I feel like I am playing catch up. Last month we took a mini-vacation to Disneyland. Our daughter was going to meet us there for Sat and Sun but she had to fly out Sunday. So we did California Adventure with her and her two kids. Got to enjoy the new Cars Land! Poor hubby had a bad knee - he had hurt it before we went down but didn't count on abusing it as much as we did - according to the steps counter on my phone we walked more than 12 miles just on that Saturday alone! Needless to say, it is still not back to what it should be but getting better day by day.
Last week was a killer - I worked 3 nights in a row - had one off - and then 2 more nights in a row. But it "earned" me 5 nights off! And they have been pretty productive altho spring is hitting me hard (allergies, you know).
Thursday night was just recovery. Took the car in for its "A123" service (translated that means - expensive!) and they decided it needed new front brakes too. Ouch.
Friday we ran around and di a bunch of errands. And then headed over to daughter's house to see the 3 boys, and the oldest one in his 5th Grade Play - Little Mermaid. He played the "Pilot" and did so well!!! And he enjoyed it much more than he thought he would! The play and the actors were very good - my only complaint were the folding chairs!
Saturday was yard day (after going to market and a couple of garage sales - nothing exciting from them) - hubby did a bunch of weeding - I did planting. Hubby also cleaned off the back porch - this is where, while we were in DL, our dog decided he would "do his doody" because it was raining out. Hopefully he gets the message now...
Because of the water restrictions we are going to have to keep our veggies down this year. I planted some more radishes and carrots ..... the first planting is going strong, as are the lettuce, onions, and garlic. Then I bought a "cold hardy" tomato at the market - put it in a container since the garden is not ready for planting. And planted little red potatoes - today I planted the russets until I ran out of dirt (told hubby I would but her didn't think so.....HA!). I also planted one purple potato.....apparently I did not harvest all the potatoes out of one container last year - went to turn over the dirt and reuse the container and found 3 plants growing! Wonder what they will be like?
So far the plan for the rest of the garden is one more tomato, cucumbers of course, ONE squash and replant the strawberry plants that survived his digging up the garden. And maybe add to it. No experimenting since we wont have the water to do all that....
Today I got our taxes ready for the tax man tomorrow. Went to OSH for an extension cord cause it is sales tax free day (wish I had known about the dirt before we went!).....and now I am going to go do some laundry and some knitting.
I have the first project done for the first swap of the year.....not due until the end of April so now maybe I can get going on a gift for the 2d swap! LOL. Wanted to make a little boy sweater for a friend's grandson but cant find a pattern I like - and cant find yarn I like! So right now I am working on some socks for me.
The bits and pieces for my bra for the Bras For The Cause Walk in May are coming together.
I do need to get to work cleaning for Easter in April - need to clear out the kid's room and do the sheets and make the bed in the other room. But today does not feel like a cleaning day.
