I just came inside from watering my flowers, it is very HOT out there. When I watched the weather channel they said that it was 93 degrees here with a heat index of 110!
I wouldn't have even ventured outside but I have a lot of new plants that aren't yet well established, so outside I ventured.
Do you remeber when we tore down the old fence? Well I should say my husband tore it down while I watched!
The above photo was taken shortly after the fence came down.
This is how it looks now. I have a long way to go but it is showing some promise. I have divided some Black-eyed Susan's and Purple Cone flowers. I also bought some new perennials.
It's been very slow going for me with my knees and all of this heat. I've been trying to get up early and work before the sun hits this side of the yard. Since finding out that I can have the surgery, I have been able to sleep much better!
I love rocks. I started this rock flower bed a few days ago but had to quit because of the heat. I don't have to kneel. I have a very nice little Lawn Buddy Cart that enables me to sit and just roll along in the grass. One time while working on my little cart weeding in the driveway, I actually started to roll away! You see the driveway slants and if I lift my feet for just a moment, I can easily roll right out into the street!
I've often envisioned this scene where a car is driving down the street, when all of a sudden this short, fat, screaming woman
with garden gloves on,
comes swiftly rolling out into the street as the car tries to stop in time to miss me!
I guess I have a strange sense of humor because that sounds so funny to me. Anyway the plants are watered and I think by next year things will be very nice back there.
I bought an "American Girl" magazine for my granddaughter Sarah. She spent the night with me on Friday. I had a plant that needed to be put in the dirt so Sarah sat and read her magazine while I did that.
After that we went inside where I made us some homemade cheeseburgers and fries and we watched " Gnomeo and Juliet ".
Oh my gosh that was such a cute movie and right up grandma's ally since she collects gnomes!!
It was a good night.
Notice Mr. Grumpy face! Not my son but my grandson. Wait I will try to find a smiling one....
There, I knew I had one!
I think I'm going to throw something out here. Not that ANY of my kids read my blog but just in case,
I would really like a new camera for Christmas this year. It doesn't have to be very expensive. Just something a little better than what I have now!
It seems that most of my photos are blurry anymore no matter what settings I use. So kids, pool your cash and get mom a new camera!!!
I love you all!!!
What's the use, they'll never read this!!
Ho, Ho, Ho !
