  • Mood:


Today is mostly sunny, mild, and almost calm.

I fed the birds.  I've seen sparrows, house finches, grackles, mourning doves, and a brown thrasher.

I picked up sticks along the driveway and dumped them in the firepit.  We may be able to burn tonight.  I also want to go back out and spray weeds, which I haven't been able to do because of wind.

Lilacs and cherries are blooming.

EDIT 4/16/21 -- I sprayed weeds along the north edge of the driveway, the south lot, and forest garden.

EDIT 4/16/21 -- We burned off the firepit.
