We’re heading into triple digits this week. That means my menu is going to take a sharp turn to lighter, cooler meals. Even though we have air conditioning, we really don’t like eating heavier meals when it’s Crematoria-hot outside.
We finally got my dirt! We spread the first load and hope to spread the second truckload today. The bad part is that I might not be able to plant my shrubs and trees that have been waiting patiently in pots until temps cool down a little. Transitions are hard when it’s this hot.
I don’t like keeping large plants in pots for too long either. I’ve already had to return two that were starting to show signs of stress.
More on the dirt work later. It was a much bigger job than I had anticipated. Expensive too. $500 just for the dirt alone–but that’s still cheaper than buying it by the bag.
For Memorial Day, friends invited us to have bbq with them. I was ready to have people over at our place, but I was glad for the invitation. With all the work we’ve been doing outside, we’re exhausted. I’ll make a nice dessert and some homemade coleslaw and baked beans as my offering.
American friends, what are you doing for Memorial Day? How’s the weather by you? I see that there’s a tropical storm moving into the Gulf Coast. Makes me glad we don’t live in SE Texas anymore. One less thing to worry about.
