I am amazed. We have had six beautiful days in a ROW! That NEVER happens. I am grateful! Heck, I'm grateful for every day. Doesn't have to be a sunny one but that is sure an added pleasure.
Headed to The Big City to visit grandson this morning along with his great grandmother in tow. He is a month and four days old now. And changes are apparent. I think he will be, as a good blogging friend put it yesterday, a suitable contender for the Princess Royal's hand by and by.
I got the house cleaned up as is my habit. Once a week it is a thorough drubbing; the rest is on an as needed basis. I love to sit later in the thorough cleaning day and just look at the vacuum cleaner marks through the very trackable carpet. The minute either I-- or anyone else including the cat walk over it, it's (steps) very visible.
For once the air conditioning was on yesterday. Not terribly needed but delightful anyway. The yard was mowed and weed eater was used so everything looks good out there. I hire out the job as I have a steep hilly yard. I had them cut any brush and weeds away from the back fence as it is facing onto the forest and wild things grown up to it and tries to take over the yard in back. Have to keep after it.
Anyone know a good English Ivy killer? Round Up Tough Brush and Poison Ivy Killer does not seem to have done the job. It's still out there looking like it's ready to celebrate another century of living well!!
My poor rose tree (that's what it's called) died. It had come back well after the horrible ice storms and all, and then, two killing freezes killed it deader than a door nail. My poor Gardenia had made a comeback as well and the ice storms killed it before the hard freezes could even try. VERY sad for me as I love both. The yard is too hard for me to dig in so I have to hire THAT done as well if I find a plant. Ground is like concrete.
See ya over at your place...
