Lazy, Hazy, Crazy Days
Updates from the weekend:
Saturday, rushed to work with heart in throat, replaced peonies in some centerpieces, changed water, talked to flowers sweetly. Did a million other arrangements, baby showers, bridal showers, dinner parties, you name it. Drank a lot of water, wrapped bouquets with ribbon, packed bouquets, threatened driver's life if so much as a petal dropped from wedding flowers. Then sent him out in 90 degree heat with fragile branches of double cherry and those peonies. A series of misadventures followed but nobody saw us sweat. Well, maybe they saw him sweat, but not a bloom was lost. There are no pictures, there is no evidence.
Sunday, 90 degrees and high humidity. While German Girl mowed lawn and edged beds, I lay around our hot house drinking copious amounts of iced green tea and lemonade and reading. that was it. Oh, and I took 2 showers. I was good for zip. Nada. Zero.
Monday, Very, very strict with myself. Housecleaning and laundry. NO blogging. I mean I peaked at a few new postings whenever I finished a room, but then I left the computer alone, just walk away from that computer, I told myself. Then lunch with friends, a little shopping, coffees and talking. Home, prepped dinner, took a few shots of the garden ( see above). Next wedding I'll use my own peonies, lavender and garden roses, thank you very much.
Whew, feel much better now that I've gotten all that out of my head. I am now free to peruse your blogs and see what you've been up to!
