May - Already?

It's hard to believe that it is already May.  Where does the time go?  School will be out in 24 days, it seems like it just started.   On the up side of things, I will be able to plant my vegetables outside in the next week or so, weather permitting.  Right now my peas, tomatoes, cucumbers, and green peppers are in various containers around the house.

Today, I planted a few flowers...Just a couple pansies, geraniums, and verbena.  I am slowly making my small yard look inviting.

I bought this planter at Lowe's for $5. Had to get it.

I've had this planter for three years and never used it. 
I also mopped my floors, vacuumed, cleaned the bathrooms, and walked the dog.  All after work today.  I am rather pleased with my level of motivation today.  Tuesday seems to be my best day for getting things done. 

I treated myself to a new Nora Robert's book today, "The Last Boyfriend".  It is the second book in The Inn Boonsboro trilogy. 

I may have to splurge on a few more books this month.  There is a new one from Catherine Anderson and a Nora Roberts hardback "The Witness".  I will probably wait for this one to hit my library. 

I'm going to end my busy day with my new book and a warm bath in my sparkling clean bath tub.  It's my favorite thing to do after I scrub the bathroom.

Way to go on the seedlings! Mine are getting anxious to be outside too! Small yards are fun to do because you can create some really cool spaces. I would be happy to come and look at it sometime and give you some ideas if you want.

I really need to get on top of the planting something pretty in the yard. Even just some flowers - you are leaps and bounds ahead of me!
