Good Saturday Morning
Yesterday was a busy day of doing payroll, lunch and then I was on the run. I went to Daddy's and told him I wanted to dig up some of Mommas iris's, double daffodils and he suggested I get a clump of her huge double white peony. The iris were Mommas pride and joy and I can only remember one of the names of the old fashioned iris, Wabash. I think there were other ones but not sure. I just dug around in different parts of the flowerbed to get a sampling. In the middle of it were the beautiful double daffodils that she loved. I had not intended on those but they were all so entwined I had too. The of course he told me to get the peony. My Daddy is awesome but taking care of stuff is not in his DNA. His gardening tools have a lot to be desired, like the onion hoe's. I went to his shed where not much is in it because most of his tools are outside, leaning up against the shed. I found a small shovel and used it to accomplish the digging task but sadly it didn't hold up to the peony digging. The rusty shovel broken in two. I had to go find another shovel to finish the task. Unlike the onion hoes that were fixable the shovel was not so lucky but I guarantee that it will not see the inside of a trash can until the day he dies and we clean out his house. It will continue standing vigil with is other brother tools, rotting away. So now I have a box full of iris, daffodils and peonies to plant when I spend some time at the cabin. I'm going to do a lot of gardening when I get there. Oh my aching back!
Toodles all and have a great weekend! Tune in tomorrow, same blog, same girl, more rambling!
P.S. The MRI results are back on The Hubby's injury...he's fine, just horrible muscle spasms I guess and he uses and abuses his body. He's in great shape and was a load off of his mind after years of worry.
