Ramblings of a Sleep Deprived Mind

Category: Family and Everyday Life | Posted: Tue Apr 10, 2007 1:16 am

I have worked the last 7 days, over the Easter weekend. I haven't been sleeping well and this morning I was up at 3:30 am to tell DD goodbye before she left for New York. I couldn't go back to sleep so I have been up since. I now have 2 days off and there's so much to do I don't know where to start. So here on the Stew seemed like a good place.
When I was leaving work the garden center assistant manager was at the trash compactor. She was throwing away carts of Easter lilies, the big white trumpet ones. I was sick at heart. I went to my locker and on the way back they had several more carts full with a pretty pink lily. I don't know why they can't mark them down and try to sell them. They were going out of bloom but gardeners would have bought them to put in the yard. They let so many plants die bc of lack of water and over ordering.
After I put Mom to bed I stayed out for a while. I got my pole driven into the ground for my sedum/succulent fan grate planter. I have to wrap the pipe so the cross piece will fit a little tighter. Then I will lash the grate on it with zip strips. The cross piece sticks out a little further than the grate, so I guess that means I will have to come up with some sort of garden junk to hang from them so they won't look out of place. DD has the camera with her so I will have to tease y'all till she gets back to take pics. I hope it doesn't look totally ridiculous. We'll see.
Sarah is at a friend's house and without the kids it is so quiet here. I'm not to used to this. They are usually arguing about one thing or the other. Of course we have the dogs and cats to keep us company. Richard just fed the dogs and has them out for the last time tonight. Then he can finally relax. After the drive to New Orleans and back he is tired. And he has to go to Baton Rouge in the morning.
Tomorrow I plan on finishing up the planter and planting up some containers for Mom. I also have a small bed to finish up and plant. A lot of that depends on the weather. We have rain in the forcast. If it does rain then I will do much needed housework.
I'd better quit my insane ramblings before I bore everyone to tears. I think I will check out the forums.

I wonder why WalMats wont mark those plants down.Its such a waste to see them thrown away.I would love to have them in my yard.
I can't wait to see pictures of the sediums in the grate.

I went to their dumpster back in late summer of 03 and saved about 200.00 worth of geraniums they'd pitched,and a few other things in the big round plastic clay colored pots.But that was in small town usa,and no one stoped me!..i dont like walmarts policy either of not marking them down!

Good grief, those big-box stores are wasteful, hmph! Makes the demands on homeowners around here seem rediculous- we were all just "given" (we have to pay for them, really) these huge recycling cans, that we will be charged (again) for the collection of every 2 weeks. So I scrape lables to save a little aluminum, while WallyWorld is throwing out perfectly good plants. Strange country some times...

I hate to see any plant thrown away, especially anything really beautiful. Weeds are an exception of course.

Don't they ever offer any of those plants they're dumping free to staff members Sharon. I would have been near to tears watching all those lilies been scrapped.
I hope you manage to catch up on some sleep.

No they don't Eileen, we would get fired if caught "saving" them.
I did get some good sleep last night. I have another day off, then go back for 2 days and have the weekend off.
