I woke up to this today…
No electricity, cable and electric lines down, chainsaws and strange men in MY yard…with almost no notice. We knew the tree was coming down, but didn’t know when. Our neighbor, who was apparently informed of all the details, denied knowing anything when telling us the tree would come down “sometime soon.” We have suspected for a while he’s not playing with a full deck. The tree guy later confirmed the date had been set a week ago. Of course, he didn’t call me back and only called H late yesterday and left a message. Because H thought it was a telemarketer call, he ignored it. So, I had little warning.
So, now the big Mulberry…my neighbor insisted it was a cottonwood…nope…confirmed (just for grins) by the tree guy…is gone, leaving us a fabulous view of…
the ugly building behind. Oh, well, the tree was falling apart while also growing up into the lines. We can’t have that.
The whole ordeal was, honestly, a fitting end to a tiresome week where everything felt off and nothing really seemed to go smoothly.
Anyway, the electricity was off the bulk of the day. Once most of the work was done, I spent a couple hours in the back yard with the ducks and the cats. So far they are co-existing pretty well. Weanie is funny. She knows the ducks are off limits, but couldn’t help herself and ran fast towards us in a big sweeping circle. I’m chasing the ducks…nooooo…not really….psyche…
This was a bit of my time with the ducks yesterday.
They like staying close to me. The chairs are on boards to keep them from sinking into the ground. We’ve had a lot of rain.
I put out the old litter box full water since they probably weren’t going to go in their pen for the water there.
All three of them will climb in. It’s pretty funny.
They really love to forage. It is quite relaxing to be in their presence.
I did have photos of my pillow progress, but they are being held hostage at the moment by my ipad and I cannot retrieve them. So, I’ll leave you with some views from the park today where I ate lunch.
There are so many things blooming right now, the air smells like flowers.
Enjoy your weekend!
