Yesterday was supposed to rain but when I got up it looked not too bad outside. I figured if I wanted to do any outdoor work I should get right at it. So I scraped the old flaky paint off my window frames and got new paint on. It looks so much better.
Now I think I should repaint those red rails to white and instead paint the front door a color. I'll mull that over for a few days. After the paint was done I still had some energy left so I thought I'd try and dig out those old roots and shrubs. I started with the old rose bush and after a lot of digging and pulling I managed to get it out. Feeling cocky I thought I could get the potentilla out by myself with my tiny little shovel. I saw a bunch of dead twigs near the base and went to scoop them up with my hands and that's when it happened........the thing that led me to quit and have a drink
I grabbed a twig but it wasn't a twig. It was a leg of a dead bird! Ewwwwwwwww I have got to get some thick gardening gloves. And this is just one of the reasons I hate to garden. Lol.
In less disgusting news, Abby got a new shirt specifically to wear when she visits Auntie's house. She manages to get in so much trouble there. Lol
