I was up at 3.00 am and I couldn't get back to sleep. So I started to do some house cleaning. I swept downstairs and went on the computer. I was back in bed by 4.30am and slept until 6.30 am. I got up and mopped the floors. I made a cup of coffee and around 7.45am I decided to do some weeding. I have been saying that for several days and I couldn't find anymore excuses why I couldn't get it done.
I looked at one of the areas to be weeded and started with gusto. I pulled on my gloves worked continuously until 11.45 am. I couldn't ask for better working conditions. The soil was damp, it was breezy and I was working in the shade of an enormous ficus tree.
Soon things were looking better, spaces were appearing where weeds once thrived.
By and by the weeds were piling up in my cart. More weeds were thrown on the cart and soon it was overflowing. Another weed pile started on the ground behind the cart. I didn't finish it all, there was a small piece left that I plan to do the following day.
I was thirsty, so I collected some ripe limes from under the tree and made some limeade.
I took a lunch break and guzzled down three glasses of limeade, it was delicious. Limeade is very easy to make. I squeezed enough limes to get a half cup of juice. I added eight cups of water and one and a half cups of sugar. A final garnish of some Angostura bitters and it was finished.
I tried getting back to the weeding after lunch but it wasn't the same, so I decided to cut the grass. I jumped on my mower and got to work. I worked into the evening and finished around 7.00 pm. I wondered if it was that cup of cafe I had earlier.......hmmn.
