What's a Girl to Do?

TGIF! It's my favorite day and a beautiful one at that. I've had a very busy week, and finally a good one. We bought an amazing new washer and dryer which has been installed and working busily and beautifully. The septic tank has been cleaned. I had a beauty treatment and feel pretty! I've had a mani/pedi and opted for a full massage, which was just what I needed. I planted my annuals and my husband did some pretty nice yard work. My cleaning lady is cleaning the house now, so I have time to relax. Tonight is our Friday date night, and my hubby and I will be trying a new restaurant. And to top it all off, plans were arranged by our son and his bride for a Mother's Day celebration! Now off to return phone calls and walk Doodles. See you later.

I'm glad things are better for you now, have a good date night. I haven't planted anything out in the garden yet, I don't trust the weather. I've been planting my baskets and containers as I can always move them under cover if it gets too cold.

Thank you! It's great to feel good again. Here, it's planting time. You are wise to plant in portable containers and baskets, just in case. I am looking forward to seeing your beautiful garden this year.

I was out playing around with my perennials and annuals. It is exhausting work, but so worth it. I'm very excited for this Mother's Day. My son's bride invited her parents to join us, and we enjoy their company. It should be a very nice day with lots of laughs.

@DianneN Cleaning ladies rarely are. I mean, even my wife expects payment for the housework. What's this world coming to?

@DianneN He is good and when he sees something he wants to chase does he run after it or do dogs bother him?

@Hannihar He only stays on our land and most dogs are walked on leashes. Only one escaped from its house and ran through our yard while Doodles was out. It was friendly, but Doodles got frightened and ran to us. Such a baby! lol
