    What a Day

    Ladybug finished the dishes! It took her a full 5 hours to get two sinks full done, but she was SO happy when she had finally completed the job that she ran around the house whooping and hugging people, then proceeded to skip back towards her room humming, whereupon she promptly kicked the wall and hopped around on one foot alternately yowling and laughing at herself. *chuckle*

    It rained on and off all day, but we still got a lot done in the yarden. More planters have been sprayed, drilled, filled, planted, and arranged on the roof.

    Flo accidentally busted our hose throwing rocks in it's general direction, while digging the catchment pond area that is now is almost finished being dug.

    More carrots and lettuces have been planted in the rooftop planters.

    We put up the green wire fencing we found on the side of the road the other day and planted edible flowers around it's base.

    I set up the rickety wooden children's table & chair set that we found next to a different trash can in a different yard on the same day in our front yard and planted pole beans next to the legs in the hopes that they will become edible sculptures instead of wooden garbage.

    Keebler cleaned out some of our gutters while sitting on the slanted roof of our house, harvesting quite a bit of lovely compost, which I used to mulch around the peonies I planted in the neighbor's front yard while I was planting the daffodils over there that we got from a friend last week, so the neighbor can have more spring color next year.

    Oh! I almost forgot that we also planted about 50 native garlics, Keebler got the bunny cages hung, and we finally bred the rabbits again.

    We also went to the library and had a bit of fun while picking up some books we had on hold after all the work was done and we'd had our showers (we were really muddy).

    Ladybug did eventually end up going with her grandmother to stay for a couple of days to help her out with a few things around the house (for pay) again.

    I am sore and tired, but it's a good thing today, because I earned my sore and tired, fair and square! *grin*

    Photos coming soon!
