an oops kind of a day...

got up to this this morning...
someone, not mentioning any names...
but this has Lester written all over it...
toppled the bird bath...
and no one is going to accuse me of having dirty birds...

got up and just headed out...
no shower, no make up...
in my jammie pants and all...

because the dew point is in the 70s for a few days...
and the temps are high enough to make it miserable...

so, while Craig was hunting down some broken bricks...
you know I keep everything cuz you just might need it...
I grabbed some shots...

and dead headed the roses...
all the while the birds are totally ticked off...
because we disturbed their breakfast time...

but it was worth it...

Craig had today off, but we didn't get much done at all...

he did find some brick pieces and we filled the pot the bird feeder sits on...

got it all moved back into place and he hauled a bucket of water out here to fill it up...

nice and clean...
probably not for long...
but for now the oops is fixed...

the autumn clematis is filling in around the bike...

and the lilies are blooming out here now...

not having very good days lately...
and not sure I don't have a bug and its not all fibro flaring...

could be a little of both...

we have more things to move in here later...

it just takes time...
and gardening is never ending...

took several naps today and even read a book...
not a bad book, either...
a smut book...
its what the guys call romance novels...
'Sleepless in Scotland' by Karen Hawkins...
I liked it...
been staying off of the internet...
just maybe bored with it...
taking most of my energy to just get through the day...
and sleeping at night for a change...
sleeping a lot for me...

they were just getting to the truck late this afternoon...
so have no idea what's wrong or how much...
hoping they call before lunch tomorrow...
its really hard to plan rides for the guys when we have no clue...
Craig works tomorrow so is hitching a ride with a friend...
and hoping he will be driving the truck home...
its less than a block from where he will be and he can walk there to get it...
;0)
I sure hope y'all are having good days...
and if its nasty there, that you are staying inside most of the time...
working outside early and late...
walking when the sun goes down...
;0)

Good that Craig can pick up the truck, when it is ready, and drive it home. Hope it is a cheap fix. Miserable here, even this early, in the morning.
Your flowers are pretty, and Lester likes to play, lol.

Tete, I will return later to see if I missed any of your postings, as I love your blog. I think the yard is beautiful , your hard work is showing. I am making sure the birdbaths have water, because it's hot for the little birdies . Praying for a cheap and proper fix on the truck. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

Your flowers are looking wonderful! I know what you mean about the hot weather....makes me tired just thinking of going outside. Was it just a few months ago that it was so cold?...I try to get out and keep up but I think I'm losing the battle. I hope you are feeling better soon...I always like to keep up with what you are up to...:)

oh-those-pink-lilies!!!!!!! oh they take my breath away.

don't usually like lilies, because they are usually orange.

but yours are amazing!!!!!!!!!!!

please keep resting. that's best for whatever ails ya'. and please get feeling better.

stay off the net, if you feel like it. we all need to "listen to our gut instinct" as the old saying goes.

gentle hugs,
tessa~
