I've been putting this off all afternoon, but I think I'm finally going to get down the basement to wipe down all of the window screens. I used to do them outside, spraying them down with the hose. I think I ended up at least as wet as the screens! Now I take them down the basement, use a bucket of Murphy's Oil Soap water and an old towel rag, and wipe down the screening and frame. Himself will take them all up to their respective rooms, where they will wait until later this week when the weather is warm enough to open the windows wide, wash down the frames and tracks, and clean the windows. I wait until Himself gets the screens in the windows before I wash the inside glass though. It seems he just can't open or close a window without leaving fingerprints all over the place.

I got 14 inches dug of what will be a 24 inch deep x 24 inch diameter hole. I hit sand and clay that is compacted and had to stop when the thunder started. The hole is for Shrek's memorial Rose Bush, should be here Tuesday. Hopefully I have the hole dug and the proper soil mixture done before it gets here. I do know that my wheelbarrow is not big enough for mixing up the soil...

That's a lovely and therapeutic idea PF. What's the name of the rose?
We'll need a picture you know.
I think of you often. Are you getting comfort from your online grief group?

I just got back from getting kitty food and going to a Mediterranean market, where I picked up some fenugreek, green cardamom pods (wow are they expensive), sumac, and pomegranate molasses. I won a contest and picked a Persian cookbook as my prize and we're making 1 of the dishes from it this week. They were pulling freshly baked pita breads out of the oven while I was there making the place smell wonderful.

The rose is called Ebb Tide Figures it's on sale now...

Some comfort from the group, some are a bit odd, but then so am I. Haven't met anyone I feel the need to chat with all the time.

Plus 1. I wish roses weren't so hard to grow in south Florida. I love them, but just don't have that much of a green thumb or that much patience.
