Weekend Wrap-Up.....

...on a Wednesday. Yeah, I realize that the weekend is over, but since I worked on Monday (double time! :) & yesterday, this is the first chance I've had to update my blog since the weekend. And what a gorgeous weekend it was! Jim was off all 3 days from work, so we spent the weekend doing some things around the house & doing some shopping since it rained 2 of the 3 days. I'm actually glad that it rained because it meant that we still haven't had to turn on our sprinklers yet :)

Saturday night, we took a drive down to Ferndale & ate dinner at a place that Emily told us about called Como's. Since I love Pizza, I had to check it out since she's always saying that they have the best pizza around. And yep, it was pretty darn good, but I still don't think it beats Kalloways. Sorry, Emily :)
Sunday, we were blessed with this beautiful sunset. I took both of these pictures from our deck. After the rain let up, it turned out to be a gorgeous evening & we were able to open the windows & let some air in.

When the windows are open & this Lilac behind our garage is blooming, you can smell it through the whole house! This is the first Lilac that we ever planted & also my favorite out of all of them. The scent is just amazing. I really need to cut some of the flowers & bring them inside the house before they all die & especially since we now have the A/C on since it's hot & stuffy outside today.

As promised, here's a photo of our newest Lilac addition. This is the Tinkerbelle dwarf Lilac that we planted on the side of our garage. The blooms are so pretty! It's amazing what a week can do to a plant, huh? (see post from last Wednesday when we just planted this Lilac & it wasn't blooming yet)

Monday while I was working, Jim went out to WoJo's & bought me another hanging basket plus this gorgeous rose bush. It's a melon color & so fragrant. He did good ;)

Today, I need to drop of my specimin to the doctor's office (fun, fun!) & then attempt to go to Walmart for some groceries. In between, I'm also working on some new class projects & still need to do some more layouts using my May DT kit. Wish me luck! For those of you that are curious about my doctor's appt last week, he's running a LOT of tests on me, one of them being a 'specimin' plus he did an x-ray & he also has me scheduled for an ultrasound of my abdomen on June 8th. So I still have no idea what's wrong with me yet. All I know is I'm tired of having pains in my stomach & back & going to the bathroom so much :(

Happy Hump Day,
