A great start to the holiday weekend

Driving to work this morning the skies looked ominous and I actually had a few sprinkles but that was it.  Tonight driving home from an evening out, there is quite a bit of lightening, but alas no rain yet.  But they say it is coming and the temperatures are definitely better.  We got quite a bit done at the office today. We had a meeting with County 76 treasurers and talked money management and new policies.  (I forgot to take a picture!)  Worked on handouts and talks for the coming week and left feeling pretty organized.

I did water in spite of the forecast, because I had wilting plants. I have loads of monarchs flying around the butterfly weed, and the Jubilation gardenias are blooming nicely. Their scent coupled with the Harlequin glory bower is quite nice in the garden.

Then tonight Clay, Katie and I had dinner in Argenta.  Afterwards we walked along Main street and enjoyed the Pulaski County MG project plantings all along Main Street.

We then walked to meet our friends Harry and Ann at The Joint to see Just Shut Up and Drive.  It was our second time to go to The Joint and we are just so impressed with the quality of the performance.  They have three performers who perform every Friday and Saturday with musical sketch comedy.  On Tuesday nights they have stand up comics, Wednesdays is comedy improv and Thursdays they have live music. If you haven’t been, you really need to go.  Tonight they had a packed house and we laughed all night long!  A great beginning to the holiday weekend.
