More

Well these tomato plants want water - every day! Assuming they want so much now, I am imaging twice daily waterings when summer arrives.
Meaning getting up earlier before work, watering them nicely and then getting them again when I get home from work.

This isn't a big issue, just didn't realize how much water they need. I planted one in a plastic planter earlier, but I got busy with installing a pond and spaced the rest of them out - until just now that is.

Looks like 2 bags of sand are good for one hole. Which is really good - I didn't want to have to buy a lot of it for this project.

Changing subject, I went to Walmart today to see if I could find a more suitable plastic container to use for the bio-filter. I haven't been able to find what I have been looking for - there is one available that is much bigger than I need it, but nothing else.

They didn't have what I was looking for, either. I wandered around the store, eventually ended up in the grocery section, got some stuff and then - headed to the meat and cheese portion of the deli. There were 3 people waiting with one employee working it. There were 2 other employees in the back - gabbing away.

I decided that, since these people were THERE this time, instead of asking for management, I would just ask that one of those individuals come up and serve me. The woman helping another person did not actually respond to my request. So I said it again, louder. That was enough for her - she called towards one of the women in the back, I'm assuming some level of management, who asked what she wanted, she replied and the lady came up to serve me. Not begrudgingly, either. In fact, it was superb customer service, albeit it the fact that I had to ask twice to get someone to do something.

I'm home, basically, for the weekend. One pond is now leveled with sand underneath. It's also the one that needed patch, patch done.

Ummm, I am really tired, I just realized and I am going to go take a nap before nightfall arrives.

Later.

Friday

Not exactly sure how we got to the 5th month - well okay, still a day away - of this year so fast?
Well, it's also Friday, which is like totally awesome dude!
I don't have a lot of time here, I just posted an ad on Craigslist for the room that will be available on Sunday which takes precedence over writing blog entries.

Anyway, I didn't get the opportunity to take any of the rocks home yesterday because I wanted to get sand and cement mix to the house instead. Rocks can go today. Besides, I probably won't even get to the rock structure of the waterfall this weekend - but just in case, I'm going to haul as much of it home this afternoon as I can.

That's it for this entry, time's up!
