I continued the insanity by planting some bulbs. I put them in at the junction where the walkway to the side door and the driveway meet, so I'll actually get to enjoy them from time to time. (The rest of the bulbs are on the other side of the house, where there are no windows and I rarely walk.) I also decided that my foot was feeling a bit better, so I did something I'd put off for weeks, the final lawn mowing of the season. As I mowed, in the middle of my front yard I found a still wrapped Nestles Crunch Bar, exactly like the ones I'd handed out to trick-or-treaters. So sad. Some kid lost his treat. Well, unless the kid is like my weird little nephew who claims to hate chocolate. Anyway, once the height of the grass was reduced to something manageable, I let the mower run through the last of the gas in its tank, and put it away for the winter.
Then I showered, and collapsed in a heap. Okay, not entirely. I made some really good sauerbraten, and now I'm eating it whilst watching the Grinch on TBS (which seems awfully early to me). Oh, his heart just grew three sizes. Get the green guy some nitroglycerin tabs, stat!
