ummm.. yeah, i bought some flowers.....

Well, luckily for my family, I am very quick to get over things! the junk is still out there, but I got to thinking and it is not in the part of the yard i use and if Robert would take the time to clean up a bit, It wouldnt bother me so much.. what bothers me is the oven and washer that he picked up on the side of the road to scrap! those absolutely can not stay. the other stuff is workable and not so noticeable and where I spend my out door time, I guess I wont be able to see. Unless of course I want to pick more lilacs! He wasnt happy, because I got after his father and then his father got after him. Robby came in and asked me next time I have a problem with him to come to him myself.. yeah, nah, His father will get better results then I will.
So.. I stopped on my way home from work and bought the first four hanging baskets. I'll be making sseveral more flower shopping trips as I have 5 window boxes and four very large containers as well as at least a dozen large pots. I really would like to dig everything up around my house and plant bushes.. then do all my gardening in pots. I do have a bunch of plants in the ground, but I hate taking care of them... weeding.. ... I hate weeding. and I dont like bugs. or worms..
I was supposed to be a princess.. I'm sure I've mentioned that here before. I'm sure I was switched at birth.. I just know it. Had I been raised like the rich princess I was supposed to be, I would have a gardener!! and a cute pool boy! (I dont have a pool.. so I suppose I would get one.. if I had someone else to take care of it for me.) Though I guess if I were a rich princess, I wouldnt need to work and then maybe I would have the time to take care of the pool and gardens myself and would maybe even enjoy gardening more!
So thank GOd its friday. You know I love my weekends and I'm not on call anymore! Tonight I'm going to girls night at a friends house for a while. I think tomorrow I'm planning on staying around home. I might go to the grocery store. though I really only need milk and cat food. I have projects here to work on. If someone were to twist my arm, I probably could be convinced to go to joanns or micheals.. though I shouldnt.. Or to get more flowers.. but its supposed to be rainy and cool. I really should just stay home.
Sunday morning I'm going to a friends house. Theres a bunch of us getting together to work on quilting projects that were doing. I'm going to start cutting out all the pieces to the quilt I'm making!
So.. those are my weekend plans.. how 'bout you girls??
oh.. and I did end up making dinner last night.. but not til after 9;00, and only because I got hungry and wanted chicken fajetas! have a sweet weekend blogger girls!

Hi Viv,I am glad you bought yourself some flowers...they are very pretty..I get the same feeling some time of "Whats the use"but I try focusing on the positive things and not so much the negative and it helps me feel better...I wish life could be more perfect but it shall never be...but it is really good from time to time(smile)...

Blessings,Shelley

I can't stay mad either. It's just not my personality.

I planted my two front pots tonight. I really don't like gardening pots, because the hot Kansas sun dries everything out, and I can't keep them watered enough.

Mr. Bojo is working out of town over the weekend, so I'm not sure what mischief I can accomplish. We'll see. :D

Enjoy your weekend!

I read the other post also. I am so glad you are feeling better. The flowers are so beautiful. I have started putting out some. As our yard stands in water I put everything in pots and baskets. I wish for you a very fun weekend...m.

Stay Cozy, Carrie
