I had yesterdays blog all done and lost it again. it must be me messing it up.
Yesterdays project was to remove a dead lilac bush from the yard. What a tangled mess that was. There seem to be some new shoots coming up so I may have a new tree in a few years or maybe I'll keep cutting them off and find a way to kill the root. The thing never produced many beautiful smelling flowers anyway.
I had a good day with the Queen yesterday as we celebrated her birthday. I tease her every year that she catching up to me in age as her birthday is in may as mine is in September. For a shorth time she's only a year younger than me. :) I really surprized her with apainting of the daughters that she really wanted. I had had it shipped to a friends and they delivered it to us yesterday morning.
Tonight wer're going to use a small portabe fire pit the granddaughter purchased to BBQ some steak. It will give us the real BBQ'd flavor that a propane BBQ can't as well as the enjoyment of sitting and watching the fire. It's funny the city requires a permit for the small 30 inch diameter fire pit and the fire department has to come and inspect the thing before you can have a fire. I guess they don't want people having bonfires in the city and burning houses down.
