rain, rain, go away

I'm getting really tired of schlepping an umbrella to work.  *whine*  Yes, I know it could be snow (or, being NC, ice).  But I am SO ready for Spring!

Okay, yeah...I know it's February.  But I'm getting itchy fingers and want to plant stuff, damnit!  I've decided I'm going to try my hand at container gardening again this year.  And damned if almost the minute I told Kent that I wanted to, I got a Burpee catalog in the mail for the first time in *years*.  I used to live for those when I lived in Konnarock.  It was like the Sears toy catalogue for grown up me.

Okay, even for kid me.  Even though we lived in town with impossible red clay soil and a postage stamp yard, I could design gardens for my dollhouses.  Yes, I was a strange child.

Work is going to suck hardcore this weekend.  I work an extra-long shift Saturday with the new GM (to say we don't gel is a gross understatement) while Kent is off, then he works an extra-long shift on Sunday when I'm off.  Phooey.  While I love time to myself, I also love having one day off a week with the spousebeast.  We've gotten used to our Sundays.

I'd planned to go out to do "me stuff" Sunday.  Earlier this week, it was SUPPOSED to be sunny and 72F (L.A. Story weather!).  Now, they're predicting 70F...and rain.  Double phooey!  Although, considering I'm pulling 7.5 days' worth of shifts in 6 days, maybe that's Mother Nature telling me to stay the hell home and get some rest.

In other news...there is no other news.  To mangle a lyric from Abba, all I do is eat and sleep and work, wishing every shift was the last shift.  ;)

Happy Friday, y'all!

I wish I was better at keeping plants alive. Animals I can do. Plants tend to take one look at me and keel over. I do enjoy living vicariously through those people who are good at plants so please post photos when you do plant things.

Good luck at work, working with a superior you don't get along with is no fun.

Document your garden adventure! I have success with herbs and tomatoes and that is about it as far as containers go. :(

Sounds like a plan!!

I too am ready for Spring and can't wait to start planting and prettying up the garden.

I'm jealous of your 70 degree weather, even if it is raining.
