Good morning and happy Tuesday! I hope everyone had a great weekend (even if it was a tad short). I have a burr up my butt (as Mr. Stodgy says and yes he really does dance like this) about landscaping the back yard. Now granted I’ve done nothing but sit in my recliner on my butt for a few years now. Depression can be a killer! All of a sudden I feel great and I want to work outside and get some things done. Yesterday I decided to tackle the dog run in the back. We don’t have any big dogs anymore and it’s taking up too much space. It’s all down except for two posts which I just could not get out of the ground. I’ll have some pictures later . . . some before and after. There are some wild Trumpet Vines in the boulevard and the dog run was in my way of where I want to plant them. I’ll be digging them up later this morning when its cooler.
Oh I might add that was a little upset with me. He thinks my neighbor and I are collaborating on making our back yard a jungle. (I can only wish . . . I LOVE Michaels back yard.) He wanted to know my master plan and was actually perturbed that I did something he’s been wanting to do for months and months. He also let me know that the outside of the house needs staining, the deck needs to be cleaned and why in the hell did I take down the dog run instead of dusting? After a few minutes of steam coming out of my ears , I said to him “don’t you think you should be happy that I actually feel well and wanted to get outside. At least I wasn’t sitting on my ass!” He had to stop and think . . . and then I insisted we go outside and TALK about this master plan. Gee wiz it appears we were on the same wave length . . . .
This story could go on and on, so let me end here for the day. Moving On . . . .
