This was the glamour spot of my weekend

Here I am dressed in PPE (that’s personal protective equipment for those of you not in the hazmat biz) preparing to tackle the nasty mean poison ivy trees in our side yard. Please note that all the shaggy-looking vines in the chain link fence behind me are (on fact) nasty mean poison ivy.

It turns out that 1 hr is not long enough to pull up all if these well established vines. Also, the largest ones seem to be growing our of our neighbors yard, I hope he doesn’t mind me massacring the thriving pestilence.

I couldn’t even bag what I did pull, our bags weren’t robust enough. I need to get a new dress-up suit and revisit this job another day soon.

Happy first day of spring!

We are having a very balmy snowstorm, and everyone in the office is in shock. I am not, however, because of the year my 9th birthday party had to be moved indoors because it was snowing. On April 15th.
