A birthday week and more gardening | Weekly Snapshot

Happy Ascension Day! Happy Memorial Day! Happy Africa Day! No matter what you are celebrating this weekend (or not), have fun and stay safe!

The Boy Turned TwoThe little guy turned two this week. He sort of understood that it was a special day and that he was the star of the show. He took a lot of pleasure in all the birthday songs that his family sang to him - he also added some of his own tunes to the mix. Honestly, some days it feels so hard to believe that he is not a baby anymore. With my daughter, I felt the passing of each day and her birthdays appeared to be following the Martian calendar - they felt very far apart. But this guy has blazed through the past two years, I almost feel that I've missed months in between. I'm worried that if I pinch myself and blink twice, I may catch him packing for college. Yikes! 
Happy birthday, little guy! May you continue to have fun breaking apart things - whether that's your take-apart truck or your sister's carefully built Leg…

The Sunday Salon: Spring cleaning and Spring decor

The Sunday 
Salon.com

Good morning, Saloners! Not too early in the morning now, but I'm just sitting with my tall cup of tea and breakfast to start my day. The husband left early this morning to attend a training in Dallas, and he won't be back until next week Sunday. Both the dog and I are missing him already - the dog probably more because she doesn't know why her pack member left her, lol.

I've sort of tasked myself to do some Spring cleaning and Spring decor this week. We finally bought bookshelves and a new desk for myself for our office room. It's been sidelined for a long time and finally I managed to get some great deals this week. I'm now penning down ideas to decorate this room and the master bedroom so I expect more shopping on the cards this week.

It has been a very busy at work this week that I had to put in some overtime to get things completed. We are fast approaching our big date for releasing the product we've been working on for three years now. It's a very exciting time for us and that's partly the reason why I have been overclocking this week. So not a big deal, but I definitely hope to stick to my salaried hours this week. Moreover, we are expecting some wet and icy weather tonight and tomorrow morning, This coming after a brief spell of what summer could be like is a little torturing. People were actually outside in shorts and tanks yesterday and the icecream parlors were seeing a lot of customers. Now tomorrow, they're going to be back in gray jackets.

Rest of the day today, I'm hoping to browse around Pinterest and Etsy, and when I'm bored, read the very delightful Frangipani by CĂ©lestine Hitiura Vaite, set in Tahiti. I've also been knitting a lacy shawl for Spring that's going slow, so I may spend some more time on it.

I hope you enjoy your time alone and have a good time decorating. I really want a new desk and bookshelves, but I'm waiting until the next time we move to make that investment... just settling with what I have for now.

I need a new bookshelf for an area in my living room. There isn't one there currently but I was thinking of a low, long one for behind the soft.


The weather here was glorious this past weekend but my twelve hours at the track meet, sitting and working in full sun was too much for me! I am still recovering but I didn't get burned which is odd because I always do.

Good luck with your cleaning/decorating, spring time always makes me want to do that too!
Looking forward to your thoughts on Frangipani, I've wanted to read it for a while.

Interesting to see that you were reading "Frangipani" since I just finished "The Frangipani Hotel." Never even heard that word before and suddenly there are two books out with it in the title.
