By that title you would think, boy, you have been really busy! Well, yes and no. Our air conditioner went out two and a half weeks ago. My daughter's last year, and ours this year. Can you see the gray hair that have sprung up overnight?!!!
Fortunately the weather was not too bad, and I would spend most of my time outside working in the garden (which in my case why bother as the weeds/grass have really taken over). I've been a real trooper though! Weeding, planting, etc.. You would think that with all of that I have been getting enough exercise! I have been trying to whittle the "old" waistline down with a exercise cd. Denise Austin is really great, and I wish she would be back on tv as that really makes you exercise, no excuses!! Anyway, I decided I would hop on my old stair stepper (and I do mean old) for a short time. It went great, or so I thought!! Went to the store shopping with my daughter, bent down and could barely get back up! Oh oh! From there it went downhill!! Just trying to sit, oh boy! that was a joke!! So I headed off to the massage lady who said I had just done too much. My body was ok with gardening, weeding, digging, but it did not like the machine so it protested big time! Sigh, I'm getting old....!!! As she put it she knows that for me to tell myself to take a break would be hard to do so she was telling me to take a break!!!
Do you know how hard it is just to do nothing with all the plants crying for my attention?!!
These are just some of the ones that I had bought. My local place had geraniums three 18 packs for $15! Then I went back and they had marked it down to 3-18pk for $10!! Woohoo! I love geraniums as they last all summer long so I could not turn them down. The only thing is that they only had certain colors which seemed to be the case everywhere I went, and nobody had the wax leaf geraniums. Of course hubby looks at me like where in the world are you going to put all of these?!! Course some of them I'll share, some I'll put into the ground which will be a first for me as we have the red clay dirt here, but hey, if they survive I'll be a happy camper.
At least something will be growing! I don't know if it was our crazy spring or what yet it seems the veggie garden is just not doing too much; except for the weeds/grass. If you want grass in a certain spot just try and grow something!
I have forced myself to rest which has been hard. We were wanting to go to Savannah to get some shrimp, and a little break over the weekend. I decided against it which was probably a good thing. I guess I just needed the rest. It would have been nice to be able to sit on this chair and visit, but that crazy nerve just would not let me. I did a lot of walking around, and had to take this photo to show you this rose bush in the backyard.
Look how it made this beautiful cluster! To me it looks like a bridal bouquet!
This rose came about from my grandmother. She was cutting hers back; throwing the trimmings down the hill so I grabbed one. When I got home I just stuck it in the dirt! Never thought it would grow, but it does with wonderful blooms till fall, and yes it does have a wonderful fragrance!
Now for someone who hasn't been on lately I hope I haven't bored you to death! I've been a little chatter box here!!! Guess I better get busy with something else....like buying some groceries!!
Oh, and by the way we have air!! Got it this past Friday all hooked up and running great! Hubby did a terrific job, and it's a good thing since we are having temps in the high 90's to close to 100!!
