We were lucky enough to have another beautiful weekend. It’s cold overnight and in the sixties in the days.
Friday, Biker Witch and I had lunch and did a bit of shopping. It was such a great day! And Wizard went to see his brother and also had a good time.
Saturday, we took advantage of the lovely weather and went to the garden shop to spend our house payment on flowers for the front planter. Then we came home and planted them. We brought Maggie out to hang with us and she was a good girl. When a salesman came by, she held her sit-stay and just watched. That’s exactly what I want. Then Maggie spotted her brand new boyfriend, a French bulldog named Boston. He and his mom live across the street and this was our first formal meeting. OMG Boston is a sweetie! They were really cute and Boston is so friendly! They left to go for a walk. Just when Maggie thought her day couldn’t get any better and she’d plopped onto her belly to watch us, the next door neighbor she already knows came over to chat. Maggie ran right up to her for some pets and love. She’s so ridiculous with her happy wiggles. Despite managing Maggie’s busy social life, we actually got all the flowers planted. We just need a couple more to fill in, but it’s 90% done. It helps since the rest of the front is just some bark spread on the ground. The flowers add some color and warmth.
Sunday, Wizard and I decided to go back to the garden store to buy four plants. Two big ones to start the back planter, and two little flowers to finish the front. We were basically going to spend to spend a few dollars. I think our first mistake was getting a rolling cart instead of a basket. We ended up filling the cart for the back planter and spent roughly another house payment again, LOL! Okay I’m exaggerating. Sadly, we did not come home with the two flowers for the front and probably only an fraction of what we need for the back. But one step (and dollar!) at a time. Besides, this is the fun part.
I also ran to Trader Joes just because I like to go there. Then I made some sugar free granola that tastes like crunchy cardboard. Once it’s completely cooled, it might taste better than I think, but ultimately, I don’t mind it plain and will eat it. This recipe gives me a base to begin tweaking over time. I eat sugar, I just don’t want it in foods I eat for breakfast.
So that was my weekend, how was yours?
