It's been a productive day. They go that way occasionally. In the morning, I banged out 4 miles on the treadmill, made a batch of cinnamon rolls and a big pot of chili. In the afternoon, I went to work on my "kitchen" garden, yanking out the dead and dying, trimming back the parsley which had gotten out of control, beat back the creeping Bermuda grass and swept the walkway and the front porch. Very satisfying.
I enjoy the days when my energy is humming along and especially when I can get outside to burn up some of that energy. It's still hotter than I'd prefer, but the early mornings definitely have that little fall nip.
Critter update: a large garden orb spider has appeared next to one of our sliding glass doors. She has positioned herself right under a hummingbird feeder, and since we lost a hummingbird a couple of years ago to a garden orb (horrible!), we moved the feeder to be safe. My husband fed her a nice, fat grasshopper this afternoon.
Speaking of, the hummingbirds are absolutely mad for the feeders. It's wonderful. We must have a couple dozen birds.
