Saturday, I go to sleep in & then went for an invigorating 9 mile jog and it was 40 degrees out! I thought winter was over, but I think the garden will be fine. Then I ran out to the outlet mall before the crowds to get some sunglasses to replace the ones I lost in Cozumel. We also needed a new vacuum cleaner & some more pillows.
When I returned home from shopping, H was eager to get outside and enjoy the awesome weather. I’d been wanting to go walking down on the Buffalo Bayou Trail & take some photos. I’ll have lots of pictures coming up of our adventure along the bayou.
We actually wandered down to the skate park & couldn’t help but enjoy all the kids playing and skateboarding. I’ve got some hysterical photos from there too.
Saturday night, we grilled up some pineapple salmon and had some broccoli with feta for a perfect meal.
Sunday, I was able to get some chores done after church & swim a few laps in the pool before we headed over to H’s mom’s house for an early dinner. They had cooked up enough food for an army!! After that delicious meal, we had to head down to the duplex and finish paving the porch area that we’d started almost 2 years ago! It looked like this before…
…and 2 dozen more pavers later, it looked like this!
I also saw some adorable strawberry plants at Home Depot that I just had to have for the garden. It will give me something to tend to until the rest of the plants really start growing.
They already had a few little baby berries on there! (Excuse the flash- it was dark when I was done planting them). Now the planter box is full- I’ve lost a few little plants that didn’t survive the transition, but we should get plenty of sun this week to get the rest of them growing.
GOOD NEWS OF THE DAY: Going to be a great week- lots of good stuff going on!
