3 day weekend

Well, after this glorious Memorial Day Weekend, I found myself wishing every weekend was a 3 day weekend. It was just what we needed.

First off, Wally got neutered Thursday. I had been dreading this for months. . .and was expecting the worst. It ended up going much better than expected. He was such a champ and is practically back to normal. PTL!

I also got to throw my lovely friend Alison, whose expecting twin girls in July, a baby shower this weekend. I wouldn't have been able to pull it off without the help of my MIL and many friends. It was really fun. I just hope she enjoyed it as much as we all did. Now I just can't wait to meet those precious girlies.

The rest of the weekend was spent on the porch, eating, talking and laughing into the wee hours of the night. We got to go listen to a whole orchestra of jazz Sunday night in our tiny downtown square. It was perfect. We got to sleep in on a Monday. That's how every Monday's should start. I think I would have a much better week if I could start off well rested.

Yesterday, the skies were blue and there was a lovely breeze blowing, so we decided to go to the mountains for a picnic. Wally joined us and was in heaven. We have a favorite spot that's full of trails, lots of runners, dog walkers, and a little pond. We laid our blanket down and didn't get up for a few hours. It was bliss.

I'm already looking forward to this weekend. I'm planning to plant my porch flowers and herbs. I've said that every week for the past month, but I'm serious this time. I don't think I can take it looking so bare another minute. I hope you all have a great week!
