Cuz it sure ain't sunny out. Wind is good. (Oh how far I will reach to find the silver lining, right?) Throat is sore and was thinking....whiskey or advil? Advil won out but I may go the whiskey route later this evening. We went out for breakfast after church. I am too full. The Hunter said, "Let's just put the roast away." Yay! Anything to get out of cooking!!! But no, we will still have the roast and baked potatoes and sweet corn from The Hunter's cousin's farm. The Hunter froze it last summer and it is sooooo good! I am glad I was able to mow that one nice-and I use the term lightly-day. I also got my flowers. I usually spend about $80 each year. I had planned to get 2 flats of annuals and 3 perennials. I am switching to all perennials but still do some pots here and there for color. I looked outside first. (Home Depot) Saw these awesome black petunias. But they were in a large pot with a few white accent plants. $20 EACH? No way. I went inside knowing full well they wouldn't have any single trays. The same thing happened when they first started selling grape ivy. But as I'm looking around, I became aware that my inner dialogue was - oh, these might be ok and....maybe I will try some of these.... It dawned on me how stupid I was being. So, I went outside and grabbed the last two pots. I am so excited!!!! Yeah, this is me. I get easily excited by the smallest things; A different kind of bird. A hot air balloon. A beautiful cloud formation. Fireworks. Even that time I held the Tarantula. Well,....not excited, but after the fact I was proud that I did it. I'm telling you, it was the softest thing I have ever held. Seriously. As always...thanks for the comments. always appreciate them.
