We went to Yeagers/ACE this afternoon armed with our 20% off coupon good today or tomorrow. As you can see above, I have a new lease on life with new clippers in two sizes, a trowel, and gardening gloves (I bought 2 pairs.) We also bought fifteen 40-pound bags of potting soil. AND – the coupon was good, WAS for 20% off the entire purchase. Woo HOOO!
I suggested that we distribute the bags of potting soil around the yard where they would be used, rather than piling them up and then having to wheelbarrow the bags around. We put 9 bags in front of the trio of brick planters I just finished weeding. 3 more went in front of the elephant ear planter. And the final 3 were distributed when we drove around through the back yard and around to the side where the two tomato planters and new iris planter are – one bag to each. I’ll start putting the soil into the planters tomorrow.
There were two men in front of Yeagers handing out poppies that we can wear to honor veterans. That was nice.
We stopped to buy lottery tickets while we were out, since we have lots of great ideas about what we could do with the $1.4 BILLION or so it’s worth now. Our winning number will be announced tonight. :0)
Kay’s daughter sent us some tea to try from when she was in the area and stopped at a store they like. I’m drinking a cup right now. It’s very pleasant and comforting, even though I’m a coffee-holic. It’ll be particularly nice to enjoy on cold winter evenings when I’m curled up under my throw in my recliner. NICE of her to think of me and send it to me.
So we have had a good day today. When I finish my tea, I’ll do my yoga practice for the day. (DAY 113)
DON’T FORGET TO SET YOUR CLOCKS BACK ONE HOUR TONIGHT. Do you think our lawmakers will EVER realize how much their constituents HATE Daylight Savings Time?
