Can you say random?

Hi friends, Just wanted to say hello and wish you all a great day.  It is a sunny pretty day here in Maryland.  Albeit a bit breezy for my taste, but sunny and pretty all the same.  Looking forward to June because maybe the temps will be more consistent.  Last night it got down to freezing here.  can you believe that?  Fortunately I don't think any of the flowers or veggies we put over the weekend suffered. 

We don't usually do a big garden but we do put a few things out each year.  Several different type of tomatoes.  We both love them.  I like the little cherry ones for my salads, and the beef steak ones, I use mainly for burgers and such, plus I like to use fresh ones for my pico de gallo.  Boy do we love that stuff.  We also put out several types of peppers.  We like sweet peppers, but Michael has to have his hot peppers, so I always do some jalapeno's for him.   I also like to put out cucumbers, because that is something I just like to snack on or use in salads too.  My mom use to make pickles, but I never have tried that...but one of these years I am going to try it.  I also put out two kinds of squash, I love fried squash and Michael makes them great.  Mine aren't usually all that good, I think I cook them to fast, but his are always perfect.  Usually I put out zucchini but couldn't find any...that is until today on my lunch hour.  I ran out and found a couple of slips so I am sure they will be in the ground later today.  :)  Squash is such a favorite for us.  We like to cook it in foil on the grill and add some peppers, onions and some seasonings...mmmmmmmmm yummy.  I am ready for garden produce to start coming in, and cooking out on the grill.  Nothing says summer to me like a big cookout.

So tell me, what are some things that you put in your garden?
Other than typical stuff there is really nothing going on with me.  Mainly house projects but hopefully that is going to be over soon.  Tomorrow afternoon, we have a guy coming over to show us samples of doors, and we are hoping we will be able to order them and get them installed next week.  That is one of our major jobs still left to do. Of course our other major job is replacing the carpet on the stairs and upstairs.  Hoping to do that in the next week or so.  I will be so happy when those things are done. It will feel like such a huge accomplishment. 

This weekend ( I have a three day weekend) I plan to go through my kitchen with a fine tooth comb, and clean out the cupboards.  That will be a chore.  But again, it will be a nice feeling knowing it is all behind us.  It isn't exactly how I wanted to spend my Memorial Day, but hopefully I can get out at some point and do something fun.
Yesterday I went to the salon and got my hair cut  and highlighted.  Let me tell you girls, it is BLONDE!  It is taking getting used too. But now I feel ready for summer.  Well almost, I could of/should of tried to lose a couple of pounds but that didn't happen.  Oh well, I'm hopeful I will drop of little weigh with the hot months upon us.

I will try to get Michael to get a picture of me in the next few days and post my hair.  Be prepared to be shocked.
Well ladies, I need to scoot...got things to do.
Have a blessed Tuesday.
Hugs,
Cindy

  1. I wanna see picks of the new Blondie! I bet it's cute :-)

    I do love the new look in here... very nice!

    We don't have a veggie garden. At this point we don't even have a "garden" garden... we have a couple perennials but we still have to get some annuals in this weekend hopefully!

    Enjoy your long weekend ;-)
    Hugs xo
