Happy Monday!!

Hello, and happy Monday! It’s a bit gray outside this morning and I await possible rain to nourish my plants. Oh, and happy first day of May. This morning I am enjoying an amazing cup of Mahjong Chai Oolong blend from Teavana. It’s like love in a cup! I mean it, the aroma is intoxicating and the flavor is so satisfying. I am actually working on my second cup right now. I love loose teas because you can mix them for quite an amazing experience.

We had a lovely weekend. On Friday, I was on a little dandelion hunt in my side yard. Trying to stay on top of those pesky weeds. Leao and I headed to Lowes and purchased blinds for the deck. We installed them on Friday and they are amazing. They create a great ambiance and privacy when closed. On Saturday, my in-laws visited and while my father-in-law helped Leao replace broken areas in our fence and then paint them, my mother-in-law and I caught up and Apollo helped her set up her new cellphone. Then we indulged in some Kelly’s fried clams, shrimp, and scallops while sitting on my deck.  Yup, you heard me right, I had some fried food.  I rarely eat fried food so when I do, it is a real treat.  We had fun watching the squirrels and birds eat all the bird food I put in the feeder. We even saw a chipmunk and squirrel sit rather close eating the food! The temperatures were rather hot so it was nice to be outside. However, Apollo’s allergies were aggravated so I kept him off the deck for much of the day since the pollen count was extremely high.

On Sunday, we took Apollo to a friend’s birthday party to rollerskate. He gave it a try but will have to try again to get the hang of it. I was so proud of him for trying. I used to rollerskate when I was a young girl and I had those inexpensive skates that strap onto your shoes, then I moved up to full skates. I used to skate on my driveway and then the road then I moved up to going to the local roller rink and loved it. I didn’t skate on Sunday but told him, I would another time just in case I need to reacquaint myself. I had no desire to fall in front of all his friends that’s for sure.

I didn’t have much time for reading this weekend so I didn’t finish my intended April reads. So catch up this week is on my list of things to do.  What I really need is to find some larger chunks of time to immerse myself.

I hope you have a blessed week and I will check in later this week.
