    I didn’t know that Bluestone used recyclable material.

    Removed and discarded the thick, crooked bases of my cacti. I read that you can cut off the tops, let the cut dry, then replant them. I am going to try this.

    DH has a very tall, ungainly cacti that has lived here for 32 years and pre-dates me because it lived with DH before I entered the picture. It grows in a 3” pot and is 42” in height. I do not see how it will survive our move.
    He is going to cut it …perhaps…and try to root it.

    See this thing?

    We are getting ready to have our second garage sale of the season this weekend. We did an abbreviated one Memorial weekend, but the rain dampened the buz. The second one is more to support a couple of neighbors who have lost spouses recently and are going through things and downsizing. It is a hard thing to do and easier with the support of others. They were tentative with the first one but now feeling better about it and are ready for round two. We will finally be going into summer weather in a big jump this week so I'm really looking forward to the crowds we are used to. We'll put our feet up and have a big BBQ in celebration on the last day.

    Two cardigans have worn out. One is now in my yardwork clothing section and one I threw out.

    Scrappers picked up the pile of metal stuff we put by the curb. All gone and into the recycling stream rather than the waste stream!
