Paul watched Rhiannon Saturday afternoon so Mom & I could have a lunch out with the gals.
The day before I had transplanted tomatoes and I started on the green peppers the morning of our lunch get together. Since it seems that I'm going to be awash in tomatoes and peppers this spring, I figured I could transplant a few and bring each of our lunch buddies a tomato and pepper plant:
I pulled out my stash of Hillbilly Tupperware and made the yogurt cups into convenient tiny planters! I poked a few holes in the bottom of the cups and used the lids (not shown) as trays underneath to catch any seeping water. They will still have to stay indoors, but I think the cups will be big enough that the plant will have enough room until it's time to plant them outside.
Our lunch outing was wonderful. The weather was warm enough that we were able to have our lunch alfresco! Good food (notice I didn't say "healthy" as I had fried chicken livers), good company and of course, lots of laughs! Oh, and my Stepfather even stopped by as we were leaving and picked up the tab for Mom and I along with an order of chicken livers for himself!
So since I figured I "saved" six or seven bucks on lunch (thanks Wally!), I made my way to the little local library just a block away that just so happened to be having their semi-annual book sale:
Where I spent five of my "saved" seven dollars. Technically, the books only came to three dollars, but I'm a sucker for libraries and gave them five. And even at five dollars, I still felt I got a great deal. I got a few school books, some fun books for Rhiannon and two little animal story books for me and you......can you say "Giveaway"?
