but it's not a pity party here in The Humble Bungalow.
I jumped into the shower and let the hot water run and steam my sinuses
the kettle was put on
and tea was poured by Mr. HB.
I am sipping my second cup of tea...
planning to do a few necessary errands...
we are almost out of tissues and the fridge needs restocking.
Saturday morning and the weekend is about to begin.
The vegetable seeds were planted last weekend.
In the right raised bed are sweet peas
in the left we planted peas
yellow beets, swiss chard, zucchini
clematis is in back to lure the bees.
Fortunately we have a garden full of mason bees
a heavy clay based soil that cracks
and a shingle house
which provide many crevices for these bees to live has turned out to be a bonus.
These Mason bees have been in our garden since we moved in 30 years ago.
the lilies are thriving
native camas in the park
a sea of blues
I ordered some black pants from Lands End and bought the large
but when I put them on I was swimming in them!
I have re ordered the medium and hope that they fit better.
I wonder if perhaps the walking and mindful eating is paying off?
(one can hope!)
Pepper loves to sleep on our bed and she sleeps on my side at night.
My legs get cramped sometimes trying to accommodate her furry form.
When the bed is made she sleeps on my side too!
If I snuggle under the duvet this afternoon I am sure she'll be at my side.
This weekend will be a slow paced one so that I can rest up and get rid of this cold.
I am seeking comfort in the simple things
a warm mug of tea
a soft sweater
some magazines to lose myself in
(The Post Mistress)
a blanket to wrap myself up in
perhaps my Steiff bear will join me in bed...
I think I'll skip my walk.
I may buy a bar of really good chocolate
I have not had any chocolate for what seems like months
but in fact may be weeks.
(I'll allow myself one or two squares at the most)
Tell me all the exciting things that you'll be doing this weekend
as I 'll be living vicariously through your adventures!
