Good Weekend...

I love a weekend that when it's over I feel as though I've accomplished most of the things I had on my list. This was one of those weekends. I think part of the reason for my success was that I managed to get out of my pajamas and get going before noon. That always helps. Some weekends I just sit around reading magazines or blogs until noon, then decide it's time to get going, then while I'm getting ready I might watch a couple saved shows and then before I know it, it's 1:00 or 2:00 o'clock in the afternoon and the day is almost over and I haven't really accomplished anything substantial! So on Saturday I was dressed and ready to go before 11:00 and my first stop was to the local nursery. I wanted to check to see if the lettuces were in yet. They weren't so instead I ended up buying my herbs, both for the back deck box and for my garden. Usually by the time I'm ready to buy them they have already sold out so I figured I better get them early. I bought Rosemary, Basil and Thyme and Parsley. I also planted some onion seeds, zucchini seeds, pumpkin seeds and cucumbers. Hopefully everything will come up and thrive until I can get them planted some time in May.

Here's where they will stay, in a bright windowsill, until it's warm enough to put them outside. I also bought some seeds to start in the sunny basement window to try to get a jump on things to go in the garden. Now that I have two plots I hope to plant some new things this year. I'm already thinking about what to plant but now I need to start thinking about how I want to set the plots up.

Since the pansies were in I decided to purchase a six-pack for my window box. It's nice to look out the window the see their bright little faces.

Saturday was a nice enough day that I was able to take the pups to the high school field for some frisbee but I didn't take the camera so no new pictures. They had fun though and as always, were so happy to get out and run.

Today was a different story. It's been raining most of the day, just a nice gentle rain. I wish it had waited until tomorrow but we do need the rain.

Since it wasn't a good day to get outside I decided to bake some Easter cookies.

This little tray will go to my Rainbows group tomorrow. The kids really like it when I bring in a snack for them. These little sugar cookies are pretty much bite sized. I bought these little cutters a couple months back but only used about half of them. They are all Easter or Spring related. So cute.

Somebody is hoping her Mimi brings her some Easter cookies!!

Oh wait, she's got no teeth. Maybe she can just suck the icing off!

Only 4 days of work this week and I'm thinking of taking one day off sick, maybe Tuesday or Wednesday. That'll make it an even shorter week. And the weather is supposed to be great this week with temps near 70 by the end of the week!! Woohoo!!

I'm sure that if Quinn won't/can't eat the cookies, she'll be happy to share them with someone she loves. I'm sorry to read that you're going to be sick on either Tuesday or Wednesday. Hope you feel better soon!
