wowza. last week and the weekend just went by so so fast. seriously. in a blink of an eye, and it's monday again. and boy oh boy, do i ever hope this week moves at a slightly slower pace ;)
we filled the weekend straight up! and we even managed to stay slightly organized. ha. and now i have a lovely little garden space to relax in! :) ... yes i actually got some gardening in! (well planting, really) ;)
i'm a balcony gardner (as some of you already know)... and i really long for a yard. but i'm grateful that i can have some outdoor space anyways. there have been a few appartments in the past where balconies were out of the question... and this space is the first balcony where we can even have a bbq! and the wind isn't ripping through, so we can actually stay out there without freezing our butts off ;)
i don't get the sun though. and after 2 years of trying tomatoes, i've had to just admit it's not going to work here... next home hopefully! so this has become my herb garden!
let me tell you, it smells lovely! digging in the dirt just does a body good :) i'll probably add more basil, since i go through that like it's nobody's business, and there are still hanging baskets that will eventually go up.... but i'm really happy with how it's looking so far :)
and did you see what little pressie came in the mail for me? haha! i love it!
it's totally me. no? this lovely mug comes from winemakerssister. my pal brea thought of me, and sent this my way :) i love it! any knitterly gift that includes coffee is tops in my book! thanks so much brea! xo
i've also picked up several skeins of yarn... they've got a purpose, and i can't wait to show you what they are!
i guess i'd better get knitting... probably out on the balcony. :)
i declare this to be a perfect stress-free space. wanna come over?
how was your weekend? was it full of sunshine? did you get to play in the dirt? what's on your schedule for this week? what are your fave herbs to have fresh? i'd love to hear from you! xo
