Overcast with bouts of sunshine today...a little rain in the mix earlier. Pictured is my lilac bush in bloom. I snipped bunches for the house, too! Pausing for a few minutes to just say hello and catch up on reading some of your blogs. Nice enough out today to grill dinner, but not nice enough for golfing. Probably movie night...what's up over there?
We finished planting a few things about the yard, some newbies, some old faithfuls, and lucky me...a wonderful new Mother's Day gift which I am so excited about...we are celebrating a bit early since we have a swim meet on Mother's Day weekend. Pictured is the wonderful new plant stand for my herbs...how nice is this? Mark and Alex planted it all up for me and they are shown standing here proudly displaying their work on the back deck. Fancy new planters, new stand, new plants...wow...can't think what I did to deserve all this, but am very happy to receive such a wonderful gift! (Matt had a hand in it, too, just not present when I took the photo.)
Matt's day started with early swim practice. The team got to meet Mark Spitz (got their photo taken with him and received an autographed photo from him, as well as an autographed Carmel Swim Club swim cap). He spoke to the swimmers on inspirational topics, the most interesting to them being the ones about swimming, of course.
Matt then had a bit of time off before he headed down to Indianapolis for an IYC choir rehearsal and concert...he will be returning somewhere around 10-11 tonight.
This is our last free weekend for the four of us to just hang out with nothing in particular to do until after Labor Day in September. No doubt at one time or another this summer, one or more of us will be traveling to your area as I spent a good portion of a day this week booking accommodations, travel, etc....see you then!
Have a great weekend, and I'll look forward to seeing you back here around the Table on Monday. (Oh, and send photos to my email with what you are all planting this year...I miss not being able to see it all in person dontchaknow.)
