So how has the weekend been for all of you? My BF has been sick with a sinus infection but coming over and putting the "troops" here to work. He had the kids doing all kinds of things yesteday. Normally, they just lounge and ignore me when I fuss at them. I should keep it up but it's much easier just to do the things than fuss for an hour.
We got the deck cleaned and almost all stained. I went and bought some flowers today to plant. My perennials around my pond look sad. This is the first year that some didn't survive the winter in that area. My wildflowers are coming up in another area but so are the weeds. What a mess that is. I'm so disappointed with my garden around the pond because that is usually the prettiest area. LOL..time to visit my mom again and grab some of her perennials. She was talking of needing to thin them out.
We had shish kebobs on the grill. Becky didn't come. She actually has a picnic today and tomorrow to go to. My BF tried to eat but started to feel sick. He's been ailing all weekend with some kind of sinus thing and needs to get some antibiotics.
The heat kills him and hot it is. It hit 90 today in the "Burgh". We had absolutely no spring to speak of at all here which is pretty typical. I'm getting antsy to get my pool up and running but it needs some patches. My dearest Megan had a party when I was in Fla. last summer with Joey. I came home to cigarette butts floating in the pool. Lucky for her I got home after midnight and she was leaving for college at 9 the next morning. I didn't notice the "damage" to a few things until she was gone. When I go to Ohio in June, if she's not working those nights, my BF is coming over to "babysit." Joey will be here but I don't want him to have to be responsible for Miss Megan and her antics.
Otherwise, the weekend has been super quiet. Megan is working tonight; Joe is back visiting in Pittsburgh; my BF is recuperating. I actually had to put on the air conditioner today. ROFL...but my BF did about croak. He walked in and Mocha was perched on the 32" tv again that he bought us.
Tomorrow is another day of much needed yardwork and planting. We are starting early in the morning so my BF can avoid the heat and humidity that we get by noon.
I was just wondering because another J-Lander brought up the fact that do you wish someone "happy" Memorial Day. Actually, it is a somber day of recognition. I suppose every holiday has turned into an occasion for celebrating nowadays.
I'm wondering if I should even use the siggy tag that was made for me for Memorial Day. It seems a little out of context but I guess I will and hope it's not offensive to some. I apologize if it is.......
