Friday's Shopping Adventure
South Street Linen. They have a website. All linen. Very strong color and pattern (when there is a pattern) and the clothing has "style" which is never easy to find these days. Everything looks like jogging wear.
Today I was determined to get some vegetable seeds into the ground. Only carrots. The beds need work and additions of more compost. So---I wait to see how much rain will fall tomorrow. And it will be getting cold again. The heat and sun are going away for about 6 days.
I did manage to rip out more of the wildly unmanageable mint. The more I remove the more that appears. The stuff I planted under the crabapple tree is looking perky so the transplanting is working out okay. I also planted annuals in my three large pedestal containers. Pinks, reds and yellows.
I purchased another Concord grape plant and G will plant it in the garden next to the lone I purchased last summer. Last year's plant made 6 very tasty grapes. Let's hope it is more generous this year????
Back to work tomorrow. I really NEED two days in a row off after a hectic 9 hour day on Saturdays.
One day is just not enough time to shake it off.
We drove all the way out to the last work site (second job) and where I thought I had left my work tools. They weren't there. And on the way home we stopped to buy on sale $4.48 a pound bone in ribeye steaks and sweet corn (5 for one dollar). Delicious dinner. I haven't eaten that much meat since the Atkins days. It was very, very good. We might do it again tomorrow.
