it's been a perfect saturday so far. the mini and i got out early before the rain started in earnest, mailed all my outstanding jewelry orders, headed off to get groceries and bagels, then, after breakfast, put on our rainboots and mucked around in the backyard. we put down some grass seed (our lawn is full of weird "bald" spots and the dandelions are threatening to take over even though it feels we're pulling them out in spades) and transplanted some hydrangeas (one of my favorite flowers) near the fence. i'm hoping to throw in a few pots of tomatoes and peppers as the season progresses and maybe we'll be able to pick our own salad during the summertime.

as the mini and i napped this afternoon during a gentle rainstorm, i couldn't help but think that it's the little things in life that make everything worth it. domestic bliss, anyone?
