Gardening, Home Improvement, Lunch Downtown Colorado Springs, and Fishing in Deckers

I am still irritated that I waited so long to bring my tomato plants out to the junkyard where there’s full sun. I liked them so much on the deck! Anyhow, they totally kicked ass in the past month. They’re huge, even the ones I started from seeds. There are a few tomatoes and lots of flowers but I don’t think I’ll wind up getting much cuz it’s cold now.


The other day was really nice so we went for a long bike ride.


Stopped for lunch at East Coast Deli which for some reason doesn’t have a website. Their egg salad sandwiches are the best thing ever.

Their rueben was really good, too. Not all huge like they can sometimes be.

It was really nice outside on Friday so we went about 45 miles up into the mountains to Deckers and DM did some fishing on the South Platte River. I sat and read magazines on the shore while he fished.

I never trust the weather here so I wore a long sleeved shirt and was way too hot. So DM gave me his tee shirt. LOL. He said he looked like a hillbilly in this outfit with no shirt on, and he did, so I had to have a picture.


He even caught four fish! He threw them back tho.

I made some roasted veggies the other night. I make them all the time but usually just mix them all up in a big pile. This time I separated them and I thought they looked pretty so here they are. Exciting!

Since it’s so cold here today and supposed to get to freezing tonight I brought a bunch of my plants inside. All the herbs I put in the kitchen and the tomatoes I put in the outside hallway. It’s still cold out there but not as bad as the actual outside and it gets pretty decent light from the window. We’ll see. I might put them back outside next week if the weather is nice again. The herbs are probably in for the winter, tho. Hopefully they won’t die in there.

I got this little cart in Amarillo on our way back from Dallas. Cute, huh?
