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.
