Sunny…but Cold!

It is gorgeously sunny out today but only about 3C this morning (frost on my windshield and my car doors were frozen shut) so I left Captain Jack at home, put a cozy sweater on and drove to work. There can be frost on the road in the shady spots when it’s that cool out and I don’t need to ride 6 minutes to work badly enough to risk hitting a patch of it.

I did get this awesome picture of a dewy, nearly frozen tulip in my garden while waiting for my car to heat up.

Then I thought I would take a couple more pictures of the things that are starting to bloom and blossom in the garden.

My big mass of onion chives starting to have buds.  Not pictured is my mass of garlic chives...but they don't have buds at this time.

A personal favourite of mine, my bleeding heart bush. LOVE!

I realized this morning that with all the leftovers that we have and the soup that I precooked on Sunday, I am done cooking for the week! And it’s only TUESDAY!  Awesome!

It’s a lovely day out, as mentioned, so I’m going to take Gracie for a longer walk in the park after work and then after dinner I have a quick errand to run and then I’ll probably work on weeding the flower bed.  It’s only about 1/4 done; instead of spending 8 hours weeding it and hurting my back and knees, I’ve been picking away at it on the nice days.  I think it’ll be done next week.

I heard this morning that hubby is going to be working all day on Saturday and probably well into the evening so I have an unplanned day all to myself, I’m nearly giddy with trying to figure out how to use it!  So far on the options list is the beach, a motorcycle ride, going for coffee, a long dog walk, a nap, some precooking, reading a book outside, working on the garden. I’m leaning towards beach with a coffee with the dog which knocks off three of my choices in one swoop!

I shall spend the rest of this week with my eye on the Day To Myself prize….while being a Renowned Monkey Wrangler…which I’ve decided is my new work title.  😉
