Monday, a favourite day of the week & today is one of my sisters birthday ... there will be cake at tomorrow's celebrations.
A big wave to all the Monday memo writers & a hello & thanks to our hostess, Sian at :From High In The Sky
On the Memo writing this week, I found myself making many lists. Some lists I made with a blogging friend for summer plans, which is always fun. Some lists were with regards to what I needed to get done in the garden & in the house. While both of these home keeping lists have very important items on them, the list of gardening jobs won out. The last week has been very wet & chilly but thankfully the weekend shifted into some sunnier moments. First on the gardening list, planting up of pots & planters. I promised myself this year I would reduce the number of pots of annual flowers & so as not to tempt myself, I gave away a lot of the pots filled with divides from my garden to the church Bake Book & Plant sale & thank you very much sales were just over $1,500.00!
In spite of my very best efforts I still have about 6 half barrel planters & about 15 other pots! Two of the 1/2 barrel planters have a tomato plant in each one; one Beef Steak & one Cherry. Having the smaller pots does make everything look so pretty & come mid August when most of the perennials are done, the pots of annual fill in & keep the garden looking lush. But right now the spring perennials are putting on such a wonderful show & oh the scent from the (invasive) lily of the valley& the neighbours lilac, is divine.
On the Mail front there wasn't a lot going on. Just junk mail that goes into the recycle bin straight away. Such a waste of paper!
On the Me front, Mr Man & I had the last week off to take care of some things around the house inside & outside (hence the need for lists). Mr Man was on the roof clearing out the eaves-troughs & noticed that our roof shingles look a little worse for wear ... maybe I should have hung on to those flyers for roofers. Now to decide steel roof or roof shingles.

And yes there will be more to talk about later in the week ... happy week ahead everyone.
