THANK GOODNESS IT IS FRIDAY!!!!!!!!!!!
When I took Maggie out this morning, I saw the magnolia are blooming starting at the top. The snowball bush is growing back with new shoots . I thought last years drought had gotten it.
Yesterday was a very Tennessee busy day. First off after I had completed the daily domestic duties, out I go and with Puppy's help picked some cherries. They are not ripen very quickly and there will be more to pick later on. Prince loves cherries so I will make him a cherry cobbler tomorrow for his birthday instead of a cake. Nothing like a nice hot cobbler with vanilla ice cream on top. We will have his dinner at night and I plan to bake a turkey breast.
However, I have run off the subject at hand, yesterday. I took my loppers and started down the far side of the drive. I trimmed back ivy from the maples, pine and cedar trees. Then I cut down the excess bushes near the crytle myrtles trees. Down to the left side of the drive where the mailbox is located, I have a row of day lilies which were being overcome by honeysuckle bushes. As I was cutting some of these, I got too close to the edge and down I went. I landed on my most padded area and I was heading to the pond. I finally got a foot hold and inched my way back up the hill. I never let go of my loppers as they were jammed against the indention between my thumb and pointer on my right hand. Unfortunately, I became my Father's child and used some of his favorite words. This does not happen often but I thought I had really messed up my hand. Being a right handed person that is not a good thing.
I drug my hot sore body back up the hill and spied the oak and dogwood tree that Prince said needed trimming so he could mow. I love him more than life itself but he gets too cut happy when it comes to my trees. So I cut the limbs that I think need to be cut and leave them for the guys to haul off.
My whole body is aware that I fell but mostly the right hand and arm. It feels like I jammed my shoulder up into the right part of my skull. Yikes. Needless to say I do not plan to venture out in the yard today.
The Kitty Justice is this cat did not land on her feet and now today she is sore from top to BOTTOM. Even a cat cannot stand on looooooose gravel or the edge of a hill side.
