“I take care of my flowers and my cats. And enjoy food. And that’s living.”

We’re back to a chilly, damp day. Gracie is already sleeping on the couch, on the lower berth, the cushions, while  Fern has the upper berth, the top of the couch, for her nap. Yesterday I managed to buy a new tire for the car and new speakers for the computer. After I got the tire, I decided to meander and go down cape on Route 28 and sight-see a bit on my way to buy the speakers. During my wanderings, I happened to find a store I’d never seen before so I stopped to do a bit of shopping. Not a thing I bought is useful, but I figured I deserved everything. The last few days haven’t been memorable.

My peas are beginning to show a bit of greenery above the ground. I noticed them when I watered the new raised bed in the backyard yesterday. My herb garden has been around a long time, and I’ve always had tomatoes in pots on the deck, but the peas are my very first from seed vegetables. I felt like a real farmer of sorts when I saw the shoots yesterday.

I had an early morning meeting today, but that completes my entire schedule for the day though I really do need some groceries. I figure I’ll read, take a little nap then drag myself to Stop and Shop. Tomorrow is dump day. We couldn’t go Saturday or Sunday as I forgot to get the new sticker, and the dump is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays. Ah well, such is life.

I’m not complaining mind you, but every now and then I need to grouse. It keeps me on an even keel.

    Tonight, John Henry and his Fenway Sports Group will be staring at Liverpool FC as they host their last home game to the same Chelsea that beat them in the FA Cup Final on Saturday. Having entrusted $180M in transfer fees to Damien Comelli (fired) and Manager Kenny Daglish, JWH has seen only one league win in 2012 and a storied club in decline to mid table mediocrity.
    Daglish has to submit a written report at the end of the season.

    Foreign ownership is not without its pitfalls. As the India based super chicken group Venkys, which purchased Blackburn Rovers, found out last night as BRFC were relegated from the Premier League. The cost ? About $60M next year. The well plucked Blackburn faithful let a chicken loose on the field which was ultimately captured “There’s a chicken on the pitch” they chanted, followed by “We want our chicken back” and, inevitably “we want our club back”.

    Kat you can grouse, the Venkys can chicken and a whole community has to deal with loss this morning.

      My Dear Hedley,
      John Henry has also seen a decline in his baseball team. The papers here attribute it to excessive interest in his football team.

      I believe that is a rooster, not a chicken, but I did like the “well plucked,” nicely done.

      My Dear Hedley,
      I watched a couple of times-highly entertaining!

        The chicken rules.
        According to the Daily Mail, there was a test run in the pub and then the chicken was smuggled in to Ewood Park under the jacket of a twenty three year old.

    I’m doing tomatoes only this year as we put the house up for sale and it’s way too much to care for a full garden. So my lawn guy reseeded it and all but the back patch is now nice green grass. We are thinking sizing down to a condo while the prices are low.

      I always do herbs but this is my first foray into peas. I would think tomatoes would be enough-nothing tastier than tomatoes from your own garden!

    I’ve started my vegetable garden here in the kitchen, it’s still way to cold to start outdoors. We had 25 here yesterday morning. But beans, squash and sugar melons shows above the soil now 🙂

    It rained all day here today but it was a gentle summer rain even if we only have spring here still 🙂

    Why do You need a sticker? We are not allowed to take our trash to the dump ourselves so I’m not sure what You mean 🙂

    Have a great day!

      You have to pay to use the dump. You buy the sticker which is good for a year and then you put it on the windshield as proof you have paid the yearly fee. I got a dump and a beach sticker at the town hall today and the total was $120.00

      It has rained all day today, but it wasn’t ever a gentle rain. At times it poured.

      We won’t have another frost so it is safe to plant.
