Three Day Weekends
Don't you wish every week had three day weekends? When I cram all my weekend activities into just two days, I'm exhausted. I need the third day to help spread it out. I hope everyone had a lovely Memorial Day weekend. Art and I spent most of Sunday tackling the ugly spots in the yard. It's so rewarding to view the aftermath of a few good hours getting our hands dirty. Move the compost, raking, planting, mowing and watering. I'm feeling kind of sore, but there's still plenty more to do. What's the hurry you say?.......... Well, Art and I have decided to host my friends wedding here in early October. It'll probably take that long for us to get everything ready. Then the fun part will be decorating.
Saturday and Monday, I taught art classes. My younger students are starting their succulent paintings with water drops added for a cool effect. Carol, Francesca and I are almost done with the elephant mural. I think by next week it should be done. Just needs some more highlights and the polaroid border painted on. Here's a shot I took of them working on it.
I was able to bottle up all the honey with chunks of honeycomb harvested the other day. Just enough to pass out to my neighbors. Can't wait till the real harvesting begins.
