I was up at the crack of dawn(5:00 a.m.) this morning, thanks to the birds singing and the dog whining to go out. I told myself there was no point in trying to go back to sleep as there was plenty to get done this morning.
I was brushing my teeth when my lovely cat came flying in and proceeded to vomit on the floor (sorry for you weak stomached people...I am one myself but still felt the need to share this little tidbit). I got that cleaned up and finalized the packing of my last tote box. Eight o'clock rolled around so I decided I would be safe in mowing the lawn. I made three passes before the mower deck began grinding. Loudly. Scarily. I turned it off and back on 3-4 times thinking (hoping) it might just go away and get back to normal. No such luck.
OK then. I'll get my plants all watered well before I leave. Despite the leak in my hose and being 6" shy of being able to comfortably water my Topsy Turvey's, I was successful. The sweet peas needed a little weeding around them so I managed to do that as I generously fed the mosquitoes.
I got the fishing poles all set up with leaders, sinkers and bobbers. I know you're waiting for it but I did NOT get hooked!
Since that went so well, I thought I'd get everything packed up that could be packed up at this point. My only challenge was trying to work around Max (the dog) as he loves to ride in the car and jumped in every chance he got.
Here's the car, loaded up:
