I have a drawer full of small kitchen gadgets that I thought I must have or I could never cook again. Some are still in the package. My daughter asked me what I wanted for 1.my birthday, 2.Christmas, 3 etc. An Oxo Mandoline. Still in the box five years later. Unused. I use the small hand one all the time. I am very suspicious of any home that does not have a "junk" drawer.
Refund????

I hope to get down to a "junk" coffee mug with a couple of rubber bands, a book of matches, a bobby pin, single edged razor blade, and a couple of expired coupons!!!

I just reread my response to you. It sounds like I am telling you to toss a refund.

I do love that dream you have of a "junk coffee mug."

I need to run errands. About 10-12 stops, if I go to every one on my list. I'm not in the mood to shop, so I'm trying to get going. At this rate, I'll have time for only half of my stops before I need to call it quits. A number of the places close by 6. I think my subconscious has a plan...

Here I go. This is it. No stopping me now....

Wow, that's a lot of stops to make, CG. On my busiest of errand days, I might have 5 or so. Got most of everything done yesterday so today is a stay at home day.

I'm taking a break from playing outside all morning. The patio is a mess -flower pots, potting soil, gardening gloves, seedlings to transplant, houseplant clippings that have been rooting in water to plant, etc. ETC. I had to stake my tomato plants, they're already a foot tall and I lost one due to the wind a couple of days ago, so not taking any chances on any more breaking.

Well, another cup of coffee and back to work!

You already have tomato plants, Cheryl, wow! We don't dare get ours in till May.

I'm procrastinating. We just got back from our favorite place in Mexico, very late last night. I figure I can take a day to decompress before I tackle the laundry.

The pushkins, squills, forsythia, and a few daffodils are already blooming, and are reminding me that I need to clean up the debris in the gardens. But it's supposed to rain later, so I'll probably wait for awhile...

In this part of the country, we don't even think of planting until after Memorial Day.

Lady, you need to learn how to have fun and that ain't it! Take it from me. I know!

The garden centers here have got a good business. They chuckle when folks buy their plants early, plant them, the late frost kills them, then they have to go back and buy more plants to replace them.

I plant after Mothers Day, usually it's safe by then.

I hope you feel better soon, Taxy.

Dawg, I bought the patio tomato plants as little seedlings, and they're growing so fast. They have teeny little baby tomatoes on them already. btw, I haven't ever heard of pushkins so I did a quick search and it took me to a bakery in Sacramento, and a Russian poet. Will look a little more later.
