Rainy Days and Fridays

Or something like that… LOL! Today started off great Grim let me sleep in. He took the monsters to school. When I got up, I noticed why I slept like the dead… The temperature had dropped from the 90’s to the 60’s. The day never really got much warmer then that. I did some computer work. Then I got up off my duff and folded all the clothes. I hate folding my clothes. But that is a complaint for another day… LOL! I even folded some of the blankets that were dumped off in my room for lack of a better place for them. So I pulled out the space bags. That job is now sitting on the couch… patiently waiting.
Grim and I went to Lowes today and picked up a couple of boards so that he could make me 2 raised flower beds outside the garden fence. I have 14 lavender plants that need to be out of the little plastic pots. We got dirt to fill the boxes and I got a horseradish bag to plant for $1.25… clearance. I don’t think we like it but I figure that someone might like it when I tell them I have it in the garden… Like I have said before…. Crazy…. LOL! The girls will help me paint and plant them tomorrow if the rain goes away.
The other day I was out in the garden and decided that it needed some sprucing up. So out comes the weed whacker. There is a reason that Grim and Band monster do most of this type of work. Yep, you guessed it…. I broke the darn thing. So today since we had some time and the garage was open. We figured it was time to try and fix it. Luckily, we were able to get it running again. I am so happy…. no money to buy a new one and I don’t want to use the old hand clippers.
I was able to get out and get the beds weeded tonight. I am so happy that my green beans are budding up. Most of the tomatoes have flowers or tiny tomatoes. Still waiting for the Swiss chard to seed. I check everyday. But it is still just flowering. Something has been taking a snack break on the pole beans that I planted. Almost every leaf has a hole in it.
I don’t think I told you, I got a lemon, lime and orange tree from Meijer. They seem to like being outside. They are growing pretty quickly. I just need to make sure I have a place for them this winter. I can’t wait…. I have wanted these for years and never had the money to send away for them.

Gotta Run,
