a really good day
These beauties were found at the grocers this morning. The yellow mums are so lovely that I decided I needed more fresh flowers in my home. These are on the kitchen table so I get to enjoy them often.
Please excuse the crappy photo, I was tired, and didn't pay much attention when I snapped the photo. This is the composter that my brother and sister in law gave me at the holidays. It was finally nice enough outside and I had enough energy to work on it. I'm very excited. It even came with a little pamphlet explaining how composting works and how to get the most of your composter. :)
Before I went to the grocers this morning, I went to a local big box home improvement store looking for a seed starting tray. I found just what I was after, plus a whole lot more! I can't wait to plant those dahlias as well as the other things I found.
I spent several hours working in the gardens. Doing a little preemptive weeding and ordering of borders, as well as picking up broken limbs. While I was out there I found a few surprises...
And I'm finishing up the evening with a little laundry and this...
a few apple cinnamon and a few blueberry (they came from a packet not homemade - but that is okay). This will give me a nice little bit of breakfast for the week.
Tomorrow begins another week of work, but I have something really wonderful to look forward to at the end of the week. This will hopefully motivate me to persevere - remember that? - through the week.
I hope you have enjoyed this lovely spring-ish day and have a wonderful week ahead.
