/white sweater set that I think will work with the watch. So right now I have two outfits that should go nicely with this bracelet watch. I got an email that it shipped out yesterday, so I should have it by the weekend. Maybe I will wear it for Easter,

Today one of my clients gave me this centerpiece (they had 2 extras because their lunch count went down so there were less tables in their banquet room)
The neat thing about this is the big package of wildflower seeds. I will plant some in one of my gardens this year. It will be exciting to see what I get from this big box.

I hope you are all having a great week. I have had a terrible chest/head cold since last Saturday. Today it seems a bit better, so I hope I will feel more normal tomorrow!


  1. I've had that same cold. I sound like a seal. Love your polka dots...isn't it fun shopping online? I do a major part of my shopping that way. Now if I could only get rid of this cough. Feel better. Have a great Easter.

  2. Balisha, the cough is the exact stage I am in now. I hope it does not last long!

    I do love buying online. In fact, I now buy 90% of my clothing on line. I just love ordering in my p.j.'s and having it delivered right to my desk at work. It's really way too easy--but I do only shop the extra good sales.

  3. I love that shade of green paired up with dark blue, and the gift was ideal for a flower lover like you !

  4. Hi Zoey!

    Guess what I got yesterday? A sunburn! Lesson learned, lowrider jeans and 6 hours of garden work are a bad combination! The 300 new bulbs I planted are up in force and I got terribly motivated!

    I am in zone 5, West of Columbus, Ohio, and I bravely put out snapdragons, pansies, dusty millers etc. I found small 3 packs of perennials for .99 at a local garden center and I bought almost everything they had. What a boon!

  5. love the polka dots...that centerpiece is really cute...what a great idea...hope your feeling better soon...
