I have been staying up way too late each night this week (on the plus side I pulled off 5 posts in as many days... it's been a long time since I met that goal!). I'm groggy most mornings, but the weather has been nothing short of perfect and just being outside for the bulk of the day makes a world of difference.
WIth so many new outdoor adventures to explore, my cooking has been sliding. Actually it started at the tail end of winter. I was on the brink of losing my mind from too much time inside with frigid temperatures and decided we'd splurge regularly by going out to eat way more often. It's such a budget buster, but man is it fun. I'm trying hard to break the habit, but Little Smith is no help, 'I want to go out to lunch mama, please please please'... and all I can think is, me too! Let's do it!
We finally started our garden, but there is so much more to get done. We're late, even by slow spring standards. I'm hoping the weather cooperates enough to give us some time to make progress this weekend. I was dreaming of a gate, but it doesn't look like this is going to be the year it happens. I always feel pulled to spend Mother's Day getting projects completed rather than chilling. Unless the rain has other ideas, I plan to have my hands buried in soil for this year's festivities.
Hope that all of the mother's out there have a wonderful week-end, I am off to bed with my fingers crossed that I can string together a solid three hour window of slumber. Happy Friday!
