Happy Monday! Comics, Books and Margaritas!!

Hello friends! Wow, what a fantastic weekend over here. The weather made it possible for us to spend a great deal of time outside. Apollo washed both cars (for a fee of course) but had fun getting wet so it was all good. He also spent time riding his bike!

Saturday was Free Comic Book Day so we did our annual run to a few of our local comic book stores and picked up some cool stuff. I pulled out some of the back issues I needed to catch up on and spent time reading on my deck. I began with some comics and then ended up on my current read (Dread Nation).

Leao made me a margarita and I celebrated Cinco de Mayo! Sunday we took the boys out for lunch and then headed over to spend the day at their grandparent’s home. I just hung out all weekend and it was enjoyable. Of course all the laundry I didn’t do is screaming at me today but the weekend was wonderful.

This week I plan on taking a trip to one of my favorite garden centers to see how things are in preparation for my annual flower haul with my father-in-law. I always pick up a gift certificate and present it to him as his father’s day gift. So we both go crazy filling our carts with plants. We don’t wait until father’s day because we miss the good stuff so right around Mother’s Day to make our trip. So I will start walking around my property and dream up some ideas to help me with my plant selections. The funny thing is I get there and I am like a kid in a candy store. I run to color and interesting and tuck away my list.  So this year, I will attempt to exercise a little self-control. More on that stuff soon.I hope you have been having a wonderful Monday. Don’t forget to stop and find some gratitude for the blessings throughout your day!


Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Hello, everyone! Happy Friday and Cinco de Mayo!  It’s a bit gloomy outside but that’s alright, my plants need it. This week flew by mighty fast. Sometimes I will prepare a meal for the occasion but today we decided to geek out and see the premiere of Guardians of the Galaxy 2 at the movie theater tonight with the boys. We all enjoyed the crazy first and the second doesn’t look like it will disappoint.

My photo above is this week’s flower in our sitting room. I love watching the transformation of these beauties from the initial bud to this alien-like explosion of shape and color. They are truly magnificent. Yesterday, I kept stopping to look at them instead of reading my book. It’s funny how flowers still keep me in awe. In this photo, it hasn’t fully opened but each stage is stunning.

This weekend is date night with my man but before we drop the boys off with their grandparents, Saturday is Free Comic Book Day so the boys and I will wake up early and hit up some local comic book stores. It’s really fun. This will be the third year we have participated. Nick started talking about it a month ago. For those of you that haven’t experienced it, most of the local comic bookstores and chain stores, have free comics and other novelties available on this day. The first year, we walked out with a bunch of stuff. It’s really fun for the comic book lover.

Well I am keeping this short so I can wrap up some things before it’s pick-up time.  I hope you have a fun Cinco de Mayo and a blessed weekend!
