It was a nice long week for me. And as bad a long weeks sometimes sound, I wasn’t bothered by it one bit. I got plenty done at home, with school, and also spent some time on the road. I am happy to say that I have my car back, and since everything has been taken care of, hopefully I won’t be without it anytime soon. Yes, getting my car was the big highlight of my week. I really missed driving it.
The week wasn’t all about productivity and getting things accomplished though, one thing I didn’t get to do was tend to my yard. It is that time of the year when weeds need to be pulled, plants need to be fertilized, and flowers have to be planted. I have all three to do and have only gotten a small start at it, and that was two weeks ago. In my defense, it rained a lot this week, so not working outside was not my fault. I’m not sure what the weather is looking like on Sunday yet, but probably that is when I will get the rest of it taken care of if I am not able to finish it all today. Today is definitely gonna be a busy one!
So, a little bit more about my week, not that it was super exciting or anything like that. Sunday, after mowing and taking pictures in the vineyard, we headed to the city for an afternoon out. My guy and the boy went to a shooting competition. I dropped them off and went to Kohl’s. I have been buying up exercise leggings like they are going out of style! Before this last week I had only two pairs, can you believe it? ONLY two pairs, now I have three more, and since they were all on sale, plus I had a $40 free coupon, I didn’t pay much at all for them. These days it seems I spend more time in gym clothes than regular clothes, so at least I won’t look exactly the same every single day. It is good to have variety in ones wardrobe, am I right?
After that we had dinner out and then home for a nice relaxing evening on the back deck. Sunday’s weather was by the far the best of the whole week. The day ended looking something like this.
Monday it rained and we did lots of schoolwork. Tuesday it sprinkled, was humid, and we did lots of schoolwork. Also on Tuesday, my boy wasn’t feeling that well – he had an orthodontist appointment the day before in which new brackets were added to his teeth, plus an allergy overload made it a pretty miserable day for him. Come Wednesday he felt better and we hit the road to Memphis. It rained. There was some window shopping, a lunch date, and the afternoon spent with a friend. Also this was the day my car came home with me. The clouds parted for a few hours, I made it back in time for a gym class, and then finished that day at the boy’s gymnastics class, and then settled in for the night before it started raining again. And did it rain!
Thursday, there was some sunshine and lots of schoolwork, plus laundry and ballet. I saw our back deck skink and I think he is getting pretty used to us. I almost leaned right up on him while out taking pictures and he didn’t budge one bit.
And now for today. I am just getting started with it, but there is lots to do – inside and out. My current bloom situation looks like this:
The azalea is bright and beautiful, and the dandelions are fuzzy and everywhere. The ground is pretty wet, so probably perfect for starting on some of those weeds. But, if I wait until after school, the boy can get out there and do some of it with me… Great idea! I best be getting at it.
