Didn't get finished today!
I didn't get finished today. I wanted to get the glads planted today. Didn't get it done. I started to spread the manure/compost blend but thought I would water it after. So, I went and hooked up the hose and turned it on and went back to the side yard. Then, I decided while I had the hose I would water the daffodils and the hosta and ended up watering everything in the front and then watered the roses and the trees and then I went into the backyard and uncovered the spinach and gave it some water and watered what I have planted in the garden and watered the butterfly bush. I had to come in and have a snack and some tea by then. Dan came and we went over the scanner stuff and he showed me shortcuts and how things work. I did some other computer stuff. We went to the post office. Then, I finally had to rake the side yard before I could put the manure blend down. I cut off the dead parts of the mums. They are coming up from the ground again now. I raked up two piles of old leaves from the apricot trees. Still need to bag them or something. I did finally get the manure blend spread out and found the rake and raked it and spread it around. Only found two centipedes. Dark gray ones about two or three inches long. They are no more. Did in an earwig too. I lifted two flower pots that were sitting there all winter and they were under them. They were cold or I'd have had a harder time stomping on them. I'm glad I moved the pot though because a tulip was coming up under one of them. It is all yellow. I hope being in the light will help it bloom. I don't know how it was growing under that pot. There was no place for it to go. I had to quit and go shower and get ready for work. We had a couple of errands to run before work. We stopped at In and Out and had a cheeseburger and fries and since it's right next to WalMart we went to see what plants they have. No flowers yet. But they had a rack with herbs and BIG tomato plants. They were $4.82 each. Where do they get the odd prices? Most places would charge $4.99.
We filled our water bottles and then it was time for work. It wasn't busy tonight but we practically had to toss one guy out when it was closing time. He just wouldn't leave. He kept saying he had two more minutes. But, we don't get paid past nine and we still had computers to shut down. We can't do that until the doors are locked. One lady said she wanted to ask him where he worked so she could go hang around while he was trying to go home. Marge finally shut the lights off so he couldn't see to read the book and had to check it out. This is spring break so we didn't have all the kids doing homework. dr said they were hanging around outside with their skateboards. They were riding them down the handicapp ramp from third floor to ground level. Making a pest of themselves. dr stood and stared at them until they left but they just went around the other side of the building. The city doesn't think we need security at night. The building is closed except the library and usually it's just four or five women there. We all leave together at night. dr stays while I work and reads or writes. About ten minutes before closing he goes down and checks out the parking area and waits for us to come out. Only one time was there someone there that he didn't think should be there. He just stared at the guy until he got nervous and left. dr is good at staring people down. He has a sense of humor, too. One night a guy pulled up in his car and said, "May I ask why you are hanging around here?" dr told him,"yes." The guy sat there and waited and finally said, "You aren't going to answer me are you?" dr told him, "You didn't ask yet. You only ask if you could." The guy said something derogatory and sped away squealing his brakes.
There was a man in on Saturday that had the same sort of sense of humor. He came in and wanted to know if he was still on file because he hadn't used his card for awhile. The girl on the desk said she could look it up. She asked, "Do you have a driver's license?"
The guy said, "yes" and just stood there. Finally, the girl asked, "May I see it?" He said, "Yes" and took it out and gave it to her. dr would have done that same thing. My boys, too. They used to drive me batty doing things like that.
We added an answering machine to our phone to screen calls because they were calling from work wanting me to come in early or work extra time and I really didn't want too do it. Anyway the boys have been calling and when the answering machine comes on they hang up. I called them and said if they would just say their name before they hang up I would call them back. I told one of them when I call their house and get their machine I always say, "This is your mom."
He said, "Well, he wasn't much into saying This is your mom when he got an answering machine. Smarty pants! I need to go and put Chance to bed and make my cherry juice. Dooley

Dooley, it's only 8 am and I am ready for a nap after reading all you did yesterday. I sit at the keyboard. And still get tired.
You tired me out too Dooley - at least for me it's evening and closer to bedtime.
You mean after all of that you are going to make cherry juice. You amaze me.
