Yesterday and today have both brought 60 degree temps--whooooohhoooo!! I know all you Southern readers are shivering, but for us Northerners. . watch out! We are all revelling in the glory of this weather. Yesterday I began the major undertaking of cutting back our 10 privacy shrubs, bordering the back fence. "Shrub" is a bit of an understatement, as these poor tree-like creatures were grossly neglected by the previous homeowners, leaving me to cut away a good 8-10 years of neglect. I have 3 down, 7 to go.
It's so warm that I soaked through a sweatshirt and stripped down to a t-shirt, my arms now looking like I got into a fight with a cougar. But I couldn't care less! Just being outside working in the yard makes me an infinitely happier person. So inspired am I by the weather, I created the Master Yard Goals List this morning while drinking my coffee in the sunny spot at our kitchen table. The sunshine has even put the Mister in a good mood, who reviewed the list, nodding his head, enthusiastically asking me to arrange the list in order of importance.
I would post progress photos, but the computer is in the shop with a MotherBoard problem. Just being told that the MotherBoard blew up makes me giggle--I feel like I'm on Star Trek or something (Disclaimer: I have NEVER seen a full episode of Star Trek, so if I sound like an idiot, this should explain it.) Keep your fingers crossed that we fall in the 9 out of 10 category in terms of being able to retrieve all of our files.
