Busy busy...tweeted my back....so much for simple weed pulling, lol
But I'll plow thru getting the lawns done.  Reworking the main garden will wait :).
We cut down the purple smoke Bush.  It just flat out died.  I've read they do that. 
I have to start prepping foods for this weekend's party and finish my mask for it.  Gen liability audit today...yaay. Lease inspection yesterday, I would hit the dealership today but rain is coming, maybe tomorrow.
Hey, who blogs ?  I'm thinking that might be something to consider.  Looking for pros and cons.....
Oh well...best get to it.... Lots to do.. :popcorn:

Ofa Friday...
Pulled muscle is much better.  Its going to be hot and humid today.  Marci Gras camp party tomorrow.  Almost ready, just have to get fake flowers for some bottles I decorated up.  I quick coat of clear sealer when I get to the river.  Ah ha!, I will keep 1 bottle for I discovered a solar light will fit in it thus turning it into a table lamp for the darkness.
Meanwhile I am getting pics of a water line break.  It just so happens to be in the right half of my cabin drive.   They are fixing it as I type.  Tents going up today, my gal pal and I will decorate said tent before it gets obnoxiously hot.  The people should start to come bout 4:30. Then it's on! Plus the Michael Charles blues hall of fame to go see before he shuts down at 11 pm. I got no clue how I am gonna pull that off lol.
So have a great weekend.   Hmmmmm, wonder if I'll have a right side drive or if getting out of the truck will be a leap, hmmmmm

Sympathies on the pulled muscle. I was in the ER yesterday after tearing my bicep muscle. Lovely bruises on my arm, and a reverse-Popeye look with the bicep now two times larger. (I'd have said three but then a spinach reference is required).

For blogging, you'll need to master the uploading and maintenance software for whichever company you choose. Tweaking ANY template becomes difficult without some serious experimenting. Blogger is fairly easy but also fairly bland in looks. Many other outfits are also out there.

My goodness,  I hope it gets better quickly.  I just bent over to pull a weed and then the Bush tree thing. How did you do that? 
Thanks for the advice on the blog thing.  I am seriously thinking it might be an avenue to consider.  I am looking at Blogger and also WordPress.   Those to seem to be the best for the misinformed beginner. :)
 And with that,  it's time to get up and moving. It's going to be one of those days.   I had to light a fire under a few last night to get the tent up, if I have to drive to get table covers,,, it's not gonna be pretty, then me ND my gal pal will be slamming up decorations before the storms come....  ugh, I so did not want to wear the RBF today....

We got to the river early.  Needed to check out that water issue.  It wasn't as bad as I thought.  Slightly soft due to all the water. But, walkable.  Had dinner after I had to get snarky.  They didn't put the tent up,  I had helpers coming up to me asking.  So I snarled.  Nicely, of course.  Good grief,  decorating a 40 x 60, then the food tent, then all the tables in a heat advisory day would have been no fun for any of us...  It got done.  Then dinner with friends whom are having some serious issues, awkward didn't cover it, lol.
Up at stupid o'clock and we busted our backs with getting everything done.  Finished all things bout noon thirty.  Looked good.  Evil hot with a breeze so I had to run back and forth rehooking, retieing,  keeping the lil ones from snagging up the table decs lmao. We gave them all kinds to play with, they had a good time.  To the trailer for a bunch of stuff for serving.  Run sweat run Lololol.  Shower, get dressed, back check electrical outlets for crock pots, ice blow up holders had to be filled, I run up to feed Lira, check phone,,,awww carp.   
Zoomed to river edge where our neighbor was fishing out a seriously drunk city it female. 
She decided to jump canoe and swim up current, something about her sister.  I got one friend at the top of the dock walk trying to get her to listen, another friend on her dock trying to get this drunk city it out of the water and me ready to beeline the bank should she fall,  then I look right,  and SMH.  Here's a guy holding on to 3 tied off canoes.  He wasn't in good shape either.  Found out where he canoes from, offered up water and convinced him to stay put until I got to the landing to find out the whats what....   
I get back, let him know his party was going to be transported to the other place, here comes our landing super with rope.  Guy couldn't tie a knot he was so trashed.  Here comes the short bus , which to me was fitting.  Come to discover female drunk in city it thought her sister was dead, because the other canoe rental party fished a guy out of the water after he jumped off a rock and didn't come up.  He was blue, they saved his life...
I just bout had it with stupid but canoes got handled, drunk cityits, got handled.  Hey ho time for party face, the people are coming in. 
Excellent foods. Crawfish boils, gumbos, jumbulia, dirty rices, to to much. Cajun music, laughing sweating more laughing.  Big fun!
It broke up due to to much time for all of us in the heat.  Worked out good, as the blues guy was playing and we could catch the last set.
Glad we did.  This guy is good!!!!  Really good.
That closed the night.
Yesterday finish tearing the party down.   After that....none of us wanted to do a thing. Many compliments, lots of please do this again next year.... Good gracious it was a good one.
With that, I must go grocery shopping and. Get my work done.
Chalk this one to one seriously scrappy weekend...

Shhhh, it's a very quiet weekend. Hot humid but quiet.
Even princess diva Lira has chosen to spend her time in the ac lol. Smart dog.
I decided it's time to gather, so I checked the black raspberry patch here aND they should pop next week. Then I went to a local u pick Farm around here.  Good thing I did, they have 1 tart cherry tree left.  It's really to bad I had a skirt on, I would have climbed that bad boy
  But I managed 2 lbs of cherries and that will be enough for a round of jam.  I got 1 lb of blueberries, to which I will freeze up, then go back next weekend and add to it.  It was nice being out amount the orchards all by myself.  It's nice just to be out hearing nothing but what's around.  The horses across the way we're having conversations,  birds singing, the rustle of unknown critters in the bush line.  Peaceful it was. Lol, when I got in, the nice woman told me they had checked on me to make sure I was ok.  I told her no worries here, that I was rather used to being it in it.
Talked of putting things up and all that.  She just learned 3 years ago.  I smiled.   
Back to the cabin where the river had a bit of action this week.  It rose 7', then dropped like a rock.  There is a rather huge tree limb sticking out by the sandbar.  It's a fat one.  It will be interesting to see if the 2 blocking us are gone.  I hope so. 
Happy cityits were baking nicely as they canoed by.  One group of men were , oh, drunk or proud, but mostly not impressive.   Lol, I heard a yell of , so ya think I'might a girl!!! I look and there was this grey hair guy resembling Santa Claus in stance,  trunks dropped to his knees arms fully stretched to the sky. Good golly, talk about having the eyeballs burned. 
Just another story in the continuing chapter of tales from the bank side.
Today is Father's Day.  Lira and I got Himself a cherry pie.   Lolol, sounds stupid I know, but he loves cherry pie.  I am going to go to my favorite store, then come back.  He will have a do as you please kind of day with exactly as he pleases.  It's all about him!
And with that, I will have another cup of coffee, walk the diva Princess and continue to continue.
:)

Break time.  Been out since bout 7.  Put in the new walk liners in the main garden.  Little less then 29'.  Supposed to get some storms, so I'll run the tiller flatten it out then let the rain settle it.  That will work,  I have time for planting,  but this year, root and cold crop.  Yea,  I have the little gardens full of tomatoes n onions n green beans and cuss.  Lots of time for broccoli, brussel sprouts, carrots, n peas.
Breaks over,,

Finished planting a bit ago.  Its all in.  Yesterday and today I got in broccoli, brussel sprouts, carrots, peas, radish, jalapenos, sweet bell peppers , lettuce and plopped marigolds in for the skeeters.  Yanked weeds in the other beds and dealt with training cuss to climb,  discovered cut worm sign in my green beans.  Slapped some basil and parsley in.  Now I can rest, well sort of.
Big storms are coming.  They don't sound like fun at all.  But maybe I can get some good storm shots.
Well off to the store.  Dang ran out of coffee lmao.
Have a good day...

My boy that just got his first house, he used 5 gal. buckets for his garden for years.  Having room for a garden was a top priory for picking out a hours.   Now that he has his own place he has put in 6 large raised beds.  He is now putting in a watering system for the lawn and raised beds. The raised beds have been in for two months now.  So he is putting in a system that he can control by phone or timer, as living on the West side of the state they get a lot of rainey days.

Got a bit dicey last night around here.
The domicile lucked out and landed between the monster storms.  The cabin was smack dab in the middle of some pretty hefty supercell that spawned tornados a town away in 1 direction and nasty hail in another.  But it's good.Now river watch starts.  Sure hope it stays in the bank.

So far the river is good.   I don't think it will go over its banks.  Might get close.   
I got rid of the prius today.  Lease was over.  No more of that noise.  The car was a great runner but it's not the car for me.   So I got a 2015 camry le.  Rides a whole heck of a lot better. Quieter, more room and it has a real trunk.  Road noise is almost not there. 
 Good music sound to. For me it's a much,better choice.   
That was my,day....
