My Weekend Recap

Spring makes its own statement, so loud and clear that the gardener seems to be only one of the instruments, not the composer. ~Geoffrey B. Charlesworth

Busy weekend.

It was gorgeous out, so I spent most of the time clearing billions of leaves from my gardens. And, no, I'm not exaggerating. DH decided to de-thatch the lawn last evening, so there was much raking involved... though it made for lots of "homemade straw" to use as mulch in my veggie garden when I can finally plant (probably another month).

We walked a lot, too, and my knee held up. So far, so good! I still can't kneel on it, or squat without pain, but I can bend it almost full range, and walking is a breeze. Baby steps.

I'd planned on planting my cold crops, but didn't get a chance. Maybe today (it's going to be in the 70s) -- we'll see. The temps are going to drop again tomorrow, so if I want to get out and do stuff today is the day.

In the "cute notes from DD" file, I've added this:

And in the "public grammar errors" file, I've added this (it really irritated me -- who knows why this is wrong?):

I got one set of edits back on "Now and Forever" but haven't had a chance to go through them yet (the curiosity is killing me). In the "good news" column, she said she laughed through much of it, so that's a start!

That was my weekend... how was yours?


You Are a Pink Martini

You're eager to lend a sympathetic ear and likely to develop a deep connection with people.

You are an idealistic and romantic person. You have a very clear idea of how you'd like the world to be.

It hurts you to see anyone or anything in pain. You are thin-skinned and empathetic.

You are very sensitive. You tend to get easily hurt, and you have learned to protect your heart.

Um .... not so much. It's maybe 25% right. Maybe. Partly because I couldn't answer the way I would on some... like the "skiing" question. They didn't have, "I wouldn't be caught dead on a ski slope." ::shrugs::

Ref: sign
LOL. How else can you pre-pay, but in advance?

We had a full weekend. Mowing, trimming, and cleaning up before a big storm moved in.

In the meantime, we had chicks!

re: sign -- YES! Sheesh... redundant much? ::shakes head::

And YAY on the chicks!! I'm so jealous. I swear, some day I'm going to show up on your doorstep, bag in hand. *G*

I was wishing warmer weather for you! Glad you're finally going to get it.
The sign is hilarious! And sadly I think I saw something similar at a gas station recently.

Wishing you a great day outside!

My weekend was quiet, spent the time reading and working on the quilt.

LOL at the sign.
