What is There to Write About?

There just hasn't been much to write about.

School is out for the summer so Beth is no longer volunteering at the school on Thursdays. She's still working, still bowling and still rehearsing for Grease. Sometimes just for fun, I'll call her Frenchy. "Hey Frenchy, would you empty the dishwasher?" "Oh stop it!" :)

Chuck has been working a lot of overtime so he's had the van on my days off. I've been staying home and cleaning out drawers and cupboards. I'm getting a lot done!

Our cherry tree is so full this year! Usually the birds get to them before we do but this year I've hung some shiny things on it and they're leaving it alone! I read that birds don't like things that are shiny and it seems to be working. It's been nice to finally enjoy the fruits of our labor. Literally!

My hydrangea bushes are exploding this year. Last year, this bush didn't even get leaves until September! And then it only had 3 blooms. This year, it's turning out beautiful. I usually prune them in the fall, when they are brown and look bad but I was told that was the wrong time of year. So this year I pruned it at the end of winter, beginning of spring and I think that made the difference. I'm anxious to see it in full bloom!

the garden is a good thing to write about. I hope we get to see the hydrangea in full bloom.

Oh! What shiny things did you use? That is fascinating, ha! Good to know, thanks ;)
