Weekend Wonderer

What's Jack up to? Chilling out after a long and really hot weekend. Not too much jumping around today eh, Jack?

This Really has been a particularly hot weekend in New York. Especially for June and especially in my house and I don't see any relief any time soon. I'm really busy with writing work and end of the school year things for the Dear Teens. Mom stress is at the same high level as the outside thermometer. These are the times that no one warned you about when it was all smiles and congratulations over you having babies. Teens are not babies.
So of course as a writer, when I get stressed I turn to books. Romance, Self-help, The bible. etc.

I picked up this one book in B&N because the title was just was calling my name THE WORN OUT WOMAN. Check out this anonymous quote at the beginning of the first chapter:

"Don't ask me to relax; it's my tension that's holding me together."
It just made me smile in it's perfection.

In between working on my new proposal I did a little work in the garden to give my eyes a break. I thought I share some pics here of the Collards I planted. Thanks to PVE for coming through and finding these at Carlson's.

I'm a girl that likes to feel the dirt in her hands when planting. Guess it's time for a new mani huh? Boy do my hands look old! UGH.
Here is a freshly cut bouquet of roses that the DH cut for me right before a flash thunderstorm on Saturday. It's so nice to have flowers from your own garden on your table.
Now to get a little peace of mind at said table...
So how was your weekned?

We had ice cream for dinner, that's how my weekend was. LOL Watched PS I Love You, hung out with my visiting CP's, ate too know the drill.

Jaci Burton said...

Your flowers are gorgeous Kwana! And I love getting my hands dirty in my garden, too ;-)

Kwana said...

Thanks PVE!

Sounds like a fun weekend, Kristen.

I guess getting dirty is part of the fun, Jaci! Thanks.

"Don't ask me to relax; it's my tension that's holding me together."

That sounds about right.

Those roses are beautiful!!! I can't wait until one day when I have my very own garden.

Btw, I love that quote too! :-)

You've inspired me to cut some of my peonies and bring them in today! Those are gorgeous.

Weekend...umm, hot. You saw my post. Good news, HVAC guy is at the house today...amen.

See, that quote gives me something to say to people. I think there is only a certain population of the world that would understand, though.

Kwana said...

I'm so glad the qoute is inspiring. You are so right, N. Only a certain population would truly get it.
