Our heat wave hadn't yet started, but I knew it was coming. I wanted to get the grass cut before it got really hot. It really needed it.
I got out the weed whacker and went to work. My legs and back were hurting, and I had to sit down a few times, but when I was finished I thought it looked really nice.
It still needs a lot of work, but at least it's a start. I have to wait until it gets cooler before I can work out there again.
While I was in the yard I found my lilies. They are beautiful!
Here are all the bags of trash that were left in my yard by the cleaning lady. I am going through them one at a time (although today with the heat index over 100*F. (38*C.) I didn't). Most of what is in them is being recycled. Some is trash and some is being kept. Yesterday I found my wedding pictures in one of the bags. More of Joe's tools in there too. I admit that things were messed up and cluttered, but the pictures were in a pile on top of my desk. Here's the before.
And here's after I got rid of a bag. Another bag was gone through on Sunday so it looks even better now.
Joe was finally able to help me get the air conditioner in. I am so very thankful because I don't think I could have survived this heat without it.
In the afternoon I sat in the cool and worked on the top I am making for myself. It's about 1/3 finished as of yesterday.
For dinner I made barbecued pork chops, baked potatoes and a salad.
We had fresh strawberries for dessert.
Of course I worked on getting the bulletins printed, folded and ready to go for the next day.
I was tired and really ready to go to bed that night.
Thanks for coming along on my day. It was fun to have you with me. Hope you all have a good evening.
