The Yard is Done, #1Liner Wednesday

Fall brings about a flurry of cleaning projects to get ready for winter and I am on a time schedule. So the last 2 days I have not touched my computer much other than to read some of your wonderful stories. But alas, it is all done….outside. Thanks to Alternative Design Landscapes Specialist out of Bettendorf Iowa I have new steps and a new wall that were rotting railroad timbers and a new mailbox to keep the mailman happy and Mimi less stressed.

And while that was going on, the plumber came out to fix a leaky outside faucet before it got cold and I got all the flower bed cleaning done. All in all a busy but productive two days. Now I can sit on the sofa and play on the computer while watching the birds eat and fight over the new bird feeders. They are so fun to watch. The feeder is close to the evergreens where they zoom to hid when spooked only to peek out to make sure all is clear before heading back to the feeders.

Mostly what I have are chickadees but this big fella enjoys the sunflower seeds as well.

Dirty windows too…work never ends

I clean the windows about every two weeks as Mimi loves looking out as well and leaves her nose and slobber marks. And of course we have to warn about the dreaded mailman. The ice box was added as an incentive to save the window seal.

Forever on guard

She is so funny as she looks around at me while she is barking like “Do you not see this?” In reality she is just a silly old lapdog baby.

Hard life

And in closing I remind myself and everyone else to be kind. It is a inexpensive gift from God that reflects His love.

All love can point to kindness

Come follow along with Linda G. Hill’s One Liner Wednesdays and enjoy the fun.

  1. Being kind is the most important thing we can choose to be. (And I can really relate to your noisy fur baby — I’ve got two that are convinced anyone walking by the house is preparing to storm the castle.)

    1. LOL. I even had a mysterious bag get caught in the bush near the house and with every breeze it moved. Had to retrieve it and put in trash for peace and tranquility.
