I feel like I have been run over by a truck. OK...Maybe it isn't that bad, but I do hurt all over. Yesterday David left for his TDY. He will be gone until the end of the month or maybe until next month. I really don't mind him going, but right now was not the best time. We have too many projects to do and I am only one person.
Since I am Me, I started on the To Do list today. Why put it off? I was outside at 9:30 this morning and I finally called it a day at 5:30. I am so tired. I did get to mark a lot off of the list and that makes me really happy.
I started out the day planting a few more flowers in the front flower bed. I still need a lot more plants but it is starting to look better. I transplanted an Amarillo from my Mom's house, along with a few more Mexican Petunias. Then I repotted an Air Plane plant to sit on top of my antique milk canister. I tried for almost 20 minutes to get the lid off so I could slide a terracotta pot down inside it. It would look better. But for some reason I have the only one that will not open. So I pulled out the bailing wire and attached a small pot to the top. Now I will plant a few small flowers to help hide the black pot. Not exactly what I wanted but it will have to do.
Dallas finally decided to plant his flower pot. He chose his favorite flowers - Marigolds and Dusty Miller. He loves them. This year I was able to slip an extra Basil Plant into the mix. I don't really know if he noticed it or not. Hopefully he will let it stay.
