1. I went to the shed and dragged out the deck furniture and put it on the deck. I know, She Who Must Be Heard will insist that it has to be cleaned, but I went ahead and sat on the resurrected deck swing and had 2 gin and tonics without first cleaning the cushions.
2. The neighbor man came out into his yard today and I noticed that he's walking more slowly and more decrepitly than last fall. I have to remember to practice not being decrepit or I'll be stumbling around half bent over, too.
3. We have a solitary Junco under our bird feeders right now. Doesn't she know it's still a long,long way to the Arctic? If she doesn't get a move on, she'll miss the mating season up there.
4. We hired someone to come this summer and fertilize our lawn and apply the weed control chemicals. I know this isn't hard work, but I don't want to do it anymore. I was never good at it anyway. I suppose the time will come when it's all outlawed in the name of ecology, and I won't care.
