Man Toy

Last night I noticed something that gives me the creeps and that was a whole nest of Spiders directly outside our front door.  I wasn't long getting Rob and the Raid.  This morning I got the broom and cleaned the whole dead mess off the shutter.  YECH I hate Spiders !!!!  ewwwww


Rob and I have lots of work cut out for each of us each and every day.  The problem is trying to fit it all in when Rob can between calls, and I between commitments.  Tomorrow I have Dentist and Thursday a followup appointment with a Specialist.  

Today was a lovely day, so I left the mess inside the house, to take advantage of trying to deal with the mess outside the house.

While I got my Tools out, gardening gloves, Japanese Hoe and pruners, Rob got Shovel, Chainsaw and Wheelbarrow together.  I was gong to begin tackling the front garden of perennials while Rob put some support posts underneath our top deck.  Rob did well getting done what he started out to do finished, and I got a good dent in the garden even though it really isn't too noticeable at the moment.


Early this morning I had gotten some Portulaca for the front containers, and planted a Begonia into the cat planter I had spray painted yesterday, I also added some Trailing Lobelia later.  I also was happy to see the Straw Flowers had finally taken hold in their container.  Bandit?  he was way over yonder under the largest Maple Tree's shade.


Funny thing Rob just sold an older model Riding Tractor recently.  Aunt Gladys called yesterday saying her neighbour had a fairly new Lawn Tractor for sale, were we interested.  Rob and I headed on down to Port Elgin after 5 pm today to take a look.  Two other people were going to be looking at it later, however that would never happen as ....

Rob made a deal, loaded it up and  brought it on home.  Another "man toy".  Needless to say some of our lawn was cut this evening before our Dinner was ready when we finally got to sit down to eat just before 9 pm.  I hope this Lawn Tractor does us for awhile, as it is only 6 years old.  We have so much lawn that needs cutting.  Thanks for thinking of us Aunt Gladys and Uncle Basil.


Walking by the shed I noticed the Baby Robins had left the nest.  I was also reminded the garden directly below still needed some TLC ... another day.


Psssst ... I was happy with learning some "special' news, this being that my beautiful young talented Blogger Friend, Lena, shared recently.  You may read all about that HERE.

A little bit of Aussie *smiles*?  check it out HERE.

Both Rob and I had a busy day as per usual.  We were both happy for what we had accomplished this day.

Tomorrow is a new day with hopefully another good dent in getting more done, Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard.
