A Gorgeous Day!

Today's weather was fabulous! It was warm and sunny. Since we have had all of that rain, everything just smells so clean and fresh. I had an early meeting at church but met up with my friend and her standard schnauzer to go walking by the beach. If you have been watching the AT&T golf tournament you can see our waves here are so huge! Therefore, we could not go onto the beach (too dangerous!) We walked all over Carmel. It felt so good to be walking and outside. Liesl was so happy to be trotting around town again. She has had cabin fever with the rain, so she was one happy furgirl. I love to see her happy and smiling. Her little puppy smile lights up my heart.

Even though I had to get up early, I stayed up way too late last night watching the Olympics opening ceremony. It was so amazing. It was worth it, but I was dragging as I was driving home from our walk. Liesl was falling asleep in the car. I got home with my new stack of library books. (yay!) I looked at Liesie and asked her if we should take a nap. She thought this was a splendid idea. We snuggled up and slept for about 2 hours! Yikes!

With the weather being so beautiful, gardening is on my mind. I spent quite a bit of time on the Park Seed website. I would really like to plant some heirloom tomatoes. There are so many! Wow! It will be hard to narrow it down. Plus they have some great flower seeds on sale. That site is SO dangerous.

My staycation is in one week. I am so excited. I think I may just do nook and cranny cleaning of my house next Saturday so I can relax in a sparkling clean house. I am going through my patterns tomorrow during the Daytona 500 (Go Tony!) I think I will probably add gardening to my ever growing staycation bucket list of things I want to do. I am really excited!

What a wonderful way to spend the day. The sleep sounded good.
