Pitiful Pearl’s Random Thoughts

There is nothing remotely interesting about this post, unless you enjoy random thoughts of self-pity .

I am quite simply WORN OUT, or as my mother used to say, worn to a frazzle.

Since a large stack of limestone is still sitting in the driveway, I have decided on a project change.

This mound is now going to become a permanent MONUMENT , exactly where it sits on the side of my driveway.

Convenient, right? I am going to ask my husband to chisel

‘Just Had to Have It’ on one of the slabs.

I think that Chocolate Layered Dessert eventually becomes a depressant and has mind -altering powers.

Yesterday afternoon I sprayed a very common (hint,hint) , miracle working product on my tomatoes and my new hibiscus .They are now shriveled and an odd shade of yellowish gray.

My Cinco de Mayo rose bush, 24 hours after I planted it, has turned to stone.

I POISONED THEM! I should have given THEM Chocolate Layered Dessert.

Aren’t you glad you dropped by?

Oh, Pitiful Pearl you are quite funny! I love the abstract monument idea for your fabulous limestone purchase! Give the hubby a hammer and a chisel and set him free! Thanks for the smile!

Laura, you crack me up. I am happy I dropped in, needed some humor tonight. Jeesh, is it morning already?

Will send the fixer upper fairy your way, she'll try and help you get unfrazzled, she just left my house.

Take care,

Nancy

Good Morning, Laura! Oh dear, one on THOSE days... do you think you could just spray paint them all white and everything will look better...

(I know you will come up with an awesome idea for your limestone. Inspiration sometimes takes time)

You always make me smile with your humor and way with words! LOL! Sounds like something I would do with my plants! I like your quote about a friend by RWE above....you do do that and we so enjoy it too! Be encouraged my friend, this too shall pass!

Debbie said...

See? chocolate IS Evil! Devils food! Have something disgustingly healthy today and turn your luck around.
How could you NOT impulse buy that stone! Get magazines out and look for ideas. Randomly lay them through your yard as a path(you'll have to dig to get them in, this will burn chocolate calories) stack them and make a new garden.

I'm always glad I've stopped by, when I visit you...

blessings and good cheer... Dixie

Bless your heart! I have days like that too. Just think, a new day brings about a fresh outlook. :o) Ok, I keep telling myself that too ... smile! Seriously though, if you sprayed the outer section of the rose bush, could you prune it back some and give it a little extra miracle grow for vitamin? And the stone, that is some gorgeous rock you have there!! It would look so pretty around something like a tree or a little flowering garden. :o)

Hey girl, I have been known to spray my plants as well with stuff and hurt them.
It's ok. that is what home depot is for. I just buy new ones and start over!
As for the limestone, I am sure you will be inspired!

Domestic Designer said...

Oh my! I think today should be a "put up your feet kind of day" for Pitiful Pearl! Have a great day!

Amy said...

Oh, just have more chocolate and buy new plants!

There - a quick fix that is guaranteed to work!

Hope your week progresses along better!

Dirt Princess said...

I start something all the time in my yard, and then think that maybe I am not a sane person. Think it comes with the territory!

Deb said...

it's nice to hear other peoples rants makes you stop and think about yours...

The Muse said...

This Muse has been right where you are...once or twice! LOL....
There is never enough time to do all that I want...and not enough HELP LOL...to help me get all of it done...
So I simply breathe deeply (rant a tad)...then lace up my boots...put on my gloves..and jump right in!

I bet the day will be brighter tomorrow!!

Glenda/MidSouth said...

Sounds like me on some of my projects. Sorry about your plants. I have lost a few pots of flowers this year, and I think it is because of to much rain and not enough sunshine.

Hehe.. this is so kindly hysterical I can't tell you. I planted my queen elizabeth roses on Mother's Day. Today it is pouring an insane amount of water in my yard. I wonder if the queen can survive the wetlands. Oy.. a conundrum I tell you.

trash talk said...

And that is why I am afraid to fertilize! You know you may be onto something with the chocolate feeding...works on me like magic for growing out!

Joy said...

So my mom isn't the only one who is always "worn out". Lord, if I haven't heard that a million times and to think of all the vitamins she takes. haha.
Sorry things are well with the plants. Maybe they will rebound.

Picket said...

OH girl..I think all of blogland can relate to some of that...we see so many inspiring ideas and get all fired up with excitement and get so many projects going and all at once I am like a hot air balloon that someone lets the air out of and it flys out of control and crashes in the bushes! lol lol Don't even get me started on how many plants I have killed! lol I say put your jammies on and get a chocolate bar...tomorrow is another day Scarlett!!!!!
