My Weekend Can Beat Up Your Weekend

Glorious weather. We're talking in the 70s, people! GLORIOUS. The three-day weekend was a perfect balance of work around the house and yard with fun and relaxation.

We took lots of walks and picked handfuls of dandelions.

We rode our bikes.

Memorial Day is the first weekend many Alaskans begin gardening in earnest. The plants have been hardened and finally can go in the ground, unless you're a scatter-brained brown thumb who forgets about her bean plants, leaves them out over night too soon, and kills them. Then you spend Memorial Day weekend at the greenhouse, purchasing your starters. Hypothetically speaking, of course.

Who needs gardens any way? Hanging baskets are less work. Harumph.

Dinner last night: barbecue chicken, baked beans, potato salad, watermelon
