A relatively productive Friday

A response in avoidance of the Daily Post’s Writing Prompt https://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_prompt/the-heat-is-on/

After sanding the other half of the room (I have a few more divots to fill again, and sand again, so no priming yet…sigh…) I took a break, and then went outside and tackled on of the overgrown shrubs in the front yard.

Here is before:

Here is after


And what was cut down


Now you can see how pitiful the OTHER shrub looks behind the old one.  So, now I need to finish taking out the stump and then tackle the other pitiful shrub.  Then I promised Kevin we can replace those with a nice colourful Hydrangea.  That will look MUCH better.  After the second pitiful shrub, I have another to tackle on the other side of the front yard near the neighbours.  It’s mostly dead, so it’s coming out.  Then the California lilacs.  Then I have to prune everything else that’s staying.  Phew!

Now, for some assorted kitty pictures taken yesterday





And my dessert from lunch.  Don’t know why.  I just felt like taking a picture of my cherries.


Then, finally, the sunset last night was amazing!  So I had to take shots of it as we were out on the deck BBQing, well, as I was sitting on the deck with a glass of wine watching Kevin BBQ, that is.


Here’s the sunset from the front of the house

And here it is from the back





The end of a good day.
