The last two mornings Chancy and I woke before daylight. I completed the usual inside morning chores and by that time the sun was coming up over the mountain.
The weather was perfect for getting out and doing some things I had been wanting to do. Low humidity and temperature in the 50’s comfortable to do outside work.
As some of you already know my little Chancy man loves to dig. When he was a puppy, I picked a spot in the corner of the yard and taught him to do his digging there. We called it “Chancy’s Garden”. When we worked in the yard, I would tell him to go dig in his garden and he would run to it and dig as fast as he could.
He nor I are spring chickens for sure but we both can still get around and enjoy doing some work outside I am most grateful for us being able to still do that.
Yesterday morning I started pruning some shrubs. Chancy stayed with me because he loves to help when limbs are being cut. After that we walked around our large backyard for a while.
This morning while I was doing more pruning, picking up rocks, and raking up some pine needles Chancy worked in his garden. He was so proud of himself, he barked for me to go see the roots he had dug up. I went to see and let him know he was a good boy and did an excellent job. Roots are his favorite thing to dig up. He pulls and pulls on them until he can break them or pull them out of the ground and put them in a pile.
The cooler weather and being able to get outside and do something has lifted my spirits. I have also done some work inside. I will get more done when the weather stripping for the entry doors arrives and I can get the doors ready for winter weather, I finished getting the windows ready a couple of days ago.
It felt so good to be outside in the cool temperature and feeling the breeze as I worked.
Prayers for all in the path of the hurricane.
