So this was my Saturday. I had a casual breakfast with my Mom, my brother and his girlfriend. Brother and GF were in town visiting for the day. They brought coffee and donuts from Yum-Yum. Best coffee and donuts ever! Better coffee than Wawa. My Mom provided the kitchen. And I whipped up my famous scrambled eggs. According to my family, I make the best eggs in the world. No secret, I wisk them up really good, add just the right amount of water (maybe that's the secret) and the hot pan.
When I got home I did just enough cleaning inside to get by, and then headed out. Even though the sun played hide and seek all day, Spring was in the air, so I hosed down the deck and outdoor furniture, swept the front porch, and weeded a little bit. I have some mint that I've been trying to eradicate for several years. It sounds cruel but if you've ever had mint take over a flower bed or border you know what I'm talking about. I didn't plant it. It was here when I moved in and every year I do battle with it. I have to admit, most years I lose that battle around July when I realize there aren't enough hours in the day for me to do all I'd like to and spending 2 hours a day pulling up mint runners is really not going to happen. It's early yet, but the mint is already making a stand, so I pulled a bit at the one end of the border where I typically let it get away from me. Then after all my hard work I settled down on the deck, with a cup of tea, wearing my fresh off the needles Sweet Feet socks, and knit a little bit.
