Today, after months of waiting, I had an appointment with a cardiologist. I am very relieved to say that surgery to replace my defective aortic valve, does not have to be done anytime soon. I have to improve my blood pressure a bit, but that's it for now. I am ecstatic!!! Now...as if that wasn't enough good in one day...we took a side trip to Lee Valley. I went crazy. I had a list. Should I really bore you with the list? Okay, okay. Here we go. I saved and treated myself to: deep seed starter trays, a heat mat, red plastic for under the tomatoes, a stainless steel canning funnel, floating row cover (remay type cloth), plastic for hoop house, caps for bamboo canes (4.50 to save an eye, sounds like a good deal to me), a muddler for mojitos, a book holder for holding my ipad which I use as a cookbook among other things, and a 21 LED flashlight for nighttime strolls to the greenhouse. I recommend the flashlight. It is super bright, small and quite a lovely little thing.
We are having a huge wind storm tonight. I love storms. I went out and put the unplanted raspberry in a more sheltered area. It is bloody cold out there tonight.
So that was my very awesome day.
We love Lee Valley too! My hubby drolls over the woodworking tools, etc as much as we both do in the garden area.
WOW! A good day, great news, new toys & I can feel your BIG SMILE on your face! xx
Good for you on treating yourself. We need to do that often!
Thank you for sharing your awesome day..I could feel the joy!!! Glad you got all that gear. As for the caps for bamboo canes, if I didn't have my specs on one day in the garden to keep a bamboo pole from going right into my eye, I'd be blind today...the covers are a wonderful idea! Glad you scored the remay and...I've always wanted one of those funnels. ;-)
Thank you everyone. It was an awesome day. Thank you for sharing it with me. Bloggers are the best!!!
It's good to know that you don't have to do surgery any time soon. All the best with your health. Hahaha...I also behave like a kid in the candy store whenever I visit garden centers but then I end up not buying anything.
