Dad left today. I spoke to him a little while ago after he had boarded the plane but had about a half hour till take off. His flight was 45 minutes late and I am assuming because of the fog we had here this morning. He should be on his way to Charlotte now and then a plane change to Little Rock. When I am finished here I will look up the address for Whole Hog Cafe and text it to my step sister who is to pick him up at the airport. I know he would really like to eat there. The rats and I are going to miss him big time.
After returning from the airport, Paneras, and a couple games of Wii, I finished my little front bed project. Even though it feels like it, it is not spring so I can't plant but I can pull weeks, clean up debris, and do some garden evaluation. Yes, the beds are looking sad but considering everything I am surprized they are not worse. I paid only minimal attention to them the last couple years as I was going to school. Then just before graduation is when I started seeing the podiatrist. That walkway up to the front door has been a nightmare trying to figure out what will live there happily. So far the Areca, which I tried to take out a couple times and it keeps growing back, and the African iris. I put the African irish there as a temporary holding spot a couple years ago and it took off! It blooms almost year round there too.
After working a couple hours on the beds yesterday, I told my Dad that my next husband was going to be a landscaper. He said Jerry was smarter than me because he married one. LOL
