Garden ~ List Making ~ Car Repairs
I am making a new "rainy day" list for this weekend. I plan on getting more deep cleaning done. I have also left my "office" area a mess. It's "messy house" time of year if you grow a garden (for me anyway). I have papers to file, library books to at least look through and return, a table to clear off, and the walnuts are lurking....
My tomatoes look great. Hubby had his doubts. The last time we grew plants from seeds (we used a front room window) the plants didn't grow tall nor produce well. Also, my cats kept eating them.
I have a few lavender sprouts that look iffy. It's my first time growing the seeds for lavender indoors, and they are so delicate right now.
My peppers are up and look good. I didn't plant enough, nor any hot peppers, so that will be on the buy list. If this all works out, I'll invest in a shelving unit (easy to install and tear down) for many trays for this window. I can lock animals out, and so far simply daylight is working out nicely.
I'm trying to get as much of my outdoor work done, but golly the time goes so darn fast.
Now...if I can get someone's vehicle so I can return my books to the library. Daughter's car needs a second new engine. The first one had a bad timing chain (I think that's what Hubby said), so the guy is returning it for another one. The other not-so-good news? The guy we hired may be needing to get a heart surgery. He said he'd call us yesterday, and has not.
It's a new day! Make it amazing!
I just strained last night's tea infusion, so I know I will have one healthy tea to sip today. I'll hope to have hair tonic updates in about 3 more weeks.
