Mindless Monday

That's how I feel this Monday morning. Totally mindless. As if my brains were sucked out by a Zombie pretty big mosquito. I'm just going through the motions today. Doing a load of laundry, cleaning the bathroom and picking up fucking dog toys everywhere I go. Sometimes I feel like I have 3 little two and three year old children running around this house in black and white onesies with speech impediments, fighting over toys and who loves mommy more. It's totally crazy.

Well, Mothers day was fun. I did a load of laundry, vacuumed and that was it. I had no energy what so ever after that. I spent the rest of the day with the puppies laying in bed watching really bad TV, which I gave up for a good book. My brother called me to see how I was doing and we chatted it up for a few minutes. Then one of the puppies farted and it pretty much cleared the room. I didn't go back to the bedroom until 8pm.

This morning I ventured out to check on some of the plants in the gardens. Everything is going great guns. The astilbe is coming up fast, but the begonias are slow as hell. I'm wondering if I'll have to write the nursery and ask for replacements. I have an old mock orange tree that I keep scaled down to a bush. It hasn't bloomed and I was wondering if it ever would. Well yesterday I was so surprised to find a few fragrant blooms on the tree. I have been babying that tree since 2 years ago. I've had it for 4 years now. I tried something different that I never heard of before. I poured a whole half liter bottle of club soda into the pot around the trunk about a week ago. Then bang I get flowers from a tree that never produced them in all the 4 years I've had it. It's because the club soda is like a fertilizer. It has natural minerals and phosphorus that plants crave. So this week when David goes shopping I'm going to have him grab up 5 more bottles of the stuff. If you want to try it, make sure it's the no or low salt club soda. This stuff perked up my house plants and that mock orange tree outside. I plan to pour it into my geraniums, begonias, and the astilbe. I'm wondering what it would do to the roses and the morning glories, or even the veggie garden. Hmmmmm.
As you all know by now I have gone to posting when I have the energy. Otherwise, my Wet Dog/Cat Wednesday is usually set up weeks in advance. So Monday is now Mindless Monday. Tuesday is Tickle Me Tuesday. Thursdays and Fridays will be open to whatever crazy shit I want to blog about. I don't know when I will be able to go back to Saturday or Sunday again. Right now it's pretty hard to run a 5 day blog. But I'll try to get back into the swing of things again before Autumn hits.


  1. Lol, I love your blog posts, L. You rock.

  2. Love the "Simplified Blogging" cartoon! Enjoy your gardening. Oh, this comment felt good. I've been holding it in all morning.

  3. Gurl! You know I've been reading everything you write for years now, so yeah, you deserve a break. Especially with the system changes you are going through. Congrats on the orange blossoms! I miss them. Living in Mesa AZ we had orange groves all over the place and the fragrance was divine!

    P.S. Don't push yourself. Five days IS difficult ... <3

  4. Awww the mock orange tree gave you a Mother's Day present!!! I've never heard of using club soda before, usually use epsom salts
