yesterday and today
First thing this morning I kicked the door jamb. I think I broke my toe. OK, not really but it hurts like hell. Still. We're dog sitting my sister's dog while she is in London for two weeks and as soon as I got out of bed I let them out in the Little Backyard. It had rained last night so the ground was wet and Minnie's first reaction was to head back in the door. I didn't mean to kick the door jamb. I meant to impede her progress back into the house. This was after she decided we had slept long enough and was doing her fake sneeze thing she does to get attention when bouncing around us on the bed doesn't work.
Yesterday was another day spent out in the yard. I did some pruning on an althea and cut more gone by ginger stalks and pulled out the mistflower that was taking over a spot where I didn't want it as well as the wild petunias that were crowding my rosemary bush that doesn't look so great.
I did fire ant remediation with the soapy/orange oil water and I used the trimmer around the culverts and the beds in the front yard. I planted a flat of pansies and moved the buddha forward and added another row of bricks to his platform since the wandering jew with the little white flowers was starting to overcome him.
I finally spread out the sandstone slabs that formed a walkway through the yard to the driveway at the old city house that have been waiting, stacked up for me to lay them out here but I decided that was a project for another day.
Since it was supposed to be a rainy day today it wasn't we decided to go to the movie to see Dr. Strange which was really good and definitely worth the extra for 3-D. In fact if you don't see it in 3-D then you are missing some really great effects. If you are a Marvel fan then you probably already know this but Marvel adds scenes during and at the end of the credits so it's usually worth sitting through them even if you have to pee really really bad like I did. And, there is going to be a new Guardians Of The Galaxy movie coming out next summer which explains why the first one showed up on TV the other night. And a new Wolverine movie coming next year as well!
OK, I'm off to yoga.
