Three More.

Our Location today is McGregor, Ontario, Canada.

With everything we did yesterday you would have thought that we would have slept like a couple of rocks well at least Kathy did. We had watched a movie on television the other day and for some reason I was dreaming that I was in the story. My dream kept me awake for nearly 3 Hours and when I don’t sleep through the night I ended up sleeping in until 8:30 this morning.
This guy kept Tweeting about the new trees.
After completing our morning reading on the Computers, we discussed what we wanted to accomplish with the rest of our day. When we stopped at Canadian Tire yesterday to get some paint we noticed they had a fresh shipment of Emerald Cedar Trees at a reasonable price. Even though Kathy had said we weren’t planting anymore trees this year after seeing those yesterday she changed her mind today.

It was after 11:00 when we left to go to the Canadian Tire store on Walker Road. Even though it was slightly cooler the 91 F (33 C) Humidex was still affecting Kathy’s breathing. I dropped her where the trees were on display so she could start choosing the best ones to be found while I parked the truck and found a low platform cart. Within minutes we were inside with our purchase of 3 more Trees. 

Since it was then past 1:00 Kathy said she’d like Tacos for lunch so the closest place on Walker Road for Tacos is Quesada, Burritos & Tacos. This seems to be a new chain that is just getting started in our area and they are good. Kathy had the 3 Grilled Chicken Tacos to suit her taste and I had the 3 Spicy Chicken Tacos. That was enough to fill us up but not make us feel stuffed. 
3 more trees to plant.
We headed up the road to Home Depot where we picked up additional Decorative Edging Bricks that will be used to lengthen the edging around the trees at the rear of our patio. 
First we started with the Firepit Tree then added two more.
We were Home by 2:30 and with the slightly more comfortable temperatures I thought that this would be the perfect day to get these trees planted. After changing into my work shoes I started by pushing back the decorative stone then the bricks at the last tree. We used the same thirty-inch centers between the trees so by 4:00 we’d managed to plant the first two trees in their New Permanent Homes. It was still warm enough that we both went through two bottles of Gatorade each. After pushing the decorative stone and bricks at the opposite end of the trees it would take nearly two hours to dig that one hole due to lots of Tree Roots from a nearby Maple Tree

It was minutes before 6:00 when Kathy called me in for supper. She had made Pancakes covered with Berries and Bacon for our meal. We listened to the News while we dined. The meal again left us Satisfied without being Stuffed
Cleaning the Clay out of the first hole.

We headed back outside and finally got the 3rd tree planted but we were far from done. We had to cut the Landscape Cloth and make it fit tightly around the trees. When that was finished I had to relay the Decorative Edging Bricks so that the Cloth was properly held in position before releveling the decorative stone back around the trees. Even though we had additional bags of the decorative stone on hand we’ll still need 3 more bags to finish our project.

Kathy had turned on the Water Heater when she did the dishes. When we finished outside after 8:30 I was the first one in the shower. As soon as I started writing the Blog Kathy got her chance to feel refreshed. 
Three more Trees still needs 3 more bags of Decorative Stone.
We are both feeling stiff tonight so we’ll see how we feel tomorrow before we get into something else. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.
