Well, at least it wasn't obscene

My ruse of using a different title last Friday didn't work, and another Chinese commenter left a message. I've already deleted it. It wasn't naughty, but it certainly was obscure. Those inscrutable Chinese …

I'm so glad I haven't planted everything yet. I woke up to a rather thick coating of frost on the grass and car this morning. My baby tomatoes were safe inside all day yesterday, as it was cool and windy all day, so they didn't get hurt. I planted a bunch of herbs near my house Friday, and they all look all right.

My husband helped me plant a lilac bush Saturday. I love lilacs, but I love them most when they're big and lush and beautiful. A new lilac is none of those, of course, but I'll never have one unless I plant one now. I can check that off my Bucket List. Heh.

Didn't get much working out done over the weekend, but the house is clean. We thought my mother-in-law would be joining us for dinner yesterday, but she didn't feel like leaving the house, so we delivered dinner to her. The house really needed cleaning. I got all the seedling paraphernalia put away in the garden shed, ran the sweeper, cleaned the bathrooms, mopped the floors, dusted everything (and there was a lot of dust with all the wind we've had lately) and just generally tidied up. I want this good feeling I have about a clean house to last.

I guess that means I'll have to keep the house clean.

On the weight-loss front, I checked a couple days ago and had lost another 1.5 pounds. But then yesterday I'd gained all of the weight back, plus a half pound, that I've lost since mid-April. The scale is a fickle friend. I don't believe it, but I was too scared to check again this morning.

Hope you had a great weekend.

A clean house just feels wonderful but I find it hard to make myself do the work to actually make it clean enough to enjoy it. Having visitors is usually the only way I do everything at once! Enjoy yours and bask in your accomplishment.

Thanks so much for the sweet comment about my milestone :)
