Catching Up



Sunday was warm again. I was supposed to go over to Vicky’s place and trim some bushes. Sadly, she sent me a text that her grandmother died during the night (she was in hospice). This would be her father’s mother.

So, I started moving stuff in the garage, but I think it’s going to be more difficult than I had planned.





I took a nap in the hotter afternoon.

I ate some leftovers for dinner, then watched DIY shows until bedtime. Unfortunately, I slept less than an hour. I tried to fall back asleep from midnight on. I finally did around 5:00 a.m. Monday morning. But then I overslept! I woke up around 10:30 a.m.

I contacted my boss and told her I had to shave, shower and get dressed and would be in in about an hour if she needed me today. She said things were pretty quiet so, I could just stay home and take it as a vacation day. So, I did.

They came and cut the lawn about 2:00 p.m. so after they left, I started watering. I hooked up the oscillating sprinkler to water the English garden and the front grass for an hour. I was watering the container gardens by hand. Then I moved the hose and sprinkler to the rear. I watered the herb gardens and the lawn around the patio for another hour.

Finally I put on the square head sprinkler and watered the vegetable garden. I got two tomatoes and a nice sized cucumber.


I turned it into a cucumber sandwich. Once everything was put away and locked up, and went to watch the news.
