Good morning. It's quite lovely outside today. The temperature is 70F degrees, but it will get up to around 82 degrees later today. There's a little bit of a breeze so it should be quite comfortable out on the porch.
Yesterday, Pogo and I spent hours out there. First, I took our lunch out there, and when we finished eating I decided to get started on my Donald Trump chia plant. The bust had been soaking in water all the while we had been enjoying our lunch.
Before I got started, Deanne and Janice came by with some groceries they had picked up for me. They had called me before they left to go shopping to see what I might need. That's one less thing that I need to go out to do this week. Thank you, ladies.
Now, back to my Donald Trump planter. I set the bust in a plastic bowl, and set about to get the chia seeds ready. The directions said to mix two teaspoons of the seeds in a quarter cup of water. I mixed all this in another small bowl. After a while, the seeds turned to a gel mix. This is supposed to make it easy to get the seeds to adhere to the bust.
Then I proceeded to put the seed mix on the planter. I tried. Over and over. I tried. As soon as I put the seed mix on the planter, they slid right off. Folks, I had chia seeds everywhere except on the planter bust.
After trying for over an hour, I finally put my fan on low and pointed it at the part of the planter that I was putting the seeds on. The fan helped to cool the mix so that it would stay on the bust. Eventually, I managed to plant a whole head of hair for Mr. Trump. At least I think it will be a whole head of hair. Time will tell.
Now I have to wait a couple of days to water the plant. After that, the seeds will begin to sprout. Well, it may not be the best hairdo, but I tried. This whole project only took me about two hours. Can you imagine? Two hours to paste seeds on a planter?
When the planting was finished, it was time to go inside and start supper. DIL Janet would be coming by after work and I had promised to cook a Kielbasa dinner for us. When fried up with sliced potatoes and green beans, it is quite tasty.
When Janet got here, she had a nice surprise. Over the weekend, she had gone out shopping and bought herself a brand new car. Such a beauty, a sleek little black Hyundai Elantra. Janet, I wish you much happiness and good luck with your new car. After supper, (which was delicious) Janet and I crocheted while we watched TV and chatted. It was a really nice way to end my busy day.
I did my nebulizer meds while I was typing this post, so now Pogo and I can go sit out on the porch for a while. On that happy note, I'll take my leave. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have an awesome day.
Hugs, Edna B.
