And some in my front yard. Where there aren't any trees.
We had to have had some pretty stout winds to blow those branches there. On the way to work, I saw lots of twigs and leaves down, and I heard there was a tree down west of town, but no major damage. At least, none that I've heard of. A lot of people were without power, but I didn't lose mine. Thank goodness for that.
I got some more news on my coworker who was arrested yesterday. Turns out it wasn't for selling drugs after all. Turns out he is a murder suspect in Memphis. I found an article in the local paper about it. I tried to search in one of the Memphis papers' website, but there were too many homicide articles, and I couldn't find it. They actually have a homicide tracker feature on the site. Wow, it makes me glad I live in a small town.
I mean, there are murders here, but not that often. Not multiple murders each day.
Well, that was my excitement for today.
Yesterday, I was out in my yard. I wanted to mow before the storms hit. On a whim, I decided to check the pecan tree, and I saw buds! You know what that means? I can plant!
I think I'm going to put some French Marigolds in this weekend. Just the one bed, though, so I can cover it up if I need to. Yee haw! I'm so excited!
