When Sweetz returned, he admired my clean fridge.
Of course, he commented
that there was alot more room now.
I didn't tell him I had thrown stuff away.
Like I said, I'm smarter than I look!
Look what Sweetz found in the garden. This little guy showed his annoyance at being picked up by peeing all over his hand. I had to laugh. Really...it was hilarious! The little guy was returned to the garden to help rid the area of some pesky bugs and he'll be rewarded with a few cukes and tomatoes as the summer progresses.
After supper I went outside and pruned things in the backyard that were getting out of hand. Doesn't take long with all these spring showers to have overgrown shrubbery, flowers, trees, and plants. It was a nice evening and I enjoyed listening to the birds chirping - guess they were enjoying the last moments of the day and I noticed they made the same sounds they make first thing in the morning. Why is it I never noticed that before?
My pruning project started near the door and then swung around to inch around the beds, to the side yard, and eventually into the front yard. Then it started sprinkling but I kept on pruning. Then it got harder and I kept pruning. Then it POURED and being that I am smarter than I look....I stopped. Stood under the eave of the house and waited patiently (after awhile it was impatiently) for the rain to stop. After all, I had an agenda to complete the job TODAY before it got dark. It won, I lost.
But I did go back outside
and stood under that same eave
and took a picture of the rain pouring cats and dogs
on my backyard pruning job.
I admired what I had done
and then knew
that I'll be back outside
completing the job another day.
The job - and I - will wait.
