Yard Works Makes GREAT Exercise!!

Louis Dean and I PLANNED to go to the center and do our walking this morning. However, the weather was so mild and the ground was soft so we decided to spend several hours in the front yard. We accomplished quite a bit! I trimmed ALL the spent roses from the heavy laden climbing vines, pulled up some weeds, put out some turf builder on the lawn, tried to pull up the mint that was choking some of our other plants, swept up a trash bag FULL of beards from the pecan tree AND edged the yard as well!!

The edger is our only GAS operated piece of awn equipment!
All the rest is electric.

Louis Dean is so much fun!
Between the two of us we got several jobs DONE!!

By the time our work was done it was time to get ready for a night at the movies!
And an EXCELLENT movie it was!!
Louis Dean says, "I LOVE good acting!" so I thought this, of all movies offered lately, would be one he would like! I was right.

Now it is time to water in that turf builder stuff we put out and have our evening glass of wine before putting the house to bed.....which means turning off the many little lights I have, give Lucy her medicine and take her for a walk around the block, make sure all the doors are locked and the candles are blown out, give the cat a good brushing, get the coffee ready for in the morning.......this routine takes a bit of time.
I will close this post with one of my favorite verses......

Thou makest the outgoings of the morning and evening to rejoice.

Psalm 65:8
