Glorious Day! 

Thursday was possibly the most glorious day ever!

The temperature was a fabulous 72 degrees and the sun was shining like mad. Of course I spent all afternoon outside!! There was no sitting around either. I got TONS of stuff done.
First I trimmed back the pampas grass because it was dead and out of control. I looked up how to care for it and luckily you are supposed to chop it all off in March in this area. If it is over 5 years old they recommend you burn it to make it flourish, but I have no clue how old this one is.
I also cleaned out from under all the hedges in the front of house. They were pretty sad looking.
Next I cleaned out two small flower beds. Both had mulch in them that had to be at least 10 years old. I also found an insane amount of garbage buried in them. Nasty!
After that I talked the bushes along the side of the house. I had to cut out a bunch of the stalks because they had totally taken over the sidewalk along side them. There was a big piece of plastic under them and when I tried to lift it up I found a bajillion rolly-polly bugs. I will admnit that I freaked and put the plastic back. Ap0k, bless his heart, got rid of it for me when he got home. .I can deal with bugs in small numbers, but a bajillion is just too many for me.
Being the hard head that I am, I then went in the back yard and raked up all the old leaves and dead grass. After awhile I began to think I had lost my mind. I spent all winter typing, washing dishes, and doing laundry. All the physical labor today really knocked me out.
Oh yeah, I also cleaned the garage.
I am sitting here now with a cramped up back, sliced up fingers, and a wrenched knee. I LOVE IT!!!!!

There is something I am going to have to get used to though. Ohio actually has dirt. Dirt is slimy! I am used to Florida sand. With sand you can just stomp your feet and it’s gone. Today I tracked dirt all over the kitchen. Also the dirt is full of worms. I probably saw 5 worms total in the 12 years I lived in my last house. I’m not afraid of worms, but I really don’t like grabbing a handful of dirt and squishing a worm in my fingers. Blech!

Even though I am sore, I wouldn’t have traded the day for any other. Messing in the yard for 5 ½ hours in perfect weather. What more could I ask for?
