The timer I bought from Amazon doesn’t work. They’re allowing us to send it back even though the timeframe for returns is over. The timer in the front works great. Ron boxed up the other one and brought it to UPS.
I picked up herbs at Sprout Farm and had a brief visit with Phyllis yesterday.
Removed dead material and transplanted over the past couple of days. Cleaned out the herb and the little gardens.
Paid bills yesterday and a bit of troubleshooting with NEPS.
Made onion soup and instant chocolate coconut pudding. The onion soup was very good, will make it again.
I closed Robert’s custodial account and transferred the funds to his checking account. He took me to lunch afterwards!
I met with a biologist/hunter in the morning and with the Barnstable Republican Town Committee in the evening. Good presentation on how the Sheriff’s department works with ICE. Quick supper at Panera, and it wasn’t at all good.
The biologist/hunter burst into laughter when I shared my low opinion of a person who did me in professionally. Evidently I am not alone; far from it.
Festooned the far garden stakes with tennis balls.
I solved a vexing problem for NEPS. Of course, there are more to be solved. I hate that application.
Today, I transplanted the Kousa dogwood. Much more work than I anticipated. I broke off a couple of big roots, which is horrible.
Ron dug up a couple of unwanted shrubs at the top of the U. I dugout grass from the bed next to the back deck.
I fed the peonies with triple phosphate.
My truck had exhaust-related engine lights on. Brought it to Midas; Ryan suggested “Guaranteed to Pass” to clean the cat first. Picked up a bottle at Auto Zone; cool cashier! Filled the tank and the additive at Cumby.
Ron had come to Falmouth to drive me home, which turned out not to be necessary.
Turns out, the trip wasn’t wholly a lost cause for him: I talked him into a sundae at Friendly’s, and while I was at Cumby’s, he shopped at Job Lot and the Italian bakery and brought home cannoli.
It’s all a blur after that. I fixed a problem for the school admin site and talked with a recruiter about a job that might either be remote or in Renton. Got an email invite to interview for a job in Falmouth.
We skipped town meeting and fortunately, our votes weren’t needed for the articles that interested us.
