It's a good Saturday...

Nowhere to be this morning...no papers to write...no games to go to...no appointments or meetings or functions. Just me...a cup of coffee...and a cool, breezy Saturday morning. I'm happy.

So I'm sitting here sipping my coffee and working up the gumption to go out and get my new veggie plants into the ground. I planted a bunch of seeds a while back but then it began to rain, a lot...and none of them came up. Not one. I'm assuming they rotted from too much moisture? So no zucchini, no cucumber and no sunflowers. The only things that came up from that planting were the nasturtiums. And they're doing great! Not to mention the four tomatoes and five peppers I planted a long while ago. They've hung in there...thank goodness.

Today I need to plant three zucchini (yes, I am crazy, thankyouverymuch), three cucumber, a half flat of marigolds, some chives, sage, thyme, lemon thyme and lemon balm. Then I'll plant some seeds for the beans and the lettuce. Should be a nice little garden one of these days.

Later this afternoon I'm meeting a long-time friend for lunch. She moved away to Reno a few years back and we try to get together when she comes to town to visit her daughter. Today we'll meet for a delicious salad at our favorite local Italian restaurant. Good food and lots of conversation with an old friend...sounds like a nice afternoon.

Until then...I will finish up my many loads of camp laundry! I'm almost done!

What have YOU got going on today? Make it fun!

Surprisingly, my calendar is "empty" for today! WooHoo!

I think I'll replant some beets that the neighbor's rabbits love so well.

So happy for you for a "down" day to do what you want. Those are awesome and energizing.
Today I have my two little guys and they are making my day pretty good too.
Happy Memorial Day dear friend.

Is your semester over? I've been so wrapped up in Graduation (and now out of state company) that I'm almost completely out of the loop of where everyone else is in their life! I just popped in for a quick blog/friend fix! I really need to be planting my potatoes and tomatoes, but it's one event after another. It all ends Thursday...

This day little was planned, but turns out so much happened. Makes me feel like the more I plan the more I can anticipate. :-)

out for breakfast, some window shopping, goofed off, met my friend for dinner, avoided a few mommy fires.

Tomorrow we are off to church and driving to meet friends out of town.
