That’s right! Another hellish week of meetings and long days means that I have Friday off again. So you get a list to wear you out and I get it to keep me organized and on track.
The list is going to be all outdoorsy, as J is coming back for his second day of working. He is bringing Mom and B with him – Mom is feeling much better, she says, so that will be fun.
While he works on the pathway, and I make sure he has everything he needs, I have a few other chores I want to get done.
I need to put up the trellises for the sweet peas and morning glories to climb – they sprouted and are growing fast.
I need to climb off the deck into the rugosa roses and cut down the little volunteer trees that are growing there.
There is a bench that needs a new wooden brace, which is pretty easy in theory, I might ask B to do it. We have to have things to keep him occupied. 🙂
Not sure I will do it, but there is weed whacking in the back yard (we don’t mow, we just chop down the weeds when they grow more than a couple of feet tall. They are sparse in the sand.)
The pool water is looking nice and clear which means I need to get in and stir it all up. 😦 That is a good thing to do on a hot day. We have had a lot of rain this week, and I think that it helps to clear out the pollen and junk from the water, somehow. Anyway, it is all on the bottom and I can SEE the bottom, so progress is clearly being made.
I’ll fix them all some lunch in the late morning, and when they finish working, we will get delicious local take out for an early supper to thank them for all their hard work.
I fully intend to take a nice cool shower and a long nap when they leave, just as A did last week.
A has to work, so she will be missing all the fun.
By this time tomorrow, we might have a nice new garden path and a few more chores done around the place.
