A sense of accomplishment!
I accomplished pretty much everything I set out to do this weekend, and it was a pret-ty long list. Most important on the list was to revive my weekly walks with a friend, I'm determined to stop being such a hermit. We're both busier than we used to be, so it's just one day, but it's good to get out of the house and have girl talk and exercise all at the same time. I'm still going to exercise the rest of the week, but it's nice to switch things up.
I didn't do anything 'exciting' this weekend. I even passed up a boat ride. I am just now getting rid of the sunburn from Florida and I've been concerned about the number of burns I've gotten lately... but honestly, the boat was going to be full too... and I like a smaller crowd on boats. I'm a simple gal I guess. At home I can have a house full and be happy, because I love to entertain, but in a boat, space is limited. But... I did have dinner with a friend, and this afternoon I did my walk. I even chatted with a few people online. So I feel like I was social enough. Summer is coming and I know that means more things going on. Or it usually does.
In July I'm taking a roadtrip to Dallas to see Joan Jett! Yes THE JOAN JETT! I love Joan Jett. I Love Rock and Roll was the first album I ever bought -- and it was actually an album. I was even a member of her fan club. Guess I still am, I never cancelled. ;p Going with a couple of friends from high school... or actually one is my best friend from junior high. I try to keep my friendships alive if I can, and I'm lucky to have several long-term friendships. I think it's cool. After all, my best friend is my cousin, and we've known each other all our lives. That's as good as it gets.
Just came back from the garden... I have LOADS of tomatoes. Kristy is a happy girl. I've had tomatoes with every meal for the last two weeks. Slice them in half and grind some salt over them... YUM. That's all it takes, nothing better than a vine-ripened tomato... Oh lordy. I need a moment... The rest of the garden is a bit of a disappointment. I don't even look at the strawberry plant anymore... The lettuce was doing pretty well, then it started to bolt (fancy gardening term for 'going to seed') so I cut it back and I'm waiting to see if it leafs out again. I still have some lettuce in the fridge though, so I call it a success. I wish I had more land... I don't have enough room to have a proper garden. I think that blackberry I planted has sprouted. Or maybe it's a weed. It's so hard to tell at first...
Hope everyone had a great weekend!
