9. June, 2006 - busy weekend

It’s been a busy week around here. I spent most of the evenings this week playing with plants. And sprinklers. And mulch. But the landscaping out front is in pretty good condition for the summer, and as long as I remember to turn on the hose periodically (and move it before mowing the lawn), I should be in good shape there. Tomatoes and peppers are in the vegetable garden, and there are sprinklers and mulch for that in the garage, but I have no idea when I’ll get that set up. The plan was to do that yesterday evening, but I just collapsed on the couch for an hour before going to bed early, instead.

Maybe I’ll get to it on Sunday evening. You see, this is another busy summer weekend. The Saints are back in town after a long road-trip, and I’ll be spending some time in St. Paul this weekend. Plus there’s a trip to Mom’s and other miscellany. After losing most of my couch-time during the week to gardening, I’m almost hoping tonight’s game will be a rain-out, so I can reacquaint my couch cushions with my backside. But it’s very likely I’ll be in St. Paul.

Had another Mark Stenglein sighting last night. We were both at UPS waiting for packages. Weird. I don’t think I’d ever seen the guy in person before, but suddenly twice in one week he’s been somewhere I was. It’s almost like a politician was trying to insinuate himself into my consciousness. How weird is that?

And I think that’s going to do it for the week. I’ve got to go pack the cooler full of beer and food for tonight’s game, haul it out to the truck, and then head off to work for the day. Maybe I’ll have some neat rain and rainbow pictures from the game, but for now, I’ll leave you with one from three weeks ago. Have a swell weekend, and I’ll probably see you on Monday with tales of how little I did during my busy weekend.
