.....And Fall is Officially Here....Finally
Posted on Oct 28, 2018 9:15 PM

The past 4 days have been rainy and chilly. I think we have at least 3 to 4 inches of rain, as of this post! Blinking

Today was windy and rainy (pouring, at times) and 40 degrees. Blinking Blinking Ryker and I welcomed Trick or Treaters, while he and I sat on the porch. Lovey dubby I was cold to the bone, when I came in the house Glare Sighing!

DH worked today for some OT doe.......came home, ate, and he's out like a light. Lovey dubby Lovey dubby

We're supposed to reach the mid 50's this week, so I'm hoping to get out and finish Fall cleanup and winterizing. Crossing Fingers! Crossing Fingers!

Finally Fall Cleanup Ensues!!
Posted on Oct 28, 2018 9:08 PM

On October 24th, I got outside and worked for the first time, since we got Ryker! Hurray! I tied him up on the run, let Jasper out, and started cleanup. The old tree garden was the worst, in back, so it was mostly weeding and redefining and hand trimming the edging Glare , but also removing leftover scapes from the late blooming DL's, and giving them a "haircut". I still have the center area of the tree garden to finish weeding, but I was running on an empty stomach, literally, and thought it best to get inside and eat, and save the center for another day (hopefully today) and then mulch. It takes a bit of a balancing act to work in the center, which isn't good to try when one is shaking from starvation. Blinking Hilarious! Hilarious!

I also hand trimmed and weeded along the garage and hand trimmed and gave the DL's a second haircut in half of the family garden. So there's the Kennel garden DL's to re-trim, the NE tree garden to weed and hand edge, and weeding around other plantings, to finish off the back yard. Then it's on to the same in the front, and then storing the hoses and yard deco, fertilizing the evergreens, and wrapping the tender evergreens, and then I'll be done! Hurray! Hurray!

Ryker was very busy trying to chase Jasper and digging the ground. Jasper and Osciver teased Ryker by standing just beyond where he could reach them, and it drove him absolutely crazy! Sometimes they'd run past him, and he had a ball with them, and Jasper did his usual fly by's with me. Lovey dubby Lovey dubby

All in all, it was a productive day, and a good time was had by all! Smiling

Since Piccolo's sudden passing, on July 23rd, I'm so heartbroken, I have no desire to do anything, not even outside. 😢😢😢
