Today is forecast to be really hot with air quality warnings. We haven't had a really hot day here since last August. I took a nap, got up to do some things in the early morning, now I'll close-up the house, turn the fans on, n sleep thru most of it. Maybe I'll go toe-dipping later...
A surprise package was received recently containing a reconditioned desktop computer. I'll have to spend some time cleaning out the computer zone for space here, n the floor wire-power area is full of dust-bunnies again. I'm not sure what the specs are until I can get it set-up, but it should keep me busy awhile, plus has a dvd player-yay!
Recently I commented at Tabors blog about how what sprouts from my container garden out on the deck always surprizes me. This year I got a beautiful Viola going strong, n several Shasta Daisiy surprizes- one in the middle of beets, from seeds planted years ago that had never sprouted. Some of the old container soil gets recycled n replenished with new components in the spring when preparing for the new planting.

Today I had time to go thru the old (huge) seed packet pile. I found out the years I'd planted them were 1996 n 1997, 16 n 15 years ago- that's amazing! Why they decided to grow now, a complete mystery...
