...seeing that Jimbo had succumbed to the poison ivy after his sinus deal, I figured I should at least give it a try. Cin and Lauren had pulled a BUNCH of the nasty stuff from the edge of our patio, and left it in a pile. They both ended up with small spots - nothing too drastic. But I've never tested myself against it. So I went out this morning, boots, jeans, long sleeved shirt, and gloves and carted it off to the dumpster. I thought it would be a ten minute job. Um, not so much. Ended up working on for over 1/2 hour. Came right in, peeled off the clothes and gloves and jumped into the shower. Am REALLY hoping and praying that I don't get any nasties with the wedding closing on three weeks away.
With the pool in the yard and the backyard in shape, I think I've spent more time outside this summer than for a long time. And I've discovered something I had almost forgotten about. The pleasure of walking on grass barefoot. Something else I had forgotten about: the pain of hopping around on gravel barefoot! Ouch.
Cin and I are headed to Edwardsville in a bit for lunch, and then we'll pick up a few things at the store (she ALWAYS has to pick up "a few things" when we go out). I'm planning on getting my watch fixed at Walmart. Best watch I have ever owned. Bought it from them something like four or five years ago - maybe more - and it just keeps going except for needing a battery replaced now and again. I'm hoping that's all it needs now. It was less than $20, I remember that.
Borders looks almost done. Can't wait for it to open. I've got some books I intend to buy the first day.
Well, enough rambling for one morning.
