What a Weekend!
(The pictures I'm posting today are of some of the flowers in my yard.)
For the first time in months, I was able to sleep in yesterday! I woke up around 7am, but stayed in bed until 10am! It was incredible, and long overdue! I hit the gym by noon, followed by quick shopping at Publix, Lowe's, Barnes & Noble, and Petsmart. At Lowe's, I bought the vegetables that I vowed to buy, and more. I currently have the following planted in my garden: tomatoes, banana peppers, jalepenos, squash, okra & green beans.
Last night I was invited to a house-warming party a few houses up from me. The new home owner is a former roommate of my friend Kevin. It was good to see Kevin & Joe, meet the new neighbor (Mark), and even meet another neighbor that I've lived three houses away from for 7 years, but never met!
This morning I had an 8 hour long catering event at Turner Studios. It went good, and I'll just say that I was well-rewarded for my time! Afterwards, I came home and decided to treat myself-- the weather was great and I took advantage of it. I pulled the table and chairs up to the front yard and sat in the sun, reading a book for two hours. The sprinkler was nearby, watering my "crop". It was so peaceful to be outside in the sun- reading a book, feeling the mist from the sprinkler and hearing Mrs. Nix's flag flapping in the wind across the street. Days like this really re-energize me.
