It was a beautiful day here finally. Not overly warm-maybe 65, but at last there was NO WIND!! We have had gale force winds for days and my poor plants have taken a beating; the veggies look wilted-or actually, sideways. But today was awesome. Got Hermit Crab up and her and I went to church. I know, not a big deal, but with our work schedule we rarely get there anymore. It was such a great sermon and great songs. After feeling such joy we decided to go get more things for the yard to get ready for her party. Joy ended soon after. She had to do all the lifting since I have the restrictions for another week and a half. Hmmm, maybe joy had returned? No lifting-bonus! We picked up some more veggies for the garden. My seeds didn't sprout so well this year, so went and bought some cukes, zucchini and cantalope. I told Hermit Crab that the last time we grew melons they ended up the size of a softball and hard as rocks. She was persistant so they came home with us. We also bought a couple of pavers for in front of our shed. I added a window box and some flowers-thought it would be a fun addition to the back yard, kind of brighten it up where it looks a little junky. She also had to help Dude with the pavers he got for a little patio outside our back door, plus she planted 3 trees. I supervised Dude as he planted some shrubs next to the barn in his little garden he created with his 25 cent retaining wall blocks he picked up. Can't beat making a garden bed for under $20. Dude and I sat down and had a bonfire, roasted some weiners and had a beer. Hmm, still hungry. Ahah! Chicken left over from last night. Okay, it is 10:30 at night. I wasn't up for trying to come up with some kind of fancy left over. Took the easy way out-warmed up the chicken breasts in the oven, made a nice big plate of salad greens, sliced the warm chicken, sprinkled with some nice cheeses and had a terrific salad. Trying to negate the weiners and beer.
Here are a few pics from today:

Mama was busy squaking at us all day.
