I try to pull some weeds outa the front yard everyday. So far, so good. It's lookin' better than it has in the spring in ages. If I manage to keep it up it won't be a ridiculous & daunting task come party time. Once that's all done I'll have to put down some "amaze", a deterrent, & water it down. I try to do that twice a year to prevent new stuff from taking over the yards. Not easy, but I do think it helps. The backyard is the bear though. Ugh! But it's easier doing bit by bit. Should look ok by the party in May. I hope so at least. Don't forget that you can burn quite a few calories doing yard work. I managed to get the lighting back up & running, the sail shades back up and switched out the cording for steel cables which should keep ahold better during rougher, windier weather.
I worked like a dog last week. I was soooooooooo tired. Plus, I took Thursday off 'cuz I got my teeth cleaned. No, my teeth weren't that gross to need a whole day but my pschy & body needed the day off. My sis always laughs at me for taking the entire day off but by the time the day comes I need an extra day to myself. It felt great to not go in. Helps to clear the cobwebs, ya know? My bud D. was not happy with me for not being there. In truth, she understood big time. She's pretty pooped too.
Don't get me wrong, we both love what we do but it can be tack-sing at times. I know, I know, wah-wah-wah!
I fired up the grill the other day and grilled up about 7 pork chops. I added each of the 4 different blends of Buck & Judy's Dang Rub on them. Yummy! No, I didn't eat them all at 1 time. I've actually only eaten 1 chop. But it was so huge that I ate it over 2 dinners. Paired with a nice salad, I was in food heaven.
Buck's getting closer to being ready to sell his rubs on-line and I'll be happy to sell them here at this site. I know you'll love them. He's getting all of the appropriate FDA approval ducks in a row.
Putney got some really long walks this last weekend and he was so happy (and exhausted) about them. He just gets that cute little puppy face on for an 11-13 year old pooch. I do tire of his having to leave a message on each and every bush, shrub, tree and post of some sort.
I've pulled out my ears & tail to wear at work today, being Easter. It's a fun way to remind people of the day. It seems that no matter which of the 2 major religions you are a part of, this time of year is important. Sorry, I don't know about the other religions. But between Passover and Easter there's a hope out there that something can be done for the better. I certainly hope so.
My sis sold her home this last week. It was all kind of a surprise. She's going to move into her daughters condo instead. The condo has been a rental property for about 5 years now since my niece moved to Calif. It's been rough. She couldn't get what she wanted for rent due to the times. Then people were breaking their leases, moving out earlier than expected, no, the place is well kept, then there was a huge legal issue when someone at the management company absconded with the monies from the company and then the company went bankrupt, so now G. will be moving in. She's gonna really make it great. She'll be closer to our Mom (good news or bad we'll have to wait & see) and on my way to work & back.
As I'm sure you can tell, I'm still having a time with this new site, trying to figure this out, so again please be patient and I'll eventually get it all done. In the mean time, enjoy your life be good to yourself and others and stay healthy.
