I am feeling weird today. Feeling at loose ends, I guess. I’m tired but I don’t want to rest. I want to work in the garden but I’m too tired. It’s a beautiful day and I just know I’m not getting anything done. Oh, well. Things will feel better tomorrow.
I’ll get to bed early tonight so I can go to yoga at 9 am tomorrow, then I should be energized for the rest of the day.
I just hate this restless feeling. So…let me see if there are any pictures I can post.
This is my oldest son, Adam and his wife, Sarah. They won’t be coming up this weekend for Mother’s Day, but they will be at the lake over Memorial Weekend, so that’s cool.
My daughter, Ashlee and her husband, Ross, will be here this weekend! We’ll have a dinner here at my house on Sunday and they will go home Monday.
Orion likes to just stand on this stool beside the dog bed. Don’t ask me why. See that sheffalara (damnit, I can’t spell it) next to the stool? I put it outside to freeze and die because it was dropping leaves like crazy, it was buggy and I was sick of it. I took several cuttings to start new plants that won’t be so unwieldy. Schefelara. Blast. Well, I got “unwieldy” right.
Yay! Here he is! Aaron with his pup, Leo. My kids are 28, 26 and 25 now. I can’t believe that, I really can’t.
Aaron will be here for Mother’s Day, too. And my mom and dad and my mother-in-law. I feel really lucky to have them all around. None of us are getting any younger!
Here’s Orion being a lap dog. He wants to sleep on the couch with me so bad that I give in and let his head sleep in my lap.
Good god, I look like a dork. But, I feel it necessary to have a picture taken now and then to prove I did exist.
Isn’t this gay marriage thing a hoot? I have been getting a kick out of goading my overly religious cousin on Facebook. She asserts that God views it as a sin and that’s that. I feel really good knowing that it won’t be all that long and a lot of this horrible bigotry will go away. Now why am I optimistic all of a sudden? That’s not like me. Oh, well, I guess it’s hearing so many cool people posting their opinions on Facebook. And seeing so many idiot people being shouted down. Ha! I’m off to Hell!
Ok…here is the little progress I have made on my garden by the front door. The house is bermed, so the earth slides down and exposes the plywood at the top of the berm. I built it up and moved rocks and ground covers and sedums to cover the sagging garden. It looks good but it seems like it’s taking forever!!!
Before….with sagging garden…
Here is the part I have finished. I love how it looks! I am going to competely remove the wiegelia bush that’s in the middle and have totally low ground covers in there.
Oh Christ on a cracker. Romney is now having to apologize for something he doesn’t remember doing in high school. Is this really necessary?
Ok, all this rambling has helped settle my nerves a bit. Hopefully tomorrow will be a very productive day!
