Sharing a few random moments from my week with today’s Five on Friday post. And yes, I know it’s Saturday. Let’s just get straight to it.
ONE: The World Is Green Again!
I mowed our lawn last Sunday and by Friday, it looked like I hadn’t bothered. Complete with these little white flowers randomly appearing. The creeping Charlie (the little purplish ones) also gives parts of our lawn a lovely lavender hue. Time to get out the lawn mower again but not today as thunderstorms roll through this morning.
TWO: Teacher Appreciation Week
Worked a few days this week and while they were busy and a bit chaotic (standard school days in May), I felt so loved. I’m still not used to being on this end of teacher appreciation week. My “haul” pictured below. The nicest note from one of our regular teachers, a Starbucks gift card from the parent organization, a coaster (back says if teachers were flowers, I’d pick you). And not pictured, a super hero themed school shirt.
THREE: Growing Like Weeds
I’m having the best time watching the baby robins in their nest. They seem to get bigger every time I look out the back door. They keep their mama busy. We’re hungry! Again. And now, we’re getting our feathers!
FOUR: Another Wren House Hunting
FIVE: Returning Flowers
Last Sunday, I stopped and picked up a hanging basket of my little blue flowers. And while out “chasing” birds around the backyard, I noticed the hydrangea I “rescued” from the rack late last summer, survived the winter. As well as a yellow (?we planted purple ones) Iris bud. And with a bit of overnight rain… A yellow Iris!
Along with working a bit last week, my youngest son also had his last band concert of the year plus a reunion picnic for the elementary gifted program, my oldest son had a rather tough Chemistry exam, and my husband traveled out-of-town to attend the funeral of one of his former classmate’s parents.
And I may or may not have sneak off by myself to go see Avengers: Infinity War last night. Definitely, not a movie I’d recommend for the younger ones. My teenager wouldn’t see it again with me and I found it intense as an adult.
Looks as though the sun’s decided to make an afternoon appearance around here so it’s time for me to get outside and inhale the just rained smell and take in all the lovely green hues of the world.
Hope your weekend blooms with happiness!
