I took this in the early morning light while having my coffee on the patio, still in my pajamas and slippers. It had the makings of a beautiful day.
A little later on, my husband is in the garden with the rototiller. He’d been trying for weeks to get the thing working again. It would sputter and die out each time but today he persevered and was rewarded with a perfectly tilled garden patch.
I went out and bought a new umbrella.
Our old one was beat, and umbrellas make things look fun.
Seriously Springtime here.
Lunch on the patio under the new umbrella.
With a cocktail.

Later on, I noticed a male bluebird checking out one of the houses my husband had cleaned earlier, in preparation for their arrival.
Trying to get through this book I signed on to review this week. I’m probably not feeling the love because I’m just not in the right frame of mind.
That’s an ice cream bar in the background there and I plan on eating it.
Which I did.
It was decadently delicious.
I came inside later on and washed the dishes that were in the sink.
And at 5:30, I started making dinner.
Please try to stay awake.
George at the top of the stairs waiting to be called down to dinner.
He always eats after we do.
And after dinner, he likes to play games.
Tonight’s movie on Netflix: The Young Victoria. Emily Blunt is lovely as Queen Victoria, Rupert Friend made the perfect Prince Albert, and the costumes and set designs were fabulous. Enjoyed the movie, although it was a bit slow. Rupert Friend was the best part. Another movie I loved him in was Mrs. Palfrey at the Claremont.
So that’s my day. I wanted it to last longer, as it’s the end of my spring break, which is kind of depressing . . . but maybe it will be good to get back to normal again. This week has just been so sad.
Hope you have a great week, all ~ and, as ever, thanks for stopping by.
