School’s out for summer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yay!¬† Finally!¬† I thought it would never come.¬† Well, yesterday was our first day off of school.¬† We spent it going to my doctor’s appointment in the morning.¬† It was the cardiologist — a year’s checkup.¬† The heart was good, but not the weight.¬† I knew the weight would be up but not by that much.¬† It was disheartening.¬† I can hardly exercise with my back, and I’m not eating any worse than what I was before this disk problem.¬† I was on my way to losing weight then, had just lost 25 pounds.¬† Now, I’ve gained it all back and more.¬† And all my doctor can say is just don’t eat.
Anyway,¬† after the doctor’s appointment, we went to Walmart’s to buy some “rabbit” food.¬† I guess I’ll be eating weeds most of the summer.¬† We’ll have to see how that goes.¬†
While we were there, I checked out the plants.¬† Tommy just paid a guy to lay bricks for 2 flower beds in front of the house, so I told him I was going to look and see what was available.¬† Well, one thing lead to another.¬† We found a couple of plants at Walmart’s that we liked.¬† But then we ended up at Home Depot, and bought the dirt and the rest of the plants.¬† 45 bags of dirt, and 50 plants later we have a nice colorful garden.¬†
Here’s a pic:
Lots of color, huh!¬† I told Tommy that if I was going to put the work into a garden and kill plants, I at least wanted the color!¬† And bless Tommy, when my back gave out, he finished off the job for me.¬†
I must admit.¬† I am a plant killer.¬† Don’t ask me how or why.¬† But I kill plants.¬† I do not know how long these plants will live.¬† I do not know when their hour will come, but I will enjoy their beauty while I can.
