It’s Wednesday!!! Hump day!!! Hooray! I have a lot on my plate today–lots of errands to do, and a Volunteer Appreciation dinner at the Depot tonight. It’ll be good to see everyone. I missed the lunch last week–wives were invited for a change, but I wasn’t up to it. I had tummy troubles and didn’t feel like getting out, much less eating anything at all.
The blackberry plant that I bought a few weeks ago has never come out of hibernation. I am sooo disappointed. I pulled it out of the ground yesterday and have it in a plastic bag, ready to return to Home Depot. <sigh> I hope they have some new plants — the last couple of times we’ve been there, I’ve checked and they didn’t have any blackberry plants. Someone has been beating me to them!
My Irises are blooming — will have to get out and get a photo of them. The common purple Irises have been blooming for a couple of weeks now, but the larger, more dramatic bulbs bloom about two weeks after the first wave of purple has finished. I would like to have some Daffodils or Narcissus bulbs — maybe I’ll buy some of those when I’m at Home Depot returning my deceased blackberry plant. I need to persuade Robert to build me another planter box!
It’s warmed up a bit and something that I’m violently allergic to is blooming, because my eyes are just giving me fits. Allergy pills and eye drops are the order of the day. This too shall pass.
Be safe, be well, and please be happy. Know that you are loved and no matter what you are going through, you are not alone. Each day is a gift — enjoy it. Robert and I will be going to San Diego tomorrow for a memorial service for my uncle who passed away last month. We’ll be returning home on Saturday. Till then, take care and remember to tell those you love that you love them.
