It’s going to be a long week waiting for the holiday weekend that’s coming. Like waiting for water to boil, watching it will make it seem longer, and I don’t know that I can help myself from counting the seconds. This weekend went by altogether too quickly, and I’m anxious to get a new one underway, even before today is over. Yep. I’m doomed.
I’ve been spending a lot of time in my gardens (and showcasing random flowers here), and Ole’s been working on our new compost bin, which is officially complete as of yesterday. In fact, all of our major yard projects are complete plants planted and weeds pulled. The first year we lived here we didn’t even scratch the surface of our yard projects until Memorial Day Weekend. Having them completely finished and behind us is freeing. All there is left to do is water, fertilize, prune and harvest. My tomato plants have their first blooms, as do the strawberries. The rest of them are going to be a while before anything major happens, but I’m excited to see everything grow.
We had a holdover from last week on this week’s menu. The breakfast for dinner never happened, partially due to work-related reasons and partially because the kids and I ate all the blueberries before we got that far into the week. I have restocked the blueberries and moved it up to Tuesday this week. I’m pretty sure I can’t eat all of them before then. However, I have several tiny hands to help me in case I decide to try. We did get to the bacon-wrapped beef tenderloin and the fingerling potatoes, though, and I’m excited to eat the leftovers tomorrow.
