That is IT. I refuse to put up with this horrible overcast weather anymore. I’m declaring that I’m going to start living like it is actually Spring and I don’t care what kind of weather I have to suffer through to do it.

I finally planted some perennials last week in our backyard, which was a big deal because the flowerbed was previously a pit of mud and gravel. It looks soooo much better and I feel pretty proud of myself.

None of the flowers have even died yet.

Also on my list:

  • Clean out our sun room and start putting actual plants in there (right now we’re storing a variety of extension cords, some sort of weird table saw type thing, and a piece of spare carpet in there).
  • Unpack and put together the patio lounge chairs and umbrellas that I bought back BEFORE CHRISTMAS.
  • Find a good deal on some patio chairs that aren’t $100 a piece and allow my friends and family somewhere to sit outside when the sun decides to come back.

Oh, and at some point we need to fix the flat tired on our riding lawn mower, learn how to start it, learn how to operate it, and start mowing our back 4 acres of grass.

That all sounds like a lot of work, so I’m going to start making these Cucumber Watermelon Gin Coolers at lot more often as a reward for even THINKING about doing that much work.

  1. I’m with you on the weather – it FINALLY appears to be getting nice over here in NJ, now I don’t freeze going outside in a light jacket since I refuse to still use my heavy one! These look wonderfully refreshing and delicious 🙂

  2. Watermelon is such a refreshing fruit. I’ve never had it in a cocktail, but it sounds delicious.
