It has been dreadful here in the Tron over the past week. It was insanely foggy from Monday to Wednesday and wet and windy the next two days, however – Saturday more than made up for the previous dreary days. Little doggie and I woke up to a glorious Saturday morning! The sun was out and the sky was a brilliant blue! It was a shame to NOT go out and walk – and walk we did. I had to make it up to little doggie because we didn’t go for our long walk on Thursday and Friday night on account of rain.
Little doggie and I even saw a couple of hot air balloons floating lazily up in the sky. It really is a glorious Saturday and the sunlight has already done marvels for my mood. No longer cranky and dour – now somewhat more … stable.
Anyway – it’s just turned 12:00 nn and I am pleased to announce that I have all ready completed my household chores! I ran the laundry before Little Doggie and I went out for our walk and when I got back, I just put them out on the line to dry. I was thinking of washing my sheets but … nah! I think I’ll do that after I get back from my Holiday. Besides, my sheets ain’t stinky!
Then after I put the laundry out, I then mowed the lawn in the back yard, and trimmed some wayward branches off a few of my shrubs and trees. Not content with that, I decided to finally work on my messy yard. I just can’t stand the gold and brown blanket of leaves . . .
I dragged the green wheelie bin, and of course, my rake and started raking off the dead leaves. I divvied the area up and raked in segments – that way I wouldn’t be too overwhelmed by the whole job. After much raking and bending over (to pick the leaves up and dump them inside the wheelie bin), I finally completed my task. Voila!
Such a pretty sight – my back will ache like hell later tonight but I think having a tidy yard is worth a bit of pain. Oh by the way, lot of those leaves were piled under my camellia tree – and it’s not because I got tired of raking and just put them “under the rug” so to speak, mum said these dried leaves will turn into mulch and become fertiliser. How that happens I have no idea. I will do some research on it.
So anyway, that was my morning. I’m going to have a bit of lunch now and then find something else to do (perhaps, write an article?) so I can accomplish even more on this wonderful weekend. Meanwhile, I wish everyone a Happy Saturday!
