Thanks to all who gave me great suggestions for landscaping my front beds. I really appreciate your thoughtful comments. I hope to implement some of them as soon as I can.
I had a great birthday. My students were so sweet to me telling me happy birthday all day long. A few of them even gave me presents! One sweet girl baked cookies and gave me a cute bracelet. Another brought a potted Begonia in for me. Three other girls gave me a Walmart gift card. They made me feel so special!
Mr. SP surprised me with a really unique gift, he had two chairs made for our patio! The Hokie Bird chair is mine and the Wisconsin one is his. I am tickled pink and keep going outside to look at them. We’re having a birthday party/cookout here on Sunday with friends to celebrate my birthday. I can’t wait for our friends to see these chairs, there will be at least one Hokie and one Badger guest among the bunch. The company that made these chairs might get a few more orders after our friends see these!
Mr. SP also gave me a cocktail shaker, something I’ve wanted one for a long time. I’ll have to come up with a specialty cocktail to make for the party. I also was surprised with a very sparkly necklace that I love.
I love cake, especially birthday cake! This one tastes as good as it looks. It won’t last long around here!
I am so much looking forward to a three day weekend. I’m planning on running and playing tennis Saturday morning and then attending my niece’s dance recital Saturday night. It’s a 2 1/2 hour drive each way to the recital, which means that the majority of my day will be spent either driving and watching dancing. She’s in six dances and I can’t wait to see her perform.
Our boat is broken, so a fun day on the lake is probably not in the cards for this weekend, but the pool opens and I do believe that a lounge chair is calling my name. Sunday just might be a gardening and pool day followed by my birthday cookout.
I plan to run a 10K on Monday to benefit the local kidney association. My friend is in charge of it and even though I really don’t want to run the race, I’ll do it to support her charity.
I hope everyone has a safe and fun Memorial Day weekend. What are your plans?
