Thursdays I find to be extremely busy for me. By the time I take care of everyone, and get myself out the door just after 9:00 am to attend SMART exercise, not arriving back home until after 11:30 to having to figure out and start our Dinner, so Rob can be out the door before 3:00 pm with his "Crabby Cabbie" hat firmly set on his head. Phew ... a very challenging day to begin with, without having someone throw a "screw" into the day.
I had not yet gotten to this pond area since I have been so busy at the front of the house lately. The problem being was Rob placed these new ponds in on top of my perennials, then placed new dirt in on top of weeds that had not yet been pulled. New plants I had also purchased last year were gone, or buried under new dirt, along with the buried weeds. I was Madder Then A Wet Hen, "Let Me Tell The World", and I am sure half the World heard it !!!
Dang, dang and triple dang man, why would someone start something without figuring out the ground work first, in turn causing more work for "moi"? I suppose blinders have been put on a certain someone with the brain zoning in on doing one thing, not taking the surrounding into consideration !!!
It took me some time to calm down, as I certainly was NOT planning on having this on my plate this day, especially with....
Once I got our Dinner over with and cleaned up from, which I might add turned out very good as Rob does know how to BBQ very well.....
....I took my "Mad As A Wet Hen" self out to try to salvage what I could of the mess of my flower beds and save what perennials I could. It took some time, and I am sure there will be lots of weeds surfacing later down the road once they make their way back through the new dirt that was piled over top of them.
The feather's of this "Mad Wet Hen" finally unruffled themselves with a phone call to her most favorite "Crabby Cabbie" to apologize for overreacting. I am thinking the "Crabby Cabbie" came back with a muffled "I am sorry" as well, however I am not too sure about this, hoping this was the case .... lol.
Occasionally there is a pit in that lovely bowl of cherries, what we know as "life", however it is how the day ends with a reassuring "I love you" that makes it all worthwhile, regardless of who was right or wrong.
"Love isn't silly at all"?
I really do believe Man and Woman are totally "wired" differently from each other. I really think I will not touch this subject with a "ten foot pole", as I rather dislike any kind of politics, thinking this could open a huge can of worms, could it not ??? LOL
*Sigh* I think I have had more of a day then I planned on this day, as here it is almost 10:00 pm, with me having had a walk downtown, the outdoor kennel has been cleaned 3x , all four of the "Checkerboard Aussies" have had a piece of my undivided attention, the "Spectacular Six" have been fed 3x with a couple hugs and kisses in between, the indoor pen cleaned with new paper layed, a couple phone calls here and there received, a lady dropped by to have herself a couple of perennials I had divided from my plants ... and can you believe it, I still have to make my bed before I get into it, "Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard".
