DH was chatting outside with the neighbors yesterday and they definitely heard the gun shots between 9:30 and 10. Mr was already asleep and it woke him up. He told dh the more he thought about it the next morning the more he decided to call the sheriff to report it. Dh told him he had called and the "non" response he got. Mr. said he's calling anyway and apparently he did, he texted dh later to tell him. I said good, because one person in the area reporting it looks to the sheriff like obviously it's not big deal, no one else is complaining. Two people make a difference. Also dh and I are "nobody's" in this county. Mr and Mrs are "somebodies" LOL. And hopefully we weren't the only ones who called. I can only imagine living right on that road and having to listen to that right next to it. We're a half a mile away and it sounded like machine gun fire, loud.
Sunday was really nice weather and we got the flowers planted in all the pots and also the ones in the ground. I had to replace a few that didn't make it, that are around the front and side of the house. I replaced with daylilies, as those are the ones that made it good through winter and came right back. DH wanted some kind of taller leafy flowers out between the front fence and the "rock creek" so I decided on daylilies for there, too. Down farther and near the little bridge we have some Iris's planted, but 1) they don't bloom their pretty flowers for long and 2) each bulb is like $10!. We were lucky and got all the ones we did from when Mrs. Neighbor thinned hers out. I told dh in a couple years we'll be able to thin some of ours out and plant more in other spots, but for now I'm not spending $10 for one bulb. Daylilies bloom for a long time and the tall green leaves look good too. These will get bigger over time. Our other ones near the house have at least doubled in size in the last year or two.
I need to get 4 more to plant along the fence where I was standing, taking this picture. I have about 2 6packs of petunias left. I need to get a hanging pot for the chicken coop and was going to buy one pre-made but since I have the extra flowers I'll just buy a hanging pot. My back and legs were toast after all the bending over and walking around. Kitty was outside with us the whole time enjoying himself.
It was also good to "unplug" for the day with the mom cameras LOL. Dinner was the leftover pizza, so super easy. That's 2 nights last week we had leftovers. That can really add up in the grocery budget savings. I think tonight I will make my cheese/bacon hashbrown casserole. Dh really likes that for leftovers so that will give us at least one night this coming week to save.
Saturday evening I started watching a new show on Netflix based on the "Lincoln Lawyer" books (and movie) by Michael Connelly. I've read them all and am so far enjoying the series. Similar to my enjoyment of the Bosch series, based on same author's books. I watched another episode or two last night.
I had made sure to water all the flowers really well and then it poured rain last night, LOL. When dh came to bed he said I won't need to water for 3 days after that rain we just got. Of course we had just put out the patio table and chairs (with cushions) yesterday, but dh got the chairs moved over underneath the back patio covered area before it started.
When you have a craving for a Peanut Buster Parfait and the nearest DQ is 45 miles away? Well you make your own! I have to say it was pretty dang close. I would try a different/better ice cream next time, but the peanuts and the hot fudge were spot on.
