It was a beautiful Palm Sunday!
Poor Louis Dean was pretty tired so he stayed home while I went to church.
I left him drinking coffee and he assured me he should be wide awake by the time I got back!
I arrived at church right behind Mike and the quads.
Amber was away on a much needed break so he had the kids by himself. Amber had paved the way by setting out their Sunday clothes and prepping everything before she left! I was so proud of him!!! He and Amber make a great team and are super parents!
I drove home and Louis Dean was sitting on the porch waiting for me.
We took the truck and went to Lowe's for plants and supplies.
Please note he is in his 'working' overalls!
But first - lunch!
He didn't want to wait and eat at home becaiuse he was chomping at the bit to get out and get started on his project of organizing his new storage building.
So we went to our favorite hole in the wall hamburger place!
OOh, those ONION RINGS!!!!!
The cook brought them to us seconds after they were lifted from the hot grease.
So hot and so good!!!!
I took a nap as soon as I got home while Louis Dean went straight to work!
We had a tea break after I got up and before I started in on the front flower bed.
I had done a good bit Saturday evening - cutting back the honeysuckle, rosebushes and rosemary.
I couldn't bear to throw away all those woody stalks of rosemary, so I made huge bouquets and placed them throughout the house! They make such a lovely fragrance!
I bought some additional herbs and a few more begonias and such.
The best thing about our visit to Lowe's was running into a dear friend from First Christian Church.
Yvonne and Doug played a part in Mike's growing up! Mike is an Eagle Scout and Doug was one of his scout masters, I believe. It's such a small world sometimes!
Anyway, we chatted and chatted and had the best time catching up with each other.
Thanks to Facebook, we do keep in touch but it was just so good to SEE each other!
By the time we quit work tonight, it was too dark to take pics!
Except for this honeysuckle which is right under the floodlight on the corner of the house.
I used a lot of what I cut back for bouquets just as I did with the rosemary so our house REALLY smells good now!
We sat outside on the driveway for awhile before going to the gazebo.
Rain is in the forecast so we pulled and zipped up all the rain curtains.
The quads will be here tomorrow so I hope it won't rain all day.
If it's not thundering and lightning, perhaps we can play outside in the rain!
I better ask Amber to send their rain coats and rain boots with them in the morning!
