I spent a lot of time outside on Tuesday. Unfortunately, my cell phone was still on the charger. Which meant I missed an invitation from Amanda to join her and her mother for lunch.

However, I did roll up to the little grocery store on Joy and Beech and got some celery and green peppers.

Sidebar: Why do they call the drawers in the fridge "crispers"? They either turn stuff into soggy shit or mold.

Anyway, I made a simple macaroni salad. When I had the macaroni cooked, I mixed it with chopped onions, green peppers, mayo and a little mustard. I stuck it in the fridge to chill.

Then I went back outside to plant the raised bed herb garden (along with my old friend, the shy gargoyle), the dead oregano garden (for over five years the oregano lived through the winter. It died though, last year) and the kitchen window box.

Let me see if I can figure out the before and after pictures...

I cleaned up afterwards and went inside for the night. I didn't feel good.


  1. Are you ok, now???
    why rocks in the herb gardens?

  2. Better. Not rocks, cedar wood chips.

  3. I am sorry brother, but three periods are all you are supposed to use. Spent a long time as an editor. so I'm just saying.
