Jon! Yard! 4.4.19

Tim A. Cummins @ 9:25 pm  

Still collecting data about sleeping. I find it fascinating.

Starting my day off with Brain Training has also been a good investment.

Then into Spanish!

Started out pretty cool. Turned out to be a beautiful day!

Got me some new shoes! I used my last pair almost exactly on year to the day! My old ones now become my work shoes.

This is my coffee making area. The tiki cup I’ve had since I was a boy. It’s from my grandparents who lived in Laredo, Texas. Makes me think of them every morning.

I normally record Verbal Surgery in the morning, but I didn’t have quite enough time to do that, so I had a fun chat with my buddy Bob Burns in Scotland! He’s always a blessing and super funny.

Have you ever heard of lucid dreaming? It’s when you become aware that you’re dreaming while you’re in a dream. Bob is quite a source of knowledge about that. We had an interesting conversation about how to develop that skill. Jesse is also good at it and has a few books in his library that I will also be looking at.

Had a fun lunch with my good friend Jon Paul. I’ve been working with his wife, Linda about some pain issues. Sadly, she had a big fall and got kind of beat up. I didn’t get to pray with her today, she’s on pain meds and was sleeping.

Went to Walmart to pick up some groceries and supplies for another plant project. I’m interested in growing Wisteria vines. I’ve been doing some research on it and have done a recon on areas that have plants that I could take cuttings from. Today, I got potting soil, some dowels and some growth hormone for root stimulation. I have about eight small pots that I’ll start the shoots from.

I’m also thinking about using the blue plastic tubs for growing bedding plants in. I think that will be better than trying to put soil in such a large area.
I also bought some plastic flowers that I thought might be fun to also “plant” in my front area near my door.

As I was trimming bushes yesterday, I noticed this fungus growing on some of my shrubs.

I already had fungicide in my arsenal of plant stuff, from when the Pink Magnolias had a fungus. After spraying them a few times they are completely healthy. I gave the shrubs the same treatment.

I was super careful with the fungicide. I wore glasses and a bandana around my nose and mouth plus used rubber gloves.
After that mission was accomplished, I got the lawn mower out. But before I fired that up I put in my hearing protection. It’s a special type of wax that is normally used for swimming. It’s kind of dirty now, but still works fine.

I’d done almost all the front yard, but had the side piece to finish up.

I raked a lot of the mulched up leaves and put it in my back recycle area.

Everything looks SO much better!

Then I got the weed whacker out.

Unloaded all the materials for my Wisteria project.

Final piece is to blow the area off.

I track everything with Runkeeper.

Helped Jesse get his taxes done. Took about an hour and a half to do his personal taxes.
