So, I go into the bedroom for something and this is what I see on the bed. My teddies that are usually sitting in a chair are now in this position. I start to laugh and himself comes in and says, "This is how I plan to spend my birthday, me on my back and you rubbing my head." lol His birthday is next month this is why it's on his mind.
This morning I decided to pot up a plant that I had outside in a hanging basket of mixed plants. I was thinking earlier this summer that I might pot it up and try to grow it as a house plant. As it's starting to get colder here now I figured I might as well get it done. I don't know the name of the plant so if anyone can help there I'd appreciate it.
Having put it by itself in a new pot, I saw that the leaves were full of soil as the plant was wet and taking it out of one pot to put in another soil got all over the plant. So, I go inside to get the spray bottle. There was a little water in the bottom of the bottle so I just poured more water in with that. Went outside and sprayed the plant all over to get the soil off. Then I was getting a strong smell of bleach. It hit me, the last time I used the bottle was to spray the plastic chairs with bleach to clean them. So, the liquid in the bottom of the spray bottle was bleach. I immediately got a large container of water and poured over the plant. Will it live...I don't know. I have learned a lesson though. Check to see what's in a bottle before using it.
That's how my day started! It's overcast and wet but not as cool as yesterday. I had planned on making some cinnamon buns this morning but only have one egg and I need three. The chickens have hardly been laying at all. I don't know what the problem is. They are only about 3 years old and nothing has changed in their lives. Last year I was getting so many eggs that I was looking for people to give them to at times. So I'm hoping for two more eggs today and have already been out to give the chickens a good talking to, lol.
I hear that hurricane Bill is going to make it's way up the Eastern Seaboard. They figure Nova Scotia will be hit. They haven't mentioned us yet but these things are usually weakened by the time they arrive here.
