Outside My Window… It’s a rainy morning, but I can see bright yellow flowers in my front flower bed, pink impatience in a container near the front door, and my Texas Star Hibiscus right out the window. I can’t wait until it produces big red blooms!
I am thinking… About my mom, who lost her friend and companion of six years yesterday. He was a lovely man and they had some very good times. He will be missed.
I am thankful for… Rain! I won’t have to water plants outside today.
From the kitchen… I heard David making espresso and microwaving breakfast.
I am wearing … A purple t-shirt (with a sparkly butterfly embroidered on it), blue jeans, turquoise Sketcher loafers, white socks (inside out). No bling yet – soon, though, as I need to run to town for groceries this morning.
I am hoping… My Texas Star Hibiscus takes good root in the front flowerbed. I added a good bit of compost, since the original soil there can only be very loosely called soil.
I am reading… I just finished The Kingmaker’s Daughter, by Philippa Gregory. Also still reading The Rosetta Key, by William Dietrich and The End of Diabetes, by Joel Fuhrman, M.D.
I am busy creating… Still crocheting my afghan and creating outside gardens.
I am hearing… High Time by Kacey Musgraves on Spotify in my earbuds and a instructional video that Bill is watching at his computer next to me.
Around the house & garden… We completed the “heat the pool relatively inexpensively” project this weekend. Lots of black tubing running along the length of fence that gets the most sunshine, along with a circulating pump to move the pool water through the tubing. Now we just need warm weather and sunshine, neither of which is in the forecast this week.
In other news… I crossed of several more things on the Gardening To Do List. I’ll post an update later this week.
One of my favorite things… Lists. I like making lists. To Do Lists. Books Read Lists. Birthdates lists. Names lists. I’ll confess, I’m a list maker.
Our Weekly Overview…
Monday: This morning I’ll be making a grocery run. Then this afternoon I need to spend some time cleaning up papers & receipts that are scattered all over my office table. And make a phone call to an Alabama realtor. Bill is working from home all week. David works all week and will have the weekend off. He gets every third weekend off.
Tuesday: I’ll be working on paying bills, since it’s a pay day, and also continuing the quest to keep Quicken up to date. We’re supposed to have rain most of the week, so I doubt I will be getting much gardening done.
Wednesday: Probably more Quicken & office paper work and then, hopefully, some housecleaning. It is desperately needed.
Thursday: More housecleaning?
Friday: Homeschool chat and whatever is left to finish up before the weekend.
Saturday: & Sunday: No plans, other than yard work, pool cleaning, depending upon the weather. And also NASCAR watching.
Here is picture thought I am sharing ..
My lilies are blooming quite nicely. Most of them so far are bright yellow, but this pink one is especially lovely.
