Good morning and happy Sunday from the rancho! Oh. My. Goodness. I'm singing (to myself because I sing really REALLY bad) On the road again...I just can't wait to get on the road again...
Packing is done. Projects are kitted and in bags. Ice chest is cleaned and ready to fill. Phew. Now to get the house ready so DH can survive for the three weeks that I'll be gone. LOL The last week have been filled with questions like: Is there more sliced cheese? Yes, in the garage refrigerator. Did you get hot dogs? Yes, in the garage refrigerator and more in the freezer. Are you going to make cookies? Gee, it's 105 degrees, maybe. Do you see a trend? All about the food, peeps. LOL
I cleaned out my garden. I'm sure that DH can handle the zucchini and tomatoes, but harvested the last of the lettuce. My cucumbers will not be ready until I get back so I just need him to water and keep them alive. It's been so hot my potatoes vines crisped and disappeared. So...I got potatoes! A few of these potatoes are baking size. Score!
My flowers that are in open spaces are not happy. Too hot for too many days. But the patio plants are still hanging in there. I picked up the crown of thorns last year in the discard pile at Lowe's. Saved! My neighbor gave me two small Mandavilla plants last year. They were pretty beat up, still in the nursery pots. I replanted early this Spring and they are giving me some love.
This Amaryllis came from my son before he moved to the Bay Area. Ten years and still going strong.
