This weekend was one of the first in what seems like an eternity that we didn’t have somewhere to go or something to do. We just stayed at home and got some things accomplished, despite of the heat wave that has descended upon the Midwest. Holy hell, is it hot out. The humidity is practically unbearable. But I’m not complaining…I’ll take this over the icy, frigid winter that is just around the corner any day.
So, we did old married people with kids kinds of things. I worked in my garden, clawing up the earth around my vegetable beds to aerate it. I guess this is something you’re supposed to do? I don’t know for sure…I’m a novice gardener for sure. I also spread some stuff called “Rabbit Scram” around the perimeter of the garden to keep away the nasty little bunnies that have been noshing on my lettuce and beans. It’s 100% organic so it won’t hurt the little bastards, but it smells disgusting. It’s made from dried blood, garlic, and cloves. Blech. As well as some organic vegetable food stuff so my peppers hopefully stop looking so sad and pathetic and on the brink of death.
My husband and I also cleaned and organized the entire garage. Okay, so it was mostly my husband. I helped for about half an hour before I got really hot and bored and overwhelmed and found other things to do that involved being in air conditioning.
Here’s some pics of the project in progress:
There were grilled hot dogs on the deck,
And lots of slipping,
And some sliding…
