Yesterday i made some real progress in the gardening. I got the dirt, a dozen bags, and I found a store that sells more seeds. I put he dirt in the newly refurbished / lidded planters, and am ready to plant. There’s two more planters in the backyard too.
Wonder where I can get some cow seeds? I’d love it if I could grow some hamburgers!
It was a really good weekend. I got the front yard mowed in between downpours, I fixed a silly mistake I made on one of the anti chicken lids on the planters. I re-did the tripod that is helping the Otaheite apple tree stand up straight (I think it’s slowly falling over since it fell in Hurricane Grace and I stood it back up). I cleaned the floors in the whole house. I dissected a cherry tomato and planted the seeds. (We’ll see how many come up.) And I went to a “Sashing” for the Cayman Islands Miss Universe contestants. It was super fun!
Lisa is sponsored by One Heart, and she works there. I was invited to attend by the owner. I was so happy to be there!
Sunday morning I slept 90 minutes later than usual, which is huge for me. I barely stayed up past my normal bedtime. I got up at 6:30! Can you believe it!?
And now it’s a back to work Monday. Weather’s supposed to improve. I can mow the back yard this week!
Seems like suddenly, things around the house are out of control. The yard is a disaster because I didn’t mow. (weed killer experiment). The inside needs cleaning really bad. The floor especially. And I have repairs to do and a tree to put in the ground and I need to make a list.
Maybe I should take a couple vacation days and do some work around the house.
We’re almost half way through the week. Looking forward to the weekend already. There’s not much to report on around here.
Monday is here at last! It was a good weekend. Saturday was the 1 Mile Sea Swim, I came in 308 out of 550.
Sunday i took he dogs to the beach, then gave baths and then made the third anti chicken lid for the third planter. I still have to put the screen on it. Also, I have to finish refurbishing the original planter #1.
Maybe we’ll get some weather coming, maybe just rain, but I won’t get a ride-the-scooter week like I wanted.
But, all is well and I hope you have a wonderful week.
Back to work today. I’m glad to be back on my routine.
This long weekend I built another anti cat, anti chicken lid for one of the planters. When I get done, all three will have them. The original, which is probably over 10 years old, is being refurbished, planter and lid.
I transplanted my beet and lettuce sprouts in the grower yesterday. I hope they survive. I’ve got peppers on the back porch. I put them in my pasta sauce and my salads . I’m going to have to start giving them away..The lettuce I can really use, lettuce is expensive here!
I have a house and yard full of plants. More coming!
My second growing of bell peppers seems to be going much better than the first attempt. I was planning on posting a picture of the flowers I had yesterday, but they’re gone, replaced with pea sized peppers!
im so excited!
its supposed to be sunny today, then rain all weekend, all next week, and all next weekend. That’s as far as the extended forecast can stretch. Hopefully they’ll change their minds and throw some sunny days in the mix!
All i planned on doing this weekend was cleaning the house. I failed gloriously. Saturday I went to breakfast with friends, then lunch with a different group of friends, then saw the Batabanu Carnival Parade.
Sunday I went diving then went to a yoga class, and then mowed the yard . Below are some underwater pictures from yesterday.
And now it’s back to work on a Monday and I don’t mind going.
