I LOVE summer! I live for the sunshine days, the garden growing, the smell of coconut oil and any excuse to use / play with the hose. Temperature-wise, we reached the mid 80's yesterday and today looks to be just as lovely!
What shall I do? What shall I do? Definitely going to drag out the hose. It iS a drag, getting it all set up. We have no outside water spigot, so I have to connect it to the kitchen faucet. LOL.. I made plenty of wet messes before I found the right connector doodad! I shall water my little flower garden, hose off the sidewalk and entryway and most likely wash the car as well.
There will be a short period of sunbathing. It has to be short as I'm still very pale and don't want to burn. You should see Lynne! Our little blonde-haired, blue-eyed princess was out for 45 minutes AFTER 4 pm... and ended up PINK. LOL.. her favorite color *wink* I'm not that susceptible to burning, but am always careful at the start of the season.
What else? Oh, I promised to do the grocery shopping today. Lynne has 410 papers left to grade and doesn't need that chore eating into her already slim amount of spare time. Me, I fecking live in the grocery store, what's another few minutes anyway, right?
I also have a big bunch of rhubarb that a friend gave to us. So I am thinking about making a pie, with meringue mountain on top! There's enough to make a crumble too, but those are best eaten warm so I'll wait on that.
There are two newspapers waiting to be read. Sudoku and crossword puzzles inside needing to be solved. I also need to make a list for the bbq we're having on Sunday... mmm, good excuse for guacamole.
My mind is all over the place right now, can you tell? I love puttery days off.
