Finally we got a break in the heat today so I decided to do some gardening. By the way I have finally found the definition for gardening vs yard work.
gardening= less than 1/2 green garbage barrel
yard work= at least one full green garbage barrel
1/2 to less than full garbage barrel is a sign of either non-commintment to yard work, or gardening run awry.
I wore myself out a little more than planned but rallied and still walked down to the Farmer’s Market to visit Birdie for a moment. Apparently the crazies are out today she had a God freak, a mind reader wanna-be, and apparently a couple more after I left ( not sure if she was including me in her count of 5 crazies 🙂 ). When I was leaving the Farmer’s market I noticed a cute dog out in someone’s open front yard, all by his lonesome. He was very interested in me and started walking towards the street to see me. I grabbed him before he walked onto the pavement, luckily he had a collar with his address on it. He was in his front yard, I think he had pulled a Houdini. I rang the door bell but no response, so I put him into the gated area of the house where there was an open backdoor. Poor little guy. I need all the good karma I can get with dogs, I’m surprised our neighbors will even say hello with how much Kate barks.
Also while I was walking home I noticed something wonderful. You know how I posted a few weeks back about how I wondered if people ever used the cute little porch set-ups I see in front of their houses or if it is all for show? Well today I saw a man reading a book on his porch, it made me very happy.
