The weekend is upon us and Paul has more chores to do. Sue is again resting/sleeping so Paul gets to attack the jobs that need doing. Today he trimmed the trees along the side year as the figs are dormant and do not mind getting some major branch reductions.
Even though our neighbors are quite liberal, Paul still takes in their trash cans when they are not home (he hates to see the wife dragging them in and the the kids, when they are home, never do). Today he took them in so he could see what the fig tree looked like from their side of the yard.
Then off to the Home Depot so get some small indoor pots and some strawberries. We had many of our indoor plants so root-bound they could not even take any water! As plants grown in containers mature, their developing roots eventually will run out of space. When this happens, the plant becomes “root–bound”. The roots will try to escape out any drain holes in the pots.
The plants were removed from their original containers, in some cases split into two plants and in each case they got a “root-cut”. Gently removing the roots which were so close together they formed an impenetrable barrier to water! They are all nice and happy in their new pots.
Paul also attacked the wrapping paper in the closet condensing five shopping bags down into a single plastic container 12x12x18!
We were supposed to go to the Cerritos Performing Arts Center but Sue was not up to it so we called Amy and Joe… They got to sit in row three center amongst 2,000 screaming “grey hairs”. Doo-Wop forever!
Paul cooked up quite a dinner but alas, Sue just picked at it as she is not hungry! Poof!
