We are hoping to be able to finish the deck extension but J17's grad party but the weather hasn't been cooperating with that either. At least that is a project that isn't the end of the world if it doesn't get done. I do hope to get the landscaping done on the south side of the house done before the party since that area ties into the deck and herb spiral. My little plants arrive this week (including my supposedly hardy Rosemary!) so I need to get places ready to accept them.
Yesterday, I did get the dining room walls painted and did some more work on J17's quilt. This evening I finished transplanting all of my remaining seedlings. I've got my plants sorted out into flats already, I've got an email in to my friend Jim to see what starts he wanted and the rest go to the plant sale on the 13th.
I did get the menu for the party finalized. Most everything can be prepped in advance and I'm keeping it pretty simple so I'm not actually too worried about pulling it off. Financially, it may be interesting. We've had extra expenses with graduation, college fees and deck construction that finances are going to be tight this month. I'm just going to have to be an extra good bargain shopper this month and we'll have to tighten belts a bit to make things work. But, J17 is worth a little extra expense for her party. It's my little girl all grown up. (Don't tell her... but I'm going to miss her when she's off to college!) She is a pretty awesome girl. I am kind of hoping to be able to finish her quilt in the next two weeks as well as a graduation/18th birthday present.
