Made it out of there and back home. Jump in the shower, dress and downstairs just in time as daughter pulls up. Didn't even have time to take pain pills. Get back home. Feeling guilty. Head back to the church. Every year I buy at least one item at the fair. So I get a pair of cute gold Christmas bow earings, buy a $1 chance (didn't win) and buy a cup of coffee. I did my bit, head home. Oh no. Did I miss ATK? No. Just in time. But fell asleep at the very beginniing and slept through the first 15 minutes.

Legs still hurting, only more. It is my thigh muscles. It has something to do with my thyroid. Don't know what, but was told many years ago by a doctor. Have to remember to ask my doctor the next time I see him. I still have a lot of things I have to do. Empty the five trash baskets and put in new liners, do three loads of laundry, clean the bathroom, a sinkful of silverware, take pain pills, finish paying bills on line, clean the kitchen, on and on. All I have managed to do is take pain pills. Oh I forgot, get meats wrapped for the freezer, make a fresh pot of coffee. I think I am going to call Son #1 and ask for his help. Hate to, but have no choice. I am getting too old to have a plate this full. I am goiing to have him take the laundry downstairs to do the laundry. I have been saving quarters for just such a day. Then while he is waiting for that to be done he can do the trash for me. The rest I can do tomorrow after I have given my thighs a chance to recover. I am exhausted.
Busy busy rest up.

Sat up way too late last night, goofing off online. Woke up at 11, we did the quick shopping, played with puppies and kittens and back home. Just got done eating some leftover pasta, sauce and sausage. Now I don't want to move.

Even my teeth are tired...

We are back from Bunnings

We bought 2 big Tuscan pots, larger than the ones we already had, in forest green colour Also 3 bags of potting mix..but we only needed 2, good to have a spare bag though

We also bought Harold Hoot which is an owl ornament and also it scares of pesky birds..it's eyes flash and it has a sensor..it goes Hoot Hoot when anything is near it We have trouble with blackbirds always digging around our plants and in the bark...drives us mad!!

We have repotted the Ficus and the Parlour Palm in their new pots, they look great!

Also bought some Cane Straw Mulch which we have laid out on top of our modular garden bed

Both have had lovely showers as it was stinking hot out there already, 30 degrees and we were sweating like anything...so nice and fresh now relaxing in the air conditioning with a coffee
