Yard Day
Nope, not yard as in fabric....yard as in, pulling weeds, hauling mulch, etc. No pictures right now...maybe tomorrow.

Got a delivery of 10 yards of shredded cedar mulch Thursday afternoon. Was too sick to do anything about it yesterday so I decided to try my hand today. Well, was breathing a bit easier today so I grabbed my bag of newspapers and headed to the sitting area of the flower beds. This area was pretty much cleared of weeds a week ago when I went on a rampage and got most of the large flower bed cleaned out (and paid dearly for it the next two days...why do I always do that?). So, I loaded up a 5 gallon bucket with mulch, walked the length of the house, laid out the paper, dumped the bucket....kept this up for an hour. Finally ran out of papers in the bag so decided to quit for a while (besides, I needed to switch laundry from the washer to the dryer and put another load in the wash). Have decided that the bucket method is just too slow so I have now hooked up my 117 cu. ft. trailer to my garden tractor and it is 2/3rds loaded. However, I am so sadly out of shape and I don't want to end up a wreck tomorrow so, I am calling it a day. Hopefully I will be able to get the area along the house and under the spruce done and then around the iris. The tulip beds will have to wait......this big bed ends up overrun every year. I go to QSDS for a week or more and the weeds have a party. I get back all fired up to work on quilts, take one look at the garden, and run for the studio. Well, not this year. Of course first, I am not going to QSDS because Convergence starts the day I would be driving back and it takes me about two days to recover from the drive. So, I can do Convergence and still pull weeds in the evening. BUT, if the paper with 3" of cedar mulch does the job, I won't have to pull weeds! Instead I can light the fire pit and kick back with an ice cold Molson and admire my garden, listen to the wind chimes and the birds and the bugs......

So, no fiber work until Monday when I have to scour and dye the 4 yd., 30 sett, 15" wide warp for my next weaving project.....

Quote:Apples and Wine: Women are like apples on trees. The best ones are at the top of the tree. Most men don't want to reach for the good ones because they are afraid of falling and getting hurt. Instead, they sometimes take the apples from the ground that aren't as good, but easy. The apples at the top think something is wrong with them, when in reality, they're amazing. They just have to wait for the right man to come along, the one who is brave enough & smart enough to climb all the way to the top of the tree. Now Men... Men are like a fine wine. They begin as grapes, and it's up to women to stomp the hell out of them until they turn into something acceptable to have dinner with.
