I potted some plants yesterday, purchased a few more, cleaned up the porch and did one of those Instagram stories. I left it until late in the afternoon when traffic was getting heavy, so I was frustrated by the sound of traffic. And since IG stories can only be in short segments, adding more segments to tell the story was a tech challenge for me and I had to keep stopping to figure out what to do. Yikes.
I think I sound a bit hyper, simply because I was trying to cram everything into each little segment. Anyway, it’s a tour of the porch and it will be up on IG until about 4:00 or so. If you don’t know where the Stories are, they are at the top of the app when you open it. Each story has a little circle around it.
I don’t think I’ll do these too often!
Today, some weeding and mulching and lawn mowing and a host of other garden chores on my lists. I’m going to start early because it’s hitting 89 degrees today. And 91 degrees tomorrow. Then it goes back down into the much more normal 70s.
But I’m not complaining! It’s sunny. It isn’t raining or windy. And I love being out in the garden. This time of year, every day is a wonder. New growth, seemingly doubled overnight. Amazing.
Yes! The oriental poppies are getting ready to bloom!
Porch planting. How can you not smile when you see this calibrachoa?
Don and I have pretty much decided that I’ll wait to go out to California at the end of the musical’s run. Since this is a new musical, it’s being changed constantly during the preview process (like Anastasia was) and he is in rehearsals all day long and then performing at night. We’d never see each other. Seems to make more sense to wait and since I still have no idea when the chimney guys will get to our chimney, I can’t go anywhere right now, either.
He’s really loving the process. Yesterday, they gave him a slew of new dialogue and he had to memorize it for last night’s show. That’s what happens. Actors are giving re-writes, songs are changed, lines are cut, and it all has to go in that night. But it keeps it from getting boring, that’s for sure!
Have to get moving.
