beautiful weekend and a mental health day

There was so much good contained in my three day weekend, its hard to know where to start.

Saturday was a fun day with my family. We went over to Linvilla Orchards (one of our favorites!), saw a neat bee display, ate an apple cider donut, and picked out a lilac bush for me as an early mother's day present.

That night four of my college girlfriend's and I went out for a girls night in Philly. It was amazing to hang out with them! Sushi, martinis (well, just one for me... then water, since I was driving home), lots of catching up. Loved every second of it.

Sunday I had to work... but it was a fun, easy event, that went perfectly. And the day...

Today I had taken a mental health day. I had things I wanted to do, but I also put no pressure on myself to get it all done. I was able to be productive, but in a very relaxed way!

It definitely set the tone when my first order of business was lounging in bed for a half an hour playing games on my phone.  ;-)

After that I headed outside. Travis had removed an old bush that had died, so I filled that hole and dug a new one about two feet over (so it wouldn't be directly in front of the dryer vent), where I planted my lilac.

I also seeded the dug area, then planted a little tiny Japanese Maple that Trav won at his work's Earth Day event.

While I was at it, I re-potted my basil plant as well.

After that I ran to the Home Depot and picked up one of Trav's birthday presents (yes, its a garbage can... but he asked for it!).

The biggest thing I wanted to get done was completely sorting through Gwen's closet. I took out the heavy winter clothes, and the clothes that were getting too small for her, and sorted in all her 24 month/2T clothes.

I also cleaned the kitchen counters, did dishes, cleaned the toilet and the shower. Then marinated chicken for dinner (recipe tomorrow!). I made sure to take some breaks for reading too. 

All-in-all, an amazing and rejuvenating three days!
