This will be a busy week, as I finally am able to get my yard in shape for summer. I look forward to many trips to buy both mulch and flowers and lots of time spent outside. Memorial Day weekend is my planting weekend, based on likelihood of frost and even though I see morning temperatures that will be in the fifties, I think it is finally safe. Until then, I have been buying some unique flowers at the grocery store to get my flower fix. Sometimes, I buy inexpensive flowering greens, meant for filler in bouquets and place it in a few colored mason jars for a sweet and simple statement. The latest have bright green leaves, with subtle, tiny yellow flowers. I have no idea what they are, but I like their pop of color.
We spent the afternoon yesterday with my parents, celebrating a belated Mother's Day, as well as Melissa's graduation. We had a nice lunch and I even took a yummy cake to mark the occasion. They are doing well as can be expected for their age and are still walking a few miles each day. Doesn't my mother look great for eighty one?
I am looking forward to my book club this week. Between vacations and family visits, I have missed two months in a row and look forward to our book discussion this month. I am about one third of the way through The Light Between The Oceans and am finding after a slow start, I am enjoying it. One of the things I like most about being in a book club are the book club choices. They are books I would never pick up on my own, but ones I end up enjoying immensely.
