I don't like Mondays...

I planted all four rose bushes yesterday. My timing was perfect...as soon as I finished it started to rain. I have never seen so many big rocks in the ground! I couldn't dig three inches without hitting one. So I was up and down on my knees, digging the rocks out with my hands so that I could dig down a few more inches. This morning my knees hate me, especially my right knee. I think I need to find some kneepads to wear while I'm gardening.

If it isn't nasty every morning this week I will plant some flowers in the barrels after I make the trellis. I need to run by Lowes or Home Depot to find some kind of little fencing to keep the rabbits and squirrels out of the garden once I start planting stuff. I'm still not sure where I am going to put the lilac bushes. I need to do a little more research and find out how much sun they need. I would kinda like to put them in front of the ugly meter that is on the front of the house.

I've been watching CNN all morning while finishing up some paperwork. Depressing. I'll have to see if the TV at school can pick up one of the networks so we can watch the President's address this afternoon. My thoughts and prayers are with everyone who has a loved one on that side of the world.
