I went "elderly" grocery shopping early yesterday morning, and picked up all that we should need for the next week or so. Should have gotten more than one four-pack of blueberry muffins, because they seem to be Vivi's favorite. Maybe next week. I'm always pretty happy to have beverages stocked...Starbucks K-cups, Coke Zero, and tea. I've accumulated so many kinds of teas this past year...so many that we probably won't need to order/buy any for the next few years.
After the grocery, on the way home I was driving past Lowe's. It was early, and no one was there in the garden center except for the cashier. I got an herb planter filled with rosemary, oregano, and thyme. In addition, I picked up a nice tomato plant and a few packages of seeds. Early tomorrow morning, I hope to make it out to Rural King (just 2 miles away) and pick up a 6' x 2" x 1" galvanized planter (water trough) to place out on the deck. It's time to start the garden...and even though there is plenty of space to dig out a garden in the back yard, it's just too much work...and it's too far away from a water source. I do not want to be carrying buckets of water down the hill. Lazy? For sure.It will be nice to have our little trough of crops right outside the sliding doors. Easy to take care of, and nice to look at.
The Flora Kahlo rose bushes I planted two years ago are finally starting to sprout some leaves. I swear, they've looked like dead sticks for the past year. I was considering pulling them out, but I'm so glad that I didn't.
One full week of my library science class is out of the way. Seven more to go. Considering the amount of projects and papers that are required, I'm kind of glad I'm not working. SO GLAD this is my last class for certification!
