Done and not done
I've been busy lately. As you know, I started working at the Prescott Library 20 hours per week. I didn't think it would make much of a difference since it is evening hours when I wasn't doing anything at that time anyway. But, I haven't worked for several years and shelving books involves a lot of active work. You are on your feet the whole time. So I had to adjust to it. I neglected things outside and inside to the point I didn't know where to start to get back in order. I did some work with the weedeater and of course overdone it a bit and ended up with sore muscles. Then, we bought those plants and I found I didn't have time to get them planted because of working and doing other things. Then, it rained and rained some more. It seems every day it's been cloudy and gray or raining. I do wish some of the rain would go to places needing as much rain as we needed and still need. I would gladly share some of the weeds with you too. So, I got the mums planted along the flagstone path. I planted them a few inches further away from the path so the tulips will still line the path in the spring. But, it looked a little lopsided because I only had eight plants. DR thought it did to I guess because last night he went and bought eight more. This morning I planted them and now it looks fine. We found plants that had a lot of buds and I hope they will continue to bloom while they are putting down their roots. I couldn't put the wallflower into the ground. The root system was so dry and so rootbound that it was a solid lump. I watered it good and then put it into a larger pot. I will keep it wet until it softens enough to let the roots begin to grow again. I think that will do it.
There are so many things that need to be done that I don't think the list will ever be done. I think I need to spend less time on the computer and try to accomplish it. Some things are done and more things are not done. How did that happen? Dooley

I know what you are talking about .I don't seem to get anything done.Its to hot to go out until late afternoon.
You have always been a busy lady Dooley, your blog entries are testament to that. If you are going to spend less time at the computer how about putting aside one hour for a blog entry. That way you can keep us up to date and have even more stuff to write about when you blog? :) I need my Dooley blog fix at this stage.
Sounds like over here Dooley. I have so many things to do. I just might take the rest of my vacation days, but not till it cools off some. Hope you get more done.
