Calgon…. take me away! I think I over did it today… not at the gym, but in the back yard.
This morning I noticed that Libby was wet… hmmm… not good, she’s probably been drinking out of the watergarden again. Then I see it. She’s pulled the plants from the watergarden! My pretty lily that finally bloomed after five years and two watergardens at two different houses is laying around the yard. Yep… she must have been chasing the goldfish and decided that plant was just in the way!
Well… the plants did need cleaning out, so I guess today was as good a day as any to do it. After about two hours I’m finished… stinky from all the gunk that was in the pond filter, but it does look better. I managed to save my lily, and now its in three different pots, so it did need repotting after all.
Oh.. it gets better. Before the lily incident I called the window guys to see when they are going to do the windows. Ummm… tomorrow at 9am. So that meant I needed to move everything thats within three feet of the windows, take down curtains, and the blinds. I’m finished with everything except for G’s room, and there are boxes in there that are just too heavy to move. I still haven’t taken down the blinds, so that will have to be done later… maybe when J gets home we can tackle that project.
And before all that happened…last week I called the gas company to have the gas turned back on at mom’s house so the pipes don’t freeze (low 30’s last week..brrr). Well they said they would be out this morning to turn everything back on and lite all the pilots. They redtaged the hot water heater saying it wasn’t vented correctly (there were two vents, and it only needs one). So I called my uncle (a plumber) and he’s going to go by tomorrow and fix it. Geee…. the darn thing was fine for the past 10 years… if its not one thing its another.
Well… I need to move all the plants from under the windows on the porch. Later taters!
where are those Milkyways…….
