The weather seems to be in a holding pattern – hot, humid, with intermittent and at times heavy rain showers. There was not much time outdoors this weekend. This remains the forecast for the week, and though I am not thrilled to admit it – I am really ready for a change in the weather. Cooler would be nice, less humid even better! And, it would make it enjoyable to sit outdoors…just sayin’.
A quiet Friday night to usher in the weekend seemed like the perfect plan. It was indoors – the air-conditioned indoors!
There was Olympics monitoring, coupled with some knitting and some spinning (also indoors).
There was some reading – I am about halfway through To Kill A Mockingbird. And I started a new audiobook – The Secrets of Mary Bowser by Lois Leveen, and it is so GOOD!
We have also arrived at the Season of Tomatoes. All things tomatoes. All the time tomatoes. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner tomatoes.
It is also that time of the year when the garden beds and the lawn are both looking a little tired and worn out. However, these photos from a couple of weeks ago are going to tide me over in January, February, and March when there is no color and it is bitterly cold out. The best thing ever was this little bag of seeds we planted this year. They have provided an almost non-stop, 4′ tall, wall of color and I am so happy to report that we have seen hundreds of bees this year. There is nothing better than watching them move from flower to flower to flower. I have only seen one monarch this year, which is horribly sad – however, there have been a variety of other butterflies on the Butterfly Bush as well as some very large bees!
There you have the Cliff Notes of my weekend, Gentle Reader. How was your weekend?
