On a hot Sunday afternoon...

Yesterday, we spent the early afternoon working outside on our front and back yards. It might seem stupid to be working outside when the temperatures are soaring over the 90 degree mark. It would not have been my first choice for the day, but it needed to be done. Our poor backyard was so overgrown. There were weeds choking our flower garden and air conditioner units. The crepe myrtle was sprouting from the base. The Bradford pear tree was covering a complete corner of the yard. I am pleased to say that with 2 1/2 hours of effort, one yard waste bucket, 2 brown refuse bags, and many tools, the yard looks about a million times better. Even Sammy took notice. She went out and looked around like she had never seen the place before. A job well done feels very good indeed.
