Some weekends are busy weekends, filled with lots of activity and visits with friends and family. But sometimes, a weekend can be quiet and a time to recharge and reflect. There is a lot happening in the next few weeks; visits and cooking for my parents, some renovation to our master bath and other various odds and ends on my downsizing to do list.
It's the time of year where summer seemed endless just yesterday, but this morning seems to be approaching its end at a too rapid pace. There are still many things to look forward too, but oh my goodness, can August really be approaching within days?
I'm still walking as much as I can, but mainly sticking to the shaded paths whenever possible, since we are in the midst of a heat wave, like so many of you. I'm also still cutting flowers from my perennials; moving from one to the next as they bloom and fade. It truly is a joy of summer for me and what I will miss when we move to Florida. I will have to find a new type of plant that will thrive in the heat; a new type of gardening for me.
My coffee tastes good this morning as I wander through my yard deadheading flowers and picking up sticks and leaves from a day of summer storms. My coffee is now decaf; a decision I made last week and so far I have been feeling a lot better without caffeine. It's a new week and Monday morning is the perfect time for making lists and reflection on the days ahead.
Have a happy Monday!
