Menu Week Ending: July 2, 2011

This week, the newlyweds come home. Organizing wedding gifts in her small kitchen and getting the list completed for thank you notes. 
I have started a complete remodel of my office. I will paint half of the office this week and the other half next week. I will order furniture for the office after it has been painted. Some of the existing furniture needs to be painted.

Lastly, the garden is in transition. Peas and beans are done. Two beds will need to be rototiled and start zinnias and sugar pumpkins.  Two weeks ago the yard, the garden, the flower beds were perfect. Today, they all need work. After our terrible storms, the clean-up is almost complete. But life goes on, weeds find their way into the beds, flowers need dead-heading, roses need to be sprayed, and the dang Bermuda grass will not stay out of my garden.
