Today has been a very long day but with a lot of good stuff happening.  I was up at 5:30AM so that I’d be all set after feeding my fur friends and then having my time in the sauna, hot tub, shower before Paco and his guys came to work on my yard.  They have been working hard all day and in fact, at 8PM they are still here!  A ton of weeds were pulled, a number of dead shrubs and trees were removed, and plants that had taken off and taken over were also removed.  After all that, then 20 yards of lovely bark are being spread as I type.  The yard looks so fabulous now!  I really like Paco’s Landscaping!  They didn’t get everything done, so I’ll have them back again at their earliest opportunity, but everything that I can see from the house is now taken care of, and I am most relieved.  I even found a good home for my strawberries, which actually aren’t my favorite in the first place and which I can’t bend down to pick in the second.  And Paco was also pleased to get a number of my pots which I have no interest in or ability to maintain.  So all in all, it has been a good day.  I went to a therapy appointment and also tutored a student.  I gave him his quilt today as he will be graduating this Saturday.  I finished one puzzle and then started another (Dr. Who) but I realized that it was going to be a real killer to complete.  I couldn’t even get the border together as there was nothing to identify.  So I put that one away and I’ll give it to a friend for her garage sale.  Someone with more patience and skill may enjoy it.  Instead, I started a mermaid puzzle and I now have the border finished.  I’m going to feed my fur friends as Paco and his guys finish up.  After that I’ll have my sauna and hot tub time followed by my dinner.  Thank heavens I don’t have to be anywhere until 1PM tomorrow!
