How is that for a title for my post? Many neighbors here in The Glens have been having some curbing installed around their flower beds. There are two companies that have done most of the work. One is Alabama Curbin...lol. Only in Alabama. The other is Southeast Curbing and that is the one I went with. I have looked at the work both companies have done and I am happy that I went with Southeast. It is owned by one of our local firefighters and he works on his days off. That meant we had to wait a while to get it done but he did a great job.
Because our curbing went a bit outside the original flower beds, Marvin and I had to make a trip to Lowes for topsoil and mulch to fill in the blank spaces.
My varigated hostas are dying back but my green hostas are still looking good. Once everything dies back I will add more mulch. I am not going to plant pansies this year. I am going with a plain look for winter.
While we were out shopping....Girls when I get my husband out to shop, I make sure that I get my money's worth! We have been needing a new mattress and I was determined to get one while I had him out!! We went to the store a friend had recommended. It is local, no frills and the mattresses are made here in America. There were several beds on display so that we could check out the firmness etc. The owner insisted we lay down on the mattresses and give them a try. Well as we were laying on one of the mattresses, Marvin turned to me and said, "We are on the wrong sides." That made a difference to my engineer husband.:) We picked out a KING mattress and the store delivered it that afternoon. How is that for service. It is still in the floor in our bedroom because we are playing fruit basket turnover. Our full bed in the guest room will go to granddaughter, Kendall, for her new bedroom. Our gueen bed will got to the guest room and finally we will get out bed in place. But that also means I need to shop for King Size Sheets, pillows etc. Maybe we will have it in place by the time Charles, Nancy and Audrey arrive for Thanksgiving.
Now I am off for coffee with some old friends from my Weekday school days. Have a grand day ladies.
