Bizzy Weekend

There was lots to do this past weekend. Most of Friday afternoon I spent with the plants and cleaning up the big mess I made in the kitchen. Friends dropped by with cheese in the early evening, which we accompanied with wine and crackers from the pantry. What's not to love about an impromptu happy hour?
  Saturday morning was spent way out east buying a teak shower bench, getting magazines at the bookstore, then laying in supplies at Costco.
  My grandson spent the night and that is always a treat. Sunday started off with pancakes, then bike riding, and after that we went to the river for a picnic. Vincent decided it would be better to get Taco Bell than make sandwiches, etc. I agree. Even though it was chilly and breezy, we had great fun tossing rocks in the river.
  Sunday evening I attended the second annual Trashion Show, benefiting  the Memphis City Beautiful Commission. Local shops and designers showed outfits created from recyclable items such as paper, plastic bags and the like. My friend who participated in the runway show, created an amazing set of wings constructed from bicycle parts and copper wire. What fun.

  The weekend carried over to Monday with a trip to the country. A friend and I drove to visit our friend who introduced us to her friend who has rebuilt an old cabin on her property. Cute place, full of antiques and decorated to perfection. Her garden kicked butt and she has chickens! Big lunch, of course, then retail therapy at the Mennonite grocery store.
