5. I was so preoccupied with getting ready for my parents and then them being here that I didn't pick up a library book to read until it was past due. A week past due. I thought it was a 3 week book but turns out it was a 7 day book. Oops. Between the lateness on that book and on The Goldfinch (1 day late), I owed $1.05. I always feel so incredibly guilty when I keep a book past due and owe money.
6. The book I didn't realize was a 7 day book was Steeped in Evil, the latest tea shop mystery by Laura Childs. I always enjoy these books, quick reads, not too deep, light and fun. Good thing, too - I realized on Easter it was already a week past due so I spent Monday afternoon and evening reading it so SP could return it on Tuesday.
7. As usual I am very happy to be going in for my 'every 7 weeks color the gray' appointment this weekend. It also means we'll be driving right past Portman's and I'm pretty darn sure it's ham salad weekend!
8. I think SP might have to mow this weekend. Last weekend he got the lawnmower ready for mowing season (oil, filter, etc.). He also got the garden soil prepared. Garden frog is ready for some plants and some warmer, sunnier weather:
