Oh, that spring yard work! Yesterday I cut down the pampas grass with the hedge trimmer which means bending over to cut it short – ugh – then raking the cut stalks out of the patch – and then picking up armloads from the ground and loading the trailer. The pain in my arms was so intense I could not get to sleep which means getting out of bed and of course the dogs think something exciting is happening and the barking begins! Of course Rick can sleep through anything.
Our friends from Washington State, Bob and Carolee, took the train from Seattle to Minneapolis and then a rental car to Garner – they surprised us and I had no time to make supper! They’re off on an antiquing adventure today.
Today I have to dismantle my kitchen before the painter comes tomorrow – another huge job.
So that’s what I’ve been up to. I found rat #20 or is it #21 in the grass and last night Hazel had her nose in one rat hole when I saw a rat run to another hole! so we’re not done yet – it has slowed considerably but we’re not finished.
Thanks for checking on me!
