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.
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. 😉
