2010 Week 11
The weather here has been A.MAZ.ING. Hello 60s and sunny! Please make yourself comfortable!
It’s definitely one of those weeks when the weather is keeping me sane. I’ve opted to work from home this week, and because the dogs are happy to play sleep in the sun all afternoon, I’m actually getting some lectures written. Hurrah!
The little one has been especially tired out this week, and I think it’s because she’s spending her days torn between her two favorite activities: chewing on sticks and sitting on the driveway admiring any cars that drive by, like so:
She’s very lucky, because there are a lot of sticks to choose from. And by that, I mean, we had some trees removed last fall and there is brush EVERYWHERE. Apparently, when the foresters said, “we take everything with us because we can use or sell it all – including the tree tops. We make crates from the tree tops.” they actually MEANT, “We’re taking only the big stuff and leaving you with the mess.” Silly me, I should have read between the lines.
If anyone wants firewood, you’re welcome to come and cut your own.
And, if the tree branches scattered everywhere weren’t enough of a mess, the 5′ retaining wall around our house toppled during the spring thaw. And now we will spend the next 2 weeks debating whether we want to DIY this one or hire it out. Sigh.
Because the weather has been so nice, we’ve been trying to get some spring cleanup going on outside… which means the inside of the house is a disaster.
And I’d probably be a lot crabbier about it if it weren’t for these:
They’re not much to look at now, but they’ll be daffodils when the time is right. This is good news because it means I haven’t killed ALL of the plants in the yard yet. Keep your fingers crossed that the rest of the flowers in the backyard emerge when their time comes.
And these little crocuses are just about to bloom. Smile.
Hope you guys had wonderful wall-collapse-less weeks! It’s supposed to rain this weekend, which should give us a chance to work on the bathroom a bit more. What are your plans for the weekend?
