Can't help but wish I was going to Minnesota with my in-laws to meet up with some family and hit up a Twins game and spend some time at the Mall of America. But because of some time off issues and conflicts, hubby and I will be staying back home.
But this weekend will be a laid back, relaxing one...or so I hope! Seems like every time I plan a relaxing weekend, it turns into a weekend of unexpected work.
It's the simple things in life that I enjoy. The rush of the weekend, trying to get everything done so that we don't have to spend our weekday evenings working out butts off. The unexpected family "gathering." The good times spent talking, laughing, and enjoying a few drinks. The quiet walk around the farm taking pictures of the natural beauty. Reading a book on the deck in my new outdoor rocking chair. The nights that hubby says, let's feed and then spend the night at home doing nothing.
As of this last week, I've been "watching" my garden "grow." Seems like it's taking forever, but I only planted it on Sunday! I'm ready to pull weeds and water (which I might not have to do since we moved to Washington State, or so it seems).
Potatoes, cucumbers, beans, radishes, kohlrabies, and sunflowers take up the middle, odd rows. Peas and green peppers are on the side lines. And the spot behind the garden shed that I will not be using will possibly be filled with pumpkins by the neighbor boy.
Enjoy the peaceful, cool weekend! :)
