How long do you think this will take me? Do you ever have what seems like too many things to do and it's hard to prioritize and everything becomes so chaotic? You don't know where to start? So, I wonder how long this will take because this is only the little incidental chores that I really thought I should get done today. I haven't even brought up the bigger things like building a flag stone patio and water fall. LOL. So, I am procrastinating by hanging out online. Smart, huh? Who wants to help me? Do you make lists? What is on your list today? But first, give me some advice on how to get started. What should I do first? Should this be able to be done in one day? Or two? Things to do: 1) plant new snapdragons and marigolds and decide where to put those two heather plants. Do something about drab looking hanging baskets. Maybe get more impatiens to replace spent perennials. (note to self: Do not plant short blooming perennials in hanging baskets in the future.) 2) dead-head all spent flowers front and back yard 3) spread some top soil over area of lawn that Andrew made dents in from driving the Kuboda over. Grade dented areas. Put down grass seed and peat moss in bare spots. 4) Put some grass fertilizer on spinach and other anemic looking plants. Put a little more lime on Lilac bush and fertilize evergreens. Put a little aluminium sulfate on Hydrangea bushes. 5) Go to Home Depot or Lowes: Buy more Miracle Grow (2 - 3 boxes) Return time release crap that doesn't work worth a dang. Buy aluminium sulfate Buy small stepping stones for little path through garden Buy some more Zinnias and some Allysum or Lobelia to put around Zinnias and marigolds. Buy a few Geraniums or something else to put along east fence line in back. Figure out something to plant outside of fence on other side of gate...maybe more sweet peas like other side? Should I buy new hoses or fix old leaking ones? 6) Go to Benjamin Moore. Buy sample size of stain for fence and try on inconspicuous area first. 7)Put post caps on fence if it is dry out today 6)Knock down wasp nest that I sprayed the other day 7) Check to see if sweet peas are still alive after hitting them with wasp spray too. 8) Sharpen lawn mower blade that I ruined running over metal thing. Put new oil in. Mow back yard. 9)Cut out the biggest, baddest brown spots from dog pee and re-plant. Dig out weeds with a screw driver or other implement. Fertilize, water and next day spray fungicide on lawn to kill red thread. (or what I think is red thread) 10) Spread top soil over crummy areas of back lawn, scratch up hard soil areas, and throw more grass seed in bare spots. 11) Move that pink perennial thing somewhere else so heather can go in that spot. 11) Run dishwasher 12)Take Jose` for a walk. 13) Don't get too tired to bbq chicken. It needs to be cooked today! Or tomorrow. 14) Oh! Don't forget to pay those bills that are due in short while.
