Almost guilty

Had a great weekend, especially after the heat subsided. Saturday we went to the nursery and bought a fuchsia for the hummingbirds and a couple varieties of coleus and several herbs; parsley, cilantro, chives, basil, oregano, thyme, purple salvia and two mints and a lavender, as well as several pots to put them all in. Watched a couple of William Powell and Myrna Loy movies on Saturday evening. On Sunday we potted all of our new babies. And then after hosing down the front patio, sat and drank a beer in the cool afternoon breeze enjoying the fruits of our labours while trying to be still so as not to frighten off the purple finches as they dipped timidly into the bird bath. Sunday's dinner was a feast of scrumptiousness. Catfish filets marinated and simmered in cajun sauce. Artichokes w/ hollandaise for dipping. Coleslaw and potato salad. It was so very delicious that I almost felt guilty. Almost.
