It's so pretty outside today!

I wish the weather could stay just like it is right now all the time. It's cool enough for a light jacket and the sky is blue! I love it. Our weather here has been all over the place the last few weeks. It'll be nice to get some constant temperatures soon!

I have so much to do this weekend. Tonight Michael is going to be heading out of town and I am going to meet up with friends for dinner and an evening of catching up! Saturday I have to study b/c I have a test on Monday (no, I won't be just starting...I've been studying), and I have to pick up mother's gift from me and my sisters. (Mother - in case you're reading - NO CLUES!) We're also getting together to cook lunch for her, but we haven't decided if we're doing that Saturday or Sunday now. We'll see! Another tentative plan for Saturday evening is to get together with some girlfriends, either out or at home with good movies - all after I study some more! I also have laundry and the floors to clean - I guess that's pretty much a constant on the to-do list!

Work is still just as busy as ever. For a brief moment I thought I was seeing sunlight, but I think I was just hallucinating! If I didn't have meetings to go to every day or could disconnect my phone I might get a little more work done! I think I already said this, but I am doing my job plus all the work that was previously being done by about four or five in another office that are now gone, on top of the fact that my area expanded this quarter to Central Texas along with what I already took care of for the Gulf of Mexico! Whew!

I'm on lunch right now and should actually either be studying or working, but it's been a long week and it's Friday and it's beautiful outside (though I'm not outside to enjoy it), so I decided to take a blog break!

I actually do have a bit of news...might not be interesting to some of you, but Michael and I are starting a vegetable garden! We built it this week, but have to get some more dirt and are planning to start planting next month! We want to have onions, tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, and zuchini. We might put some more things in, but we'll have to see how much room we have! It's only 8 X 8 feet, which isn't too small, but still we can't crowd it! I think it's going to be fun and I love fresh tomatoes so I am looking forward to those. Mother always had a little garden at home and it was so nice to be able to bring the fresh vegetables to the table. We would have sliced cucumbers and tomatoes on the table at most meals! I need to take a picture of it to document its growth!!!!

I think I am going to go downstairs to the cafeteria and get something to drink! I had soup for lunch today and it was a bit salty!

Have a great weekend!!!!
