We spent the morning in the garden today. I pulled one large green garbage can of weeds. And a lot of moss. We lost a few plants over the winter because of the snow. One was a Carnation. It was rotted through. I cut it back to the ground so there may be hope for it but I doubt it. I’m pretty sure a rose bush needs to go. It’s old and has never bloomed well. It gets a rose or two that the deer eat. Most of the weeds were easy to pull because the ground has been saturated but others have deep roots that go into a yard 3 neighborhoods over. At least that is what it felt like. Some of those weeds grow so quick. Maybe in a matter of seconds because I would just get an area completed and move onto a new section, look back and there were weeds in the previous spot. It is a mysterious thing. Anyway, the weeds are gone. For now. It’s not time to plant, there is still snow on the mountain but soon. At least I hope so.
We are making ribs tonight. I don’t think I have ever made ribs before. They are in the oven right now. And we are watching Judge Judy. A young woman just said, “Me and him was together…” I cringed. “He and I were together…”
Guess what? I work this week then next week I am on holidays. It’s only 5 days but I am really looking forward to having a break from work. We are going here. It will likely be raining but that is to be expected.
Here is something. I have blogged in the past about our marriage troubles. I am happy to say over the last few months things have been improving greatly. We are communicating. We are spending a lot of time together. Two things that can make or break a relationship. I look forward to coming home from work and my days off. He is being so thoughtful and going out of his way to do little things for me like making me breakfasts that I can take with me to work, making dinner and countless other small and not so small things. Most nights we get naked and go into the hot tub together before bed. We hold hands when we go out. We do funny things that are private jokes between us. For instance, he has this shirt that I absolutely hate. He got it for $1.99 at The Gap. It’s the ugliest yellow puce thing. My husband is quite fair and I tell him it makes him “look like he has the jaundice”. So today I hid it. He hasn’t missed it yet. I’ve been threatening to hide it for awhile. I will keep you updated.
And I’m pretty sure there was a spider in my hair for a good part of the afternoon that got in when I was outside because when I brushed my hair several hours after I found a little brown spider on my shirt.
