Had a "Get Things Done Day"...

After doing a load of laundry, we set out around 10:30 to go get our plants.  It's very exciting to go and see all the plants.  I want them all!  And a gardener to come with! lol 

George, since he has been home, has had time to clear out the garden bed in the back and said he may plant some this year.  He got some tomatoes and a lot of herbs to plant.  I think he bought some cucumbers.  

I didn't know what Stevia looked like.  Now I do.  I guess it IS natural, lol. 

Here was our take.  I got the vincas for the front mail box and the planters by the front sidewalk.  that is all I really want to plant this year. 

At this place there is always an old dog laying around somewhere!  Reminds me of Hee Haw, lol.

 Here's the spread but there's a lot more to the right and the left.  But this is the section we shop in.  It's Needham's Nursery.  And the folks are very nice that run it.  I see their name in lots of community things so they give and support the community quite a bit. 

After the plant place we went to Kroger and bought a buggy full of food packed high and low!  lol We were out of a lot.  I bought stuff for the Bible study Wed night.  I decided to have chicken taco salad.  I'll chop and marinate the chicken Tues night.  I'm going to make the cilantro dressing along with it.  We'll be adding black beans and corn.  It's similar to the power bowls I made last week only instead of quinoa we'll have lettuce and tortilla chips.  I am going to make lemon cucumber water as well, for our Bible Study.  Katy and I call it detox water.  lol

The day was a joyous day for me to have some time at home with just me and the dogs and no where to have to be.  George and Katy left about 3 to go to a Preds Watch game downtown.  A big screen was set up on lower broad - it looked like it was in the middle of the road.  lol  I was so happy not to have to go!  

I was able to get the planting done.  I figured to go ahead and plop them in place while the weather was good and not too hot.  

Was able to come in and do a few more loads of laundry, cook turkey spaghetti, with whole grain noodles.  I made several lunches with the leftovers.  

And I did two more days of Bible Study.  One day of it was done in the sun room with screens open and light cool breeze coming thru.  It was a bit hot in the house with the thermostat set to 77 for the a/c comes on.  So that breeze felt good.  

And then I was able to watch a couple of Keep Your Daydream shows.  They have 100,000 subscribers now.  So happy for them.  They will be going to Alaska this summer - so looking forward to that!  Every week a new episode uploaded at 6 p.m. ish.  You can watch them on YouTube and visit their website at 

Our crew got home around 10 or 10:30 I think - the Preds had double overtime.  I finally had to go to bed.  And so I missed some of my best sleep - which is b/w 9:30 and 1:00.  So it was hard to get up this morning.  The alarm went off and I was comfy and snoozing and the room was quite cool.  I did not want to emerge from my cocoon.  Now I'm hurrying and running late.  

Anyway, off the land of busy!  My friend's visitation is this afternoon and tonight but it's also tomorrow before the funeral.  I have weighed back and forth on whether to go to both or just one.  I feel called to go to the funeral.  And I believe I have decided to just go tomorrow to visitation and funeral.  I wouldn't want to miss the funeral for sure - so that is a no brainer.  I'm having to cancel a work meeting though but it can wait.  I imagine there will be several of us going.  

Katy and I have plans this evening as well.  So all will work out I think.

More tomorrow!  



  1. Sounds like a great Sunday and you got a lot done. Makes the week go smother I think when things are in place at home. That garden center is huge! No planting here yet. I'll wait till around the middle of May.

  2. A garden does help out a lot on the grocery bill. Fresh produce is really expensive in the store. I love the white cucumbers best and fresh green beans with spring onion. It will be nice for your husband to be out in the fresh air and sunshine and work on a garden even if it is a small one. Your bible study sounds nice. I know everyone looks forward to it.

  3. sounds like a great day. the flowers are lovely. and that old dog looks sweet.
