I miss the days when several neighbors shot off big fireworks like they were competing against each other. Today only one neighbor shot off some and looks like they’re already done.
When I was a kid, I asked for a big American flag for Christmas one year. I kept it all these years. It’s not the same flag that I fly on my front porch. I don’t display this one outside.
Tomorrow is the 4th of July. I’ll be at my mom and dad’s. My dad is going to grill something, but I don’t know what.
Went to Menards and Wojo’s today. Got these three large barrel planters and a full tray of flowers. I started planting shortly after I got home.
This is just the beginning. I plan to get more planters and flowers, and some other stuff.
It was in my backyard a few minutes ago. I wasn’t sure what it was, but after getting a clear enough picture and zooming in, I was able to see the tall ears. A rabbit.
And I was just thinking about planting a vegetable garden.
I made it back to Maude’s Alabama BBQ today and finally got to try the Southern Fried Catfish Sandwich. It was a bit hot at first and I had to let it cool down, but it was wonderful. Next time I’ll try the Baby Back Ribs. Might get a full rack when I do.
I have a desire to try everything on the menu at least once. I’d go there more often if I had a driver’s license.
I just put grass seed in the spaces where the grass hasn’t shown up yet. Hope that works.
I put down grass seed last week. The grass has been coming up. I hope it fills in the whole area.
Just finished mowing the front yard.
It was easier going after I unearthed and removed the skull and ribcage that was buried there. At long last, the mound is flattened. I might’ve finished it sooner, but I didn’t work at it every day.
I just spread grass seed over it. At least I hope I did. I know I’ve seen grass seed before, but I don’t remember it being blue and smelling like chocolate cupcakes.
I hope the grass comes up right. I spread the seed around with my hands, and then used the rake to try getting the dirt over it, as the directions instructed. But I don’t know if I managed that part very good. I watered it, so we’ll see what happens.
This is a drawer from my kitchen. It’s where I keep my silverware, spatulas , sporks, stirrers and stuff like that. The staples that held the bottom of the drawer to the back became disconnected years ago. The back of the drawer had a big gap and stuff was always falling through it.
My solution was to put in the wood stick that you see in the picture. I put screws through the bottom board and the back board, and into the wood stick. Now the bottom is solid and I don’t believe it’ll ever be loose again.
