Time Out

I was weeding my yard this weekend since it finally cooled down a bit. Okay, cool is an exaggeration but I could go out there without passing out in five minutes. Over the past few weeks I haven’t been able to say that so this weekend was it. After this it’ll be one more time to get ready for winter. As much as I enjoy my flowers I do so love the sound of that.

Yesterday was uneventful. I quit because I used the last trash bag. Yeah, I know. Supposed to check that first, before starting to work but it was still hot and I was sweaty so it seemed a good excuse to go in.

Today, after going to the store, I was determined to finish. I did the hard part yesterday so it should have been easy. Well it was for the most part but there’s a little section I didn’t get weeded.

Why not? No, I’m not lazy. I ran into a snag and it won. Now I know what’s been making the magnificent webs I’ve been seeing all summer. I decided I upset it enough, destroying all its handiwork and it seemed somewhat agitated so I left it in peace for the afternoon. I did give fair warning that I’d be back next weekend to finish and suggested it move to a patch I’ve already weeded so hopefully it will.

My garden is in dire need of work. But the kids refuse to help and my legs have been swollen for the past month so I can't bend down to do it like I used to. I'm either going to have to hire someone or get rid of my garden.
