a good Friday

Any Friday you can spend at home is a good Friday in my opinion. So here I am at home and enjoying myself. I got up early and did a lot of gardening. I'm moving bulbs around. Taking them from one place to another. I want a space for a patio with a table and chairs that isn't directly in front of the garage doors. Which means, I have to move a large part of my garden and move quite a bit of dirt as well. There is a huge tree stump which no doubt still houses some toads in the spaces left by the slowly decaying roots.

I also removed the sugar snap pea plants as they were done blooming and the harvest was over - too soon. I also pulled out the cilantro which was blooming over much - a sign that it was past its prime in the flavor department. The parsley is still going great guns and I planted basil and radishes in the former pea pod area. Everything else is looking really nice and I'm quite pleased at the improvements. I am thinking of moving the birdbath back to previous position in the woods. But I assume the cats will take this as a team advantage. Cats 2, Birds 0. Squirrels cheering madly in the stands as it means more seed for them.

We had a little outing. Superficially to pick up something my husband needed from work. But really he just wanted to eat at the Indian buffet close by the office. It was worth for me as I don't get such delicious fare often enough. However it may not have been the best choice for him considering the Rx is giving his stomach fits.

The grill king was lamenting that while the weather was absolutely perfect for burning meat outside, he is feeling under the weather and not able to grill. He will probably be going back to work on Monday despite my objections. At least his pain is under control, if not his digestive track.

The really down note of the day is that an old friend in the weavers guild has died this week. Monday there will be a memorial service for her. I just do not do well at these things. But it is important for families to know that the community shares their grief.
