Good morning!!! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. Friday and Sunday I didn't do very much, Saturday I went to a friend's house and watched some movies.


Today its a rainy day, stormy actually and I'm loving it too. I don't have much planned this week. Tomorrow we get the van looked at and if its not too much to fix we leave for Chicago on Friday.


So tell us what you did over your weekend and what you did.

Last weekend we mostly worked in the yard. We re-built a flower bed and it was a lot of physical work. Plus, we've had rain non-stop for a week. The rain finally ended and now we're just plain HOT here. The humidity is an all-time high ;-( But the flower bed looks great!!

Hey Rita!


Hope you have a great trip to Chicago! I can't wait for you to tell us all about it; I know how much you love that city! ;-)


Last weekend I watched a few movies, too... it was just too hot to venture out for long. Triple digit temperatures and this southern humidity are driving me batty; I want out of the house, but that heat hits me when I open the door and I run back to the ac!


Hoping this weekend will be a bit cooler... I'd love to get back out in my yard some. I know I've got a library and grocery store run tomorrow morning; after that, I'm just goning to take the rest of the weekend as it comes. LOL

Oh, I bet it looks fantastic! I love hostas but have THE worst luck with them. :-(


My clematis, on the other hand, bloomed like mad this year.

I will. I'm really looking forward to it.


Its really hot here too. 112 heat index, but its actually just 97!!! Hot enough to keep me indoors for the rest of the day. But it'll give me a chance to get everything done before I leave, my mom too.

Thanks Brenda. I have pretty good luck with hostas - they really thrive in my garden. When we first moved to this
