Well it’s Sunday night. Wow where did the weekend go? Half of my weekend was busy. I started at 9:00 AM on Saturday morning and started trimming this terribly overgrown bush in my backyard. I have been avoiding it. Some of the stems from the bush were taller than me. I had to break out the ladder. Getting the ladder situated in my shrubs is no longer easy since adding all the stones. I finally had to move a portion of the stones to get the ladder put in place. I would show you the before pics of the bush but I am too embarrassed. I will show you some of the clippings.
I then deided while I had the stones moved I would put the new cover on my drier exhaust. My husband has been promising to put it on for months and I am tired of seeing the huge gaping hole that any critter or worse, a spider, could crawl into. I had to go to my father in law’s house to get the extension ladder for this one. I would like to tell you that I whipped that thing on there in no time. Not. I ran into a few problems and it took a good portion of the day with several thousand trips up and down that ladder. I may be exaggerating just a little about that. When I finally got it all put together I ran into town to get groceries praying I wouldn’t see anyone that I knew. I have this incognito look where I wear my hair in a ponytail in a ball cap and glasses. It usually works. I only saw a couple of people I knew.
look at all the flowers losing their summer glory waiting for fall
Ahhh Sunday a very relaxing day after getting my husband off to a conference. He will be there for four days. I felt like Tom Cruise in Risky Business sliding across the floor.
You can tell it’s not me traveling this time look at this little suitcase my husband is taking for a four day trip, what????
So the rest of the day was spent napping, reading, knitting, and hanging out with my fur babies. A good Sunday.
A busy week coming up. I am headed to Colorado on Saturday for a Cave Convention, yes there really is such a thing, so a lot to do this week to get ready to be gone for a week.
Love your day your way
