Friday Has Arrived.....
The one person that I know that has had to get up earlier than me is the guy in the jet plane. His stream was a welcomed sight and he had just turned it on seconds before I had arrived. Our President shut down our base in the Des Moines area and all out jets were sent to storage in the desert. We only do drones now. This plane still files over from Omaha and does its practice flights over Iowa. Normally there are at least three of them at a time and they make crisscross jet stream patterns. It is such a common sight that we don't really stop to appreciate what is going on up there.
The barberry looks great on the other side of the fence. It makes a great accent color in the garden area. I have the yellow green barberry also but it needs to be move out into the sun as it is one third in size.
There are a few artist from the twenties that painted Minnesota scenes with trees of special shapes. I just notice recently that they generally are painting sycamore trees in their paintings. If they are not them, it is the style of tree that they are projecting in their scenes. The trees are beauties and I really am glad they are in the neighborhood. I really like the large leaves but the woman in the green house does not.
I saw the perfect photos of these trees the other day and I didn't get it captured. The sun caused a glow on the trees which made them very magical. When the leaves are fully out the whole set of trees will look differently.
I didn't have the heart to throw away a knife set nor this grinder. We have an electric grinder but this is an antique. This type of food grinder is all my mom ever had to grind meat or fruit. It was an older one than this one. This looks modern compared to ours. The trick was to find a wooden chair or a counter that the clamp would fit for tightening before use. I think we had one wooded chair that it worked on best.
We are off today to help take Della's friend to the bank and shopping. She cancelled her radiation treatment for the day and wanted us to take her some places. We will have to work on some incentives to get her to quit the skipping of the treatments. She has daily small doses of radiation for 6 weeks or more. We will find a good place to eat today and help her get the things done that she wishes.
I did get things done yesterday including planting morning glories and sunflowers. I have zinnias yet to plant. I am getting the patio cleared of junk(unnecssery things) and hopefully will have things looking better out there. I wish everyone to have a good day today. Thanks for checking in at my blog.
