Yard Stuff

Thursday, May 19th, 2005 · No Comments

It’s another perfect, sunshiny day here in Saratoga Springs. The skies are blue, the breeze gentle. It’s one of those days when it’s hard to sit in front of the computer when all you want to do is be outside, soaking up the rays.

Yesterday after work I mowed the lawn for the second time this season. Parts of our lawn, including in front of our house and the dog area of the yard, need help. We’ve been talking about fertilizing it for weeks now, and if we had only just forked over the 30 bucks for a bag of it, the lawn would probably look much better by now. But better late than never. I’ll probably pick up some fertilizer today. Of course, our lawn is far from the perfectly groomed, thick green stuff that many of our neighbors sport. Our thumbs are far from green.

One of our neighbors has a scarecrow in her yard. It startles me whenever I look out the window.

With temperatures in the high 60s and low 70s this week, we also need to stop talking about it, and actually put our screens on.

I’ve played the Pepsi Call Upon Yoda game with one empty box of Diet Pepsi. I did not win the $100,000 grand prize, but last night dreamt that my brother did. (So Peter- Drink your Pepsi and go Call Upon Yoda!) I woke up this morning in a panic that we had thrown out our most recent Diet Pepsi box without checking to see if it was the 1 in 12 million that would be a winner. (It’s all you, Pete!)
