Sure is quiet with just me and Pumpkin at home. Andree is building memories on a mother-daughter trip to the Maritimes. I am really happy for her. What a treat!
I kept myself pretty busy all day. I did take time to do some writing this morning which was super nice to do. Then I spent most of the morning trimming and cutting broken limbs off our two maple trees out front. There was more to do than I thought. Took a while to do the cutting then hauling it all to the town disposal place.
After that I attacked the ant nests that are all over our lawn with a second round of chemicals. I thought maybe I had the problem licked after my first go at them last night but there was still some running around in those huge mounds of dirt this afternoon. If I don't get this under control they are going to walk away with our whole house soon. I never like killing things but sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do. Pumpkin thought she'd stay out of harms way and keep an eye on things to make sure I did a good job.
Cooked myself a good supper tonight out on my back yard fire pit. Only when it's pouring out do I eat inside now that summer is here. I never stay in the house any longer than I have to.
I kind of defeated the benefit of my exercise when I decided to head out to town for a soft ice-cream after. Oh well, all in all, it was a pretty good Sunday.
