On Wednesday, Oct. 5th Bill was up and gone to work by 7:30. He wakes up feeling better every day and we both admitted to having a good nights’ sleep. I also woke up feeling good, dried up after going to bed feeling a bit ‘sniffly’. That’s good, we’re kicking this cold’s butt! 😉
I knew M was painting THE truck today and would not need me so since it was going to be a beautiful day, I planned to work outside. After cereal and my cup of tea, Gibbs and I went out to the gardens. ‘We’ started putting all my garden ornaments away and then I ended up cutting back the plants that get that kind of attention. Hostas, lilies and irises.
Up on the berm, I picked up 3 full pails of the apples that fell off that little tree and tossed them over the fence. I can’t believe there were so many! I also risked my life (haha!) on the corral hill and transplanted evening primrose, spreading it around in the garden more, and dug holes for some irises. I have a few more bulbs to plant in the next couple of weeks, hostas and irises.
|the Bunky is looking pretty bare now|
With all of that done, there is only the vegetable garden to clean up, one large hosta and one black eyed Susan plant to trim. We sat outside together for a while and then came inside together so I could have my shower. Gibbs started barking when I was in the bathroom and that always freaks me out when I’m not able to see who it is. Turns out, Bill got home early, by 3 o’clock. 😉 That’s always nice!
|Too bad, my eggplant didn't survive the frost|
They weren't doing very good anyway.
I'll try again next year
|sitting with Gibbs, I noticed the tree on North LIne|
that I like, is in full Autumn glory from our step
I felt very tired after 4 ½ hours outside and kept dropping off in my chair before supper. At 6, I baked a couple of pork kabobs with fried potatoes and vegetables. They were good and while we finished up, Marilynne called to chat before she left on her cruise on Friday. I’m sure she is very excited. We cleaned up after dishes and watched Wheel of fortune and Jeopardy while I worked on my blog.
|The garden on the berm is done|
with the exception of trimming the Peony bush
The rest of the evening was catching up on Monday night’s recorded programs on our PVR. This was a good day, and I accomplished a lot. I’ll be sore in the morning (maybe) so will do some stretches when I get up to bed. My sister would be proud!
This garden is done as well Except this hosta You may not be able to see them but the evening primrose
have been spread around the garden a little better
Hopefully come spring, it will look better
Supper was good!
Thank you for stopping by on this beautiful 21C/70F day!
