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);
"Hail the Victorious Dead!"
... for all death is not in vain
