Today's blog will be quick - probably not funny - and no pearls of wisdom.
Hey - it's 5:30am and I've been up for 2 hours!
Today is planting day....I'll be spending my day in the above patch of dirt.
I have bags of hopes and dreams (seeds, onion sets, potatoes, shallots), and flats of happiness (tomato and pepper plants).
Thankfully, I think we'll see a high of just 82.
Here are my helpers...
Boo - the feline matriarch of our little place.
She looks all sweet and innocent...don't let it fool you - if you try to pet her past her neck, she is 'moody'.
And of course - Stubbs.
Today will be Stubbs last day out. I hope she enjoys it. I feel guilty locking her up - but even with her little stump feet, she could unearth the seeds, and dustbathe in the mulch - and well - it ain't happenin'. She has more than enough room in her run - but I will still feel a twinge of guilt every time I look at her beak.
Thanks for all of your awesome comments yesterday! I wanted to address a few...
Glad to know we've got some Lowe's lovers. Our hometown Home Depot (I actually worked there over 10 years ago) is a hot mess. I call it Home Dumpo - and Glenco calls it Home Peehole.
Beth - thanks for mentioning the D3. I actually had some blood work done a month or so ago, and found out that my D levels were low - and I've been taking a chewable 2000mg D3 and wow - I did notice a difference. I think my bone tiredness was from how I push myself...coupled with some seasonal allergies. I've been Claritin clear for three days now!
Joy - honey will keep forever. It's true. It's the only food source that never eva goes bad.
Lisa - my 'loungewear' looks like Glenco's plain pj bottoms (pictured above with the coffee) that are about two sizes too big, and a worn out Life is Good hoodie. My unkempt humidity frizzed hair completes the outfit.
A few of you mentioned about having my cousin make the beehives.
Law - that would be too much to ask, and he'd say no..: -)...they are a lot of work, the innards of the boxes are very elaborate.
Pam, you are in the wrong business! I have visions of making hives, and selling bees and hives.
One day - maybe when I'm 87.
WanderingBess...you mentioned that I don't mention Glenco much. I must remedy that. I'd be working at the local five and dime without him. He's pretty much the glue that holds everything together around here, and I'd not be able to do half of what I do without him. I tease that he's kind of like Dolly Parton's husband. Ya, she's married! Who knew?
Ok, y'all - It's now 5:42 in the am - there's a nice cool breeze a blowin', and I have a basket of wet laundry waiting for the line. It's now light enough out to hang it, so I must take my leave of you.
So...we've talked about the birds, the bees...this post was about the flowers...you didn't get that did you?
Tomorrow...we'll talk about the trees....
