After a week of mostly catching up on sleep, I'm thrilled to count down the hours until our weekend guests arrive: my parents! Believe it or not, life has been so crazy for them that they still haven't seen our house, so we have lots of show and telling to do. I couldn't be more excited to reveal our completed projects, brainstorm our new ones, and most of all, relax... they need it just as much as we do!
The past couple of times they've come to DC we've put them to work, mostly out in the garden. (You might remember that my mom is the one and only "Plant Whisperer.") Life was too crazy for me to do anything but a few pots of herbs and flowers this year, but I have grand landscaping plans for next year, and I can't do it any of it without the help of my very own PM. So no back-breaking work for these two this weekend, but in between our gin and tonics, strolls to Eastern Market, breakfasts in and dinners out, I do hope we can sneak a few landscaping discussions into the schedule, with a planting weekend on the agenda for fall.
I will, of course, report back. Hopefully with a concrete design that'll turn our side yard into a true urban garden. Or, you know, East Coast green chile enterprise.
Have a fabulous weekend, everyone!
