Happy sunny morning!
Soupapalooza has begun; soup for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and freezer. Nice timing since, speaking of bathing suits, SIL's pool party is Saturday. Enough said, right, ladies?
Winter, I looked on Rue, and the bathing suit boutique is closed, but it will reappear soon. If you haven't signed up for that site, it's well worth it imo; I got a Perry Ellis bikini this year for about $30. Hautelook has a swimsuit boutique open right now, but imho the brand is ugly! All triangle style bikinis with odd patterns. To each her own, tho. I don't know if you need a coverup for the cruise, but I LOVE my coolibar hooded zip up. It's SPF 50, soft, and cut nicely.
tt, how did the bd boy receive the decoupaged bag? Did GS get the caped crusader, finally?
The garden is fully mature, now, and really filled in with gorgeous, tall, bushy, produce - what a blessing. Had our first beets the other day; I saw them peeking up from the ground and couldn't wait, but they should probably be allowed to grow a little bigger. The carrots and turnips are starting to move the soil so there's a crack down the row. Had some nice rain last night so everything is happy. Wishing we could post pics!!! Would have saved you these 1000 words. ;)
Back to the coffee pot...slept well last night, but I do love my coffee.
ETA: I said "turnips" above but meant parsnips, sorry.
Discretion is the better part of valor.
