Working is Over-rated!

We've gone four days without rain!  I never thought I would be excited to say that but there you have it.  We have had more rain in the last six months than we had all of last year.  Our tomato and okra plants are growing something fierce, we had a bunch of tomatoes that we ate last night.  I think the key was the new soil that Doodle mixed in because our peppers are not doing well at all and their soil was old.  Live in learn in the garden!

Last week was my first week working a full five days in over a year.  I had been on a compressed work week working four ten hour days with Wednesday's off.  Let me tell you, five day work weeks are over-rated!  I was exhausted by Friday afternoon and felt like I put in over 40 hours.  There is such a huge learning curve in my new department, I call us the three blind mice (and I am not joking) I hope they continue to have faith in me.

Doodle must have known that I was struggling because I came home on Thursday to a surprise bouquet of flowers, they are just beautiful.  We also got the plant stand that we bought at the estate sale back from being sandblasted, we were able to get the primer coat of paint on it and plan on getting the top coat done today.  Once it is finished, I will share some photos.

Happy Independence Day

Happy 4th of July!  The weather rained out all activities here in Georgia.  As I sit here, it is once again pouring... we have had 4 inches of rain in the past three days, with the majority of it arriving on Wednesday.

Doodle and I tried watching the fireworks on TV last night and the weather even played havoc with the satellite reception.  Instead, I had to get my fill of fireworks via pictures this afternoon.  Here is my favorite from Washington DC.

I told Doodle that we have to add fireworks in New York and Washington DC to our bucket list.  They certainly put on a show!  I hope everyone had a fun filled, safe 4th and that no one came close to eating 69 hot dogs yesterday.  *Smiles*
