Yesterday was not as productive as I had hoped. I did plant some more stonecrop out front, and repotted a hydrangea -- I had given the latter to Mom from Mother's Day and it was not doing well in the original container and medium, so she regifted it back to me and we'll see if more room, better dirt and direct sunlight will help. It appeared to be trying when I moved it.
Tam and I ran by the big home improvement store and the five-and-dime (that's $5.10, these days!) for various household items, then had a quick early supper or late lunch at the Broad Ripple Brewpub, which I had forgotten was one of the few places where they still make coleslaw worth eating. I had that and a "Scotch Egg Burger," which is okay (hamburger and sausage, dipped in egg wash and bread crumbs in the manner of a Scotch Egg). I don't know if it was the weather, the food or what, but once we were back home, I laid down and fell asleep for several hours.
I've been having a lot of allergy-type sinus congestion of late and that probably contributed.
The only other thing I managed to get done was to clean out the inside of the wooden box for my Yankee #106 "Radio Tools" with mineral spirits. Progress!
