Finally, I am able to log on to my computer. I spent the AM doing other stuff. The fish I had planned to cook for lunch was frozen hard, so I sent David to the store to buy some frozen soup for our lunch. I am making a pot of veggie soup for our evening meal.
The cute little clothes drying rack I ordered did not arrive. In its place came a huge box of plastic parts and a set of instructions. I called Solutions and arranged for a pickup and return. David cannot assemble things like that without having a conniption, and we don’t need a hissy fit today.
We were worn out last night from arguing about whether or not he locked the front door. He does have hearing issues, and he is forgetful, but as he finished our tax return on Monday, I must assume he has some mental ability. Or not. If I disappear suddenly, you can suspect the IRS got us.
Yesterday, with the plumber destroying our laundry room and the constant barking of dogs and parrots for 5 hours, we were a bit frazzled. We don’t handle noisy disruptions well.
At the end of the day, I finally made it into my garden…a quiet and calming place. Well mostly. Things have been growing so quickly the garden has lost its early spring charm and is quickly turning into a jungle. It’s partly my fault. I have never met a plant I didn’t like. As a result, I have stuffed more vegetation into a small space than is probably warranted.
In my defense I will say that some things have volunteered and spread, and some have come up to early (when did you ever see iris blossoms forming before the daffodils have faded? And tulips and daffodils blooming together?) The warm April weather has led to an uprising with June perennials thinking their season has arrived.
