Friday and the Cook Out

Today we will not have a cooked lunch. We will be going to John and Leslie's for the cookout and fireworks tonight and I never like to overload my stomach with food twice in one day.

I will probably just have a yogurt at noon.

I got all my housework finished yesterday. I vacuumed the rest of the apartment, fixed creamed peas and chicken over biscuits for lunch and cleaned up the kitchen.

I will need to fix my baked beans. I fixed the potato salad yesterday and put it in Tupperware and in the frig to allow the ingredients to mix throughout.  We are not supposed to be there until 6:00 this evening.   The guys will have spent a small fortune on fireworks and we may or may not stay for that. It doesn't get dark until 9:00 and we are both ready for bed by then.  Getting old is not for sissies. :)

More later....

I got my baked beans done and then I went over to the shopping center and bought some mulch and mulched that new flower bed. When I finished, I heard the mower going and found that Bob was mowing that back yard. I took him over some tea and also alternated mowing with him. We got it finished at least for this week. It looked horrible but the landlady will only have it mowed every other week. 

That's a tragedy. I am used to having it mowed every week and I always mowed my own at least once a week...sometimes even more.

I didn't get the large one mulched because it's so full of flowers.  Maybe this fall after the flowers are finished blooming. I still have some mulch left.

This entire lot used to be a parking lot so you can just dig down a little and run onto gravel.  I am determined to have flowers though.
