I spent today doing yard work to get ready for the holidays and winter. I went and got my friend, Seth, and he helped me with the yard work. We pulled weeds cut the little trees that I do not want in the flower beds down threw them over the back fence. We also raked some leaves and put them on the compost pile. Seth picked up the wood that was next to the house and put it on the wood pile while I raked the leave out of the area. I need to clean up around the wood pile but I am waiting for my brother to come over and help me with the tree that broke earlier this year. The broken branch make it hard to get around the part of the yard where the wood pile is and clean. We did a lot before the rainy weather moved in. The yard already looks with what we got done. I still have a lot done. I left the one flower there since it already survived the cold nights that we already had.
In The flower beds by the house in the front I pulled the weeds and pruned the brushes. Next weekend, I will be putting some Christmas lights on these brushes.
The flower beds by the road, I and Seth pulled weeds, cut the dead flowers off and I cut the tree cut that I did not want there.
The flower bed in the middle of the driveway, I and Seth pulled up the wood that made a border around it, since the wood was all rotted. I do not have plans to put a new border around it right now. I have plans to pull the wood borders from the flower beds in front of the house. I cut the trees out I did not want growing their and pruned the rose brush. I had Seth raked the leaves on to it.
After my mom got home and Seth and I finished up with the yard work, we went and looked around the Hobby Lobby store. I treated Seth to dinner at Ruby Tuesday. I am glad they added some stuff back to their salad bar. I guess the next time I go their I will order water as my drink. I am trying to cut back on drinking soda and their sweet tea is not sweet at all. Good sweet tea is an art form. You need to add sugar enough to sweet the tea but still taste the tea. Ruby Tuesday needs to add more sugar to their tea. The food tasted good.
