I just could not make myself sew yesterday like should have. I puttered in the yard. Actually I worked really hard around the stone walk and the pond. Both the neighbor and Hubs reminded me about how sick I got several years ago cleaning the pond by ingesting an organism. But I do not have the money to have it professionally cleaned and hubs can't do it. This would involve bending over. I have him on a diet and he is a grouch. I actually took two pieces of strawberry/rhubarb pie out to the chickens so he could not come home and eat it. I am evil. My scale likes me again and I have lost 3 lbs so far. I am 9 lbs away from my goal.
I had a ton of work come in yesterday so I really am going to get into the shop today and get busy. But I love being outside and it is such a chore. I have almost got the stone walk done, I just have one more bag of sand to get into it. I also have cut and trimmed everything around the pond. I have the skimmer emptied. Now I have to clean up all the trimmings and I hope hubs will help me with that tonight.
We went on a bike ride last night on the levee and tonight I think we are going to do the loop. It is so cool and nice down by the river and the breeze blows in your face. I am getting used to the new gears on my bike.
We had a big thunder/wind storm with very little rain last night and the yard is now kind of a mess with limbs and leaves all over. All the patios and walkways are covered, but I decided to finish around the pond and clean up at the end. Then is can all go into the truck and out to the dump. I am a sticky dirty mess right now from crawling around in the muck, so I had better go clean up so I can greet my public.
I took out a large lemon balm plant and hubs is going to have to pull out the roots for me with a Pulaski as I am not able to do it. I want to plant a few more blueberry bushes as the ones we planted a few years ago are doing great. One thing about being so busy is that I don't spend money. I did get a ton of bills in last night, so sad.
Out My Window: It is beautiful outside and I want to stay out there and bask.
Have a great and productive day!
