A lovely weekend began on Friday evening with a yummy gluten free pizza dinner while watching some 80’s summer movies with my hubby and son.
On Saturday, we had a delicious breakfast of mini quiches, seasoned white beans, avocado, dairy-free yogurt with cinnamon, grapefruit and matcha tea.
Later in the day, the outdoor projects continued. We started work on the firepit area. More stone work was started. We enjoyed a nice break from the work by having our first lunch alfresco for the season! The weather was sublime.
On Sunday, after a wonderful breakfast and a relaxing respite on the finished front patio with our coffees, in which we discussed what’s next on our To-Do’s before summer comes, we started working more on the finishing details (still more work to do, as laying brick work around a patio especially to a firepit area is like putting together a puzzle). The firepit was redone last year. For many years, we had peastone as the patio around the firepit. It was inexpensive, and gave us that “Cape Cod look”. We’ve had to replenish the layers through the years and those little stones always ended up in the grass as well as did not feel good on bare feet (I am barefoot a lot). After another lunch alfresco, while getting in some sun (got my first sunburn of the season as well, uh oh), the work continued, along with a break and a round of a rummy card game with our son outdoors. At a nice stopping point, we had dinner and went back outside to enjoy our first bonfire of the season! It was a lovely evening, first day of May!
A Beautiful weekend, and then the week begun again with weekly To-Do’s and work. We’ll be taking time off from our outdoor projects for some pressing matters and Mother’s day weekend, but already thinking about the projects to come.
Hope you all had a lovely weekend and have a Beautiful week! We’re expecting rain most of this week, but our plants and grass will grow and this will allow me to get some work done as well as indoor chores done. Have a most wonderful Mother’s day weekend in this coming weekend whether you are celebrating as a mom of children, of animals, or are celebrating your mom. To all of you, Happy Mother’s Day!! 🌺🌼🌹
