A good day

Jilda and I are both bone tired this evening. The almanac and weather forecasters said that after April 15, chances of a killing frost were slim so this morning we bought tomatos, peppers, eggplant, and several varieties of herbs.

We spent most of the afternoon working in the garden. We also bought flowers for the planters in front of the house. They should do well as the temps warm over the coming days.

This evening, Jilda poured some epsom salts in a warm bath and I soaked my aching bones. I didn't shoot a picture today, but I had one of the front of our house taken a few years ago.

I hope this day has been as good to you as it has to us.

  1. It's been a wonderful weekend here and I love the pic of your home..I love that front door! Our chances for frost are over toward the end of May so no planting of veggies yet. I usually get the flowers done around Mother's Day but even then I've had some get frost bit...Oh well, I guess every area has it's ups and downs!

  4. I had some fresh tomatoes to eat. Oh my goodness they were so good. Fresh veggies is the best part of warm weather.

  6. I can't remember the last time I soaked in as hot tub. In fact, we've lived in our house for eight years and I've never been in the tub. I need to remedy this.

  7. There are a few times that 'TIRED' feels so good, especially is you feel like the energy expended was productive. Sounds like it was over in Alabama!

  11. As a shower-guy, I have foregone the pleasure of a relaxing soak for too long. Maybe it's time to change that. Your home is beautiful and I delight in the soft-focus-edge effect.

  12. There is nothing quite as good as a long soak for getting rid of the aches and pains. You are about a month ahead of us as far as planting goes.
