At Risk List


I have two projects at the top of my list.

Project I

1.  Pull out step ladder that has seen better days.

2.  Ask husband to ‘spot’ me while I am on ladder under outside trellis.

3.  Ignore mumbling sounds from below about projects

during sports events on television.

4.  Grab bougainvillea branches (full of thorns)

and attach them to the trellis above.

5.  Take a break because my arms hurt.

6.  Maintain balance on ladder , ignoring continued mumbling below.

7.  Tie branches to trellis with fishing line to train the


8. While fumbling with thorny branches,

feel suspicious nudge.

Is he trying to push me off the ladder?

9.  Ask spotter husband how it looks.


Project II

1.  Put on gas mask.

2.  Take chemical bleaching concoction I have mixed out to

limestone patio- that has been neglected all winter.

3.  Spray patio.

4.  Enter house and pass out on couch due to fumes.

5.  During hallucinations, hear husband mumbling while watching TV.

6.  Am I back on a ladder?

Perfect! I can visualize each step! LOL! I hope your bougainillea will thrive (and you will survive!)

Luscious pics and very funny monologue! I tied my Lady Banks rose bush yesterday, teetering precariously on a rock. I'm usually by myself perched upon a big tall ladder. If I fall, well, I guess I just flat fall.

Hey Laura, I'll just hop on over now, and help you! You, me and ladders, not a problem. I'll do my best to help you...we can still do it!

Can you believe we are just a hop, skip and a jump from one another!

Lunch Friday...I'm counting the minutes till my therapy session starts-

You have blooming flowers at this time of year??? Oh...I must move to Texas! Bougainvillea, I just love the name of it! It's so pretty!

We did the same thing with our Wisteria last summer {love that name, too}, only it was my hubs up on the ladder!

Happy outdoor playing. I am going to make a snowman tomorrow.

You may be flirting with danger on that ladder during a sporting event ;-). xoxo

You're such a little daredevil! I sure wish I had you with me today at W&T's. I would have had you up on the ladder in the window instead of me.

Anything for a lovely garden. Too funny! I would love to have something blooming right now! More snow has fallen and more predicted next week. We won't be safe from frost here until May! If you survive please show us a bit more garden.

Funny post but I'm jealous of your bougainvillea!
