Today has been a warm and windy day. I checked on the seedlings and watered them before I left for the office. I had a fairly productive day at work. I gave my supervisor an update on my work projects and told her when I have my next medical appointments so she knows. So far, I've 3 scheduled in May, 1 in June, and 2 in July, plus I am supposed to report for jury duty in June, as well.
I checked another garden center's website, today, and they have the tomato cages for a more reasonable price of $1.98 each. They are shorter than the others I looked at yesterday, but that doesn't matter. I am really not looking to give support to the plants; I just want to protect the seedlings until they are somewhat grown, so the cats don't dig them out, or "fertilize" them, or sleep on top of them! I wouldn't want them to squash my squash plants! LOL.
I also looked at vegetable plants being grown in hanging planters. If nothing else, I can get some hanging planters and grow my squash in them, off the ground and away from the cats! I also loved looking at all the creative containers people have come up with for growing plants, such as plastic soda bottles!
Speaking of being creative, I made a thank you card, today:
|Thank You Card|
The thick white paper with the torn edges is handmade paper I made one year with old utility bills I shredded! I added some rosemary leaves to it when I was making it, but they are not too visible. The flowers are metallic sequins.
Today, I raided daughter's closet and borrowed one of her blouses to wear to the office! I needed a black blouse and my only solid black top was too big and droopy. Her blouse fitted me perfectly! I took a picture of myself and sent it to her, with the caption, "Borrowed plumes". She laughed and said to help myself! She left half her clothes down here, so I will be borrowing more from her closet in the future!
Today, I am grateful for:
- Being able to borrow from daughter's closet!
- A pleasant day at the office
- A safe commute to the office and back
- A drive through the park on the way to the office and back
- A sunny and warm day
I didn't do anything that was on my To Do list for today, other than going to the office and daily tasks such as the dishes. I will just carry today's To Do list forward and work on it tomorrow and Friday.
How was your Wednesday? What have you planned for Thursday?
