Happy Weekend!

I just finished my weekly gardening duties—feeding the plants a healthy diet of organic fertilizers, deadheading spent rose blooms,  and weeding.  Now it’s time to organize for the upcoming work week and cross a few chores off my lengthy to do list.   And of course, I’ll sneak in a bit of reading and browse through my cookbook collection for delectable recipes to prepare later in the week.

Wishing you a lovely Sunday!
