DR has done it again!

Category: Daily Happenings | Posted: Wed Sep 20, 2006 6:05 pm

Yesterday, I wanted to go to the Dollar Store to add more minutes to the cell phone that I never use. But, I would lose the minutes I had if I didn't add more. It is for emergencies to and from work. DR says I have to start using them for more than that. Anyway, we stopped at the bank. Across the street from the bank is a junque! store that is going out of business. They had piles of boxes stacked out front. DR wanted to stop and see what they had left. Well, now they have a lot less left. He bought all the boxes really cheap and is going through them to cull stuff he can sell at the flea market. Today, we went and she gave him a lot of other stuff. Just gave it to him. Is that a bargain or not? Yesterday we went up to work a little early so he could go to the grocery stores and get the produce boxes they will give away. He especially likes banana boxes because they are heavy duty and stack nicely. He did let me have my choice of things. I picked another small swan. This one is ceramic.
To change the subject a bit, we have had so much rain that I haven't needed to water much and I guess I forgot that I had to water. Now, it's been about 10 days and I watered the pot plants today. A couple of the small plants are in sad shape. According to the weather service the summer rains are over. We will have a warmer than normal winter with less moisture. So, I guess some watering will be in order now. I will not be watering the weeds though. They can just quit growing now. I need to put some plant food on the mums that I planted and DR says I need to feed the little trees before too much longer so they can store something for winter. It shouldn't frost here until mid-November, but I won't say that too loud. It seems lately all I have to do is open my mouth and say maybe it won't rain today and it starts pouring.
Oh, I'd better quit. I have to call the doctor about picking up a paper to take to the laboratory. They stopped my thyroid medication last month and I have to have the levels checked again now. Dooley

Good thing it was there and not near here. We would have a garage full.

I found a great way to get weeds that have turned into trees out of the ground.
Donna has a 28 yo young'n, who came over yesterday and got 'em all. He weeded the rest of the beds and mulched them all. now THAT's the way to garden.
