Lawn work and "my thoughts exactly"
Our temperatures have been at or near 80 off and on the past week so we've been scrambling to get all the leaf "mulch" off of our property where bulbs have suddenly sprouted. (That's about thirty degrees above average by the way...June highs...not March!)
I've mentioned before that we have a smallish house and a big yard! We have a wooden fence that is the boundary to the east and south of our property and all the area by the fence has been beautifully landscaped by past home owners. Add to that, up next to the house on three sides, it has also been landscaped so we have a lot of work to do. It's worth it in the long run, just wears one out at the beginning of Spring and the end of Autumn.
My husband went out for a couple of hours after church yesterday to continue what I had begun on Saturday. I spent at least an hour raking off leaf mulch and cutting back dried plant materials today and there is still one long stretch of fence to try to finish this evening. I hear thunder in the distance and the sky has turned black so...being smarter than the average bear...I got in out of the potential bad weather! Hoping to get back out again soon. I'll write more about what I'm thinking of doing with our yard this year at another time.
I also have to print off some material about Christian Worldviews for my co-op class tomorrow as well as bake six dozen cookies for a library function on Thursday. So I guess I'd better get started again.
So, since I have nothing much worth writing about with the possible exception of global warming (just kidding), I'll send you over to the fantastic post by Debra at As I See It Now. It's my thoughts exactly about living life!
