It’s a Beautiful Day in Our Neighborhood

We returned from Mayberry this afternoon and I have been enjoying a lovely evening in my garden. The wind that has blown so consistently over the past few weeks appears to have calmed down, the sun is shining and the temperature is hovering in the high 70’s. My garden is growing as well as I had hoped it might and, with any luck, we will have a crop of peas this year; the first time since we started growing vegetables in 2004.

As Martha would say, it’s a good thing.

Other good things this holiday weekend included my nephew’s graduation, time spent with my parents, sister, brother-in-law, niece and nephew and an evening of laughter, wine-sipping and tripping down memory lane with my college roommate, the lovely Phoebe, she of the laughing eyes and bubbly personality.

My kids had a grand time playing with Phoebe’s kids, we got to plan our next Girl’s Weekend and I feel re-charged and ready to take on the world, again.

Tomorrow, I am taking the Cub to Neighboring City to shop for summer clothing; let’s hope my charge lasts.
