Then Monday was spent with my retina specialist. The good news is that I'm not blind or at least no blinder than I ever was, so a good check-up.. He is so busy he has 3 nurses now and of course I had the one I like the least. She has all the patient skills of a prickly pear cactus and left me for more than 40 minutes after my eyes had been dilated. My eyes always ache after my appointment.
Then it was out to breakfast, we'd left home too early to have any and I afraid that it was less than inspiring. I had a slightly off stomach the rest of the day and Mac said he felt like he had a brick in his stomach.
After breakfast it was off to Home Depot to buy plants for the garden which has looked a bit bare lately. Some perennials didn't come back this year and some of my bulbs have given up the ghost so it was time to restock. Mac told me not to be cheap, which I tend to be, and so I bought a load of new plants.
Today I started planting, but it's so warm already I can see that it's going to take me a couple of days to get everything in. I got in several Kalenchoes, a succulent from Madagascar and tropical Africa. They're so vibrant and pretty. I put them in the sunniest bed along with some red Zinnias. I'm saving the shadier bed for the blues and purples I bought.
While I was at the eye doctor Mac went off to get a new battery for our lawn mower. The last 2 times I've used it he had to push it around to the front of the house and jump start it with the car. I just heard him outside running it so he must have gotten the new battery hooked up.
Now that I'm cooled off from the garden, it's in the 80's today, it's time to go exercise.
