We are just over half way through the three day Memorial Day Weekend. I thought I’d put up an open forum so we could share what we are up too. I am hopeful that I still have time to get some things done in and out of the house before the weekend is over! I spent my morning (errr…afternoon) doing some research for one of two posts I have been working on. I will put up some RHOA tea later tonight after I get some house and garden stuff done and maybe get some sun on my face! I’ve been holding a few things to triple check my sources.
I will be having a BLT in a bit. I admit I am having a hard time getting decent bread for this purpose. There is a German bakery practically in walking distance so I really need to get around to checking them out I suppose. My Gerber daisies a blooming like crazy for the most part. I have them in three pots and one is one of those concrete pots on a stand and it is not big enough to hold all the water they need. I finally realized why these usually die on me. They need a ton of water every dayum day. So fart I am keeping them all alive.
My tomatoes are kind of a mixed bag. My early girl has an issue. That issue is apparently death. It is the one that gave me my first and third tomatoes and has two more ripening but the plant appears to be a goner. five or so other plants are in the same area and doing just fine. It’s crazy.
I am trying to get some work done around the house. I’m making just a tiny bit of progress. Which is more than usual. I’ve needed to change the light bulb in my living room and library for… I dunno months on the library and maybe a year on the dining room? So I am taking that as a personal victory.
Meanwhile, her in the south no one ever would cut their grass or use a leaf blower on a Sunday. It’s just not done. I suppose it started with the whole biblical instruction that Sunday is a day of rest and reflection or whatever, but it has just never been done. Today the big Mexican house has a guy blowing leaves. This never happens and they have been living there for years. They run a construction company and when he has more guys than he needs he puts them to work on his yard. He has the nicest house and the nicest yard in the hood by far. But he has never had employees blowing leaves on Sunday. Hmm it didn’t last long. I think the owner stopped him. Last Sunday the military family up and cut the grass! I am not liking the end of this southern tradition.
I am dying to hear what is going on in your neck of the woods!
