Summer is here. Sigh….
I am thankful for the seasons, it makes life interesting and colourful. No, really, I am! It’s just that I suffer in temperatures over 30. (degrees Celsius, that is) And around here it is very frequently close to 40. For months on end.
It is also Friday. Another thing to be thankful for. And not only because it is weekend, there is a much bigger reason I am excited about Friday this week – my youngest is leaving Ireland today for a 3 week holiday here in South Africa!! I haven’t seen him for a year, so how great is that! Next week is going to be a family week, and I’m going to do some baking this weekend, typically mom-style! Some rusks and a date loaf to take with to my eldest son’s place, where we will all be together. I’m chuffed as can be. 😀
I’ve planted some tomatoes earlier this week, now I cannot wait for it to start growing. I think I’ll also do some celery. And maybe a few carrots. And green peppers.
While waiting for the veggies to grow, I’ll try and neaten up the rest of the garden, and add a few decorating touches to make it prettier and more interesting. Typical Spring stuff. A home and a garden are never done, as far as I am concerned – there are always new ideas to try and changes to make by adding or taking away. Or am I the only one who feels that way?
Anyhoo…I wish you all a wonderful weekend! I have important things to do… 😀
