This weekend went a whole lot better than last weekend. We did a little of this and a little of that and a whole lot of nothing. I got some work done. I took a nap; both Saturday and Sunday (I know! How cool was that! Why am I using so many exclamation points!). I unpacked a couple of more boxes. You know, I did stuff.
One of the things that JR and I did was a little yard work. Of course, we had to do it before 9am because the heat and humidity after that is just too unbearable.
We transferred some of the herbs from pots into a small garden bed next to the backdoor. They ought to like it there. The soil shouldn't be as hot as the pots. Herbs like to keep their feet cool. I don't blame them. I like my feet cool also. You can see we did plant a couple of tomato plants, a pepper and a trio of zucchini plants in a pot. The zucchini may not like it but I'm pretty sure the tomatoes and the pepper will.
We cleaned up, planted some tropical and some annual plants and laid down some bark in our Sunday morning spot.
No matter where we live we set up a sitting place. Somewhere that JR and I can sit out on weekend mornings or weekday evenings. When it's not too hot that is. Lately it's been too hot but we've got it all ready for when the heat dies down. Which should be in October. Or maybe early November.
What do we do in our sitting place? We drink coffee, tea, cocktails or mimosas. We read. I paint. We talk about the upcoming week or we are quiet. No TV to distract. Just JR and I and the dogs.
Have you got a sitting place?
