We heard a woodpecker hammering away at a tree and Greg says: That’s the Machine Gun Kelly of the bird world. I laughed so hard, I had to make a meme for it. It really did sound like a machine gun going off.
At least he wasn’t on on my roof, pecking away at our satellite dish. That’s our only source of internet connection.
We FINALLY did our taxes. I don’t know why we put it off for so long. Surprisingly, it wasn’t the brain drain of last year. Next year, with even less deductions, it should be a piece of cake–unless I make tons of dough. Talk about bittersweet. 🙂
We had some good rain come through. Not a lot, but enough to give everything a good drink of water. I started on my brick garden ‘patio’. Back-breaking work, but Greg helped so the job was less murderous than I anticipated. We still have another section to do. Unfortunately, I might run out of brick before then.
I’m determined not to buy anything to fix up my patio. If I run out of brick, I’ll have to wait until I find someone giving away their leftover brick. I want this to be a totally recycled project.
I’m hoping for a couple more days of rain so I can take the rest of the week off. My muscles still haven’t recovered from brick hauling duty. We moved hundreds of brick. I didn’t get fancy with the design when I reset them. I just wanted a nice even surface.
Pictures will come later. It’s a little too rainy for photos.
What big project is on your horizon this spring? What would you like to get off your bucket list? Have you ever heard a woodpecker?
