Vacation mode

As of 5 pm yesterday….

I am on vacation for a week!

And as much as I’d like to spend all of it with my feet up, cat in my lap, and knitting in my hands, there are things to do.

  • Yard work – There’s the usual maintenance, but I also want to get a start on the beginnings of Willow Grove (laying out beds vs non-bed areas) There’s also one corner of the yard the needs some cleaning up and filling in.
  • Range safety test – Since I’m so far from Dad now, and can’t just pick up and go shoot with him, I joined a shooting range near here. Tomorrow morning I have to go do a range safety test and prove that I can shoot at a target without putting anyone else in jeopardy. Once that’s done, I can practice my marksmen skills whenever I want.
  • Furniture transport – One of the biggest projects of the week is heading back down to Dave’s Grandma’s house. We are taking some of the furniture (a couple hutches, some dressers, and possibly some display cabinets) from the house. We’d wanted to take them the day we picked up the Charger, but their were no trailers available for rent that weekend. (my little box trailer is too small). I’m hoping it’s the last time we have to make that drive – not only is it a tough one (long and on very busy highways), but it’s hard on Dave going back to the house without his grandma there any more.

Still, despite things that have to be done, I should be able to fit in some good time to stitch, knit, sew, paint and kickback. There’s even talk of checking out a car show next weekend.

In the meantime, here’s a quick peak of the state of the gardens this week.

  1. I went to high school in the town of Willow Grove in Pennsylvania. My mom grew up there.

    Hope you have a great vacation week with lots of time to do the things you WANT to do.
