I am a happy camper!!!

It was cold when I left for work on Monday (48 degrees) I was going to wear a jacket, but it was supposed to get up to 77 in the afternoon, so I just wore a long sleeve shirt.

I took in one of Michelle’s food containers filled with bean soup for her and two quarts of soup for Vicky’s family. When I walked over to Michelle’s building, I found she had made soup over the weekend as well! It was that kind of weather.

I went to Max and Erma’s for lunch and got a salad. Then I went to Lowe’s and got a bag of crocus bulbs and a bag of mulch. The mulch is for some of my transplants. Finally, I got the truck washed, as it’s not supposed to rain again until Friday.

I gave Vicky her soup just before I left for home.

It was funny. When I pulled in the driveway, I immediately noticed how wilted my hanging plants were. Oh, crap! Did I miss watering them or did the cold get them?

So, I treated the cat, changed clothes and got the watering can. It wasn’t until I was watering the second one that I happened to look down and saw my flagstone had been installed!!!
After over a month of waiting and several missed dates, Jon-Boy Landscaping came through. And, in spite of my fears (or rather Margaret’s theory), they did it right! They dug out the sod, laid down sand and then put in the stones.

I’ll have to fill in some dirt and add mulch, but it looks better than I’d pictured it.

I did add some mulch in places where the dirt was exposed around the transplants. Then I went inside. I cleaned out the fridge and got the trash ready for Tuesday's pick up.

I warmed up some soup for dinner. I watched the movie, “Tombstone” and then went to bed at 11:00 p.m.


  1. The landscaping looks amazing! I really changes the look of the house. Nice job John Boy...for once.

  2. Yes, I agree with Jake and Carla....looks great
