It has been raining all day. Not that dreadful chill-you-to-the-bones wintry rain, but a delicious, warm spring rain that smells of daffodils, hyacinth and budding trees. I love it!! 🙂
I had to stop by the drug store after work, and was delighted to see racks of potted fresh herbs for only $1.99!! I snapped up this beautiful basil, my first new plant at my new place, and it’s now sitting perkily on my patio. I can’t wait for it to grow big and bushy, ready to be turned into pesto and all manner of lovely things. 🙂
Although it was raining, I had to take a little stroll to the creek, to see how spring was advancing. It did me good to breathe in the rain-washed air and see the blackberry bushes leafing out and new grass poking up through winter’s brown leftovers.
I have much to be grateful for tonight, and I smile when I stop to think of it. 🙂 I had encouraging news from my doctor today, and that bit of hope did much to ease worries I didn’t even know were lurking. I made a new soup tonight that is so lovely I can’t wait to tell you about it on Monday! 🙂 This weekend I get to see dear friends, my brother and sister in law, cousins and their kidlets, aunt and uncle and parents for a whole day of visiting and feasting. 🙂 And I get to rest. 🙂
Do you have any lovely weekend plans? What is one thing you’re looking forward to? 🙂
