Life is Good on Monday

I am so thankful for this day. I had no plans, and you know my inclination is to always stay busy. The weather promised to be perfect: mid-80's and breezy with low humidity. My mind wondered...go to Marshall's for Spring clothes? Go somewhere near the water? Stay home? Stay home won! I set up my beach chair on the deck with my iHome iPhone dock and a glass of tea. I started out in capris, then changed to shorts, then to my bathing suit. I put sunscreen on and spent hours listening to my downloaded audiobook with the sound of my windchimes and the chirping of birds in the background.

After awhile I switched things up and laid on my hammock listening to my book with my earbuds in. Still in my bathing suit and cover-up. It was heavenly.

In-between I made lunch salads for today, tomorrow and Wednesday.

I started my outdoor day at 11. I finally came inside to start dinner at 6. What a day! Dinner is done and I'm on my porch in my bathing suit and cover-up at 8:00. I've watched a beautiful sunset while sitting out here.

I'll leave you with a picture of what I think will be the first tulip in my garden to open. I forgot to plant my bulbs until I saw the bag in late February. Out of 60 bulbs, 48 have flowers. I can't wait to see them in bloom!

Sounds like you enjoyed this perfect day. I did the same, only I set out on an outdoor adventure. Your garden is still lovely, who cares when you planted it! When it matures, it will be you enjoying it, right? Your salads look yummy, three different kinds. I bought the Blue Apple to help keep my veggies fresh. I can't wait for more weather like today, it was perfect.

Sounds like a perfect day in every way. You are so lucky you are having nice weather. It was freezing here yesterday, so much so, out came the winter coat again!

Those salads did look yummy and I love how organized you are to prepare ahead!
