We had a great weekend; so much was accomplished and the weather was absolutely beautiful. It was a pleasant surprise to not have rain this weekend. (although I know we need the rain; it was a nice break).
I am rather weird.... I know I am weird in many ways, but lets stay focused on the reason I feel I am weird today.... I love mulch. I love the smell of mulch, I love the feel of mulch, and I especially love the way mulch looks in the yard. (I have never tasted mulch, not even while pregnant, I know some women are dirt eaters when they are pregnant but that was never me). Greg asked me what I wanted for Mother's Day and I told him mulch... he said " I am serious, what would you like?" I told him I really want mulch.
This love of mulch would explain my excitement when Greg called the Mulch Man Saturday morning. I couldn't wait to have our mulch delivered; I always take an active role in our landscape mulching. One year our mulch was delivered during the week while Greg was at work so I started spreading it before he was home. It started to rain and I continued to work. By the time I had all the mulch spread I had it all over me from head to toe, I even found some behind my ears during my shower. I loved every second of it. Should I be concerned for my love of dirt and mulch??? I don't typically like to "play in the dirt", however there is something about spring, landscapes and mulch that really gets my blood pumping. I love my Mother's Day present and I love how our house looks with our new mulch.
I was blessed with the opportunity to style a dear friend's daughter's hair for prom this weekend as well. I cleaned up a bit and drove over after mulching our yard with many apologies for my manure smell. I thoroughly enjoyed being part of her big day. We sat and talked for nearly 2 hours while curling and spraying. She looked absolutely beautiful! I now feel a little more prepared to style Leslie's hair this weekend for her prom as well as 2 of her girlfriend's hair too.
Here are some photos of the hair styling....
Here is Pippy Long Stocking... I mean me doing Kim's hair.
Isn't she beautiful??? Her beauty has very little to do with her hair though.
We were also able to squeeze in a some visits with family, church, a Bible study with dear friends, grocery, cleaning and a cram session with Leslie to finish her genealogy scrap book which is due today.
It wasn't a relaxing weekend by any means, however we were able to get a little bit of everything done and enjoy the beautiful weather.
I hope your weekend was as bright as mine, Happy Monday and Happy Birthday to my brother Jamie. :)
