"Touch The Sky"
The only problem with having so many cats around is it means we don't get many birds. I do miss the birds but hopefully as the weather turns cooler the birds will come back to the feeders.
We are continuing to clean out our gardens. Sunday afternoon we were trying to yank out three bushes from one of the side gardens. It took us around forty minutes to dig one out. Just as we were starting on the second one an elderly gentleman pulled up in his minivan. He hopped out and asked us if we needed a hand. He was on his way to help his son, who lives around the corner, pull out some trees. He hooked up a rope to his trailer hitch and pulled both bushes out in ten minutes. He then offered to take them away as he was going to the dump afterwards. How kind! Our gardening neighbour has set aside a number of plants from his garden for me and is anxious to get them planted in our garden. Goodness, people have been so kind to us since we moved here.
We had a wonderful weekend and we have a visit from Kim to look forward to shortly. Can't wait!
Have a good week everyone.
