To say I've been busy is an understatement. Everything is happening all at once, and yet I seem to be spinning my wheels and getting nowhere. So to try and regain control, a bit, I decided to wash the slip covers on my chair and ottoman and move them into the new studio. Sigh. I watched the birds at the feeder for a full six minutes, and then back to the reigning chaos.
Over a week ago I got some curtains and a rod for my bedroom window and the stuff sat and waited. I knew it was merely a 30 minute job but so many things diverted my attention. Today it rained and that meant no golf, and so while Dave napped I got out the ladders, drills, mollies and hammer and began to do it myself. Of course I then had to wake Dave to hold the other end of the curtain rod. It was finished in no time. Sigh of satisfaction. Only one and half years to get curtains up in my bedroom!
I keep meaning to take pictures of the garden before it engulfs the house, and in between downpours today I snapped a few images. Those tomatoes have their own zip code.
We moved the trees back to the patio in an attempt to have shade, and they are providing some...but the real reason we moved them is because I had to make space for the new fig tree bed.
So...days later it was time to pot up the three trees and while I was at Lowe's scouting out potting options (they should pay me for how often I drop them into the conversation) it occurred to me that for the cost of the pots+soil I could build another big concrete block bed.
O.K. I did. 48 blocks and now I have a new fig bed. Woowoo! It took one afternoon to build and fill it and then the next day, Memorial Day, I finished it off with plants and the trees. Soil was on sale, of course!
And then the rain came and it rained steadily for two whole days. Good.
At the edge of the patio we have three volunteer watermelons, plus one hard to see dillweed plant. Be aware of where you spit seeds this summer. They might take up residence.
