After a couple of months of no problems, things are starting to happen. As you read in the last post, there was a fraudulent check, which the bank is taking its time to fix. Now my complacency has started to cost me. Rather than taking the few moments to take in my yard tools last weekend, i left out my shovel, two rakes and my broom. Yesterday i attempted to start reseeding my lawn, in an area that was completly bare. I went to go find the rake, and realized that it had gotten legs and walked off along with the other implements. I have no one to blame but myself. Add this to the lesson learned.
The nicest man on the block passed away last week. He was referred to as "The Mayor" of our street. He had lived in the house across the street for the last 55 years. He watched out for everyone, and was a tremendous man. God bless his soul, and thoughts out to his family.
In some good news; I continue to meet more and more of the neighbors. They are some really great people. I got more info on the block, who lives where and what their story is. I love it here. Some new folks moved in up the street, will have to welcome them later today.
Having a yard is agreat thing, but it does take a lot of effort. If only I had the motivation that Mari from InShaw has toward her gardening. Other than the grass, there is weeding to do, and i plan to make an herb garden. I love to cook, and always need basil, parsely and other herbs. Going to the store costs way to much and then they spoil too fast.
