Boy....What a Day!
The first thing this morning I went outside to do some watering. We haven't had any rain since.....I can't remember. Anyway, I found this.
Do you think it is pregnant....or just ready to burst and wake me up?
I took a chance and did the watering before I repaired the hose. All went well. So I went inside and went down in the basement to get some clothes out of the dryer. While I was down there I heard all this running around upstairs. We have hardwood floors so you can hear everything. Oh, it was just the princess "Miss Banana" doing her usual morning crazy cat business.
Or was it???? It sounded like a little more then just "Miss Banana"!! I think I have heard this commotion before....
It was the princess all right chasing one of these around the house! It's not the first time...oh no! The first time was 6AM a few years ago when I was getting ready to leave for work!
I called for "The Italian" since he was still in bed reading. He came down and took the princess upstairs and locked her in the spare bedroom. After a few minutes, Alvin (the almost blind cat) realized that something was going on and came in the house to help! Well, it really did take too long for us to chase that little chipmunk out the back door. Needless to say, the back door was closed for the day.
After that was settled I loaded up my water containers and headed for the plots. "The Italian" was going out with his daughter for a few hours so I gave him a list of things we needed from the store. The store shopping is his job, not mine. I just hate it. Things went well at the plots. The water truck is there and I spent several hours watering the entire plot. This was the first time that I have watered everything over there thoroughly. I have not been watering there much. I think that it is best for those plants not to get used to too much watering. They need to fend for themselves a bit! I was also thinking that maybe if I watered really well, it would rain! Fat chance of that!
I came home feeling good. As soon as I got home "The Italian" came in with items I requested from the store. Look what I found in the bag.....
Yep, paper towels. They were on the list. But you have to understand me. There are two big no no's in life. One, no sweat pants! I just hate them! Two, only white paper towels... oh, and only white bed sheets! I guess that is three. What is with the green dragonflies and yellow butterflies?? Yes, I'm going to have to look at them in the kitchen for a month or maybe two months.....since we hardly ever use paper towels. OK, I can live with them. I have definitely seen worse.
After the shock of the paper towels I decided to take a bath. It looked like "The Italian" and I were going to get to spend a nice relaxing evening together. So, I put on a short dress instead of my usual long tied died hippie dresses that I love to garden in.....only to realize this
Yes, that's my arm on the left and my leg on the right!! Do you think that I should have asked him to get me a stronger sunscreen at the store??? I guess it is time to start wearing my short overalls to the plots!
