I. Am. Exhausted. ! ! ! 🙂
But very happy with my progress – lookity lookity!
And with a grand total of roughly 650 logs having been moved from one stack to t’other, I can now definitely see a dent in the pile – here’s the ‘before’ shot again, taken at 8.26am this morning, with an ‘after’ shot taken at 6.16pm this evening:
Lookin’ good, huh?? 🙂 🙂 🙂
And Henry Lee slept through it all – so much for him being my Chief Cheerleader and Sideline Supporter – ha! I might just have to dock his wages and tell him he has to find his own supper tonight …
Fading beauty …
Apart from stacking logs for most of today, I did take some time out to photograph some dead flowers (yellow roses and white fresias) on my windowsill … I know, it doesn’t sound very exciting, does it? But because they’ve been sitting in the sun every day since 22 February, when I bought them, it’s almost as if they’ve been dried, keeping all their petals and just losing their colour (although the leaves have kept theirs): here, have a look at these photos which I hope show what I mean:
(Ooh, look there’s a couple of aphids on that fresia – obviously not as dead as I thought it was!)
Don’t you think they have a sort of beauty? I like the way you can see all the veins and capillaries in the roses, and I love the colour they’ve gone. Sort of makes me even more reluctant to throw them out! 🙂
Well, having had such an energetic day I am more than ready to hit the sack tonight – I suspect I might have a little trouble moving when I wake up in the morning, the joints are starting to stiffen a little already! But I’m sure a few barrowloads will soon fix that 😉 The forecast is fine again for tomorrow, only 23°C – but then we did get up to 28°C today, and they only forecast 25°C, so I’m picking it’ll be much the same kind of a day, which suits me just fine.
Talk to you all again tomorrow – and I’m still waiting to hear how you’re going on the Stinky Pinkies …
