Good Friday Morning!
Yesterday saw me complete the cleaning I was needing and wanting to get done before Saturday. A day early! I still need to put clean sheets on the bed that one or two of the girls will use, and put sheets on the air mattress that someone else will use. But that's easy peasy. The hard stuff is over! I even managed to make a run to the state store for wine.
And the weather was simply wonderful - about 60 in the morning and it barely made it to 80 during the day. I stretched out after lunch to read some and then doze a little and actually needed a blanket. It felt great! Colin came over for dinner (ribs and chicken on the grill, broiled asparagus and summer squash) and we ended up sitting around a fire. I hope this weather holds through the weekend.
Fletch and Colin picked a little bit from the garden for our dinner. The first ripe sun gold cherry tomatoes and the very first figs!!
Fletch and I also went over to Rob's garden and cut a few zinnias for the table. I did not go in his "compound" as it has very tall weeds and I'm nervous about deer ticks. Today at some point I will put on my wellies and go back over to see if I can pick some Roma tomatoes and some squash. And I'm hoping there will be more figs ripe for the weekend.
My Friday is blissfully free of conference calls this week. I have some work I'd like to do, but then I will tackle the grocery shopping. Saturday I will just need to make some salads to go with dinner and wipe down the bathrooms. Not bad! There should be time for knitting and stitching some.
Cheers to the weekend ahead - enjoy!
