I haven't posted in a while, and I haven't done a Popinjay in weeks...but, instead of dwelling on all the reasons why my blog has been so neglected (stupid dumb old laptop), we're just going to move forward.
That said, today's Popinjay word is ACCOMPLISHED.
This was a bit of a crazy weekend, the weather wasn't even so much Spring Like as it was Summer Like here in New England, and after a long, dark and dreary winter, we New Englanders know to take advantage of every second of good weather we can get, especially when it shows up early and unexpectedly.
So, I spent all day Saturday outdoors. My goal was to soak up as much sunlight and vitamin D as humanly possible.
I drove around all day with the windows and sunroof open. Ran a bunch of errands, did a little shopping, and then came home and headed out to my balcony.
And that was when I noticed how dingy and dirty and gross my balcony was from a winter of neglect and weather beatdowns.
So I set to sweeping the deck, cleaning off my potted plants, watering them in expectation of hopefully some new buds coming out of the perennials I planted last year...
And then I grabbed my brand new chair cushion, and took a seat out in the setting sun...
But not before I made myself a drink...
Outdoor summer day in April...mission accomplished.
