Saturday Morning


i-wnccq6P-XL

So I’m sitting here sipping on a morning cup of coffee listening to the sounds of the jets flying overhead as they make their way into MSP.  It was cool out there when I woke up but the temps have risen steadily since then.  The birds are singing, traffic is light on the road out back and Miss Lily has found herself a spot of carpet that the sun is shining on.  It must have warmed that spot pretty good given how she is all curled up on it.

I have plenty of outside chores to get done this weekend:

  • Paint the block foundation on the south side of the house.
  • Plant my beans, pumpkins and a new crop of peas in the new bed.
  • I have to clean up and put away the heated bird bath.
  • There’s a run to the market.
  • Mulch to put down.
  • Weed and feed for the lawn.
  • And a few other things as well.

It’s going to be a busy weekend.  I have two little girls coming to see me and to spend the night.  I’ll have them help me plant but I’m sure they’ll want cheeseburgers and fries for supper and a fire in the pit after that so they can have some S’mores.  That may not be a bad idea.  It should be a beautiful night sky out tonight.

      1. summers aren’t so bad here. at least not when compared to the summers we had in southern Iowa. I’m not sure what tried to kill you first; the heat, the humidity or the mosquitoes.

      1. Sorry for your loss Jim. What a nice gesture on behalf of your family for the staff. They really are remarkable people but and thankfully we’ve seen very few who aren’t cut out for the job.
