When this 2 week raw fast is over, I may never eat guacamole again.
Guacamole this, guacamole that, guacamole everything!
My boys were gone all day Sunday so I languished in the outdoor tub.
The cool fall air and the bright sunshine made for a stellar bath experience.
My ennui was relieved by the tub and a good magazine.
(My mama and I love the word ennui and use it every chance we get.)
I sat in the tub and stared at this beautiful combo.
Those are the seed pods of my Senna tree that butt up against the Knock-Out roses.
The Senna has just finished flowering, but there were gorgeous masses of yellow flowers in the mix when it was.
Isn't nature beautiful? I mean, that combo was almost profound.
I had to get in there and clean out the tiny, baby lettuce sprouts.
My method of planting lettuce is to pour a bunch of seeds in the palm of my hand and throw them in the bed.
Caution to the wind, y'all!
But then I have to go in and pull up all those babies which never ceases to make me feel kinda sad.
But then I EAT THE BABIES.
Delicious babies, indeed.
Whilst I was gone over the summer (that seems so long ago now!), the Bermuda grass took over many portions of my yard.
I usually nip that stuff in the bud, but, alas, rain and neglect allowed it to invade and prosper.
Bermuda grass is evil, y'all.
I have made FinnigantheCurious promise that he will invent a way for cars to run on Bermuda grass and the world will worry no more.
You just can't kill it.
Anway, I spent a lot of time digging this small patch out yesterday.
Had a little "accident" at the nursery and came home with yet another Thryallis and a Plumbago.
Got them planted and mulched.
Also planted a couple of bottle trees to help me remember to water the newbies.
I love weekends.
Everyone seems to think that mamas who stay home with their kids have tons of time.
Au contraire, Alistair. Just the opposite.
So when the Daddy is home and they spend most of the weekend out and about doing boy things ...
AHHHHHH. Mama gets rejuvenated.
How 'bout you?
Did you have a good weekend?
Did you suffer from ennui?
