Bbbbaaaaa Booom

Image by SnaggleTooth May 2016


We're approaching that over-worked week-end again to begin the Summer business Boom. Summer heat made an early appearance here Wednesday, n I didn't even need a hoodie doing errands for first time this year.

I'd like to say the extra days off to begin my week had me more rested, but I never did get much sleep.

A co-worker I've known for about a decade died in a horrible traffic accident, leaving small children n a wife. I also work with his brother, so I skipped that day of sleep to attend the funeral.

Then Pipes at the house broke, so
Got woken all day with pipe fixing right out my window n in basement under the bed only 3 feet away!

 Got super grumpy. Still am, tho folks at work don't understand making sarcastic jokes doesn't mean I'm happy, but trying to deal with all this crap. Like in the show "*M*A*S*H*." I feel like Hawk-eye, like seems like I'm doing too much that I don't want that doesn't matter.

 Got alot dug out n planted in the back garden. Already having fun with a multitude of insects eating it all, like slugs n ants, plus caterpillars. The Gnats n Mosquitoes are out in force already too.

I put chicken wire or hardware wire over all the plants. Suspect a bunny may have eaten my first $4 zucchini plantling, n the bugs are still taking pieces after using "7" dusting powder. "Midnight Madness" Petunias out front again, n new impatiens are still alive. Sprung for a little "Chocolate Mint" plant today. It just smells so good, like a Girl Scout Cookie!

For Mother's day I got some "Smart Pots" which are different, feel like fabric. Got some planted to see how it goes.
I also got a beautiful, custom made Mother's Charm bracelet with birthstones on it.


Past week at the Library got first 2 "Pirates of the Caribbean" movies, last seen ages ago on VHS at the old house. Now need to find the 3rd dvd I know is in my room somewhere, because I prefer seeing the entire series of everything.

Time for everyone to gear up for Memorial Day Week-end. I know I have a good flag pic on my cam somewhere. Found it in a March file...

Remember n honor all the fallen heroes of the Wars that gave us our country n freedom.


As is Said in a toast led by King Theoden of Rohan in the "LOR The Two Towers" film, (n often rattling thru my mind);

A pic of the weedy garden out back. If you look closely violets are everywhere, n Hector the Chiwawa is in the far Background. I have trouble killing pretty flowers to plant things, so I dug them up n put some in my room...

Now I have 2 outdated posts from last week, n nothing ready for this one...

Internet Interruptous

Finally the week-long rains ended, n all I need now is time n ambition to get more plant stuff squared away. Got Petunias for boxes out front, n still the back veggies to do.

Image by SnaggleTooth spring 2016

Really I want to just sit n do nothing lately - I hurt the feet in bad shoes that discintegrated after less than 3 weeks at work, n have bought more expensive ones to try. I'm tired with tree-pollen head-aches, n the Oak trees aren't even out yet.

Image by SnaggleTooth spring 2016

Two days off are never enough. After next week's Days Off I have two more vaca days scheduled. Hopefully I'll be feeling better after that. These perfect 60 F days now sure make for a better mood at least. Now if I could only afford to play Hookey from work I'd be more relaxed.

I hate forced blogvacas like what happened last week. Missed you all, n I'm still here -

Please forgive the unexpected lapse in posting to ESR last week.

 Altho I had a post ready, our library was closed all week. I didn't find out until I got there on Thursday. How inconvenient... n walking in the prevalent rain home too...

4 Cynthia

I had a big head-ache for hours after taking this pic, tho I think it came out well. I had to pick out just a few from over 30 altered versions I like from my files. Except for time, there's no limit to the different stuff to do with these.

Image by SnaggleTooth spring 2016



The un-altered color n texture pics with the chain link fence came out nifty too. Think I like these better than normal flower shots I've taken.

Image by SnaggleTooth spring 2016

I'm very allergic to this pungent pollen, tho I do like seeing the pretty color all over each spring. Tree pollen would normally be more painful this week of plant springing, but the constant rain has knocked it down. Perfect for movies n reading.

Watching "Looper" and "Thor: the Dark World" this week. Been keeping tabs on the week-old kitten in the drawer too. Getting larger n a bit whiny.  

Image by SnaggleTooth spring 2016

A day of missed sleep this past  week-end has me knocked down n more tired. I'm gearing up for having to work on Mother's Day. Someday I'd like My Holidays-Off option back. I'm waiting a couple weeks for a supervisors vacation to be over for a couple more owed vaca days. I wish they'd just let me get what n when I ask for, but times are tough for employees here these days. Almost like work owns you...

There's a woman named Cynthia who used to work with me there, who occasionally stops in with her bright n cheery two-year-old Daughter. They came in the other day. Seeing them is like a ray of sunlight in a dungeon for me. Like these bright spring flowers chasing out the drab winter scene.

Image by SnaggleTooth spring 2016

I hope some rays of sunshine find you this week-end.
