I haz barbecue nao!

My weekend project is to try to make the balcony usable again. To that end we have gone out and purchased a propane barbecue grill. In a box. Unassembled.

Guess what I get to do tomorrow?

But that's okay, I love building things. I must have been either a beaver or a paper wasp in another life. I'm hoping it takes me only a couple of hours to put together. Four hours max. If I'm bald and hoarse by tomorrow night, you'll know why.

I also picked up a cactus, an aloe vera and a miniature rose at the 99-cent store. My balcony gets very little sun, but we'll see what happens. If the rose thrives I'm going to try to separate it, as I noticed it was three different plants crammed into the little pot. I repotted it into a larger pot and spaced them out a bit to give them room to grow. As I took the deadheads off, I noticed it had a tiny bud just starting to shoot out. I sure hope it blooms.

Pictures will be forthcoming...you were warned.

You're a good squinter. ;)

Things are a little slow over at my journal so far, but maybe that'll change.
