Friday? Yeah, yesterday was Friday.

Category: Random bulletins from my brain | Posted: Sat Mar 10, 2007 2:58 pm

I woke up yesterday thinking it was Saturday, Randy is off every other Friday therefore I spend that entire day reminding myself it is Friday and not Saturday. I like loosing track of the days.

Amanda's new boss called Thursday and asked her to start a day earlier than planned. She was tired when we picked her up but I think she had a good time. As a newcomer she was on the cash register where she had to actually talk to people and smile. She hibernates in her room a lot and not used to smiling so much so even her face was tired by the end of her shift.

Randy and I had errands to do. Went to Home Depot for mulch and two rolls of that weed barrier cloth stuff for the future Lantana bed.
Potting soil for the old recycle bins to plant the mint in that I bought a few days ago.
Some 2x4's for sawhorse legs so I can set up a work table outside and get some things sealed before putting them outside and some shutters painted for my room.
Two 4ft square pieces of MDF board, one for a project of his and one to eventually become a table top for the patio table frame we found years ago when doing some curbside shopping. He is going to round it off and I'll paint something on it.

And a plant. Can you believe I wandered thru the gardening section drooling over some beauties and only bought one plant. I would have bought more but you see, Randy was with me and I do my best plant shopping alone, when I can really take my time then come home and put them out back before Randy sees just how many I bought. I bought a Nandina...I know some landscapers call them vile but this one suits my purpose perfectly. I have a section of chain link fence that needs a shade plant as a privacy screen.

Out to the backyard for me now, seedlings to water and plants to plant.

Sounds like you had a great day, Toni. Too bad about the nandina. I am one of those aforementioned landscapers.

I'm glad you had such a great day.I am wondering how you only found just one plant anyway.That had to be very hard on you.:)

Yeah, Jan I know, that's why I said it hehehe

Glenda I found the dark purple petunias, those were so hard to resist. But some of mine are coming back from last year so I really don't need more....do I??

Only one plant?!!!!! You're letting the side down Toni. LOL We addicts can't survive long by buying only a single plant. You'll need another fix soon I'm sure.

Hehehe, bought one . . .
earmarked how many for the next visit sans hubby?
*wink, wink, nudge, nudge*

I guess the Nandina thing depends on the part of the country they are in and the way they are used (*or not*).
I have to admit 'tho, there are a few landscapes around here that were brighter throughout the winter months for their evergreen (and pink) foliage and all those scarlet berries.

One plant - I can't believe it. Are the rest on layaway to be picked up later?

Talk about a strong will, I don't know if I could have walked away with just one either.
