Yesterday couldn’t have been more fabulous. A gorgeous seventy degree day, with big fluffy clouds in the sky, and a nice breeze. I took some cookies over to my mom, changed her clocks for her, played a quick game of Scrabble and finished up with a mile walk together.
Afterwards, I continued on for another three miles on my own, and breathed in the beauty around me.
When I got home, I potted a few fresh herbs. Curly leaf parsley, cilantro, and the basil plant (what was left of it) that I’ve kept in a window all winter, then did more weed whacking and some of the mowing.
And then I set out to finish clearing the last blackberry row, and it is done! Woohoo! What a job that has been. I don’t know what was worse, cutting all those horribly tangled brambles out, or then cutting them into manageable sections, bundling them, and hauling them off to the creek.
I’m trying to decide if I want to really kill myself and pull up the landscape fabric. I will never ever use that stuff anywhere again. Cardboard in the future only!
I took a break for a bit and let Siri out to play. She so loves a sunny day, but with her long coat I don’t let her out much, and never unsupervised. She found something intriguing in the irises.
After going to get my mail, when I turned around the sun was in the west, and the Cleveland pear next to the house was practically glowing.
It was a lovely a day, and when I finally went inside and poured myself a glass of wine, I sat down to catch up on Facebook, and realized how quickly my mood changed, and decided it was time to cut it out of my life. It’s been less than a month since I had to start taking blood pressure medicine, and they’ve already more than doubled my dose. Maybe this will help 🙂
