Sunday we planted 6 knockout rose bushes which I am so excited about. I left all my old roses at the house I sold last August and I think the new owner has torn them all out. This almost killed me because I had some very special varieties there. Anyway, moving on, I found some knockouts and planted them but I still want to get a few other bushes that are not the knockout variety but have specific colors because there are a few I just love.
Also, after planting 2 peach trees and 2 pear trees and getting ready to plant 2 pecans (we are debating where for those) we decided we had room for one more fruit tree in the front and since I feel like 2 of the above are more than enough, I decided to go plum. Husband wants a fig too but I can't find one and we have 1.2 acres so I am pretty sure we can find a spot. :)
Have I mentioned that in a few years I am going to need to learn to can? Seriously, either that or I am going to have to give a lot of fruit parties!

After we got home because a day on the lake wasn't enough work, hubs decided to work on the garden a little more and then we watched Notre Dame-Kentucky. Now, if you are new, you don't know but my birth family and I are big time Notre Dame fans, I mean, live, die, and bleed blue and gold. In fact, Notre Dame plays Texas in the first game of the college football season in 2015 and even though I went to Texas and am a Longhorn, I always cheer, cheer for Old Notre Dame when they go head to head. Only time I ever do that but it is in my blood. Anyway, back to Saturday, I have never been more proud to be a Notre Dame fan. They were not suppose to play with Kentucky and they nearly beat them. They were amazing actually. That aside, I went into the game thinking if Notre Dame didn't win, I would pull for Kentucky and the undefeated season. 2.3 seconds of listening to their total idiot of a head coach and his arrogant, obnoxious, and supreme lack of anything resembling sportsmanship later and I can't wait for someone to take him down.
Meanwhile, Sunday night the Notre Dame women advanced to the final four. Yay Lady Irish!!!
The Walking Dead:
I am going to try really hard not to spoil anything for anyone who didn't watch last night. Let me just say this, My husband has a hard time staying up for the show on Sunday night and usually falls asleep next to me while I watch either in bed or on the couch. Last night was no different except for two things, the season finale was 90 minutes and I woke him up at least twice screaming at the TV in fear/horror! That episode was so intense and I am going to watch it again, maybe tonight because I need to understand everything and I may have to watch it a third time because that is how much there was there. So much going on and I was just wishing there was 5 more minutes when the end finally happened. Oh. My. Gawd!!!
Thankfully, in a couple of weeks I will have a few things to occupy my thoughts on Sunday night, Rangers baseball, Game of Thrones, and endless furniture projects to finish! Otherwise, it would be a very long summer. Oh. My. Gawd, The Walking DEAD!!!! Oh and the new Walking Dead spin off. I am so excited about that too!
