This week was a little crazy, but in a good way. It started out really well. I got a call from a friend who lives in Idaho, asking if I was busy on Wednesday. She said she would be in town and wanted to come by while her husband was in a training class.
I was really happy to see her. I think it’s been a couple of years since we had seen each other. It was a fun day of just hanging out together and getting caught up. But I forgot to take a photo. Oh well so is how it goes sometimes.
With the great weather our garden is really taking off. I was really surprised when I checked the strawberry plants and found a few berries already forming. Can’t wait until they are ripe and ready to eat. Yum!
I was able to get a few tomato plants transferred into the garden and I’m hoping to get a few cucumbers planted too. It’s a little early, but the plants are outgrowing the cold frame.
My husband took the car that is usually parked in the garage, a couple of days this week. Leaving the garage open for the kids to play in. They rode the plasma car (affiliate link) and set up tents.
It was a fun time for all until my son found the pull noise makers, we had left over from the 4th of July and set a couple off. The dogs and cat wanted to have nothing to do with being in the garage to play with him after that. I can’t blame them, it was really loud.
I meant to post about this shopping trip to Everyday Deals Extreme Discount last week but I never got to it. Since I haven’t been out to shop yet this week, I don’t have a new shopping trip to share. But I’m hoping to get out to shop this weekend.
