In Which Sheebie does not Act her Age.

Friends and Kitties!

At our house Scott is the Landscape Guru and I am the Instigator of Low Humor; occasionally these two things converge.  Last Friday Scott had a ton of pond rock delivered for top dressing in our entryway.  He called me at work when he was done:

Scott:  Hey.

Me:  HEY!

Scott:  So, I'm done with my rock project.

Me:  Already? You don't mess around when you play with your rocks.


Me:  So, how big are your rocks?  

Scott:  My rocks are all different sizes, and they're so heavy I need to use the wheelbarrow to move them!

Me:  Don't trip on your rocks!

Scott:  I won't.  Don't panic Sheeb, but some of my rocks are broken.


And later, when I got home:

Scott:  Come admire my rocks.  
Feel free to tread upon them.

Me:  Your rocks are multicolored!
They look great.

Scott:  They're a little dull right now, my rocks look better when they're wet.


The project does look nice--since the entryway faces East and doesn't get much sun anything we* put in there gets spindly after a year or two.  Scott moved the plumbago out of the archway planters (it didn't take) and put star jasmine in to grow up over the archway, and it's growing like crazy.  We'd like a couple of big pottery pieces for accents, but we're still thinking about what--and it'll have to meet with Puffy Cat's approval.

Big things are happening with the park across the street!
More on that next Sunday...I promise.

Happy Sunday and have a Fun Week!

* That's a metaphorical "we".


  1. I adore jasmine.
    Did you think I was going to say Scott's rock's?

  2. *or the "Royal" we - The Shepherd used to say - "We, who? You got a mouse in your pocket?"

    Lovely job on the entry way though.

    And I forgot to say - WOW, what a Rat! T.

  3. I can see that laughter at your house is just a stone's throw away.

  4. The peeps used to have an arch like that with jasmine, or so they tell me. We have a rock garden in the courtyard with big rocks like that in them. Somehow TW was getting her rocks off reading this blog cos she found it funny.

  5. It's good to have a sense of humour when you're married. ;)

  6. I bet your Mommy has an endless stream of stuff like that, doesn't she? Poor Daddy.

  7. *chortle*. The entryway looks great!

  8. Did I miss something there? (snicker snicker)...


  9. I saw a commercial today. Dad is leaving on a business trip. The kids say "Dad, we made you a video of us. Watch it on the airplane". They touch phones to transfer it. Then the wife leans in the car window and says "I made a video too", and touches phones. Then says "DON'T watch it on the airplane...".

    I bet THAT boosts sales...


  10. We luf it. Very zen-looking. Happy Sunday, furriends. xoxo

  11. We love rocks too. That bower will be gorgeous once filled in. Happy Sunday. Wish us luck with Sandy!

  12. Scott really knows his rocks!

    The entry way looks fantastic. I love star jasmine.

  13. You humans are nutty! One is in love with rocks, the other makes bad rock jokes - geez!

  14. Very nice your entrance ! If you want to have the pebbles more clean just water them with chlorid, the result is amazing. I did it at our entrance !

  15. Good fun! But really, great use of rocks.

  16. So Scott is allowed to have his rocks buut the mancats are not. There is something unfair about that.

  17. love the entryway!
    Isn't it fun making changes!

  18. You are so lucky to have such a great gardener right in the family. M says you can send him over to our house. he he

  19. You should hear the conversation hear when I get boba tea.

    Anywho my sister used to varnish her rocks so they were always looking wet.

  20. A man and his rocks.... :)

    But the entryway is looking great!!

  21. It's a good job you don't get snow in the desert! Frozen rocks are quite slippy!

  22. Never thought I'd say this about another guy's rocks but those are nice lookin rocks.

  23. Looks great! I'll say nothing more about the rocks.


  24. Me too think´s it loks´s GREAT !
    Me neither add no moore about the rocks *mol*

  25. Your rocks rock.
    Very inviting entryway.

  26. Star Jasmine has the virtue of growing here in CA. It does tend to strangle and kill any plant that might be growing nearby, though.

  27. Sheebie you and Scott ROCK!!
    Hugs Madi and Mom

  28. Scott has such amazing rocks! They're so versatile!

  29. Too funny about the rocks. The new entry way does look really nice. Well done Scott. Take care.
