MORE VIDEOS FROM YESTERDAY

Because there was already so much on yesterday's post, I saved these videos for today:







ABOVE:  in the last video I show you the Thistle plants in the garden.  I MIGHT had snaffled a dead head from one of the plants for seeds.
Yeah - *smiles*.

The other thing we did yesterday afternoon was 'rearrange' things in the front 'pond' garden:




ABOVE:  Before moving stuff...

 ABOVE: After.  Subtle, but I think it's improved.
Stew moved the very big pot to the left and the rusty metal cog to the right, then I
moved some of the smaller blue pots too.  We also put the succulent that was in a plastic pot into the mid sized blue pot, something that we had been meaning to do for a while, but just hadn't gotten around to yet.

I'm gunna take that terracotta pottery pot off the top of the air con unit ... looking at this photo shows me it shouldn't be there.  

ABOVE:  I like how putting a big chain from the pot to the cog 'links' them.  I think the garden still needs some native grasses, which we will probably get next weekend.

Now... today.  I'm going to sew some more zippered coin purses.  I think another 10 or so will be plenty to be going on with for now.

ONWARD...

So, as per usual, Lacy turned up for left overs.
I made her work for them.


ABOVE:  Is it called being 'pampered' if someone is drying your hair and another is cleaning your nails?  If so...  I got pampered.  lol

After that, I decided to go out to the plant nursery:


 ABOVE:  And I got these native grasses/plants for the pond garden.


ABOVE:  Awesome news!  NO dead fish for two weeks now.  I was obviously killing them with town water!  I now put shit in the town water to nuke all the chemicals.  Problem solved.  Yeah, the water is still green and cloudy, but I can't get it any clearer.

I just did the grocery shopping, in the heat of the midday sun!  And got home... unloaded and put it all away... now going to have a swim.
Cos it's too damn hot to do anything else.

Lacy left but came back, and is now planting those grasses... crazy tart.  It's so hot out there!

ONE MISERABLE COMMENT!  Do you have any idea how long it takes me to compose a blog post and update it all day long?  Yeah.  Those of you who have to read it first thing in the morning with ya freakin' coffee.... yeah.  HELLO.


ABOVE: COS.  I.  CAN.  

*** Our SWIM was WONDERFUL ***

And now it's time to sort out dinner, which will be chicken kebabs and salad. 

Well... after having our lovely dinner, Stew decided we should go for a walk.  I'm NOT one who ever goes walking on a full stomach, but we went anyway.
It was a very short walk (1.65 kms) at a moderate pace, thanks to feeling sluggish after dinner.  But it's a start on us taking more walks in the evenings now that  it's finally cooling down earlier.

Time to sign off for the day now... and just relax.

    Your nails could do with a new colour. Perhaps a different colour on each nail would look good, and use base coat this time! 😂😂

    1. Not a problem at all. I believe the pain has settled down heaps since I stopped having to use my hands so much with all the packing and unpacking! My thumbs still hurt but nowhere near as bad. Thank you for asking. ♥

  7. The pond garden looks much more in proportion, funny how a wider variety of sizes and the big pot being a bit further back have changed it. The linking with the chain is genius!

    Go Lacy, you are making my knees hurt just looking at you but good for you.

    Enjoy your very much well deserved swim, both of you!

    Gorgeous garden, our pond gets cleaned a few times a year. All the muck on the bottom is cleaned up and put on our compost heap, this really helps keep it clean. We have native fish, we started out with goldfish but they create a lot more muck. Love love love your sewing, Jo

I read your blog first thing every morning, I dont comment because I normally ring you several times a week for a chat, and I figure that is enough Steve for any normal person (obviously Bex doesnt count, she isn't normal, she married me by choice haha). Although if you want I'm happy to leave a comment in the mornings, just dont blame me for what they say, as mine dont get moderated haha
