What a long weekend.....

I'm beat. I had a wonderfully exhausting weekend.

My son's 5th birthday party was excellent... the weather was beautiful, and we all had a blast. Our birthday parties are not just for kids- but for grownups as well, so we all usually have a great time and it's usually a late night. This year proved to be no different...

Sunday, we cleaned up -and it was gardening time!!! I planted my vegetables and herbs - I'm so excited. I planted a few different things this year, and I also just found out that different vegetables do quite nicely when in large pots too - so I'm thinking of adding a few new ones to my collection this week. Lettuce, Shallots, Onions.... yum.

Incredibly busy this summer....starting with this past Saturday - we have parties, showers, christenings, baby namings, and graduations through July 22. When it all ends with my daughter's 2d birthday. Yes, another bash once again.

Summer's here in Boston... Life is good. Sunshine is good for the soul. I just don't know how people in England do it. I'd be entirely homicidal if I lived in such always dreary conditions.

Glad the party turned out well and everyone had a good time!!

We have a very busy summer too which also started this weekend....except our business goes all the way thru Labor Day weekend.

Your daughter and my son must be pretty close in age cause my son's 2nd birthday is coming up in a month too!

I got all my vegetables and herbs planted this weekend too. It was super hot, but it felt good to "get dirty". I love summertime.

We can use a lot of the herbs for brewing. I couldn't find any Heather but have all the standard ones, like thyme, rosemary, dill, oregano and basil.

Mabye I'll post pics of my gardens soon.

I'm so happy summer is finally here - Now give me my AC and I'll be on my merry way.

I'm glad you love it Rebecca.

The hot weather here in Manhattan is killing me, I hate it with a passion. It makes me homicidal.

I grew up in L.A. and hated when people would say "another beautiful day in Southern Califronia". Urghh.

I am sure that if you applied yourself you could be entirely homicidal ANYWHERE...

If only I lived closer...I'm certain I would love your parties!

I do all my vegetables, flowers and herbs in pots due to townhouse living. As long as I don't neglect them, they turn out great every year.
