On Saturday morning, I tackled my back and side yards. I’m in a townhouse and my backyard isn’t huge but I have made it very Secret Garden like so there is a bit of work to do. I also mow
my own lawn after the community landscapers weren’t so neat in the past. I cut grass, pruned, and rimmed back my gigantic butterfly bushes, partly because there was a storm with heavy rainfall and one was beginning to topple over. Full force gardening isn’t the best thing to do when you’re not feeling very well but sometimes if I push my body I feel a bit better. Of course today I’m a bit achy from doing so.
I didn’t work on any major crafts but I did write a quote on one of my Pottery Barn tombstones and find a home for them. I also remembered that while on my recent Pennsylvania trip, I stopped in a Michael’s craft store to see if their items were any different than those at home and sure enough I found these adorable tombstone place cards.
My fella came over and brought me a present, a tiny purple speaker. It’s a Jawbone Jambox Portable Limited Edition Wireless Speaker in Purple Hex. I’m sure it’s fancy but since I've never downloaded a song on my own (read that as I still buy actual CD's when I can and I hand them to him to add to my iTunes library to load on my numerous devices), I happily stay in the dark. The gadgets he brings into my life are handy and helpful. He’s very sweet as he so desperately tries to introduce me to the current decade hee hee.
We headed to the bookstore to browse and stopped in the Pier 1 next door. I *had to* buy these earrings and the bracelet! They were just too cute and one can never have enough bats or skeletons.
