.........the weather man that is. Now he's saying that on the 4th we can expect about 71*, some sun & some showers. So what's it going to be? I guess a couple of days will tell all.
Meanwhile I went to Fred Meyer today and bought all the necessary food items for our "camp out" down at the waterfront with Bob and my grand kids. I made a list, checked it twice but forgot the mustard. I even bought a small birthday cake for my grand daughter who turns 16 on the 4th. But I forgot the mustard. I hope I have enough for a little dab in the potato salad I'll be making Thursday and then the hot dogs on Friday.
While I was at Fred's I wandered thru their great garden shop. I found bedding plants in 4" pots "buy 2 get 1 free." They had some beautiful marigolds and even though I've never been a fan of marigolds I bought some to put in the planters on my little porch/deck off my dining room. I also got 4 little containers of alyssum. And some other marigolds and salvia to put out in another area n my front yard. I was glad I had some $$ left on my Mother's Day gift card so I could add to my flower garden.
I've got the back yard all squared away for the fireworks that will be coming over the fence. Last night I finished the mowing & used the weed wacker to get the tall grass that's growing along the border between my yard & the one next door. I watered for awhile out there today and will turn the sprinkler on full blast tomorrow & let it run until late Friday night or Saturday morning.
My sister in law came by this afternoon and picked up the tickets for the 4th of July boat ride. We decided there's just no way we could make it work. Bob's camper will be parked & blocked in at a location along one section of the waterfront and the boat departs from another waterway several miles away. And apparently there's no shuttle service between the two points. I told her to take lots of pictures.
I think the U.S. Air Force must have received their monthly jet fuel allotment...because they've been doing their "touch & goes" pretty much non-stop the last couple days. Yesterday the C-17's were flying so low and making so much noise that they were setting off car alarms all over the neighborhood.
I still haven't heard from the computer fix it place, so I'm hoping they didn't put my P.C. up for adoption. They said they'd call and let me know what's what but so far nothing. Well, maybe they said they'd call if they found something different from the diagnosis I gave them. Now I'm confused.
So that's about it from my little corner of our great big world. I hope everyone is having a good week....it's almost over. The holiday weekend is almost here.
I can't believe I forgot the mustard, it was #1 on the list.
Until next time, Linda
