Oh that's right, it's the Fourth of July.
Monday I did some work for the non-profit (mostly with regard to our community garden), and then I spent some time with my son. It was very warm and humid, and we needed to go grocery shopping, so instead of hitching up his bike trailer to his bike, we decided to try out the town's car share program.
We made the reservation but I couldn't find the car share registration information and card! I tore apart my desk, and there were papers everywhere. My son stopped by and I said "it should be in that pile on the floor" and he said "here it is". Phewww. Thank goodness he has better eyes than me, he saved the day.
The car was wonderful - especially the air conditioning! I truly enjoy spending time with my son, having a bite to eat (thanks for the treat, J!) and going shopping, and talking about all sorts of things. And yes, I picked up some cat litter!
Tuesday was another day off, and was spent with the husband planting shrubs and hostas, and moving other shrubs hoping that they will thrive better. The shady east side of our house needed some sprucing up. I finished up adding some ground cover, and moving a few more hostas from the backyard 'weed bed' which is full sun (why did I plant hostas there in the first place!?) yesterday. I'm quite pleased with the results. A new clethra, two oak leaf hydrangeas (one was already there), a sambucus black lace in a slightly sunnier patch of that bed, some sweet woodruff, and a variety of hostas (Halcyon and Moonlight, and the ones I moved from the backyard, I have no idea).
I just got back from watering at the community garden, harvesting some garlic, dropping it off for son and daughter-in-law. Robert is just about done making us something to eat, and then it's time for some World Cup!
