Put a Fork in Me

I’m done. BUT—so is the Home Depot that curiousmay9 and I vis­it­ed. Just ask sam­bear—he’ll tell you we brought home large por­tions of the store.

Or, at least, it feels like it.

We got

  • Asian lilies
  • Lots of pot­ting soil and leaf mulch
  • Two shep­herd’s crook poles for mount­ing birdfeeders
  • A blower/vacuum/mulcher thingie. It should make short work of the dread­ed mag­no­lila droppings
  • A shelf unit for the seed start­ing pots
  • Said pots
  • Lots of plant label sticks
  • Fil­ters for the HVAC sys­tem. You are chang­ing yours month­ly, too, right?
  • Win­dow A/C unit for our bed­room. sam­bear and I like to sleep in an arc­tic zone
  • Straight-razor blades for clean­ing the cook­top (the maid expressed a pref­er­ence for that tool)
  • A knife to hold those blades (because I can’t stand the thought of her try­ing to hold the lit­tle blades and cramp­ing her hand)
  • A new lock for the shed door. The cur­rent one was intend­ed as a fence latch, and it locked shad­owkatt into the shed last week. We learned of this because curiousmay9 looked out the kitchen win­dow, then said, “Is there a rea­son Katie is climb­ing out the shed win­dow?” We were proud of her for being resource­ful instead of doing the damsel in dis­tress thing.

I’m not sure I’ll be able to walk tomor­row, but it was a pro­duc­tive day. I’m real­ly more wor­ried about curiousmay9, as she got all the bare root plants in the ground after we got home.

I’m plan­ning the front and back porch con­tain­er gar­dens now. One gets full sun, the oth­er is always shad­ed. This is way too much fun.
