This week the decorator is in doing some painting in the dining room. Yesterday, he removed some paper, today he's sanding the walls, who knows when the painting will start.
Last week, a work colleague gave me three tomato vines, and yesterday I decided at sweltering 4 pm that would be a good time to repot them, and of course I caught the sun on my face and neck. The courgette plant is taking over the neighbourhood; I decided yesterday to clip off some leaves that looked worse for the wear and I'm hoping it doesn't see that as a good reason to die.
All those pretty winter flowers went the way of all flesh, and now I'll need to get new bedding plants to replace them, but yesterday the hubster and I went clothes shopping (we both looked like Victorian orphans, it was really time to buy something) so it will have to wait until cash reserves are replenished.
Speaking of which, last week we had to buy a new clutch for Old Faithful, and this week we've got the decorator, so even though we have this week off, we haven't been able to travel to Wales as we'd planned. Too broke. However, my recent tarot/oracle sales have generated Paypal money for the buying of board games, so we have been playing those every evening and enjoying them very much. Hope everyone who bought decks from me is loving their new decks.
Here's how the garden looked at 7.00 this morning. (Hubster calls this corner 'Carla's farm'.)
|The newly potted tomato plants. Blue pot: french beans, green pot chili pepper (Apache).|
|Left planter: cayenne pepper and more dwarf french beans. Right: herbs|
|Left: the triffid yellow courgette|
|Carla's farm (that's the neighbour's fence, nothing we can do. Spot of soil is where at 9 pm last night I decided to repot the french beans and apache pepper to make space in the planter)|
