Get you pads and pens ready because it’s time for the Week In Review.
The Week In Review is a list, in its purest form, not of the things you still need to do, but of all the things you have done in the last seven days. It’s an achievement list, an ode to yourself, a celebration of sorts, and a virtual pat on the back or smack on the ass. Wink, wink, nudge, nudge.

After what seemed like a lifetime of winter, Spring has officially come to Cleveland. I’m beyond thrilled and no longer cursing the cold weather gods, which is a really good thing considering I can easily throw down with the best sailor out there (Earmuffs Ave, earmuffs.).
In any event, the lovely weather has altered the trajectory of our weekly activities, in a good way.
Let’s get listing:
We went on not one, but two ice cream dates. It’s official, Ave is a fan of chocolate (like daddy) and sprinkles (like mommy). Clearly, she has exemplary taste in dessert. It’s a classic example of the (caramel covered) apple not falling far from the tree.
We did some planting therapy in the form of potting flowers. I also snipped and surrounded myself with lilies of the valley because they smell divine. Yet another instance of great things coming in small packages; Ave and I of course being the first.
We had lots of playground dates including a battle with a “round and round slide,” as Ave calls it. After some failed attempts, the tiny human successfully thwarted her demons and conquered the circular highway to hell.
On a less devilish note, we went exploring, Stand By Me, style. I just aged myself, and I don’t care.
We also embraced our inner sloths and broke out the sunglasses and hammock. Next up is a giant vat of sangria. Now if only somebody would make me some. I promise not to share with the toddler.
On the adulting side of the spectrum, I vacuumed out the car, and mowed the lawn, not that you could tell three days later.
Other notable items from last week include a road trip to Buffalo and back, a lunch date with the Hubby, a dinner date with friends, an afternoon visit with a family friend, and another lunch date, this time with grandpa.
The highlight of the week for me though was getting the vegetable garden installed. We’ve got asparagus, cucumbers, zucchini, tomatoes, peppers, kale, broccoli, basil, chives, oregano, cilantro, parsley and whatever else Ave carried to the cart at the local garden center. She was a woman on a mission.It’s your turn. I’d love to hear from you. Link up and get yo’ list on.
What is something you accomplished in the last week? Big or small. Are you growing any herbs or vegetables this year?
