Why I love spring... POTD

This week I was fortunate enough to score a day off and was able to spend it with She Who Rules. It's been several weeks since "The Girls" have been able to hang out, and the sun was out, so we made plans to hit up the park to feed the ducks. On our way out I realized that my itty bitty change purse (containing my bank card and drivers license) was still in the ambulance. Perfect. I called McHottie partner and arranged to intercept the truck at a local hospital. She Who Rules LOVES the ambulance, so she wasn't terribly put off by the delay in our park outing.

Waiting for the truck to show up. Luckily this hospital has a pond.

Waiting patiently for my ambulance to arrive... Actually She's waiting for ANY ambulance to arrive.

And still waiting. Not so patiently now.

"No! I don't WANT to smile."

Luckily (for us both) the truck was right around the corner, and we were able to get my change purse. Unfortunately, She didn't want to leave. At this point mom had to put the camera away and drag a screaming three year old back to the car. It was.... fantastic. Needless to say the pond at the hospital was as close as we made it to the park that day.

Yesterday I decided to visit the local Farmer's Market to pick up a few flats of flowers. Last year I wasn't able to plant anything being that I was completely engrossed in Medic School. I swore to myself that this year would be different.

Obviously I have my work cut out for me. This is what you get when you're too busy to clean out your flower beds.

One of a few flats of Marigold flowers that I picked up at the local Farmer's Market.

Procrastinating once again... See... I don't have to deal with creepy crawly bugs if I'm taking pictures instead of actually digging. I DETEST creepy crawly bugs. So obviously that makes me a great gardener, right? :)

Then Mr. Epi brought me out a glass of Catawba wine. YUUUUUM. Of course I only managed about four ounces before I knocked the glass over and simultaneously sat in it. I rock.

A few hours (and several incidents of me screaming when something crawled over my hand) later, we two of the front yard flower beds mostly complete. I need to pick up some mulch today to finish it off.

Mostly done.

Hopefully I can finish both sides today... The other flower bed just needs to be cleaned out (no digging means less creepy crawly's!) and of course the mulch...

Aw, that was a cute post. Her facial expression is priceless! PS... I was totally at Rock on the Range at Crew Stadium! You actually may have treated one of the girls I came with... she tripped and thought she broke her foot. Small world!
