Yesterday was another one of those days that was so packed with activities that I could barely get out of bed this morning!
My first project- Get the Onion Garden Weeded.
Onion garden, as opposed to vegetable garden, because onions are about as far as I got before my back/hips gave out on me :(
Actually, I did get some oregano in, but in my crazy business, it went to seed already. The slugs got my parsley and my cilantro (a gift from my hairdresser) is still sitting patiently in little pots waiting to go in the ground. My tomato plant looks pathetic. I tried to cheat and buy a big plant and grow it on the back porch which is an inferno in the summer, but apparently it was too hot even for the heat lovin' plant, so I put it in the big garden, and it is looking very sad indeed. Whitey always planted potatoes and I have volunteers, otherwise it's just onions. I got carried away. I planted shallots, Spanish red onions, yellow onions, Walla Walla Sweets, leeks, and a few others that I can't remember. I brought the tags in to research onion care on the Internet and got sidetracked, can't find the tags that I was going to promptly put back in the row so that I would not forget what was what, and guess what??? Nuff said.
My poor pathetic tomatoe plant is the sad one on the right.
On to project #2- Finish painting at mom and dad's (while they are in Corsica, lucky dogs, they owe us BIG!!!)
They, (meaning Mom) wanted the family/TV room painted. Syl and I decided to get creative and do an "accent" wall where the TV sits. We picked out a beautiful blue/green color,
Here is what we ended up with, not dry yet, so I got some glare going on.

Taken with the light off, the glare is from the skylight
So after cleaning up, I drove the one hour drive home, stopped at the store because I decided I wanted a big salad for supper. Somewhere between getting the dogs out of the kennel and unpacking my car, I decided the field needed to be mowed. (???) I was getting delirious, I guess.
It wasn't really that bad, but I must have just needed to relax and just, well, sit!
The evening was warm and beautiful and the clouds had this beautiful pink tinge to them. Like I said, I think I was delirious. I took a picture, but the pink didn't quite show up :(
I love a nicely mowed field. Yes, I'm a geek!
So there it is. One day of my "boring" life in a boring nutshell!
Tune in for more boring news tomorow! ;)
