It was an absolutely gorgeous day on Tuesday! We hit a high of 82 degrees (the record was 84 today) with almost no humidity. I could feel it even as I took the trash can out in the morning.

I went to Big Boy for lunch. I had the Classic Big Boy (first time in some 20 years) but got the broccoli and ham soup instead of fries (I'm still not certain that's a healthier choice).

From there I went across the parking lot and got two spray cans of flat black high heat engine paint at O'Rielly's (don't ask).

Walking outside in the afternoon was actually uncomfortably hot!

Back home after work, I go in the trash can, then treated the cats and gratefully changed into shorts and a tee. I went outside and watered all the container plants up front, the two new plants I put in and the hostas I moved. I also watered the mailbox garden. The sweet alysium is coming in nicely. I just wish I'd bought six more...


I also took pictures of the culvert cleanout for you.

The iris are blooming like crazy!!!

I cut more lilacs for the house.

Then I went out back. I watered the window box, the raised bed herb garden and the herbs (chives and oregano) in the ground. Then I stuck the hose (turned on low) in the reflecting pool and let it run for about a half hour. This not only cleans out the water, but the overflow waters the Japanese maple.

Back inside, I warmed up the rest of the steak, the grilled green onions and the sweet corn. It was a delicious leftover meal!

With nothing on TV, I watched the finale of The Voice (I occasionally watch it). I was hoping for the guy from Michigan (Al-Saadi - he plays a wicked guitar) but I knew who would win (Alisan), and she did. Then I went to bed.


  1. The classic Big Boy... that's like a Big Mac?

  2. Pretty much. McDonald's stole the idea from Big Boy.
