      ... keep that path manicured.  If it's functional and not too terribly overgrown around the edges, that's all i'm going for at the moment.  Some day, it would be nice if it looked as lovingly tended to as the one Stix made, but that's going to be a long way off.  I have too many other things i MUST focus on (even though i'd rather be working on the path). :)

        and my gift to myself is to take the whole day off from work.  I could get into work after PT, but it would be for like all of 3 hours.  So I decided rather than rush around I'll use time and take the day.

        It was sooooo beautiful out!!!  Didn't get on my knees today!!  But I was stooping.  Wanted to put together the large raised bed (now that I have a cleared out space!!  yay!  back to raised veggie gardens!!  :D)  Got it set up, but one side dips.  I gotta straighten it out or it will drive me crazy forever.  Haven't filled it yet with soil, so it'll be easy to do, just too tired right now.

        Cleaned out one of the pond filters... the fish are loving the stronger waterfall.  I need to rethink some planning on the pond.  Over the winter, one of the filters conked out.  It was a bitch to get in and pull out everything!!  I gotta figure a way so that the pump is up high and easily accessible)  I'm pretty certain I figured things out, just gotta redo stuff.

        It's soooo nice to just go and get some field stones from the pallet... and I don't have to haul stones from all over the yard!!  LOL  My pathway will be partly stone and then other parts will be mulch (like towards the back).  And since those guys should NOT be coming back, I won't have to keep replacing mulch!!!

        It's looking like my solomon's seal is okay from where they were raking so hard since I see lots of points coming up.  But I don't see the bleeding heart in that area.  :(

          Are you too young to remember the Bewitched episodes where she twinkles her nose and moves a gazillion times faster than everyone else to get housework or some such done?  That's what i imagine you look like in your yard! :)

          Honestly, i'm thrilled you had such a good day today, and it's always so nice when the weather cooperates.  Are you sure that "dip" won't correct itself when it settles?

            one side is even... the other is dipping down on the right side.  I can tell because it doesn't line up with the fence.  It will totally drive me bananas if I don't fix it.  Since I haven't even gotten top soil to put in there, I have time yet.  Besides which, it's still too early for summer veggies.

            gah.  as a kid I sure wished I could wiggle my nose and make things happen in an instance!!!  :D

          cloudy and windy all day, constantly looking like it's going to rain any second.  But there's been no rain, and it was 71° when I got home from work!  :-)  It was warmer outside than it was inside the house.

          I have the kitchen door and a living room window open to the screen porch, and the pooties are really enjoying the fresh air.  

          When I got home, the water in the bird bath was almost gone and what was left was filthy.  So I washed it out and filled it back up.  By the time I got in the house, there literally was a line of birds using it and waiting to use it!  Finches, starlings, robins, grackles.  LOL.
