Yesterday I hit the Friday wall. I was so exhausted that I went to bed about 6 pm, slept until 8:30 pm, and then slept from about 10:30 pm to 6:30 this morning. I guess I really needed it!
Today we are supposed to have heavy rain and thunderstorms so I went for a decent walk first thing in the morning. The university campus was once again, sparsely populated…
When I got home the sun was peeking out, so I did some weeding and raking (with my new 8 inch wide shrub rake) in the garden beds until the rain got more serious. I must say though that my yard and garden isn’t in as tip-top shape as so many others that I hear about, since I still work 40+ hours per week, but I feel like I’m making some progress!
I planted the yellow/green colored Golden Millet grass that I bought on my grocery run last weekend. It will go nicely with the Emerald Gold Euonymus shrub that I planted years ago and is still struggling to get established… Each year it is the little shrub that could – never gaining much of a foothold but refusing to die. Maybe this is the year!
The rest of my day promises to be wildly exciting. I finished a puzzle Thursday night so I might start a new one, read one or both of my current books, or do more writing here on the blog!
I hope you are all staying safe, and hopefully your weather is sunnier and warmer than mine!
