A) - Great. My life has never been better. Seriously. Well, except I'm sick right now, with a nasty Spring cold, but otherwise things are just swell!
Q) Sick eh, too bad. What did you do today?
A) Too much really. This weekend was going to be the weekend to whip the landscaping into shape! All weekend all work in the yard! Sooo - I went and got sick yesterday, coming down with a nasty cold. Then the weatherman decides to make it rain pretty much all weekend, messing with our plans fo schnizzle. So when we had a few hours this morning with no rain we went out and hit it hard! I cleaned up around the trees in the front and put some mulch around them.
Then I mowed the front and was about half way through the back when it started to rain again. Meh - it was already really long and I had to finish it so I mowed in the rain. Stupid, yes, of course. Meanwhile NG was "on fiya" and edged and planted the flower beds in the front of the house, down at the end of the driveway, by the flag pole, and the one along the back of the house. So we got a lot done but still have a lot to do.
Q) You have a flag pole?
A) Yes - it came with the house. We had a peace sign flag up there for a while and all the neighbours thought we were hippy freaks working for non-profits and whatnot. Heh...
Q)You're sick and you mowed in the rain?
A) Yes. I quite regret it now.
Q) How's the job?
A) It's going along quite well. Q1 was a monster for us and Q2 is shaping up pretty well. We keep hiring new people all the time and now I'm starting to feel like a veteran there as I walk around the look at people sitting in cubes who I've never met before. Crazy times.
Q) What are you going to do this Summer?
A) Ah Summer. I'm planting my garden again so I'll be tending to that all summer, doing God's work and all that. Plus NG and I are going to take a proper vacation and spend a week at the ocean! Should be a blast - it's been years since I've taken a real vacation and I'm quite looking forward to it!
Q) What's this I hear that you may be getting a dog?
A) A dog? Who told you that? Ah - well maybe in the Fall.
Q) Read any good books lately?
A) I read The Stand again - for the third time actually. I really enjoy it even if it is a bit long. I read Pillars of the Earth too - which was quite good if not a bit long as well. I find I read more since I got my kindle because it's easy to take to work which lets me read during lunch. Much better than frittering time away on the Internets as it were.
Q) Thanks Bob!
