dog day

Does it get any better than this?

Lucy has just dug up another mole. She is excited at a job well done in her mind, while the yard has yet another hole in it. But the sun is shining and something good has been scented. She has taken over my chaisse once again.
I took this the other day. Today, I have been all over the yard, digging up dead boxwood root balls, transplanting peonies to where they will bloom, reorganizing the shed, weeding, watering and trimming dead branches. Guess what I meant to do?  That’s right, none of the above. I went out to weed whack the driveway edges and hedge trim the boxwoods in front of the big window. I still intend to make the driveway job happen today, because the whacker and extension cord are waiting for me there, but I’m hoping the forecast rain holds off tomorrow, so that I may trim to where the window is visible again then. I don’t think I can do all of it today. This is me trying to listen to my back. I’m still a little late, but I may actually not put the darn thing completely out.

  1. Take care, you. And oh the dreamy site of clear, pretty air. We've been smoked and ashed in for a couple weeks now and it's just getting worse. There are nearly 400 active wildfires in the state of Florida right now and about 2/3 of them are in northeast Florida, right here in my backyard.

  2. i saw your posts about it, i need to go take an actual look. sort of have a chance to do so now. last week or so ago, the teen got off of the school bus saying, 'is north carolina on fire again?' tis the season….good luck, kelly!
