I looked up your bellflower - pretty - there is an invasive weed here called Mexican petunia that next door planted on purpose that now crawls through my back yard lawn.

The casserole smells great but boiled over and now there is a sticky brown puddle in the bottom of the oven. Do I want to soak it off or just go ahead and do the whole hot long oven cleaning thing?

Sunday afternoon on the holiday weekend and I'm not finding much energy to go outside and do all of the garden things that need doing. Once I get started I keep going, it's the getting out the door to start with (I suspect the cloudy overcast that is partly to blame). That said, I am sitting here at the computer and working my way through the book, a quarter of the way so far. I'm reading along on parts as I go and can see how some of these repairs are handled.

Part of my attitude toward holidays (I stay away from the noisy crowded activities) comes from years as a park ranger when we were usually the destination of a lot of people with the days off. There were no days off for us on public holidays, it was overtime or holiday pay, but the public aren't famous for being bright and thoughtful; especially during these nice-weather holidays there is a lot of drinking and driving or boat operation, campfires out of control, fights break out. Noise. Long lines at attractions.
