Friday we were out of bed early,raced around the house,
doing a few inside chores and prepping our supper. Late
morning we are outside with dirt,flowerpots and some
annuals for Gma to set into the perennial flower areas.
We planted 9 red geraniums, 2 asparagus ferns,2 large pots
for moss roses. We have 2 pots of flowers the grandchildren
brought Gma for Mother's Day.

Took us until lunch time to do this project. A quick lunch and Gma the
slave driver has us back outside. Now she is weeding in the perennials.
Before I know it,she had a big tub of weeds. 3 hours into the plant work....
I'd had enough! I DEMANDED to go inside.... This Princess was pitching a fit!
I WON THE BATTLE AND WENT IN TO SNUGGLE ON THE LOVESEAT.
It was a cool day and very little sunshine....

Later GMA CAME FOR THE SEED BOX.
Off she went to plant:
PARNIPS,RADISHES,SEVERAL KINDS OF LETTUCE AND NEON SWISS CHARD.
I totally ignored her next project!

Friday during the night, the wind came up: the wind blew,heavy
rain, then hail,thunder and lightening! We woke up to water puddles
everywhere. Over an inch in the gauge,even with wind.
Saturday THROUGH TODAY we had VERY LITTLE SUN and SHOWERS.

We've been hauling the peppers and tomatoes out to harden those.
By evening we haul them back into the cattle room.
5p.m. they issued a FROST ADVISORY....so OUT WE GO!
Hauled all the flowerpots inside.
Also brought the peppers and tomatoes back inside.

The Sun stayed out all of 30 seconds today. Now more showers.
Gma left the started garden plants covered up all weekend.
It's like they have a little individual greenhouse around
each plant.

Gpa put hay bales on the west side of the garden to act as
a wind break. It's been too WET for him to work the peat moss into
stock tanks. Also too soft for him to put the garden fence up.
The yard is overgrown..while we waited for a lawnmower part that
arrived today.

Couple times this weekend,between showers we picked up sticks.
So we have several tubs of debris for Gpa to haul away.
The cucumbers and cantaloupe seeds planted in the house
came up. They are looking good.......
It will be awhile before they go to the garden.
A few seeds Gma will sow directly into the soil.
So we should have early and late crop.

The rain has messed with my peoples outside plans.
The rain will do the garden more good than hose water.
Now the temperatures have fallen off and are 15-20
degrees below normal. Haul it in, haul it out!!!
I thinks Gma is a CRAZY WOMAN!

I was MOST happy over the weekend...Gma caught up on laundry,
some cleaning and did some baking!
I ENJOYED LAYING IN THE HOT LAUNDRY. I SAMPLED THE
POUND CAKE AND BEER BREAD (SHE WASN'T FAST
ENOUGH AND CRUMBS FROM THE BREAD HIT THE FLOOR)...
I swooped in and grabbed those crumbs. I caught
up on my Napping and Pulled guard
duty on Memorial Day.

They went to my human sis's house to celebrate
Jaxcen's birthday. Just the 2 sets of grandparents
Sis had Gpa out together her new elliptical unit.
The kids both have moved to bedrooms in the basement.
So sis has been busy painting and decorating those rooms.
They had supper and dessert...It was almost bedtime when
they arrived home. Yep! It was Showering again!

Precious and I both stayed inside the house while
they were away.
We were not naughty and didn't break anything...
Gpa had to feed his 3 bottle calves in the dark.
Gma hauled her plants inside,yet again!

Human sis doesn't bring her plants in...if they freeze,
she will replant...Gma said, she's not going there!
If we keep up all this lifting...............
Pretty soon Gma should have her Summer Muscles .....

We are hoping the showers Blow off tonight! We have
tons of outside stuff to do. Grandson and his Mom
are coming up Friday night.
Jaxcen wants to go try his new birthday fishing pole
and lures.
Gma's Aunt is having a household sale on Saturday.
Only a 1/2 mile to her house.
Gma is expected to put in an appearance. Today we
did as much deep cleaning as we could fit into the day.
While the veggie and flower gardens are on the Back
Burner.....Gpa took me out to Hunt and Snoop!
I was inside for the better part of 3 days.

I am getting an increase in my Treat Allowance....
Mostly, cuz all this outside stuff is cutting
into my play time! I think, grown ups
call this a BRIBE?
Jaxcen is 8 now and he knows this stuff!

Mazy, I always get tired after reading your diary. All I did was nap today - BOL. Momma said we better stock up on naps because when we move to New Mexico the humans will be making all kinds of noise finishing the inside of the buildings so naps will be a thing of the past. I tried to point out that Puffy and I are not going to help with the completion of the buildings so I'm pretty certain that lots of naps are still in my immediate future.

I'm glad to hear that you're getting additional treats – you deserve them.
