Our friend showing us his best side....
This weekend, this weekend...This weekend was a blur. I had my half day on Friday and I was super exhausted from the week and when I got home it was rainy and cold and I didn't do very much, but I didn't beat myself up about it, because it had been a frantic week and I needed a break. At night, both the girls were off doing their own things, and I hung out at home and watched Sherlock Holmes while the winds raged all around outside. It was really nice, the movie was okay. I've never read Sherlock Holmes, so I don't know how well it translated, but Robert Downey Jr. is always pretty great, and it was dark and moody enough for me.
...And his sister showing us hers.
Coadster and I went to Project Green on Saturday morning. I finally found some Black-Eyed Susans or African Daisies or whatever you want to call them. I got a couple of them and fully expect them to take over my garden by next year. The rest of Saturday was cold and blustery and I got some cleaning done and made a friend of mine a SUPER cheesy dance mix CD and then got ready for D.'s Birthday party.
The party was a lot of fun. Most of my favorite Dubliners were there. I ate, I danced around and annoyed people, I drank my 2 beers, I sat around by the fire, I found some teal colored duct tape and got as much use out of messing with that as possible, and then went home at around 11. It was kind of a perfect night.
Today was finally a great, sunny Spring day. I got a lot more planted. I still have more to go, but I then I did buy a ton of bulbs and seeds, so it could take a while to plant them all. I had an amazing run today. It made me want to get back into the kind of shape I was in last Fall when I was training for a triathlon. So, I might start training for one again, even though I don't have one I can do in the foreseeable future. In other words, I had a great Mother's Day and I hope all you other muthas did too.
