Lynette: Dizzy and nauseous? Sounds like could be an inner ear problem. Smart to make appt to check it out.
OG: I suspect Lindybird is sorting through the backs of cupboards while her OH puts a second story on the house... :-)
AQ: Nice to happen upon more stained glass. I can imagine you didn't have too much trouble schmoozing your way in, especially as the former church is now dedicated to helping elderlies (though I'm sure you don't yet qualify as that).
Downsizing my garden involved taking out about 7 salvia (the easy part), leveling the area, which measures roughly 15 x 30 feet, then digging out the dymondia ground cover where it's climbing over the rocks in the rest of the garden and replanting the bits with nice roots where the salvia was (the not-so-easy part). So yesterday I spent all morning scooting back and forth on my little cart digging and planting and finally watering it all. In the front garden, where the irrigation is such a problem, I've decided to plant two medium-sized rocks. No watering, no pruning - I love it! I went to the place just across the freeway where they have Santa Barbara sandstone and other landscaping materials. They'll load the rocks and the guy said he could pop over and unload and maybe help place them for not too much money.
Off to check the headlines....
Lindybird: We have three olive trees in the front garden and we already had some rocks around them - it seemed like a simple fix rather than fretting about irrigation (yes, I know, a first world problem). I bet the Queen has had quite enough of family - at least our disagreements don't land us on the front pages. I wouldn't be surprised if your OH has another project lined up once the new furniture is in and sorted.
Lindybird: Saw some friends this afternoon who offered the same opinion of Little Women as you - chopped up and so much back and forth that they weren't sure what was going on.
