1. Going to a convention in Tucson with my younger son this weekend. 2. We have had a number of very hot days. 3. Slow. Spring semester grades were all due Tuesday; graduation ceremonies this weekend. All my June 1 fiscal stuff is done. Went in for a few hours on Wednesday to return library books, etc. Took off today through Tuesday.

I got this idea from my mom!  She just visited. That's too funny.

I've been lazy this year.  I bought some hanging flowers for outside planters and boxes.  I snipped off the top plastic parts, including the hook.  But kept them in their plastic bowls and just put them in the planters without getting new soil.  That's lazy.  Smile

My mom does this too lol Laughing

Regina,

I love a mix of annuals and perenninals too,  for the same reasons and we are currently enjoying two beautiful vases of my roses on the dinning room table.

Yes, looking forward to the weekend.  We're all going away for Sat. and Sun, back home Mon. for bbq, tennis and pool.

Yes, it's hot today.  About 75. 

Same slow pace here at home.  Groceries, cleaning and cooking done.  Tomorrow I'll help chaperone a field trip. ;)

I did pots and some daylillies out back a few weeks ago. Yesterday I dug up an oddly shaped patch of land that is difficult to mow and put in a huge hydrangea, some peonies catmint, and impatiens. I also added some impatiens to the side bed. As the trees mature, the areas of partial/full sun are changing. Today I added 3 more hydrangeas to the front landscaping and some hostas under the trees. Next I'll add hostas under the trees in the side yard and we'll be good to go. I favor perennials b/c I'm lazy and I love cut flowers in the house: so I have a lot of roses, hydrangeas and peonies. But I always do a few baskets of annuals and usually some vinca and impatiens for added color somewhere. We're kicking around the idea of a sprinkler system--would make upkeep so much easier!!!!

On Wednesdays we wear pink.

Yes but I have no plans and I'm happy about that.  No not hot, but it's finally in the 50's & heading towards the 60's. Last week of school, busy.

Yes.  Not sure yet.

Getting hot there yet?

Sometimes.  It varies right now...this time of year it can be in the 30's in the morning and in the 90's a few hours later.  I've stopped trying to keep up.LOL

Busy, slow or normal week at work?

Slowish, for us.

Always :)  I've got to prune the living heck out of two of my lilacs.  That will take most of one full day. The rest of the weekend I plan to sew. I have several projects I want to crank out and I spent all day last Sunday sewing and it was seriously awesome, so I'd like to repeat that.

It's 79 (feels like 83) today, so naturally I had to mow the whole freaking lawn. I'd have put it off til Friday (cooler weather) but it's supposed to rain and it was looking seriously shaggy already.  Since I did the whole freaking thing, I didn't bother with the edging.  THAT can wait til Friday.

It's a fairly normal week now that the election busy season has wound down.
