Here we are again! It's Friday and here are the top 5 things that amused me this week:
And here are the missing lights, wonder how they got it down the road. All of this gave me a chuckle because it's now like this trailer and its saga is following me!
2. I was in the garden yesterday morning and thought these spectacular flowers needed to be in the spotlight. Sadly,the camera really never does anything the justice it deserves. Pretend you are super awed:I've let the morning glories self seed and they are a little out of control this year, taking over things. But they are pretty.The combination of colors is pretty amazing but isn't really showing up here. It makes me laugh that these zinnias are so great because they were a free packet of seeds that I got from the bank and they all actually grew and are pretty! And they are about 4 feet tall!The rose of sharon is a bush someone gave me from her garden two years ago and I thought it had croaked at first. Now it's more than made up for its lack of action in the spring. Mixed in with it are milkweed that I've let do their own thing, morning glories and a magenta hollyhock. I hoped that the morning glories would hold up the rose of sharon because last year they flopped over. Everything seems to be holding everything up this year. The milkweed are almost taller than me.
3. We went to see comedien Gabriel Iglesias and he was pretty funny. Actually, very funny. The comediens that opened for him weren't so funny. They were OK, but not as great as he is. He can tell a great story.
4. I finally got me letter telling me that I am a team leader for the upcoming school year. Even though I THOUGHT I was going to be, I wasn't getting a response from the principal and wasn't sure if I really needed to reserve next week for the meetings that go with it. The letter finally arrived, so I am all set. And that's a nice bonus in my pocket, as well.
5. I ate the first tomato out of my garden this week. This might be a record, as I don't think my tomatoes are ever ripe when everyone else's are. I have lot of tomatoes and many are starting to ripen. And the corn is coming along nicely. And the beans are putting out a steady amount. The cucumbers are playing games with me. They're dying, they're not, they're dying, they're not. They produce, they don't, they produce, they don't. And the broccoli is making a lovely comeback. I hope to see a lot of broccoli this fall. The chard is also coming along, continually producing like I want it to. Oh and the peppers are finally getting their act together. I think they need more water so I might have to rearrange some of the drip irrigation. But now that the ground cherry plant has been banished, that might be easy to do.
