I finally got back in my yard this week as well; apparently, the month of May was the rainiest one on record, which meant that the weeds got out of control, and I was out of the routine of doing yard work. I decided to cut the grass after work on Thursday, as the temperature was in the low sixties, and I did some of the trimming with the weed whacker last night. I spent a couple of hours weeding the flower beds today, but although I have quite a bit more to do, it's going to have to wait. I'm going to sit on the beach with a friend tomorrow as a reward for all my hard work, and to make sure I'm not exhausted on Monday.I put the cages around the tomatoes; still don't know how to tell when this variety is ripe.
I went to the Chrysler Museum for a little while this morning to celebrate Knit in Public day, along with quite a few people from my local yarn shop, Baa Baa Sheep, and the Tidewater Knitting Guild. It's a great space, with lots of natural light.

I drove to Richmond yesterday to meet up with Stephanie for the first time since her return from her teaching stint in France. It was wonderful visiting with her and catching up face-to-face. We ate at Kuba, Kuba, one of my favorite Richmond restaurants, then walked around the Fan District for a bit. The traffic on I64 was terrible but that's pretty normal for a summer Saturday.
I have been walking on the weekends, although not on the beach for some reason. Instead, I've been driving to nearby neighborhoods and parking the car, so I can explore new places. I spotted this heron on my walk last Sunday, in the neighborhood near the Hermitage Museum. Norfolk has a lot of wetland areas, which makes the scenery more interesting, I think.
I need to stay home and catch up on the yard work as I've been "running the roads" too much, as my mother-in-law used to say, but I guess the weeds will wait for me.
