overwhelming ...

you know, I'm not sure that super lazy weekend was worth it. I needed it. but the amount of work I have to do outside is UN FREEKING BELIEVABLE! The paths themselves are going to take a day ... or two. Not to mention all the cleanup from all the storms; the flowers that have been knocked down, ravaged, beaten up ... past their prime. But it's amazing how much can be accomplished when you put your mind to it. I'll just have to make sure I drink a TON of water and take lots of rests. A friend of Barry's from work and her hubby are coming for dinner Saturday. So it's time for strawberry tomatoes drizzled with balsamic vinegar, mushroom caps with cheddar and sante fe dressing, spicy beer-can chicken, macaroni/tuna salad, my famous green salad. I'm looking forward to this. It's supposed to be a gorgeous weekend ... so ENJOY!

lazy, lazy weekend

I can't believe I didn't spend ANY time outside this weekend! I barely left the house for anything. Of course the weather didn't help. Yesterday wasn't bad but instead of gardening ... I read for the better part of 12 hours ... I don't think I've done that in about 20 years ... It was wonderful! Today was just too damned hot and humid. So I hid inside with the a/c on and kinda puttered around. lots of stuff I should have done but didn't. Oh well. I'll do some work during the week and next weekend.
I think we're about to have a thunderstorm....

finally, a fabulous weekend!

What a gorgeous weekend! Did some tanning, replaced some flowers in flower boxes, just enjoyed the weekend. Goregous weather ... Sunday wasn't bad ... started yucky, got a lot better. I still can't believe I was able to take the time to act like a lizard. Of course Barry's a lot better at it than I am.

We finally changed out the watering wands. And replaced some flowers. and mowed the lawn. and primped. and weeded. and just enjoyed the gardens for a change. did some work. but it was just an enjoyable, relaxing weekend. it's about time....

Oh yeah, make sure you check your window boxes and hanging baskets , especially if they're cocoa hulls. Even if they get rain. A day of sunshine and warm temps and they're likely to need more water. Yeesh.

Have a great one!
