well perhaps it was wrong at one time, because I had it wrong in my first post in here as well...but as far as I can tell all is correct now.

I will bid everyone Sweet Dreams now--sleep well..

Hi all, DH has to make a run for supplies this morning so I get to follow, only so that I can go to the bank and give the government all our extra money for land taxes. egad

Oh well, at least I get to pick up my seed potatoes today.

I didn't get the kind I wanted...almost every store was out of seed potatoes, even the coop feed store. I found one store that had one bag of red left and three bags of russets, thankfully I only needed two bags but they are a different variety than what I usually get. This pandemic has everyone trying to grow gardens....I hope they fair out well.

The line ups to get in places was ridiculous. I didn't go to any big stores....it's not worth the trouble.

Well, at least you got potatoes to plant...I consider that a win !

Oh my about the stores...does one have to stay 6 ft apart while in line ???

I have only been out twice...once to lowes, and it was so early, no one was around much...and to a curb side pick up to get groceries..so I have yet to experience lines....oh my ! I am not looking forward to that...

Good afternoon. I am late again today. No particular reason.
Land taxes. I just did that last month. On the other hand, seed potatoes! Yay!
I would like to say that if you have vote by mail options apply to do that soon. Voting in November could get tricky. If half or more of the country is still holed up (or again) you may not want to go wait in lines. And a lot of polling places might be closed for lack of willing workers so they will condense the ones they can open. With fewer poll workers and long, long lines of voters.
That's what happened in Wisconsin for their primaries a month or so ago. A lot of their polls weren't open due to staffing issues. So the ones that were open were crowded with 3 or more hour waits. Last count I heard was 57 Covid cases among voters and staffers and rising. Then it fell off my news. .
So do this if you can.

I hope everyone can vote my mail Tina.

Yes, there are only so many people allowed in a store at a time(usually 10) so all the rest must wait outside 6 ft apart until it is your turn. I have no desire to wait over an hour to go to a big store. The line up was as long as the parking lot.

Tina, that was for everything. I had to wait in line to go to the bank(I had checks that had to be cashed that were here for months), then wait to pick up my door, then wait to get the potato starts. It took longer to wait in line then to get the actual shopping done. It took 4 hours to get less than an hour of picking up items. I gave up....the necessities were bought and the rest can wait.

People were out as a family with kids, no gloves, masks or anything...I was shocked.

We went to Lowe's today. Rod needed some supplies and so I went flower shopping.

Some people had on masks including us, but many families were out just enjoying the day. And some were social distancing and some were not. I got too close to someone at one point but it was unavoidable. There were none of the flowers I wanted..lady said they were just coming in...and all of the herbs I wanted were gone. So glad to be home and showered. I do have the last of my soil though.

I will let things sit until tomorrow and then put them out.

Glad you got the soil...sorry you'll have to make another trip for flowers though.

Made and painted my new bird house grin

Pictures or it didn't happen. Really, I'd like to see your birdhouse.
I was thinking of getting out to my restaurant supply place soon but the more I hear the stories of shopping trials from online friends the less fun it sounds. I think I will just continue on at home and sort through my food stores here.
My county dropped the requirements for masks. So it's optional. But still required for many stores. They would have to make masks against the law for me not to wear one. And then I won't go out at all.

What does Tangela say about restrictions where you live, Tina ?..a safe trip out might be good for you.

Yes, I would like to see photos as well, Sunny.

I will have to see about photos myself...perhaps I can try to post some after I plant what I had bought today.

Yup, photos tomorrow. I put it on an old 4X4 post...it should be taller but it was all that I had to use. Oh well, once I get flowers in it...it will look better.

I am heading out to my local grocery store tomorrow....the delivery system is getting ridiculous with swapping all name brand for store brand and veggies and fruit that go bad in a day or two. We have no active cases in our province and are over two weeks with no new cases but I'll still cover and glove up.

Tina, even a drive around town might be a good break for you...or get Tangela to make the run for you.

My restaurant supply store is where I buy things like 20# bags of sugar and large supplies of trash bags and paper plates, etc. I haven't been for a couple of years now as it is out of my way since I don't have to drive Teddy to school anymore. They were busy rearranging their store when I last went in so I couldn't find everything I wanted that trip.
I am kind of eager to see how the pandemic has affected them. But it may be kind of disheartening to find them depleted too.If I go, I will go with Tangela for sure.
But I am not itching to go out in general. I mostly want to go and show Tangela what I want there.

If you can go out safely, Tina, I think you might be happy you did. I know I was...even if I felt the need to shower and wash my clothes when I came home...both times.

I have to head out to get groceries when DH gets home from the barn. He got laid off from his job last Friday...he is waiting on a call for another job any day now.

I'll take pics of the few things blooming and the birdhouse when I get home flwr

DH has plenty of farm work until the next job starts in a week thumbup

Grocery shopping was a headache but it was cheaper since I found out if you put substitutions allowed....he is putting the more expensive stuff in.

This is the birdhouse, painted and glazed. You can put flowers in on either side.

Beautiful bird house/planterSunny.! Seeing it makes me smile. Pretty colors as well.

Sounds like the grocery store is taking advantage of it's customers. Glad you were able to go out and get your own groceries.

Sounds like with the rains that are predicted we may do our grilling in Honor of Memorial day on Saturday instead of Monday...

Nice birdhouse/planter, Sunny. Now I want to see it planted. I cannot grow anything like that in my area unless I could water it three or more times a day. Plants would fry.

Yup, you'll see it planted in a few weeks Tina, it gets morning sun then late afternoon shade in that corner.....every shrub that I've planted in that spot gets destroyed from shoveling the roof off, even with bracing. So from now on a birdhouse will be put out from spring to Fall.

Grill some for me Junie.

You can come too..have Sunny go by and pick you and Teddy up on her way over. The more the merrier..we will sit 6 ft apart from each other.

I am going to read, so I will say goodnight now...see everyone tomorrow. Nite nite.

It would take me a week or better to drive there. And I'm not getting on a plane or train in the foreseeable future. But it sounds good.

After two weeks of no Covid cases we have one. A 6 yr old boy who started back at a day care on Monday.....and so it goes. There is going to be a lot of local cases once again(the child lives a 15 minute drive from DD's).

We are planting a field of oats today...it will be a busy but productive day. thumbup

Good morning.

Are the oats to sell, or for food for your animals, Sunny? I too hope your field does well.
