  • Mood:


I played hooky today. My boss knew. Most of my co-workers who matter knew. It's sunny, in the upper 50s, and my garden needed me almost as much as I need it.

So, here's what I've done, on my day off:

    Turned off the snooze alarm, repeatedly.
    Made breakfast for John, coffee for both of us.
    Rode to work with John, dropped him off.
    Went to Home Depot, got 6 cubic feetx of soil.
    Hauled my new (and very heavy) rose pots to the front yard.
    Repotted both of the rose trees.
    Realized I needed holes drilled before using *that* planter.
    Went to Weight Watchers. lost 3.8 pounds
    Stopped at Key Arena, got hockey tickets for Saturday night.
    Came home, started split pea soup.
    Started laundry.
    Cleaned out some of the back patio pots.
    Planted 'Black Negligee" Chimafruga (I know I spelled that wrong!) and a bronze-leafed geranium
    Raked some of the back beds, realized I needed a tarp for easier clean-up, and more yard waste bags
    Turned over all the dirt, and added compost to the raised veggie beds.
    Planted 'Seattle'(dark red asiatic) and 'Sweetheart' (yellow and red oriental) lilies in a pretty blue pot.
    Planted 'Pink Perfection' (pink trumpet) lilies in between the roses in the main sun bed.
    Finished the split pea soup.
    Realized I need some 'Casablanca' lilies to make my life complete.
    Now, time to clean up and go pick up John.
