Productive yet enjoyable Sunday

June 10th, 2013 at 12:47 am

Canít say I ďrelaxedĒ today but I got a lot done and didnít go anywhere.

It was such a lovely day, in the 70s and sunny. I did yardwork from about 1:30 pm to 6 pm and I am pooped. I finished mowing the lawn. Then I decided to remove fencing from around 3 different shrubs, all viburnums. Theyíre to keep the deer from browsing too heavily, but Iím thinking they mostly leave them alone (?) in summer, when thereís more to eat elsewhere. Aside from having to look at ugly fencing (a combo of plastic and wire), itís a pain when you mow and also use the trimmer and the grass tends to get high and overgrown-looking.

So weíll see how that goes. I used the trimmer and things look much better. Also did some weeding here, there and everywhere and potted up some more sedums in one of my homemade hypertufa pots. I trimmed back another shrub that tends to grow into the driveway and scrape the side of the car if you're not careful.....Geez. Now I canít remember what else I did out there that took 4.5 hours, but I was mostly working.

I also made an edamame/corn/black bean/tomato cold salad for my lunches this week, along with a great fruit salad with mango, kiwi, organic peaches and organic strawberries. Those organic peaches are very hard to find, but they were at BJs. Peaches are one of the most heavily sprayed fruits, along with strawberries, so I figure itís money well spent.

Darned if I think I may have poison ivy again. Those tiny, tell-tale little bumps on my itchy left pinkie finger. I mostly wear gloves and in fact today washed myself with tecnu poison ivy soap like 4 times.

    It seems like a bad year for poison ivy. A friend of ours has been medically treated and is still miserable. Hope that is not the case with you.
