We are so busy getting things done
before Chelsea's big party on Sunday.
Last week it was so hot and humid
that I moved like a slug.
Yesterday and today are like precious
gifts to me. It is in the 70's and
very low humidity.
I can work in this.
Chelsea, Jonathan and I found some
wonderful flowers on deep discount
yesterday so we will plant them today.
The deck furniture needs to come out
of Mom's shed and get cleaned up for
use at the party.
Then we will try to sell it at our
yard sale next weekend.
Warren is power washing the deck.
He has part of it re-sealed but it
looks like the sealing of the rest
will have to wait.... or we will
kill our guests with the fumes.
It takes a few days to air out.
Last week when Warren wanted to work
on the deck there were thunderstorms
every day he had opportunity to do so.
This week's gift of weather
also includes no rain.
Not so good for the farmers
but it works for us.
Jonathan is busy spreading a huge
dirt pile. Erosion had taken
a lot of our topsoil from a spot
in our side yard. A couple of years
ago a neighbor gave us a load of
dirt and said he would come and
spread it out. He forgot and we
have not wanted to bug him about it.
So, at long last, Jonathan is getting
a workout and spreading this soil.
Next we will have to plant and water
it....never at a loss for things to
do around the house and yard.
The photos in this post are of Mikey's
garden. The Russian Sage is once again
very full and pretty. The roses are taking
a breather and should be blooming
again in a few weeks.
How is the weather
where you are?
See you later!
Thanks for taking time out of your
busy day to stop in.
