An All-Over-the-Place Song-ography

5 May

I was anxious to get some of my garden in over the weekend, so I burned the leftover brush that was out there.


I was going to plant my garlic and then see if I could get my uncle to come till the rest of it with his big tiller.  But my tiller wasn’t working.


Then the rain came.  I haven’t made any progress other than getting it burned.  I’m extra anxious to get my garden going because I didn’t get to have one last year with my foot surgery.  I’m almost out of several things. The most distressing to me is the roasted tomato sauce.


I only have three jars left.  While I would have enjoyed sitting out on the deck eating at my little bistro table this evening, two things kept me from doing it.  First, it’s still raining.



And second, Stella.  Whenever I sit outside, she promptly comes up and puts her big nose under my elbow and not-so-gently tosses it up to let me know that she really wants me to pet her.  If I tried eating out there, I’d end up throwing a meatball over my head.


I guess that means I’ll stick with sitting at the coffee table and watching the news while I check my e-mail.  The joys of being single!

Sharing with Song-ography where this week’s song is Billy Joel’s Scenes from an Italian Restaurant.

      I know I’d never get a bite to eat. She really sends my whole arm flying with that big nose.

      Thanks. We’re so windy here, I have a hard time finding a good still time to burn.

      I hate that I don’t have enough to last me until my garden is planted and I can can some more this summer.

      Well, I might confess that the drink is iced tea, but my ice melted.
