It's wet outside! What a treat and so unexpected! It may be too wet to cut the grass! Lots of !!! there. Going to have to change some plans for today.
But yesterday, mom and I saw her eye doctor for the monthly shot in her eye followed by a fun run through a fantastic toy store. The store has been in the same family for 62-years and the clerks are fantastic with lots of suggestions and advice. And, they gift wrap for free! We had such fun picking out a special birthday gift for the 5-year old whose birthday party is this afternoon. Michael asked me to find a good face painting kit for all the kids. Done. Klutz makes a fantastic one. Then, we found a battery operated slot cars for 4-7 year-olds. Perfect. He is going to love it.
Later, I also made a huge pot of Barbacoa for Michael to take to the party, too. Just before he leaves this afternoon, I will heat it up, chop the red onion and cilantro for the toppings and send it off.
Back to the gardens. I don't think I will be able to do anything today. Maybe tomorrow. So, it's to the bank and to Safeway for a few things then home. The check book needs to be balance, end-of-month bills need to be paid and I have a stack of things to be files. And the laundry! Lots of laundry! A rather quiet day.
It's not such a quiet day for people on the other side of the pass. Around 10PM last night, a truck hit a power pole near some freeway construction just south of the airport and closed the freeway. Power lines down over all lanes. Live power lines. It is still closed. It is going to be a mess for anyone trying to get to or from the airport or the city. Gratefully, we are not going anywhere near that part of the freeway all weekend!
