Going to my first book club meeting this morning!
The book was good and then it got stupid. At least I thought it got stupid. I hope the nice ladies of the club don’t think I’m stupid. I hope I fit in. I hope I don’t talk too much to too little. I hope I find the courage to share.
I sound like I’m heading off to my first day of kindergarten. In a sense, I am.
I did some more landscaping yesterday. Two more palm trees, a small hibiscus, and a large Coleus. The child unit assisted me, and that was great! I trimmed the fountain grass and the bougainvillea. Then, we painted the trip around the front windows by the main door. There are a lot of windows, so it was tedious work – the taping was the worst part. That took twice as long as the actual painting.
The next adventure is the lawn. It is planted with Bermuda grass, but I hate it. Bermuda grass is a rhizome weed more than anything else. It’s gross. I want the lawn planted with real grass.
Bermuda grass – parts of it alive and part of it dead. Lawns planted with this look awful.
A professional lawn service has to come in and do this work. It is way too much for me. They bring in a machine to aerate the soil. They rake off the dead grass, churn things up, and re-seed. If I am going to have a lawn, I want a lawn.
