Great weekend

Monday, May 20, 2013

I love late spring/summer - warm and sunny days, able to be outside without freezing, enjoying the smell of new mown grass, seeing the flowers and trees in bloom.

Was another hectic weekend with overnights for the 2 youngest grandchildren. We planted flowers, colored, read and just had a good time - boy was I tired. On Saturday, my oldest grandson had a karate demonstration, went for a short run, mowed the lawn and then went to some friends' house in the evening. After church on Sunday, took an elderly friend shopping then had the rest of the day to myself. Spent most of the day working on the gardens and deck. Needless to say, I didn't go running since was so tired from all that outside activity. But, I figured I burned a lot of calories weeding, moving mulch, picking up stones and working on the deck railing.

All in all, it was a wonderful weekend. Can't wait to see what I accomplish this week!! Yeah for sun and warm weather!!!

    I am 63 and started running at 57. I just got back into it this year and did a 5k and will have another on Memorial Day. It's good to see someone my age also running

    How's the deck railing coming? Is it almost done?
I intended to work in my garden over the weekend, but didn't get it done - you put me to shame! I guess I better go pull some weeds!
