Weekend Update

I had to go to my optometrist on Saturday. The nose piece on my glasses was bent in and has been annoying my nose. I tired to fix it, but was afraid I'd break it. He's up in downtown Farmington and they open at 10:00 a.m., so I headed out about 9:30. They fixed it in no time and I headed back home.

I went to Home Depot and got three more eggplant, some fertilizer and some tree fertilizer stakes. The place was a madhouse and I spent more time in line, trying to check out, than I did getting my stuff.

Back home, I changed into shorts and a t-shirt. I went out and planted the eggplant. I mixed the fertilizer into the dirt and then watered the garden. While the square head sprinkler was doing its thing, I hand-watered all the container gardens.

I shut off the hose and reeled it in. Then I went inside. It was already too hot!!!

Sidebar: We have at least three days of temps over 90 degrees and humid coming up. It's not going to be pretty.

I took a nap in the afternoon. The doorbell woke me up. It was Amanda who was on her way home after an unusual Saturday workday. The restaurant was registering folks for a car show at "The Barn" on Sunday.

Sidebar: "The Barn" is an old barn on Middlebelt and Chicago and is usually a farmer's market on weekend. Jake and Carla introduced me to it years ago.

Anyway, she brought me a t-shirt and a VIP pass to the show! [Photos to follow]

I was hungry after she left, so I made a pizza. I ate some of that watching an old movie.

It was already hot on Sunday morning when I woke up. I ate some toast with honey for breakfast.

I got cleaned up and decided to check out the car show. But, when I drove there, it was packed!!! And, where I would normally park, it was roped off with more old cars displayed. There had to be at least 1,000 vintage cars everywhere. I gave up and drove home.

I stayed inside in the air conditioning the rest of the day, watching movies and eating cold pizza.
