I returned from my early Friday tasks and got right to work simmering a vegetable and meat marinara sauce, taking a bit of a break while that simmers to tackle the meatballs my son requested. Kitchen is clean, laundry is finished ~ just a few small tasks (and mopping the floors) and everything will be ship shape.
I have been hoping for rain in order to motivate to mop the floors. Ever since I set that precedence it has refused to rain ~ I have, however been keeping my promise to enjoy the sunshine while it is out so that I am not regretting the summer passing me by!
I have even been remembering to take my camera with me and using it ~ always a good thing! I am so happy that we are getting rain this year ~ enough to make the flowers grow! I have already seen black eyed susans which are my favourite flower ~ ready to pick when I am not feeling lazy on my next walk!
I took these today at my friend Mike's house! The yellow ones were not out the other day, they and the red ones were just starting to bloom!
