Yesterday I was back at school. It was the first day for many schools in the Baltimore area, but we don’t start until Monday. Tomorrow is an open house day, then Monday we start with a half day of classes. I’m glad to have some days to work. I’m not ready. After the weekend, I should be in good shape.
When I got home, I felt like I should get a little more done on my porch. I painted the columns some more. I got all but one finished. The one left is kind of tricky because there’s a bush in the way. I didn’t want to problem-solve, so I decided not to do it.
I still had a little energy left after painting, so I trimmed the tree in front of my house. I’ve been letting it grow over the sidewalk to shade the passers-by, but it was getting too low. I didn’t want a twig to poke somebody in the eye. Time for a trim.
When I got back inside, I turned on the TV. I was reading the TV guide, and was so excited to see that there was a show called “Epic Houseplants”. What? An actual show about gardening? I hadn’t seen such a thing since the early days of HGTV. No one does gardening shows anymore. And what a cool name! Epic Houseplants! Awesome!
Dang. It said “Epic Housboats”. It wasn’t a show about houseplants. I turned the channel and watched the end of X-men instead.
