I may have overdone it a little yesterday. Matthew worked his 6PM-4AM shift Sunday and had his 2PM-12AM shift Monday - so he had to sleep all day - but it was my day off and I had a 15 ft crab apple tree, bee balm, lemon balm, lavender, and rosemary to plant and 3 other little pines to move and replant. AND I attempted to weed-eat - I am not very good at it but the grass around my garden bed was getting 3 feet tall.
BUT, I probably shouldn't have tried to do it all before 1PM. Sigh. So, here I am stiff and sore on the couch at 5:07 - trying to convince myself to get up and do the rest of the stuff I wanted to get done today - make pretzel salad, do another load of laundry so my hubby can have a clean wrap for his hand tomorrow, go to Lowes and get the mulch we paid for but forgot to put in the car. I have been trying to convince myself to finish it up since about 3:00PM when I took a shower after weed eating so far all I have managed to do in the last two hours is take a nap and park myself in front of the tv with the laptop on my lap. :)
Well, three hours later...I did manage to get up but I didn't finish my whole list. I can't do it all - I shouldn't try to do it all. Sigh.
I DID manage to do another load of laundry, water the trees I planted and replanted, and sew buttons on to hubby's work shirts and repair a hole in my work pants.
I ALSO managed to burn dinner - I was cooking one of those easy-peasy 10 minute lipton noodle things and decided to water the trees outside while it was cooking - ha! Yup, I burned it - so I had ravioli and garlic bread instead.
Having my husband work all the time makes me feel like I am single or something - eating the way I used to when I lived by myself in my studio apartment. Living off ravioli, spaghettios, pop tarts, cereal and fruit.
It is just hard to cook a real dinner for just me - if I do I have more leftovers then I know what to do with - and Matt isn't good about eating leftovers so there's no point.
My Memorial Day in Photos
Here are the three trees I moved from various locations in the backyard to this little nook on the west side of the house - it really looks darling - I just need to add some shade loving/moisture tolerant flowers now!
And here is our new flowering crab apple tree. It was 50% off at Lowes - it had blown over in the recent storms and was coming out if its pot - there were two others that I almost bought but we could barely managed to fit this one in our PT Cruiser the way it was. :)
And here is my new little herb garden. It isn't where I imagined it would be - but I think it will be better on this side of the house where it can catch the morning sunlight and where it is a little less soggy. It just needs some mulch and a little border of bricks!
And finally - my feeble attempt at weed eating that resulted in a few plant massacres like the one above. :(
