So we have had rain now for a week, (or more, who knows, it feels like forever) and looking at the weather forecast it's going to go on for another week. Usually I enjoy rain, I love the smell of it and it's nice, but the cloudiness and bleakness and the fact that I have stuff I need to do outside is killing me.
So Trudge on we did this weekend, rain or sunshine we were going to mow the lawn and plant some stuff, (I really wanted to rototill my garden so I could plant the tomato plants that are living in my kitchen sink- but who needs a kitchen sink anyways right.)
Out in the pouring rain we worked on Saturday. We planted some little dwarf boxwoods, (they're my favorite) just hopefully they can survive the heavy wind and snow they'll get where we planted them and I planted some flowers in my little planter. Who knows if I planted them right or if they'll grow. It was getting kinda sad that my mother in law would always have to come over and plant some pansies in the thing.I thought I'd at least try this year, maybe they'll grow outside cuz' heaven knows anything planted inside is up for a death sentence in the Foster home.
But during this lovely yard work I've realized once again that I HATE living in a subdivision.
First off, there is no where to put your grass clippings, it's in the garden or in the garbage which than is so full that you can't actually fit your garbage in it, Also Dirt- we poories here don't have a wheelbarrow so it's actually a lot of work to take stuff to the garden? Where does it go, ahh in the middle of our sidewalk that sounds good Honey.
The other crappy thing about subdivisions is the closeness and the neighbors and their lawns. Geez people don't you have any thing else to do than take care of your lawn, guess not. We have just yonder over the fence and ten feet, lovely Charlie- (retired man who seems to be bored out of his mind and really has nothing else to do than make his lawn look freakin immaculate, and walk around outside all day- yes even in the rain) I like him though even though I think we've said maybe 5 words to each other, He's the quiet, keep to himself type that likes to sit on his deck, that looks in my living room widow, and smoke his cigarette and read his newspaper every morning around 9. Feel like I really know the guy. :)
So Anyhow did I mention Subdivisions suck, and I'm sick of the RAIN.
