Stix n Brix
I got the grass (weeds) cut yesterday. We had taken the Miata to the mechanic at Clayton Tire to have a minor oil leak fixed and they fixed the lawnmower tire in just a couple of minutes. I will definitely miss them when we hit the road this Fall. When I finished with the lawn, the mower would not crank up to put it in storage. It’s more than just the battery. Oh well, just one more reason to hit the road.
After that bit of yard work, I got a bucket out and washed the waverunners. We’ve enjoyed them immensely the past few summers, but it’s time for someone else to enjoy them. Gin charged one battery but the other one is bad so we replaced it today. They’ll go on Craigslist soon.
While I had the bucket and brush out, the Suki got a bath. Can you tell that I’m a bit vertically challenged? The water beads up so good because I put Rejex on it last fall. The pine pollen is starting to turn everything yellow so it’ll need to be rinsed off again in a few days.
Throughout all this labor, I had a special supervisor. Smudge is getting close to 14 years old and has slowed down a lot in the past year or two. She’s pretty much deaf and can’t see too good either.
As Gin and I were wrapping things up yesterday, Smudge gave us quite a scare. She had a seizure. It’s the first one she’s ever had. She stood there with her body curled up and trebling. I gently picked her up and held her until she came out of her daze. She’s always been an unfriendly dog, but we love her.
Thanks for dropping by, and enjoy each day of your life’s journey by finding beauty in the ordinary.
