Hello everyone; yes, once again it is I, Chess the purebred border collie, here to tell you all about my day. You may remember me from such delightful and riveting posts as “The Abandoned House” and “Bunnies On The Grass, Alas”, among so many, many others.
Here I am in a characteristic pose. Looking very purebred, if you ask me.
It was pretty nice today. The guy I live with took a picture of the thermometer, the one of the patio in the shade, about 4 o’clock this afternoon. You read the thermometer on the left to see the current temperature.
The snow is melting, at least a little. Technically, according to the guy I live with, it’s sublimating; that is, evaporating in the sun. He thinks the sand pile looks pretty good.
Oh, and by the way, the arbor that my mommy built has a seat on it, which you can see. You can also see how much the garden slopes down to the “way back”.
He also took a picture sort of pointing into the sun, which they say you’re never supposed to do, but he did anyway. Those are dwarf conifers in the pots there. They sit outside all winter. The guy I lived with raked the path, which you can see, to help with the melting. Oh, sorry, sublimation.
And then a picture of me sniffing something.
Well, so, maybe I should explain the title of today’s post. I’ve said before that the guy I live with is kind of a nut, and today he got all excited because he got what he calls his “seed-starting equipment”. This is it.
Isn’t this weird? Salt shakers, and two beakers. He said he got two beakers because “they’re made of glass”, and it took me a little while to figure out what he was saying. He’s really excited about this. I already said that, but saying it again shows how excited he is. One of the salt shakers, the one not on the cutting board, does hold salt. It isn’t involved in this project.
I know beakers hold water, and they have measurement lines on them; that part I get. But the salt shakers? He kind of explained this to me but I confess my mind wandered off to something else, like biscuits, for instance.
The guy I live with says he’ll show what this is all about when he actually starts doing something with them. I can hardly wait …..
That’s all I have for today. Salt shakers, and beakers.
Until next time, then.
