It's not much, but it's a start. I had 3 tomato plants I've been wanting to set into the ground, and when I found a tiny tomato on one of them I figured I'd better do it soon. Now I have the plants in a small part of the gardening space, and bought some wire "cage" sort of things to put over them, plus stakes to hold them up as they grow. I know it's not much but I feel like I've accomplished a lot. I really need to have the rest of the garden area tilled in order to be able to plant seeds.
Ara drove me to Home Depot and I was stunned to find that I couldn't locate a thing. I don't think it's that they have moved the merchandise around, although they have done some of that, but the quantity on the shelves and in the aisles was just overwhelming to me and i couldn't find anything I was looking for. I definitely would like to get a bird feeder as there are a lot of birds around - many more varieties than I ever saw when I was living in the mobile home park. Of course, there are a lot more trees here. I also hope to attract hummingbirds. There is an Ace Hardware closer to me than Home Depot, so tomorrow I will see what I can find there.
Some photos of the new sofa, with recliners on either side, and I have ordered a reclining chair to match. The other photos are of the back yard. These were taken with my phone and are not the quality of an actual camera, in my opinion. They seem to enlarge slightly when you click on a picture.
For all the work I've been doing I am sad that I don't seem to be progressing at all. There are still boxes to be unloaded, items to discard or to donate, and just a lot more than I ever expected. I should have weeded out more before I packed and moved here, but it all happened so fast I just wasn't able to do it. I'm really noticing a lot more aches and pains also, and I guess it's mostly age taking its toll. How I hate to admit that!
I'm happy to see some cooler weather returning towards the middle of this week - I love it when temps are in the 60's. Weather patterns seem to be so different all over the country, so it's anyone's guess what the summer will be like.
Here's to a great week ahead!
