RE: OT--reply-Texas gardening (a day in the life)

Snake hips?  You're killin' me :-)
Sounds like y'all got a bunch done IMO! Good thing I got so much done
yesterday, it's actually raining today. Not hard but enough to keep me
from working in the yard. Well, we need it and my kitchen and bathroom
haven't been this clean since Jesse was here in March. I even baked
cookies while I was cleaning this morning. (Quick, someone catch Jesse
before she faints) Looks like the sun is trying to peek out so maybe
I'll get some of my "to-do's" done today.

happy gardening!!
