Which is just what Jim appears to be doing here.
Today is really gorgeous. The temperature is 80, the sky is clear blue and there is a light breeze. We were up at the crack of dawn to be at the hospital by 7 A.M., but that being the case, we were home by a little after noon. Now I have the afternoon free to do some planting.
I thought I'd share some pictures of our yard.The hostas look so healthy.
Not only are the lilacs pretty, the perfume is heavenly.
Last night Jason and Linda stopped by after supper with two Rose of Sharon bushes for me. Jason, being the dear friend that he is, planted them out by the bird feeder. I'm hoping as they grow, they will provide shelter for the birds who come to the feeder.
By the time Jason finished planting, it was time for the NCIS season finale. Jim put the coffee pot on and they stayed to watch the show with us. Linda doesn't like Ziva, but she was careful to say little as Z is a favorite of Jim. I, on the other hand, don't usually like Tony, but felt really sorry for him last night. Of course, we were left hanging at the end, and my question is this: "How is Ziva going to survive the summer with all that blood on her face?"
I'm also a BIG fan of Without a Trace. I have been hearing rumors that it is on the bubble, which means it might not be renewed for next year. After watching the finale, I'm pretty sure it won't be renewed. They wrapped everything up with a pretty pink bow and said "Goodnight". I was really disappointed.
The good thing about our favorite shows being done for the season is that we will now stay out on the porch (where I don't allow a TV set) and read and listen to good music until dark. Sometimes we even dance out there. Of course, we'll have to get both of Jim's hands working before we can indulge in that pastime.
Okay, I have a crossword puzzle calling to me which I can't get to until I plant my flowers. Also, I have to iron some things. J. Jill has an offer (at least in the Rochester store) where you can bring in gently used J. Jill clothing and receive a 10% off coupon for new purchases. I have several things that are too big this year and I intend to take them in tomorrow. They donate the clothing to the local Battered Women's Shelter. What a good cause.
Okay, this time I'm really off. Have a great day.
