Just a puddle of water

Category: Random bulletins from my brain | Posted: Tue May 30, 2006 5:19 pm

That's me after feeding the birds and watering the garden. I overslept, couldn't get to sleep last night so I got up and knitted until 3. So sleeping in until 10 was not out of the question, but I did feel guilty about it. Why is that???

Got out to start watering about 11 and since the water restrictions are in effect and it was after 10 I could only water holding the hose or using a bucket and that took a long time out there.

There is a chance of rain tomorrow...hahahahahaha that is such a joke. Several areas around us got rain and hail yesterday afternoon. We heard thunder, the breeze picked up a bit and blew those beautiful dark clouds over us and away.
Rain or not the temp it supposed to cool down into the mid-80's so I will be getting up early and play out back for a while. Randy spread sulfur on the yard yesterday hoping to take care of the bugs that consider me their "meals on wheels" delivery.

I did get the other two ladders I was offered. I need to get the tall one painted and placed out where the Cypress Vines are getting longer and longer and twinning themselves around everything else.

Also got the wooden birds my Dad made painted and will get them on that hard to describe pool equipment stand, put it out back and take some pictures.

The rain tempted us yesterday also! We had a little sprinkle in the morning but that was it!! We had thunder on and off all day, but when we checked the radar it was around but not on us!! I can't wait to see more pictures of what you are doing with the ladder!! You make the cutest lawn ornaments!!

Really glad I got the watering done this morning and had my shower afterwards.
A street construction crew cut the water main down the street and our water has been shut off until maybe around 6 this evening. I did get several jugs, big jars and bowls filled before it stopped.

Oh Toni I hate it when things like that happen. It is difficult to get anything done without water.I hope they get it fixed for you soon!!! I glad you did get some water stored.

LOL that's just how I feel if our water is ever cut off!!!

...."the bugs that consider me their "meals on wheels" delivery." I know just what you mean as I'm covered in midge bites at the moment and am soooooo itchy. Ian was in the garden too and guess how many bites HE got -O!!! Totally unjust!!!

Looking forward to your piccies of the new ladders and the wooden birds.
