Tired, but pleased...
When asked why he missed Tai Chi on Tuesday night, Thomas replied that he had been taking part in National Shrub Trimming Day. Unaware of this year's schedule, I failed to participate. (You could have told me, Thomas.) At any rate, better late than never--I had my own Local Shrub Trimming Day today. I was the lone participant on my street, but there are two large piles waiting for pick up!
Yesterday, despite the threat of rain, I mowed and edged...front and back. So today, I trimmed trees and shrubs, pulled ivy (3 kinds), pulled lemon balm and mint, cut back or pulled 3 kinds of artemesia, removed and disposed of old lattice and trellis, completely cut down the climbing rose that forced me off the side walk on the side of the house, and took out a section of picket fencing. One benefit was the wonderful scents of mint, lemon balm, rose, and artemesia. Now, too tired to go to Tai Chi tonight myself, I'm indulging in a glass of Pinot Grigio and anticipating a hot bath and reading in my pajamas until time for bed.
