...to talk of other things. Do you know that quote? It's from Alice in Wonderland and I use it with my kids all the time. Anyway, my hand is healing and I can actually type fine and bend my finger today...a big improvement.
I worked on the front yard for about 2 1/2 hours last night. I've been "meaning to" for over a month now and with everyone gone and Nina's Johnny Boy working fervently on their yard I decided last night was as good a time as any. I trimmed my tree and shrubs and actually took the weed eater to the flower bed. It was such a mess! Then I spread 10 bags of mulch. It looks much nicer and I think long term I'll just add some flowering shrubs and call it a day. I'm so bad about weeding!
Oh and a nasty interesting thing...I've notices this week during the cool damp of the mornings that we have slugs. Lots of them. I came out the other morning and 2 were hanging from a line of snot doing what I can only believe would make more slugs. So after mulching I put out 2 big bowls of beer and this morning had a bowlful to mourn. I won't bother shedding any tears for the slugs, but I will keep my beer bowls full for a few days. :)
