Well, once the delivery guys got everything set up yesterday, I looked at DH and said, "Where do you want to go out to eat? I haven't the vaguest idea how to operate this thing!" LOL.
We went to Applebee's. We only go there about once a year because I have never had a meal at Applebee's that I've liked--until last night. Oh my, I loved my meal! Every bite was super delish. I just had Caesar salad, some kind of lime chicken, and a key lime dessert cup. Prior to dinner, I had an apple martini to celebrate the new stove (and mattress)..........I wonder if that martini twisted my taste buds or something.....anyway, I can't wait to go back there!
I was outside at 6:30 a.m. this morning moving the Red Carpet Lilies. I clustered them in this area of the path. I also brought in a couple of yellow daylilies, of which I have just forgotten the name. You all know them, they are the ones that rebloom and are quite popular.
Up front there are some taller red/orange Asiatics that are almost the same color, so they lead the eye to these reds at a lower level.
I already had a little cluster of them on the opposite side of the path, so now I think everything ties in nicely and I am very happy to have done the little bit of extra work this morning.
After finishing the lilies, I moved to the other side of the Arbor Gardens and started digging out plants so that we could put in a path. I removed about three wheelbarrow loads and then DH came out to provide some added muscle.
Last night after the delightful Applebee's outing,we stopped at Home Depot and bought 20 16-inch stone pavers. You might remember that I mentioned that I have looked for two years to get more of the round stone pavers to match the other side. They are nowhere to be found in my town, so I decided I needed to get this done now and bought square stone pavers. They weigh 34 lbs. each, so I was so happy that DH agreed to help.
Now that my coffee break is over, I will go back out and pretty it up a bit. It's going to rain most of the day today, so I want to get the outside work done first, then I will go inside and figure out how to use the new stove.
