It's Monday, and why I need two cans of gas.
Yes, it's Monday and I'm exhausted. What do I do when I'm tired? I generally get busy. Some people take naps. Later, when it's time for bed, I'll get my second wind. *Sigh* it just works that way for me.
I got an early start and went to Panera's. I've decided I like their lattes better than Border's or Starbucks. Plus I like that they have a frequent buyers club and you only have to purchase 6 drinks to get one free. I redeemed mine for a large caramel latte with an extra shot of espresso. I stayed for a while, then drove the mile or two to see my mom. I cut her hair then we were off to do errands. First stop, B.J.'s for a chaise lounge and two sling chairs. Next was Walmart, and I ran in to get the things on her list. After that we ate at the buffet. It was wonderful. My mother said if it weren't for me, she'd never get out to lunch. I told her I enjoy it as much as she does. I brought her home right before her show started, and went on my way. A stop at the grocery store, then I was home, and feeling very tired and sluggish. That's when I decided to try out the power washer.
Nice, huh? It belongs to my neighbor Kelly. She gave me a tutorial yesterday on how to use it. It takes a lot of gas. I borrowed it mainly to try to clean all the mildow or algae or whatever is on the siding on the side of my house. And to clean up my sidewalk. I didn't realize how dirty it was. Here's what I've done so far:
It's actually fun to use, but slow going.
While I had my camera out, I took this picture of my neighbor's forsythia. I love seeing it in other people's yards. I think it's a messy shrub, but it sure is beautiful to look at.
Talking about things in bloom, are there a lot of pear trees in your part of the country? It seems like it's the favorite tree of builders here in MD, and now there's forests of them all around. The birds must spread the seeds. They're everywhere, in full bloom.
Last picture of the day. Brad, this one's for you.
Not to be rude or anything, but.... - Today was chilly and rainy and beautiful. The earth is greening and color is staring to creep up the mountains, which make my morning hikes absolutely br...
