Alright, that’s enough for one week!
I did five full days, and my mom even came over for two if those days. And would you believe it — I didn’t get as much done as I thought I would get done in two or three days?
I did get a lot done though. The weeding is almost totally done — which I’ve learned the hard way needs to be done early if it’s going to be manageable.
Some of the highlights:
a finished vegetable garden
the herb garden
the parterre garden

After five days of garden work, I’m looking forward to three days of knitting. I’ll be taking a walk down to my LYS to check out some Euroflax Linen for Kat Coyle’s skirt from Knit Cafe that Lolly pointed out. I have the same concerns that many of you have about knitted skirts but I think I need to try one myself. I love to wear airy skirts to work or out on the weekend and I love the flouncy bottom on this one.
And after I get back from the LYS I’ll be making up a batch of my favorite sangria recipe (I use a little less spiced rum and pineapple orange banana juice instead), and putting a barbecue brisket on the grill (it should make the neighbors hungry too!).
Now this is what a vacation is supposed to be about.
