Buying Stock in Ibuprofen

I am feeling every muscle in my back, shoulders, arms and legs today.

I spent the entire day yesterday HAND trimming and renewing the forsythia and wiegelia shrubs along the driveway. They got some LONG over-do haircuts! If you don’t get the old wood out of there the blooms start to decline.

Half way done

Lots of seeding had to be done after digging up the stump from the pear!

On another note, this was last Wednesday’s painting!

I was essitted to do this one since it’s so ‘me’

I wasn’t happy with it when I brought it home so I played with it some more and got it to where I like it.

This one will even get a frame!

    I did JUST A LITTLE yard work the other day and I feel muscles that I haven’t used recently — I can’t even imagine yours!!! Guess you’ll be off to the liquor store for some more pain killer.
    Are you given a assignment for the painting classes or do you get to choose your own subject? I like the nest.

    Makes my back hurt just hearing about your toils.
    The blooming trees are gorjamous, even our cherry is weeping up here in The Mitten.
    I love your new crabapple, that is one of my very favorites!
    LOVE, LOVE, L.O.V.E. the nest!!!!!!!
    Two months until I can see everything with my very own eyeballs!
