I am tired.
First off, I slept like a landed fish last night. Let's just say the bed looked more like a hurricane had hit than someone had slept in it. Bless him, Husband slept just fine. (Grrr...)
But now I know EXACTLY how much time I have until In-Laws arrive. They said the 10th of July. Which means I absolutely, positively have to get this place ready by... Oh, the 6-7th. Because they are frustratingly, excruciatingly, ALWAYS early! Why? Dunno. Guess they like Husband. I get a hello, and then they are either talking to him, or on the phone to make plans with other family members.
Am I sounding bitter? Probably. Did I mention I am tired?
I am getting most of the house cleaned, however. Kitchen? Check. Bathrooms? Well, pretty much check, still need to clean the tub... You know, it weren't the smartest idea to clean a bunch of trash cans in there. (NO, it's not as goofy as it sounds, they stank.) It looks a bit like an estuary at low tide. Eeew... Living room. Uh. I'll get back to you on that one. Let's just say it's getting there. Table. HAHAHAAAHAHHAHAHA!! Yeah. I think I will just douse it with kerosene and light it. It would be easier. Oh, wait, there's some important papers on the table. Guess not. Dam*.
I am tired... *YAWN*...
Watered the garden. As fast as it is drying out NOW, with 70's and 80's, I shudder to think what the later summer holds! Oh, and I finally bought some zucchini seeds. I plant those to make zucchini bread. The one green vegetable besides beans that my husband will eat. If I dose it with enough gunk to make it useless as a vegetable. Husband has been a golden help the last few, tho. He put up a GATE (!!!) for me to go in and out of my garden, and I can even go in and out with a wheel barrow. This is big stuff for me. He also put up the sprinkler. I now can water without lugging a hose. This creates nasty weeds, but I will deal. But there will hopefully be some fresh veggies for In-Laws. (I have my FIRST TOMATO growing, a Cherokee Purple, it's about the size of a grape. I am doing a very tired happy dance. Happy Shuffle?)
As for the flower gardens. I am now able to walk (mostly) comfortably with the ankle. I am now under the 8 ball to get those presentable. At least with the big garden, there's enough flowers that the weeds are really not THAT noticeable. Except to me. *sigh* But, I press on, I should be able to man handle a hoe now, and get the big pieces finished soon.
But first? I am gonna go take a nap. 'Night...
