Looking back….

“You’ve come a long ways, Baby!”  A few comparison pictures. Sometimes I’m so discouraged because the enhancement of this property seems endless. It’s good to see the progress. Furthermore: Fresh air and great exercise!!


Another “Fry day”

Millions of people in the United States suffering from extreme heat. I’m just noting the fact. My eggs (free range, organic) are too precious to throw away. However, I speculate I could fry eggs on my driveway!


Only one picture of “droopy” plants but all are wilted. A lesson for Lorraine: Can’t skip a day in the yard.

Mystery !!


Pray tell, how could a colony of ants live in the fire barrel when there ar e frequent raging fires burning trash and debris?? When I turned over the barrel and started raking ashes, my feet were attack by hundreds of ants. (Wearing barefoot sandles this morning because I’m not planning on yard work. Doing laundry, instead.)

Recycle and/or relinquish ?!?!

The empty fertilizer bag (yesterday) was only one of many items I’m using in my campaign to downsize. Two bags of fertilizer and one bag of plant food were conspicuous among the overwhelming clutter I was forced to live with when I moved here in December 2017. Who knows? Those bags may be ancient because this RV site was unoccupied for years. Likewise, the container of ant poison was here when I arrived. Who knows how old? Now it is empty and in the trash bag. I added my own ant poison purchase hoping one, or both, will kill the fire barrel residents. ~~ Broken bottles will eventually go to a recycling center.

Did you know that Lowe’s accepts used nursery plant containers? Recently I took a large garbage bag full of containers to my local store. ~~ I recycle grocery plastic bags, too. Do you? ~~ Today is scheduled to be a “relaxing” day because  yesterday’s project–and the heat–robbed me of energy and willpower.

KIA in the “karport” !!

Play on words (lol): “K” in “karport”  for KIA. It’s comforting to have it back home after tune-up and thorough check-up. I don’t drive it often but comforting to know I can go shopping at a whim. I can purchase bags of concrete; I can haul containers of pea gravel; pile it high with donations for a charitable organization. ~~ Force of habit: Reference to weather.

Somebody’s gotta do it !!

Somebody’s gotta do it.  Have you seen the TV program with that name? Find Mike Rowe on TBN. I echo his sentiment because “help”  is hard to find and I’m determined to get some of the projects done. I hasten to clarify: “Help”  for Lorraine’s yard work projects is hard to find so Lorraine’s gotta do it. ~~ Time was spent on the computer researching a resolution for refrigerator problem but I needed a break. (An “outdoor” break.)
