Yesterday was a great day! Gary and I were off together and were able to meet friends for breakfast at the new Caddo Cafe. The food was good, the portions huge, the prices low, and the service WONDERFUL! I predict that Shellie has found the combination for success.
I was also able to work in the wildflower bed and remove some of the broadleaf weeds by hand. My father stopped by to tell me that it would be "easier with a weed eater". I couldn't quite convince him that I wanted some of the grass to remain to support the wildflowers. And I wasn't really in the mood to explain symbiotic relationships. J Anyway, I was very pleased to see that we have two strong colonies of ox eye daisies and that the purple coneflower is flourishing. I want to get more perennials and self-seeders established.
The electrician came out and put in two new ceiling fans for us. We also opted for those crazy-looking energy efficient fluorescent bulbs. The white light takes a little adjustment, but I think we will be happy with them. And the one in the kitchen is two years old! I really should change the office bulbs also. Have you noticed that I’m slow to embrace new fangled ideas? Lol
I went to the genealogy library while the electrician worked. I’m terrified of electricity, among other things. A side note: earlier in the week Dr. Phil featured people with “phobias and unrealistic fears” and my son said I should have been a guest. Anyway, I do have a reason to fear electricity. I was badly shocked once, to the point of nearly passing out. If someone hadn’t been there to unplug the cord…well, let’s just say that my fear of electricity is real and that I don’t like to watch anyone work with wires. So…at the genealogy library I found several interesting bits of information and it was a good day. I was also able to solve a problem I’ve had in locating a headstone at the cemetery- the lot number was wrong – and I took a photo for someone who has been patiently waiting for it.
I was able to edit an essay for a friend. That’s something I love to do!
I worked in our garden. Replanted some tomatoes and planted two butterfly bushes.
I watched a movie with my honey.
All in all, a great day! Hope today is great for you!
