Weeds: There’s an APP for That

August 8, 2011

After hitting END, wait about an hour.  A vehicle appears in your driveway.  Late the next day, all the weeds are gone.  It’s a miracle.  There was one little problem.  Sweetums programmed it to remove the ferns.  I didn’t discover it until it was too late.  What do I do?  Is there an app for butt boils? 

It even weeded around the volunteer Impatiens.


And whatever these are.






I still have to chop at some bushes.  They’re blocking my view of the water.  I attacked them three or four years ago.  Sweetums almost had a heart attack.  Well, they grew back.  And I’m going to do it again.

Summer is Over

August 29, 2009

We got married at the end of summer.  Today is our anniversary.  Therefore, summer is over.  I didn’t even realize what day is was until I went to date a photo.  I asked Doug if he knew what happened today and he didn’t.  No surprise there.  He’s always been clueless.  So I told him.  He said, “Happy Anniversary”.  I said it back.  And that’s the extent of our celebration.  We are not exactly romantic types.  We did go to Tapatia’s for supper, but that’s because it is Friday.  We didn’t tell our friends. 

It’s raining again.  None of my sun loving flowers did well this year.  However, the impatiens went crazy.  Every year I have some come up on there own.  This year they were in areas where they had ever been before.  This includes the wooded area on the roadside.

Gus wants to play with the little girls so very much.  He stares when the Bee Jesus out of them when he jumps at them.  He doesn’t realize that he is ten times as big as them.

It was 85 Today

April 20, 2008

We had a nice walk this morning. I was tired when we got back, but I didn’t ache everywhere as when I am cold. I sat out back for a while and knit. I finally finished the garter stitch cuff and sewed the ends together. It slid over my heel and fit nicely. I was going to take a picture on my foot, but I didn’t want to scare anyone.

Here’s the seam.

The yarn was really thin here, but I think that it will be all right. I knit for about an hour and then planted impatiens. I still have about a dozen plants left. I am hoping to finish them before the rain starts tomorrow.
