Another Saturday has come and gone. I did work outside a bit - planted two Indian Hawthorns, 5 azaleas, one camellia, and one gardenia. Two borders are now almost replanted. I only have a few more plants to get into the ground this fall. As for the trees, I'll have a nursery deliver and dig them in. If another late spring freeze kills this stuff I think I'll call a concrete company to come and make the whole yard a parking lot. I'm tired of this re-do and I want to get back to putting order into this chaotic house before the holidays. Sorry, I shouldn't complain I'm just tired.
Holidays!!!......I'm really looking forward to the holidays this year. I may or may not have a big tree but the Holiday Spirit will certainly find a welcome here. I've started my shopping (shhhhhh no one knows that) and would like to be through before black Friday. I won't go out in the crowd to shop the day after Thanksgiving!! Huntsville is really growing fast. Many families are relocating here from the DC area because their jobs are moving here. Our road system is just about maxed out and the holiday shopping traffic will be worse than DC's beltway. Nope, I won't brave the crowds to shop but may go out to watch the holiday spirit bloom.
Now I'm thinking of the fun to come over the next two months. My better judgement is telling me to close and rest so this semi-flare will end and I'll be chipper to enjoy everything and everyone.
