Busy Start of a New Week
Little did I know when Little Bear went out with me to do some chores - that this was going to become a uncomfortably hot afternoon. Right now it was beautiful and wind whipping making it feel so nice.
After I captured these pictures I pulled out some plants that I treated myself with yesterday. I wanted to get them in the ground as soon as possible. I planted a Tickseed /coreopsis in the center of the bed. When it starts to bloom , its yellow blooms will be so beautiful to me.
Next I moved down to the next bed and pulled out a plant called , bee balm which attracts hummingbirds and butterflies and has a bright red bloom.
The sun is getting high and hotter by the minute so I keep focused to accomplish my goals. I pull out my four begonia bulbs and put them in hanging baskets. Next I move down to one of the raised beds and plant my four blueberries-with wishes for the special little blue fruits on my brain.
It continues to get hotter , but I push on to my last task . DH had asked me to move some little run-a-way raspberries in the garden so he can till the garden. I carried water with me now and dig up 7 little escapees and dig holes and put them on the right hand side of the garden . Go get more water and dig up more escapees on the left side of the garden and plant them in holes I have already dug.
I really wanted to take pruning shears to one plant that thinks it Owns the garden and needs to be taken down to size-but I was too hot and almost in trouble. I head towards the house with sweat pouring from me . I am so tired and weak -so I head to the shower and when the water runs out of hot water I still let the cool water pour down on me. As I drag myself from the shower - I did take my temperature and it was 102- so I knew I had been in danger of heat exhaustion and I was not about to let it turn into a heat stroke. I poured a large glass of tea and sip quietly under a ceiling fan as I start to cool off.
Since DH has been called away - I head to the sewing room. After not being in here for a while I found plenty of messes that Miss Rosie has got into and I clean that up and pull out another project that I had just started! Yea!
xxl - oversized shirt for a friend for Christmas. Time waits for no person and I know it is flying away already. Just think , only 7 months and Christmas will be back again. It amazes me how fast time gets away from us all. :)
Well, my dear friends I am going to stagger off the bed and count my blessings and hope to tackle another day tomorrow.
Nite -Nite! :)
