Spring Has Sprung And I'm Undone

We had a really productive day today. The weather is so pleasant that we just had to 'play' outside. :o)

Here's hubby burning debris that has gathered all around the property. The ashes can then be spread on various areas. Our soil is so acidic from the pines that using wood ashes 'sweetens' the soil. Flowers and centipede grass grow like crazy after spreading this around. And contrary to what some say, burning is good, for too many reasons to list here.

Maxie stopped to have a drink from the bird's little watering hole before I started ...

"Let's go Mommy! Make this thing move please."

... while Sam Jr. looked on ... riding in the golf cart is his favorite place when I'm working in the yard. Lucy, the boxer, is off somewhere chasing rabbits, real or imagined.

"It's Shake And Bake, and I heped!"

Remember that silly old commercial for Shake and Bake and the kid with the fake southern accent? That's what Maxie looks like she's saying. Yeah, she helped alright. Helped getting in the way! :o) Good thing she's so cute.

Now I'm tired from all that work. But, it's a good tired from achieving something and being productive.

Oh, and an FYI for anyone living in the SE Georgia / NE Florida area. There is a new classic country music station now and it is superb! The location on the dial is Country Legends 100.7 FM. I listen to it all the time. It's fun to listen to a song with a good Texas swing.

Sounds like you had a great day. It was beautiful here today, not too hot with a little breeze. I love your doggy helpers! Such sweet faces!

Another busy day making things beautiful. Well done!

Funny..see, I thought I was the only one whose animals thought or even talked to me, lololol. I swear, lately, Miss Spots, our Swiss Mountain Dog (we recently found out she is not a Bernese) seems to be telling us,"ARE YOU MOVING? ARE YOU TAKING US WITH YOU? OR IS THIS JUST A 3 FAMILY MEMBER OPERATION?" She and Lola are sure looking at us funny lately, lolol.

Waving to Steve, and the animals. Hey, Steve, you want to come on over and help burn and clean up the 4 acres at the new house? (I am sure Sparky is laughing at the one, lolol.)

Smiles and blessings

No that you've killed your manicure with all that hard work, I've just the thing for you - a day at the spa, in France on Tuesday. BE THERE!

I'm exhausted too and the manicure looks more like a manure-e-cure. ha ha

Need some down time just veggin' in front of the computer.

Thanks for stopping by y'all!! Doggies are wagging their tails HOWDY too. :o)
