Captain’s Log 5,560
The yard is finished! The yard is finished! The British are coming! Oh….wait. Wrong moment of excitement. I got home yesterday to find Victorino doing the last of the clean up. He is such a sweetie pie! He even dragged my trash and recycling to the street! When I went out to do it later, it was already done.
Once again, we went into the yard to get introduced to all the plants. And the mulch. And the irrigation tubing. He is going to come back every day to check on the grass until it is established. I simply cannot believe this guy!
He added a lot of color to the back. I told him I love dianthus, so he went out and got some and added them to the huge pots that had been stored next to the house.
Could they be any prettier? I ask you!
Everything else is mulched and watered and ready to grow grow grow! Five pygmy date palms in the front and now five more in the back. Come on, Mother Nature!
Cannot wait for summer!
On another note, I reported the asshat who assaulted a member of the museum staff. It took the committee about five minutes to respond to my email. The guy has been banned from all of their events AND they are sending Michael a gift certificate. He is pretty darn jazzed about that. He held his temper and avoided a “situation.” That is not his first choice, but he is learning.
I am doing some research for the upcoming exhibit. I have found some amazing material. Who remembers Tootsietoys? I sure don’t.
The company started out making the trinkets in Cracker Jack and for the Monopoly games. I love learning shit like this. What one ever DOES with the information is a matter of speculation.
I have a very busy day at the salt mines. Lucky me. Dinner tonight with Big Sister Mia and the doctor we both work for. YAY!
