Money talks … but all mine ever says is good-bye.
OK, it is going to be a great week! All will be well with the world! Now that is out of my system, let’s see how it goes.
While awaiting the clock to strike eleven, we got a call from Rebecca, and she wanted to drop over for a visit. It is MLK Day, and the kids and she were out of school for the holiday. Yeah!
Rebecca brought Sue a new “battery-powered” Makita jacket. Zack found it and could not resist. We are charging up the batteries now! Thanks, kids, for being so thoughtful!
Miss Lilly and I did some serious fruit picking the front yard. We got tangerines, oranges, blood oranges, and grapefruit filling an entire Ralpbh’s shopping bag. Silly Lilly could hardly lift the bag when we were finished!
After they departed, I headed to the yard for an hour to dig weeds and prepare for the spring planting frenzy expected in the next thirty days!
The pomegranate tree was quite prolific this past season, and I need to trim the sucker. I usually go to YouTube and watch a video on cutting before I begin because I can’t remember year to year.
We had lunch with the pizza making it’s finally landing on our plates. I scrambled up three eggs and microwaved some bacon to add to min. We also shared a can of soup! Good groceries.
After lunch, I worked on the Starlighter’s website from the dance on Saturday before going to the back yard and attacking the garden.
We have about 700 square feet in cultivation in the back yard, so I completed about 200 square feet today. I did the most comfortable first as I am just getting started in the garden and plan to sneak up on it!
The hand shovel is all I need, and I can sit on the small walls and work (that was a birthday present to myself a few years ago!).
By 3:00 PM, I was tired, and Shaun Hannity was off-the-air, so I went in to watch a little TV with my bride before cleaning up for the Monday ritual!
We shared a pizza with Irene and then headed home to watch some TV. I finished the Starlighter’s website about 1:30 AM and then crashed hard!
The poor guy below was having gopher problems, and he discovered a new way to deal with them! He apparently poured a gallon or so of gasoline into the gopher It’s pretty funny! I sent the video to Zack and Jon in case they had any ideas!
