Sleeping In, Weeding & Mowing

That about says it all for today. I can't believe I slept so late. Steve called at 10am & I was still in bed. I guess I needed it! When I finally woke up, I went out to the garden to weed. Being busy with the windows over the weekend took priority over the garden. Anyway, I knew I would be here all week to take care of the garden. As I progress (I hope) with the weeding, I'll post some pictures. Right now, it's hard to see anything in there. :-) We had rain showers overnight & into this morning. That helped with the weeding. Everything was much easier to pull.
As the day warmed up, so did I, so I ate some lunch, watched the neighbors mow the wheat & decided to mow, too.
A little more weeding around the bushes & flowers & I called it a day.

After a supper of blueberries, I took a drive to take some pictures. On the ridges in Vernon County, you can see forever. The conditions weren't that great for pics tonight, so I will go out again later in the week.

As I sit here & type, a peach colored almost-full moon is rising. It will be a bright night as the moonlight streams into the room.

Do full moons make cats hunt? If so, Mia will be up all night tonight.

I think that it´s good to sleep long once in a while. Today I got up around 7:40am and that is late for me :-)
What a beautiful picture of the moon and evening sky!

I should really go out and get rid of weeds here too, but it has rained here almost every day. This is the rainiest July in fifty years over here! But I have almost finished my pond anyway :-) and the first dragon flies has come to visit :-)
Have a great day now!

I think our bodies let us know just what we need. I can go weeks on just a wee bit of sleep, but then, one day I'll just sleep and sleep.
Sounds like you had a nice day. Your pictures look "peaceful".

Hi Barb,

That is my idea of a perfect day. Enjoy your week.
