Abi is getting her teeth cleaned today. She’s lucky to still have all her teeth. Charlie just has two.
These dogs get better dental care than I do. But then, that’s what mama’s do, isn’t it? Put the babies first.
I was out on the patio yesterday. It was cooler and there was a soft rain.
Now that the gazebo is gone, I feel the need to move things about. Isn’t that what we woman often do when one thing is changed? We want to change the rest?
Well, I tend to do that anyway.
I noticed that these two yellow-gold pots sure seemed to have a lot of water in the top. I took a garden tool and started scooping some of the water out.
Then a thought occurred to me. Had I ever used these pots before? Because I’ve had them several years.
I couldn’t recall, so I looked underneath and there were no holes for drainage. How did I manage to miss that?
I wasn’t about to take everything out. So I went inside and got a Philips screw driver and sat on my garden seat and punched out the indented holes for drainage from underneath the planter they are in.
When I go outside to do something, I end up doing something else.
I can go out with my little garden clippers to snip something. Then before I know it I’m moving a pot or putting bricks under it or doing something else.
I don’t know if it’s my attention span, or that my eyes roam around and see something else that needs done. So I tend to do a little of this, a little of that while I’m out there.
The other morning I woke up to a scratching noise. I couldn’t figure out what it was.
I finally honed in on the sound being near the bedroom window. I pulled the blinds up and there was this little bird clutching the screen.
I figure it may have been in the midst of flight training. I went out there and was going to see if I could figure out where it came from, but it flew off to the tree before I got close.
I could tell it hadn’t been flying long, because it didn’t stay up in the air very long.
Well, guess I best get to doing something.
Empty the bird bath. Fill it back up. See if anything needs my attention. Take my garden snippers and see if anything needs snipping.
