10:08 am - Mulch-tastic
Ericka didn't get to sleep until 2:00 a.m. last night. Since I wanted to let her get in a full eight hours of sleep, I figured I'd be up until at least 10:00 a.m. before getting her some breakfast, morning drugs and like that. I'm used to being asleep by 8:00 a.m., though, so I had to find something to amuse myself in the interim.

Then I remembered that 90_percent_sure had helped me get the flowering plants in front of my house last week. And I'd been a slug about getting them some mulch to keep them wet and keep the weeds down.

So this morning I toddled over to Home Depot, picked up three bags of cedar bark mulch and applied it liberally over the flower bed. Go me! $10 later I have a nicely composted area for the plants. (I'm thinking another $10 will help, but this is a good start.)

The bags were two cubic feet each. In addition to being pretty, cedar should keeps bugs to a minimum. Smelled very good going on, too!
