Happy Tuesday once again. The weeks are flying by, aren't they? This is the last Tuesday in April, already!
We've been having true spring New Hampshire weather lately, colder mornings and days in the 50 to 60 degree range (10 to about 16 degrees C). We have had a lot of wind lately, cold wind too. It's been good walking weather though, but I am waiting (impatiently) to finish my raking for a day when the wind isn't so bad. I want to get some mulching done in a few of my gardens so I need to finish raking. Plus I have more bees coming next week and I've had to get my new hive ready. Life may not be wild and exciting, but it has been busy.
Some of my daffodils are blooming in my garden.❤
This past weekend my husband brokered a nice compromise with my daughter. She wanted to meet me at Costco to get another new pair of glasses. I have the Costco membership so she needs me to get into the optical shop inside the store. (For those of you not familiar with Costco: My daughter doesn't need me to buy her glasses, just to get in as Costco is one of those membership stores, much like Sam's Club or BJ's Wholesale, where they buy items in bulk lots and then you get discounted prices but must have a paid membership card to enter.)
I didn't mind going to Costco as the dogs favorite treats were on finally back on sale, and it was time to stock up. But I was also due a visit to my 92 years old mom who lives 2+ hours away. One of the ways I can drive to my mother's goes right by Costco, which is 1+ hours away. I had mentioned to my husband about wanting to combine my trip to my mother's with Costco due to the price of gas, which like most places, is high right now.
The hubby had been on the phone with our daughter, and he mentioned what I had said about combining trips. Next thing I know I got a text from my daughter saying we should just do both things and go Saturday. That worked for me. I get company driving down to my mother's, my daughter gets to see her grandmother, and then on the way home we can go to Costco.
We had a nice visit with my mom, and before our stop at Costco we had lunch at the 99, which is a New England chain of restaurants.
