I have done very little today, and don't really feel bad about it. I tried to repot some of my aloe vera which I let grow way too big. I had dirt all over the place when I finished the job. The job still isn't finished actually, because I have another aloe plant that needs to be repotted. I have to find a better place to do it than my kitchen countertop though.
My house is situated perfectly to avoid the worst of the sun, as are most houses in Sacramento. I believe I talked about this in a prior post. Sometimes it's hard to find a perfect spot for a houseplant because of this placement.
Speaking of houseplants, I'm running over with coleus, which is one of the most beautiful plants I have. I bought two of them in very large pots which I placed on either side of the front door. The afternoon sun was brutal to them, so I've brought them indoors. I've also taken off some of the growth and started them in other pots. I may never get the dirt from under my fingernails, and I have coleus in just about every room of the house!
I just had the nicest nap. Instead of falling asleep in a chair or on the sofa, I came in and took my nap on my bed. Rocky follows me everywhere, and he is still sleeping over on his side of the bed!
After a great supper of - you guessed it - zucchini stir fry, I'm still not tired of it. This time it was a little mushroom-heavy, because I decided to use the rest of the mushrooms from the box I bought. They are still good and fresh, but I know they wouldn't last for long. I have two small zucchini left, but I notice two yellow squash on the plants that I will pick tomorrow. By the end of the harvest I probably won't want to look at a squash for a while!
Is another weekend upon us already? Tomorrow is predicted to be 105 degrees, and Sunday 106! I will be staying indoors as much as possible this weekend. I have a lot of yard work piling up, but it will have to wait.
Have a good weekend, and stay cool!
