Also, my garden hose disappeared while I was gone and I was determined to discover it's whereabouts. But first ... let's trim this hugely overgrown rosemary bush. As I started hacking away trying to be somewhat gentle with it, I actually discovered the hose stuffed completely underneath the foliage so they could trim the edges without cutting the hose.
I suppose they get points for not damaging the water hose, but really ... how about just trimming the bush? I trimmed it all right ... at least 3/4 of it is sitting on the concrete. The entire underneath was dead branches.
The pile is twice as big now, since the bush next door got a haircut also. On that one however, I tried to just trim all the undergrowth and not destroy the appearance. Wasn't I surprised when that HUGE black widow spider crawled over my hand. Alas, she lives no more!!
I finally put my shears away and smelling of lovely rosemary, I went back to sewing on this new quilt. This makes my eyes hurt!! Doesn't it look like a pixelated picture? It's okay if you're up close and personal, but certainly not here!! Don't stare at it, you'll end up crosseyed!
After playing the ball game with this sweety, we watched another REAL ball game where the Dodgers beat the Giants 2-1 in the tenth inning. Seems every game is going into overtime.
I'd like to say I cooked an amazing dinner, but am still finishing up the Nutrisystem chunks of chicken from the frozen wasteland of my freezer. I get it now ... if you want to lose weight, you can only eat very small portions of meat along with vegetables or salad. Nothing else is allowed, except an occasional treat for desert, void of flavor but cold, so you think you are getting something special.
I'm actually going to try and replicate those frozen dinners so I can continue on the program. This month will be a test of the actual cost of trying to prepare and freeze this stuff myself. I have to admit it's amazingly simple to just nuke a piece of chopped formed chicken for dinner. The total ease of prep is a big plus!!
