Matt’s parents were up for the weekend. After my hair appt Friday, I came home, met them and the 4 of us headed to meet my parents for dinner at Porters on campus. Matt and I have been several times and we really enjoy it.
Saturday Jill and Steve had plans with friends so Matt and I ran a few errands. We stopped by Lowe’s so I could buy more flowers. Lowe’s had a pretty poor selection so I ended up with a few geraniums. I really wanted more begonias but they didn’t have any I did manage to find a hibiscus on clearance. I have no idea if it will make it, the poor thing was soaked through but for $4.00 I thought it was worth tying to save.
We got home and pulled up my pansies and then planted the geraniums. I got about half the pot filled with soil for the hibiscus when I ran out of soil. By this point I was super sweaty and dirty so I didn’t feel like running back to Lowe’s for more soil. I figured we could run by on Sunday.
Sunday the guys were supposed to play golf but the forecast was rainy so we all ended up going to Southpoint in Durham. After like 6 hours of walking around and shopping we headed back to Raleigh to find dinner. We settled on one of our fave Mexican restaurants Dos Taquitos. As always the food was delicious.
Today I ran to Lowe’s and picked up more soil and finally got my hibiscus in a pot. The roots were soaked through. I hope it will dry out soon and be okay. I’ll post some pics if it doesn’t die.
