This was a pretty good week for me.
The other day, I was standing in my closet trying to figure out what I felt like wearing. I usually dress based on my feelings. I guess I’m lucky that my job doesn’t require me to dress for business. I thought about my friend, Ramya, and decided to wear the tunic from the outfit that she got for me when she went to India. It’s beautiful so I thought it might be make me feel beautiful. It is also very comfortable.
When I worked at A.C. Nielsen, the Indian contractors there had brought me back an outfit one year. It was beautiful, but rather fancy. I liked to wear it because it was comfortable. I wore it to an Indian wedding and fit right into the festivities.
After I got into work, Ramya showed up and I had to show her what I wore. I made the statement that I looked like her. Jon, who sits next to me, yelled over the cube that it could be dangerous. Jon said that Ramya usually had a crazy light in her eyes and now there would be two of us! Now how can that be bad? Anyway, I was very comfortable in my outfit. Thanks, Ramya.
Last Saturday, we were celebrating Cinco de Mayo with BBQ and drinks. My friends, Kim and Diane K., came by. Rick and his girlfriend, Jordyn, joined us for the food. No alcohol for the minors. Diane brought party favors. We had somberos, beads, and serappe cozies. The food and company were great.
Kim put beads on Sascha and then tried to teach her to wear a sombero. Sascha would accept the pieces of tortilla chips, but leaving the hat on was not going so well. It did stay on long enough for you to see, but no photo ops were possible. However, I did get one of Sascha in her red hot pepper beads. No, she wasn’t licking her chops for the margarita. She’s underage.
Today, I went out and bought my flowers for Mother’s Day. Every year, Rich and Rick pay for the flowers to go in the boxes on the back of the deck. I also have a couple of containers that I filled this year. After dinner, I went out and planted the flowers. Now the deck looks nice and ready for summer. I put in pink petunias and white alyssum. The flower pots have white petunias, alyssum, and pink coleus. I love my deck flowers.
Tomorrow, I have to transplant some peonies into my front peony bed. Rick finished turning it over for me and it’s ready to go. After that, I need to weed, weed, weed, and more weed. All of my flower beds are in bad shape. The weather’s been pretty good and the weeds are taking over. I weeded the poppies tonight. Something in there didn’t like me though. I react pretty good.
So over the next few days, I image it will be gardening time. I have lots of work to do on them before we go on vacation. Then I can do it all again when I get back.
On Wednesday, Rick graduates from high school. It’s the end of one period and the beginning of another. He had his last day of school on Friday. When we get back from vacation, he’ll be looking for a job. Hopefully, he can find one. Then it’ll be on college in the fall.
