I should be getting my shower right now, but I wanted to post the news that I got the rest of the garden weeded last evening, and I rushed around like a mighty wind and planted corn where the peas had been this evening. Hopefully it will grow. With Paul around, it’s not “sheep’s in the meadow, cow’s in the corn”, but rather Paul’s in the corn! Yikes! Yows! Shut your eyes Sally! He knows what the corn is and I tell him to “be careful for the corn” and “don’t walk on the corn”, but sometimes he is concentrating on something else, and then either sits on stalks of corn or walks right over it. The corn that is there has suffered greatly, and some has perished due to Paul’s gardening. Sometimes, I just have to work hard not to cry over my pathetic, pitiful garden this year. I wondered what I was weeding for…just to have a bare dirt spot for Paul to play in? It may turn out to be just that.
In my great rushings around, I tried to set up a water sprinkler for a little bit this evening before we went to Bible study. I got soooooo disgusted! I have three sprinklers, and currently none of them work. I have one like we had a home, but something is wrong with our pressure tank and we don’t have enough pressure to run it (and I haven’t researched it to fix it yet,or hired someone to do all that, so my fault). Another one won’t spin around. In desperation about 10 days ago, I bought one for $5.97 at Wal-Mart, hooked it up, and watered the garden. It has rained since then, so this evening was only the second time I was going to use it, and it won’t wave the water back and forth. Oh, it made me so mad. Why can’t something just work! Anyway, I couldn’t spend any time trying to fix on it because I had to get Paul off the potty, get supper heated and eaten, feed Hannah, change clothes, and zoom to Bible Study. Now we are home, it is dark and getting late, and I am going to take a shower and go to bed. Maybe I can work on it tomorrow.
When I was putting up tomato cages earlier this week,
I turned around and next thing I knew, Paul was crawling
through the tunnel!
