I'm about to start doing a rain dance. We, like many of you, are in a heat wave. I seem to be spending most of the day watering this or that. And yesterday, I darn near fried. I had done a sizeable planting at the cemetery and I felt I needed to get there to water, boy my arms are sore today. And then waiting for the bus on the return trip was brutal. I had purchased a beach umbrella to attach to my mom's wheel chair so we could sit outside some days and I used it. Not sure it gave me much relief, but it was so hot, I figured it was better than nothing. I know gardeners say to water early in the morning or late at night, but come on, it takes forever. I going out today with my muscle power, (my son) to purchase a soaker hose. My elbow just can't take me dragging things around any more. and sprinklers are just inviting birds to take a shower at my house, and heck I have a pond they can swim in. But mother nature if you are reading this, rain a little please. My beautiful roses are toasted.
On to other matters. There will be no July election in Ontario. YEA! it's not that I don't want to work, but I'd like my summer off if possible. We are officially on stand down till September 10th. YEA!
So.. I'll have some time to live it up in my basement. He! he!. I really need to clear things out. Like that's going to happen.
