Our three-day weekend was packed so full, it just flew right by. We did lots of work, but left plenty of time for play. We got a few final things planted in the garden, including 6 red bell pepper plants for Walter. "I really like red peppers now," he says. We'll see if we can get them to grow this year. Last year's peppers were a bust.
I spotted a nearly ripe strawberry on Saturday, but unfortunately, something else spotted it as well. By the time I went back to pick it on Sunday, it was already half eaten. It looks like we'll have a big crop this year. I hope whatever hungry thing that's out there is willing to share with us.
Nate ran on Sunday, but the full marathon was cancelled because of the heat. He ran the half in 1:44, finishing up just before it got really hot. Walter and I cheered him on at the finish line. Now he's on to training for the Chicago marathon on October.
We picnicked in the shade on Sunday afternoon. Molly even got to enjoy some picnic food when she sneaked a whole PB&J right off Walter's plate. That silly dog will eat her food one piece of kibble at a time, but can swallow a sandwich in one gulp.
We spent lots of time with family and ate lots of good food. We cleaned, we sewed, we worked in yard. I wish this weekend could last just a little bit longer. Three days wasn't quite enough!
