Then Thursday…

It was a little warmer on Thursday and there was a nice breeze, so my outside walks were pleasant.

I went to the Newburgh Grill for lunch and had a gyro and the beef vegetable soup. Then I walked down the strip mall to CVS and bought a few books.

After work, the skies looked a little ominous, but it wasn’t raining! So, I treated Caley and changed clothes quickly.

I went out and got some dirt from the pile. I loaded that into the wheelbarrow and then went to the first hostas. I dug out a good chunk. I put the chunk inside a Westborn bag, watered it and tied it as best I could. I put that into the truck bed. Then I filled in the hole with the dirt and watered that.

I repeated that four more times.

Then I took a bag of mulch and opened it into the wheelbarrow. I visited each divided hostas, covered the dirt with a good helping of mulch and watered that.

Mission accomplished.

Back inside, I started dinner. I quartered the remaining Yukon Gold potatoes and put them in the Dutch oven. I covered them with a bag of sauerkraut. I topped that with a cut-up ring of kielbasa. I brought it to a boil, turned it to simmer and put the lid on it.

About 20 minutes later, I plated an excellent, hearty dinner.

I watched some TV but went to bed by 10:00 p.m. By that time, the Dutch oven was cool, so I stuck that into the fridge.
