I think if I procrastinate much longer I'll forget I have a blog!! I can't believe it's been a month since I posted. I think my main problem is that I spend so much time reading other people's blogs I never have time to post anything on my own blog. Plus it has been raining so much that I don't have any pictures either.

We've had a few nice days and I did manage to get some yard work done. Managed to dig out a bunch of tiger lilies. They are worse than weeds for spreading. I took a chance and planted a blueberry bush. It said it was zone 3 so hopefully it will survive. Finally got all my tomato plants put in, forgot to put one in my upside down planter though. All my pots are planted but everything seems to be at a stand still because it's been so wet with little sun. Got to work this morning and half the parking lot was flooded from the rain on the weekend!!!

I had a beautiful big bunch of red tulips at the side of my driveway but we had an early morning visit from a couple of deer who decided they should eat half of them for breakfast. Not impressed. Eat my grass, eat my weeds, but leave my flowers alone!!! Actually it's really unusual to have deer on our street. We live in the burbs but we are a few kilometers from deer country.

I work for the school board and am part of support staff. Well, we are having rotating strikes. We walked out for 2 days last week and we will be out for the next 2 days this week. I don't know how much good this is doing but I hope something happens soon. We will have lost 4 days pay after this week which is not easy especially with the summer break coming up. We don't get paid over the summer so this strike on top of that is not good.

I've read a few books since my last post but I'll save that for another day.

Bye for now.

  1. Times passes so quickly, I don't post on my blog half as often as I would like to.

    I don't know how other people manage to think of so many things to post about.

    Also, I spend far too much time on other peoples blogs and not enough on my own.
