I raked up whatever was dead throughout the yard after the winter; tilled and added new soil and manure to the garden; transplanted a few tulip plants to make room for some edible plants in a new area of my yard; put down plenty of grass seed; planted three varieties of tomatoes, two of chili peppers, two of basil, two of oregano, as well as cilantro and dill, which will accompany the perennials of chives (suddenly a shaggy mass grown in no time), a couple types of thyme, mint, rosemary, sage, and savory; and watered everything.

My wife is the gardener in the family (I'm the animal person). We have an allotment, which requires a lot of work (pun not intended). But it's a labour of love on her part. I can imagine it must be very satisfying watching stuff you've planted grow. And as you no doubt know, cap'n, it's most satisfying to eat homegrown food--not that there's much of it but that's not the point.  Smokin

I donít really enjoy gardening or yard work so much as I enjoy having done it. My main motivation is the kitchen: fresh herbs (and berries, tomatoes, peppers, and rhubarb) for a tiny fraction of the cost at the store make the exercise worthwhile.

Dealing with the heat. It's the hottest ever for this early in the year - 36C! Not even considering planting anything, but just trying to keep our existing plants alive.

Brought Mr Fuzzy to the vet for blood work. Not looking good. Best case scenario is that he has hyperthyroidism and I would have to give him a pill every day for the rest of his life. I'm willing to do that...

Listened to the Deep Tracks channel this afternoon. They had a really long set playing songs with the word "back" in the title. Among the songs played was the BB's Back Home. Always chuckle when I hear Brian singing that he will be up before the roosters. Yeah, right :-)

Had a smoothie for dinner. Blended blackberries, strawberries, blueberries, banana and yogurt.  Delicious.

Teenage cousin's mother let her go with me to sleep over this weekend. Yesterday we decided to show fave films to each other. She took flash drive with her, picked "My Little Pony: The Movie" (she's huge fan). Despite being apathetic about this cartoon, deal's deal. Prepared to be bored but there were funny scenes/ lines. Showed her "Cat From Outer Space" & "Samantha: The American Girl Holiday", she liked cat film better due to the many laughs, fictional things like cat can talk, uses power with shiny collar etc. She went back home today by bus.

NOLA BB Fan: My best to you kittie. Usually, hyperthyroidism is well-controlled with medication, so Mr. Fuzzy should be fine.

Well. Maybe I didn't say it better - here's teenage girl. She's got mother. That mother is aunt to me. Which means that girl & me would be cousins. I can't be aunt to anybody, being single child.
Mr. Fuzzy died, check the Cats thread, Reply #308: http://smileysmile.net/board/index.php/topic,17750.msg635252.html#msg635252

I took a first step in engineering a reconciliation between two fine people. My good deed for the day. Smiley

Checked Facebook page with vintage San Francisco pics divided into topics - driveways, streets, various things. Saved favorite to computer, folder "California", subfolder "Cities", sub-subfolder "San Francisco". There must be general California FB page, didn't check due to limited fast traffic. Went outdoors to walk with cat in the basket. Some chap said hello, I didn't hello back. In nearby food shop, lady wanted to give less change, I said count again, she did & gave more change. I said that's better. Friend Sonya rang to tell news, dwarf friend Daiana too. They like to tell news, they've got nobody to tell it except I. Then switched the cat's favorite animal doc, he likes seeing animal docs, especially about birds. He sits still just like people & attentively glued to the screen.

RR A 1 - I understood about your cousin's girl. I just meant that our situations were similar in that I was an adult spending time with a relatively younger girl. My cats enjoy watching/hearing wildlife on TV, too, although I have a big picture window from which they spend many hours observing
birds and such. One has not been spayed and she kept me up all of last night sitting there vocalizing to the neighborhood males sitting on my lawn.
