Just another installment of the random thoughts rolling around in my head today…
Let’s try this again – I had a post completed last week and then lost it somehow. I’m out of practice from not writing for so long. I’m trying to become more regular with my posting but it’s not always easy.
I have become such a scatterbrain lately. Twice this month I missed an appointment – the first time I did not have it in my calendar or tickler file. Today it was in both places but I still managed to miss it. UGH!
Feeling very frustrated with the girl. She is so close to turning eighteen and thinks that she should have total control of her life. We however feel that as long as she lives at home, she needs to follow our rules. There is a lot of tension and it doesn’t look like it is going away anytime soon. She was going to move in with a friend’s family until she discovered that they had similar rules and it would be quite as free and easy as she thought. Now she wants to rent a room somewhere but really doesn’t have the money for that. Not sure what is going to happen with her.
In my last, lost in the ether post, I wrote about some gardening work I did. I have a bunch of irises and they needed to be divided and replanted. I dug up a bunch, cleaned them off, divided them, cut them back and let them sit for a bit before planting. I could/should have tried to find someone to take some of them because there were quite a lot but I didn’t. After planting a bunch of them, I got tired and ended up throwing the rest of them over the hillside. I know that will cause many gardeners to shudder in horror, but I just couldn’t handle the thoughts of trying to do anything else with them.
There was quite a bit of sunshine today and I went out and pulled three wheelbarrow loads of thistles. I keep pulling them out but they keep coming back again and again and again. Also pulled out the four clocks that got killed by the frost we had recently. Trying to clean up the dead leaves and get things ready for winter. Didn’t have much luck with the veggies this year. Need to think of something to keep the deer away.
Hope you had some sunshine and a chance to enjoy it today, until next time – have a great day.
