Today was one of those really nice days of just being home and getting stuff done. First I relaxed with a large pot of coffee and planned our meals for the week, and decided what seeds to plant next.
Then the dogs and I all went outside to clean up our backyard which was rather a mess. I haven't been out there as much as I should recently, and it is amazing how much stuff had accumulated out there.
The grass looks awful since it stopped getting water, although I feel much better about that of course. We are definitely going to take it all out in the spring and xeriscape the whole area. I can't wait!
Tex is completely back to normal and is up to his old tricks of digging through the woodpile and the rocks, and running around chasing all the other dogs. Love it!
The girls came out and helped me to plant some beets, tomatoes, cilantro, dill, and lettuces.
After that they played for a while. Emmie is going through that stage of changing her outfit seven times a day and obviously felt that her swimming suit was suitable attire for the lovely weather we are having!
Then I planted out a succulent that I inherited from a friend. It has been potted until now, and I am interested to see how it will do.
I would be remiss if I didn't mention the Cardinals and their great performance in the game today. I don't claim to be a die hard Cardinals fan, unlike Robert who has supported them through good times, and many not so good over the years. He is ecstatic at the prospect of them going to the Superbowl, and I have to admit to feeling secretly proud myself.
