It's amazing what you can accomplish on a Saturday if you stay home for the weekend. I had an icredibly busy day. Finding my Asian man below piqued my interest in garage sales, so I left at 8:00 a.m. to hunt for other treasures. I bought a few things which I'll show you another time.
I went grocery shopping with DH.
At noon we went to a memorial luncheon for my ex father-in-law. After that my son and his girlfriend came over for a short time before they headed back to Detroit.
Around 2:00 p.m. I finally was able to get outside and work in the gardens. It was great working weather (75 degrees) and I worked for about 4 hours. Digging out wheelbarrow loads and then refilling with topsoil. The arm muscles got a good workout today.
I made my first Margarita.
I had no idea how to make one, so I brought out the "how-to-make-cocktails" book I bought in December.
I even used freshly squeezed lime juice.
I must say it was quite good even though I do not have a cocktail shaker (I did not make the blended type).
I used my 1970's orange Tupperware bowl. It was all I could find with a tight fitting lid. I just tossed in the tequila, Triple Sec, lime juice and ice and shook it like crazy.
After all my hard work, I showered, put on my green acres gown, and sat in the deck glider sipping my Margarita while DH cooked burgers on the grill.
I am planning to accomplish even more outside work today. It's already light enough to go out (it's 6:10 a.m.). As soon as I finish my second cup of coffee, I'm heading out there. One of these day I must get caught up!
