Pretty Perfect Day

Yesterday was pretty perfect.

We had great weather. It go up to the mid-70s with low humidity. Sunny with a light breeze. We washed Mia first thing and then went to the farmers' market in Warwick. We bought a few things there including some potatoes for potato salad, then headed to Penning's for lunch and to buy some herbs. We also got a couple of new Spring flags including one with a lady bug theme for use with the T@B. We picked up some baby back ribs at the Shop Rite in Warwick. 

When we got home, I did a few chores. I planted the herbs, so now we have rosemary and mint leftover from last year, plus: sorrel, cilantro, sage, thyme, chives, oregano, and even a borage plant. Most are freshly planted in soil I dug out of our compost pile. A little water and TLC, and we will be set for summer.

We opened up Lady Bug to let her air out. We are planning our first away-from-home camping trip next weekend. We sat with a glass of wine and chatted for a long time.

I hung the hummingbird feeder because it is Mothers' day. And, we were amazed when a couple of hummers started using it!

We had baby back ribs with potato salad on the deck. There are a few bugs around, but nothing that bites so we were very comfortable.

A Pileated Woodpecker paid us a visit.

Later, we built a fire in the outdoor fire pit and sat by it as we talked. I even saw a couple of bats.

I know it doesn't sound like much, and maybe I've leaving some things out. But, short of a bear siting, it was a pretty perfect day.
