I just delivered Mr. Plant Lady to the rendezvous point for his flight to Dallas. He is being accompanied by three other colleagues from the surrounding area. One of them has just proposed to his girlfriend a week or two ago and she has accepted! The last time I saw him, he told us he had decided to pop the BIG question. I was anxious to hear the BIG news!
Early this morning we met for an early breakfast at Bojangles before heading to the airport. As they departed we prayed for traveling mercies and for a successful trip. I don't know what I will do with myself for the next two or three days. This evening I have planned to eat supper with my daddy. We will get seafood, I guess. That is one of his favorites! I have also planned to help him spread some caulking on the roof where he has removed an old television antenna. When the DTV transition came into effect, the old antenna refused to pick up the signal. He now has just the cheap $9.98 rabbit ears that go inside. I cannot explain why the cheap-o antenna will pick up all signals and his super-duper rooftop antenna will not-go figure! By the way, a few days ago I had promised to help him remove the big antenna from the roof. He has a large extension ladder that he was going to use and he wanted me to remain on the ground, hold the base of the ladder, and retrieve the old antenna as he handed it down. As I arrived, there was my 83 year old daddy, up on the roof with a broom, sweeping pine straw from the shingles! He had already removed the BIG antenna by himself!
In my previous post, I mentioned the presentation I had to make to the garden club. It was cancelled due to the inclement weather and rescheduled until the next week. OK, that sounds good, I put it on my calendar. A few minuted later, a call came -"Can we reschedule it for either the 26th or 29th, the hostess has another commitment for next week?" "OK, the 26th is good for me" A few minutes later the phone rings again- "Can we possibly postpone until May 19?" "OK, that will be fine." "Will you have any herbs by then?" "Yes, they will be ready by then." "Great, plan to include them in your presentation!" So now, not only do I have to talk about gourds, I also have to speak about herbs! I will REALLY need your prayers in May! I really enjoy all the interest in my projects in the garden. Who knows what I'll be doing next?
On another note, I just got all my Christmas decorations up in the attic. This morning, I'll be vacuuming and dusting-anything to occupy myself while Mr. Plant Lady is gone! Anyone interested in helping is welcome! Dishes are neatly stacked in the sink ready to be washed -not one of my favorite tasks. Laundry from the dryer thrown on the sofa to be folded. Another not-so-favorite task, but one that needs to be done. (we are running out of clean towels and washcloths in the linen closet)
Have you noticed how rambly this post has become? I am really lonesome here "home alone". I may need all my bloggy friends to keep me company while Mr. PL is away. There's just so many things I can think of to do. Perhaps, clean out my closet? No, I'm not that lonesome!
