I still can't believe how much damage those vines were doing and would have continued to do if we hadn't removed them. Nothing got trimmed or "cleaned" up last year, our lives were kind of turned up side down. So lots of catching up to do this season. We were able to get the vines out and the front fence, then fixed the slats and painted it. I truly had no idea how much damage those things can and did do. George said that they can cause cracks in buildings. Lovely....I guess from here on out, I don't plant things without George being here. Those were planted while he was contracting. Opps.....
So we went to the produce stand and got some goodies This was my lunch and will be for the next couple of days. I will pay for eating the onions, but I can live with it. Then we got some cantalope, strawberries, grapes and bananas to make a fruit salad. It made a pretty good sized one so sent some to the neighbors across the street. They are really nice people and are almost living alone, it seems everyone has moved out and someone else needs help so they let them stay for a month or so.
So I packaged up a couple packs of fruit for George to have in his lunch. I love my food saver, I do believe that is the best gift I have ever received. When there is something like strawberry short cake, just package it up and it travels great. No mess or worrying about it leaking out of a container.
So today is another day of storms and rain, it has rained all night and is still raining. So I will do some laundry, have no choice on the matter, can't wait on the weather, George needs work clothes. Then I think I will go sew. Might just stay in my sweats all day. The power has went off several times, so that means the house is full of flashing red lights. It will not trick me into setting all of those clocks until much later today. Remember having to call the time/temperature to find out the time after the electric had been out? Not anymore....you have a phone and a computer that never leaves you not knowing the time. Now I just have to figure out how to get the dogs to go outside, they will have to take care of their business and neither one of them like to get their feet wet. Couldn't imagine them in the snow.
Don't forget to get those stones and crystals outside tonight to be cleansed and charged! It's a Quickening Moon, time to make plans for the future, a new season.
