Well, the paving guy never showed up and never called to say he couldn't come - I HATE it when people do that.

I finally got over my sickness, and am now taking care of my sick cat. He had his surgery two weeks ago, and still needs lots of care and follow up visits. I'm taking him to get his staples out on Thursday.

It's the end of the quarter this week, so hubby will be working insane overtime. Since he'll be working so hard, I'm going to make myself work just as hard. Tonight, I'll do the grocery shopping (which we usually do together) and go to the library. I have clothes to put away, and lots of ironing to do.

For the rest of the week, my goals are to 1) clean the house 2) prime and paint the new trim we bought for the kitchen, and 3) prime and paint the siding we have for the front porch. We need to get that installed before the plants (including thorny roses) grow tall enough to hinder putting the siding up.
I'll have to work every night on this, but it will be worth it! I can set up sawhorses in the basement so he won't know about it. I'll surprise him at the end of the week!

We stained the fence last weekend to maintain it. The people we bought our house from put it up, but never sealed it so it was weathering pretty badly.
We made a vegetable bed from landscaping timber ourselves. Also bought some wall planters to hang on the fence for more greenery at the eye level, and transplanted my strawberries in them. They are doing quite well. I started seeds last weekend to for vegetables and flowers. Better late than never! The radishes are already sprouting.
