Weekend Woes

Today’s picks

So much for my “to do” list for this weekend. I have been plotting and planning for several days all the things we will accomplish and even more so when I found out Paulina was coming home. Well Robert Burns in his poem, “To a Mouse” was right when he noted (please be aware that I am paraphrasing) that the best laid plans of mice and men often get thwarted.

My moss roses

My knees have not been cooperating with the idea of work as of late. I don’t know if it is my diet, the weather or just old age. My right knee has a pinch in it that seems to move around at random, and my left knee the past two days just keeps getting bigger and bigger. This evening is much better than this morning was. I thought I was hobbling on a couple of stumps. I have also been having some swelling in my fingers and so perhaps I need to seriously look at what I am eating. On the other hand, the chiropractor suggested it might be the amount of time I have been spending in the car lately. I personally think it is the cold and damp weather we have been having.

Morning glories in the cucumbers

Anyway, my point was not to complain, but just to say that I wanted to do all these wonderful things, but got to none of them. About the only thing that I did get accomplished was a little picking in the garden, which really for all points and purposes except for the tomatoes could just as well be pulled up. I may just start doing that this week. OK, so I won’t. I can’t ever seem to so that. I have this list that says: prune raspberries, cut off dead holly hocks, replant shrubs, plant mums, repot geraniums and none of it is getting down. Maybe I will remember to take in the poinsettias tomorrow. Hopefully I do that before we start on the tomatoes…It never ends around here, and then the knees hurt and I don’t get out of the chair. Maybe that would be a good time to work on the needle work… I promise to quit complaining and share my pictures. At least they are a little cheerier than I am.

I would love to hear from you, so go ahead, comment!
