The Scenic Route: Turning Out

EB White 
Morning Glories 

Do you ever have a weekend that goes nothing like you thought it would? That's about how mine just went!

My goal for Friday was to finish the laundry for the week and get the rest of my cutting flowers planted.

Jay needed help digging out peonies and echinacea... I went over there with my brother and sister and we joined him in the pulling party. When we were done he invited us in for ice cream complete with hot fudge and butterscotch!

We headed home and I had them watch for snakes while I put a bunch of the new plants into the ground.

Saturday I kept my garden areas watered, worked on some blog stuff, finished the laundry, went to the library, and watched the end of Driving Miss Daisy. (I cried...)

I'm writing this after lunch on Sunday. So far today I've spent some time reading EB White's "This is New York", whipping together a jello salad for a potluck, and getting rid of some clutter.

This weekend was supposed to be crazy and busy and include a trip out of town...It turned out to be the perfect weekend at home with time to accomplish so many things that just needed doing.

How was YOUR weekend? 

What are you looking forward to this week?
