I was awakened by the sounds of the emergency sirens going off this morning. No bad weather at the moment so I turn on the tv to find out what's going on. There's another chemical leak at a plant near my area. This is the second chemical related accident in a short time.
I also saw more reports on all the damage done by tornadoes the last couple of days. My heart goes out to those who were affected by the destruction. I pray none of my friends living in those areas are hurt.
Ok, on to more pleasant thoughts. The garden boxes are built, all I need now is the dirt to fill them. Gosh, that's gonna be a lot of dirt. The boxes are 4' X 8' and 12 inches high. Exactly the way I wanted them but..... gosh, where will I get all that dirt to fill them? I had thought I would by some bags from the hardware store or mega store but I'm having second thoughts. That will be a lot of money to pay for dirt. I need to come up with a plan.
These also need to be planted pretty soon. They are blooming already. I'm not exactly sure where to plant them in order to get the most benefit.
A friend brought me more cardboard.... double fluted kind..... which is always a nice gift. Double fluted is hard for me to find. I'll get these cut apart and stored away sometime today before Ladybug arrives.
There's the quilt on the machine I want to work on today.... right after I get back from the doctor's office. So many things to do.... so little time.
