Let's see, where to start! Well, my friend and I went 'nursery hopping' last Thursday and I got a flat of mostly herbs, but with 3 foxgloves thrown in - love those foxgloves! Then we found a place that sells supplies to nurseries and growers, and I bought two brand new, un-used bushel baskets that I am going to line with plastic and use as pots for tomatoes and annuals.
Then on Friday my aunt (daddy's younger sister) and I went to a local monthly antique market and shopped around a bit, but mostly just visited with each other. Then I went to a few yard sales, an RV supply place to get a new portable gray water holding tank (yeah, fun, I know!) for our camper. Then I bought a few groceries and came home.
Saturday I baked cookies for the freezer. They are quick desserts for picnics and camping trips. And I tried to recreate the lime jalapeno mayo from Cinco, and we had 'recreated' fried chicken tacos for dinner. They were good. Not as good as the ones at Cinco, but definitely edible.
On Sunday we took a picnic up into the mountains - pics and more on that coming soon.
Hmmmm, Monday I worked out in the yard a bit - moving some unhappy plants, dividing others and doing a bit of cleaning up.
Tuesday morning I got started cleaning out my dresser drawers - a task that should have been done long, long ago! I had 4 of 6 drawers cleaned out when my aunt (daddy's middle sister) called and she was on her way from their FL home to their VA home for the spring. She is the one that I asked for prayer for a few months ago. She is doing great now, so thank you! Anyway, she suggested we meet for a visit at a large antique store in Alpharetta, so we spent a couple of hours visiting and enjoying all the goodies. I had not seen her since the day of Daddy's funeral, so it was good to see her! After I left her, it was almost 5pm and traffic was horrible, so I made my way to Walmart and stocked up on a few things we needed while traffic settled down.
So you see, I have been busy - a GOOD busy! And while I do apologize for not posting in a while, I must admit that it has been wonderful to be up off my rear, doing something productive instead of sitting in my chair at this computer, in the funk I have been in so long! All this, both getting out and about with special folks, AND getting back into working in my home, is healing and helping me get back to living. So it's all good!
Hope you are doing well! Blessings, Becky
