Morning low 60s, noon low 70s, afternoon low 80s. Early trip to the grocery store and the pet store, then sitting outside with Mimi playing and me knitting. Indoors to pack the picnic basket and find a quilt, then back outdoors to have a picnic on the front lawn, under the budding maple tree. More playing. Inspection of the flower beds. Nap time.
While Mimi is napping a box of plants for the cold, shady north border arrived. Hostas, astilbe, sweet woodruff. We’ll plant those and dig dandelions this afternoon.
Mimi’s dearest wish is to ride on the school bus that goes past, but she’d also like pink ice cream with a cherry on top. Hmm.
