Sunday morning at my house

~~~~Mornings are better when you have an entourage (and a copilot)~~~~

I admire efficiency. Like tidiness, it just makes me happy and content. This morning felt like a well oiled machine.

5:30 a.m. – cuddle with the dogs

6:00 a.m. – go through bills and mail from yesterday; check email; order medicine for Dave’s feet and new collars for the dogs (have a protein shake while working).

7:00 a.m. – Set up new needlefelting projects

7:30 a.m. morning chores!!! Chick proof the big waterer to avoid accidental drowning.

8:00 a.m. – declare war on oriental fruit moths and treat fruit trees. I mean it this time, I have seldom wanted to kill things more than I want to kill these bugs.

8:15 a.m. – attack the weeds on the back side of the elderberry and hibiscus fence. I don’t like to weed eat, but it is very satisfying to see things neat and tidy, even if it is only for a week. I have to trim the steps in the bee garden to make my way through it. Put the battery on the charger.

8:45 a.m. – while the battery is charging, zip out to collect elderflowers. Usually, I like to let them develop into elderberries, but I wanted to dry some elderflower this year for tea. Happily, Dave has made me a cup of coffee to enjoy while collecting.

9:15 a.m. – home and processing elderflowers for drying

9:30 a.m. – back outside for another 30 minutes of weedeating. That’s enough outside work today, it is topping 80 degrees already, time to work on indoor stuff!! I did stop to admire the garden before scurrying back to the air conditioning and some wool projects.
