A long post. Last night. But then I didn't like it. So I didn't publish it.
Then I woke up at 2:30 AM with a headache that has resisted all manner of OTC medication. And chocolate. The nerve of it!
And I still don't like the post. It was about some shopping trips I made to help Courtney stock her pantry using coupons and store deals. Not crazy Extreme Couponing. I mean, who really needs (or wants) 1000 tubes of toothpaste?
The post had pictures too, like this:
and this one:
But in spite of my fabulous photography, I didn't like the sound of the post. Whatever...it happens sometimes!
Mostly I have been working on the mulch project and tending the struggling vegetable garden. The mulch action has turned a corner. Not figuratively, but literally turned the corner to the back side of the garage, where the weeds are on steroids and the generator threatens to leave if I don't clean it up!
These are the before shots. Don't judge me! I've been working on other areas!
Seriously. If I ever had a problem with generator, I would be out of luck getting it serviced!
Now I have the barrier down but the every-other-day rains means it is too wet to drive the tractor on the grass to bring in mulch. I don't know, maybe I should leave it like this?
I've also been weeding and fussing over the vegetables. This is turning into a very "good" year for plant-munching insects. We've had hornworms (every year), inch worms for the first time, sex-crazed Japanese beetles (which are working on the fruit trees now) and recently, grasshoppers.
You really don't want to see pictures of the tortured plants, so here is a photo of the quiche I made for dinner.
It is crustless, and has ham, onions, Parmesan cheese, and the first of the garden's tomatoes, zucchini and basil. Yum!
At Stud Muffin's suggestion I took a Percocet to knock down my headache. And then I had some chocolate, which has done the trick. Now I must go and chase down my head. It seems to have floated off like a liberated helium balloon.
But at least my balloon doesn't hurt anymore. I'm sure it was the chocolate this time!
