Two nice days in a row and I need many more to finish all the outside cleanup. Doesn’t a 60 degree day just yell out – summer is coming! But there’s so much that needs to happen first!
First there’s Easter – we will have choir practice Weds. nite and a service on Maundy Thursday followed by the Cross Walk on Friday, Sonrise Service early Easter morning, breakfast and our morning worship.
And then there’s the Easter bunny named Harvey. Here’s Harvey from Brenda who said she bought the kit at our shop – I really love the shades of gray and I do not remember this kit!
And from Jeanie
And twin Harveys from Diane.
I did not have a good day yesterday. I stepped outside in the morning to see that my Chewy order had arrived. I had not heard Fed Ex nor did they knock on my door and usually the driver calls ahead so I can open the gate.
Yes, it was a huge order but since my driver always brings it to my garage, I was not concerned. This time, 4 heavy boxes that totaled 202 lbs. were left right against my gate on the outside. This gate swings OUT! I couldn’t begin to move 202 lbs. from inside the gate! What in the world was he thinking? I got my wagon, opened the power gate and opened the boxes where they sat. I loaded my wagon and went back through the power gate 4 times.
I know what you’re saying right now – but it was free shipping, right? Yes, it was free shipping but if I had gone to Target I would have had a cart to roll the stuff to my van and when I got home, I would have driven right in the garage. I quit ordering pet supplies from Amazon because they ship everything through the post office and those boxes end up sitting in my driveway outside the fence by the mailbox. Once again I have to cart it into the house and garage. So I think for the average pet owner either Chewy or Amazon are probably fine. For me, however, it’s just a hassle. And it’s a hassle that’s even worse than going to Walmart!
Yesterday I picked up sticks for hours and when Rick got home he helped me uncover the hydrangeas. Last fall when I cut them down I left the stalks on top of the plants – much to the dismay of several readers but I was willing to try it. As he pulled the stalks and the leaves off the plants many had buds on them.
As I loaded up the debris to haul away I started laying aside those stalks that had tiny green buds. I think if I plant them they might grow!
I laid aside quite a few and planted 6 of them in a pot as an experiment. Those I didn’t plant I put in a corner and covered them up with leaves again so they wouldn’t dry out before I got a chance to plant them. I still have about 1/4th of the row to clean off. I hauled many loads like this.
And I’m really tired tonight – I almost hope it rains tomorrow so I can do something else.
