Somewhere pigs are flying, hell is freezing over, and "that'll be the day" is here


I did yard work.


I finally tore out the dead mums that have been in our front yard since last year. Yes - LAST YEAR. I am not a gardener in any sense of the word. And Mr. Andy Man has enough to take care of with mowing the lawns and such that I never pushed him to do it.

Part of the reason is that I extremely dislike bugs. ((shudder)) And I extremely dislike the heat. But today was such a beautiful day and I wanted the girls to be outside. We had to go to Lowe's to buy Andy a week-wacker and I saw gardening gloves. I threw them in the cart and made the decision that today was going to be the day! Those mums - really dead sticks at this point - were coming out!

It went pretty quickly and I discovered that a nice pair of thick gloves brings my bug tolerance way up. I was even picking out worms for the girls to observe.

While I was working Mr. Andy Man set up the hose and let the girls play with it for a while.




He is taking them for a walk around the neighborhood in the wagon right now. It is a beautiful Saturday. Hope you all are enjoying yours.
