I took full advantage of a warm day and accomplished a lot. First on the agenda was my mom's birthday. She turned 82 today, so we had fish at my brother's for lunch. After lunch my brother and I pruned the plum trees and planted 25 pounds of red seed potatoes....that's four long rows for all you city slickers. When we finished I helped Mom change the sheets on their beds since her maid quit a couple of weeks ago. Mom really needs help badly, but we can't find anyone to do it. After I finished there, I came home and have planted about 40 of the 90 gladiolus bulbs I bought. Right now, I am baking cookies so I can take some warm cookies down to my aunt who is in the assisted living facility right close to me. I knew I was tired!
