Today it is sunny in Pleasantville.

Literally sunny!  And a breezy 70's.  I showered, dressed and-brace yourself-I even did my hair and make-up.  I have all the make-up in the world and never ever wear it.  Well, look at me now!  Yes, I am going to work in the yard and get dirty and all that fun stuff....but I am going to look damn good doing it!  In fact, if you are in front of me while I am bent over working....you will probably get a glimpse of the "golden globes."  Oh yeah!

Maggie is getting better with me.  Or perhaps it is I who is figuring out how to deal with her.  I give her firm no if she bites.  It may take a couple of nos but then she starts licking me and I praise her telling her, "Nice licky, Good girl."  Hunter took her out to the farm with him.  She needs to have all that running around.  Hunter had to bring the rototiller and it is damn heavy.  But said he didn't want me helping him lift it into the back of the truck.  See.  There are good things and I require very little in the way of kindness.  To be sure, I know it doesn't excuse all the crap behavior. 

So....I need to get to cutting down my ornamental grass.  Perhaps we can get it moved before winter sets in.  If not, then we will do it in the spring.  I am anxious to move it because where it is now shades way too many of the flowers I have there and I can then also plant other flowers.  I will only plant part of it in a new spot as it needs it.  But I saw the same grass in some one's yard with about a 24" round thing around it.  It held the grass in place.  I am going to try to think of what I can use for this.  Not like a peony cage but something solid.

I am actually feeling peace and joy today and so....I wish you the same.

That sounds nice. Cleaning up for the winter is a lot of work. We hauled about 25 wheelbarrows out. Hmmm. Thinking about the ornamental grass cage. There are a lot of cute ideas on Pinterest for tomato cages. Are you on Pinterest?

I always did respect someone who could do yard and garden work, keep positive and really get into it. It sounds as though you had a great day. doesn't matter what ya look like on the outside, when you're getting dirty... just matters what you accomplish and how you feel about it at the end of the day. That is my way of thinking.

Take care, Middle Child
