[gardeners] Tuesday not in the garden

Got up at 0530 this morning to find a heavy frost on everything. Thermometer said 22F at 0600,
running close to 60F right now. Had to run the a/c on the car coming back from a meeting. Sure wish
this weather would straighten up. In a normal year I would have planted the main garden about 02/20
or even earlier. This year the ground is still way too cold.

Still don't have a kitchen but do have lots of garage storage now. The stress of fighting with Home
Depot is making me go hypoglycemic in the early morning hours. Have been sitting around meditating
most of this morning, makes more sense than going postal at Home Depot. They got a deadline
yesterday, in writing, certified mail, from my attorney. Either I have a functional kitchen by
03/12/02 or someone's gonna get their butt sued.

Moral - if you do business with a nationwide chain be sure they have the new kitchen stuff on site
before you let them tear out the old kitchen. Live and learn I reckon.

Still, you gotta admit that life is good.
