It was JUST here a second ago. I promise! And I think it took the first half of June with it…
Garden update: using cardboard boxes was a complete bust. I transplanted the sugarsnaps that I’d planted, but they didn’t like the move. I got five whole pods off three plants. I didn’t like the rocket and pulled it out. My box of salad greens is still going strong though, and the cucumbers that *did* come up (two out of six) are loving their space in the bucket and covered over in blossoms. And?
I finally got the blueberry bushes in the ground. Yay!
We’ve been invaded by fleas. I’ve decided today that the little dogs need to be housebound – I combed all the fleas off Rocky (chihuahua), let him go outside for a wee break and he was COVERED when he came back in. I’ve also ripped the carpet out of my room and will be attacking the dining room carpet next week. I’ve sprinkled DE all over the place (including the dogs) and I’ve been vacuuming like crazy.
I hate to vacuum. But I hate fleas more.
The umbrella clothesline that I bought last year has FINALLY been planted in concrete and is fully functional. I wish I could describe the sense of accomplishment that came with getting it done. And the sense of relief that comes with knowing I’ll be cutting my power bill by a decent chunk…is indescribable.
My todo list is finally down to a few major/minor projects: flooring and painting the dining room, flooring and painting my bedroom, painting the livingroom, and getting the windows replaced.
And that’s most of the news that’s fit to print for right now.
