    We’ve used the long weekend to get started on a yard project. For the past 2 days we have dug up the flower bed along the front of our house. After 25 years of re-applying mulch as needed, the flower bed was becoming a mountain and the boxwoods were huge and not nicely shaped any more. The plants are now gone and a never-pruned cedar tree has been chopped down. The tiller has been run through the bed and we are off to get supplies. It’s terribly hot and humid here, even early in the morning, so we quit work at 1pm. Tomorrow I will work on cutting down a trio of out of control creeping jasmine!

      The yard work never ends!

    Your weekend sounds nice and relaxing (except for the butt kicking in the gym) Sometimes it is nice to just hang out and relax. That is what we are doing this weekend. My husband and I went on a bike ride together- something we don’t get to do often. It was really nice. We will have a nice dinner home and then a movie with some cuddling. I love long weekends!!

    Weekend is going great so far, other than having our long ride postponed because of rain – but that is what a Monday off is for 😀

    Kitties are the best snugglers.

      I hope it didn’t rain for the 4th and you were able to ride. It was GORGEOUS in Oregon all weekend!

    whoa, jealous of your icecream! Looks GOOD! Do you have free weights at home to come back to if you want to do your run outside?

      I do have some free weights here at the house, so that is an option when I want to run too.

    We went to a German Tennis Tournament. The night before they had a little get together at the courts for others to practice and non-club members to try it out. There was a pizza oven and the pizza was amazing! Sunday was the tournament (the Hub took part) lots of yummy salad, and homemade German cakes (may have had a bit too much)! I went home halfway through for the young one to take a nap and I ran 2 miles on the treadmill, then we were back up for the rest of the night! Monday, Eric got called to do work, so the boys and I hung out here, relaxed, enjoyed the sunshine and that was about it! That icecream is looking pretty tempting. I am going to make some banana soft serve and use my ‘yet to be opened’ Wax Orchards Orange Chocolate Syrup!!! Mmmmm!!

      I think it would be hard to pass up all that yummy sounding food! Sounds like a great weekend to me.
