We have so much work in front of us in regards to clearing our yard of the things the city is complaining about it isn't funny. We have spent two or three hours on it every night after work (if it isn't a knitting or band night) and have had our gardening expert friend come over for help and advice. She thinks that even if we had a crew of ten working on it, it would take more than a month to clear of weeds, shrubs, vines, etc. And I already know that the landscapers I've called have all said that they are fully booked and have no appointments available until September or October. And it certainly isn't helping that June was inordinately hot and that July is shaping up to be more of the same. We can only do a few hours before we're exhausted from the work and the heat. Today's scrapbook page shows what we could accomplish in two hours of steady work, a dent in the wall of green between our garage and the fence. If it isn't raining when we get home from work tonight we'll go out again. That is a big if though as the forecast calls for rain.
In other news, my mom was well when I talked with her last week. On Saturday we played a Virtual First Saturday Ingress event in the morning, went out and worked in the yard for two hours, then came in, got cleaned up and then went to Ann Arbor for SEMGS. This was the first time we've all been together in person for months & months (and true to form I forgot to take a single photo). We ate, we talked, we had a very pleasant visit and then we drove home and went to bed. On Sunday I hosted the Stitch & Bitch session but due to it being the 4th of July, I was the only one who dialed in. I kept the zoom session up for the full two hours but also turned on the tv, watched a recording of Midsomer Murders, and finished up another cat bed bed.
Last night was Knitting Guild's Social Knitting Zoom where I had fun talking with my Guild Sisters and finished knitting the chemo cap I've been working on for the past week or three.
