Attention Kmart shoppers! Would the owner of this snakeskin under the shrub please come claim their property and promptly relocate to another farm?!?
This is a post about having nothing to post about, well, because I'm so boring! Oh, I'm doing stuff and enjoying having Almost Grown home, but nothing is really blog worthy.
Same sh*t, different day.
Yesterday, I weeded the spaghetti squash bed, which for some reason, all the weeds have taken up residence in. Then I used the last of the nasty, soggy straw from last year to mulch the bed in the hopes that the weeds go to some other neighbor's veggie patch. All in all, the job took longer than I thought it would.
With the sun full up, and me in full sweat, I decided to tackle another area of metal edging, especially since as he drove away to work, I told Stud Muffin that I was going to do it. Me and my big mouth!
AG struggled out, blurry-eyed, as I banged away at the edging with a mallet right outside the bedroom window. But with a shot of coffee in her system, she readily helped me with the last half of the job.
Okay, a bit wonky, but we were following the lay of the land!
Having sweated out more liquid than I had taken in, I had to peel my clothes off like a wet bathing suit before taking a cool shower. A couple of glasses of water later, and I simply had to lay down for a bit of a rest. Okay, I admit it! It was only 10:30, but I had worked hard!!
Then it was homemade chicken salad sandwiches and homemade vinegar and honey coleslaw for lunch. After a quick trip to the Piggly Wiggly, it was home for housekeeping. (I told you this was exciting stuff!)
Laundry was run, tables were dusted, AG Swiffered up enough dog hair to make a puppy, and I vacuumed up the "puppy" and residual grit and dirt. Sassy, who thought the old vacuum was a playmate and would bring it balls to nudge, is not so sure about the new canister vac. She keeps trying to engage it in a rousing game of fetch, but it just doesn't "get it!"
AG was ready for her nap (a requirement of the recently graduated) and I went to my studio to finish an order of produce bags that had sold in the morning. Stud Muffin came home from work early, startling the sleeping dogs on the studio floor, and I thought they were going to attack the car as it went up the drive!
Dinner of spaghetti and ice cream sundaes followed by some relatively boring television rounded out the day. AG and I harvested the first of the snow peas, which I would show you, but we ate them right there in the garden!
Peas still filling out.
Bedtime came early, as we (AG and I) have hot plans (literally) to start painting the fence this morning before it gets too hot. Going to be 89 later today and 91 tomorrow.
Left to right as seen from front porch.
Dog doesn't need painting!
Not too much fence to paint.
Aren't you glad you popped in for a visit??
