Doctor's appointments ate up part of the week, we will not talk about the wicked spider bite, and just trying to keep up with the house when the yard is calling took another chunk. I've been pulling out what I call bind weed, I don't know what it really is, just that it spreads under the grass and chokes it out. I don't use chemical sprays, too many good critters might be harmed by it, plus I love pulling the buggers out by their little roots, so satisfying! Wouldn't it be nice if we could pull anything that annoyed us out by their roots!
Today we looked out at the lawn and there were dozens of small holes where an opossum had been rooting for grubs, definitely time for Mac to get the trap out. He baits it with cat food, and yes we've caught a cat or two in it, and when he catches an opossum he lets it go down in the state park, hoping he's not breaking up a happy family. They're not the most attractive animals in the world and he says they really smell bad!
Lamb shank bubbling away in the kitchen, laundry to be folded, need to snatch a few minutes to play piano and then watch the last round of the Masters from Augusta.
Doesn't look like much of a swamp here today. Quite cold, yes, yes I know it's really cold up north, but really, we're a 100 m...
Who says people in New York City are cold. Not true. When unpacking after our arrival Mac discovered he'd left the charger for his MP3...
It's Saturday and the temperature has finally gone up into the 40's. The snow has started to melt, but it has been so cold at night...
