Ah, Saturday! Actually I have to work part of the day, and I may have to put in a few hours tomorrow, too. Such is life. After my workout this morning I’m going to do some cleaning and then run to Home Depot: My “Yard Of The Month” gift card is burning a hole in my pocket! I also have another gift card from Lowes, so I may hit both places. Actually, now that I think about it, I also need some Turf and Garden Pro. Only Ace Hardware carries Turf Pro, so I may as well swing by there and complete the Saturday morning home improvement shopping triple-header.

Speaking of the yard, I’d like to take some new pictures of it sometime this weekend and update my home renovation web site. The turf looks amazing: it’s a very dark, almost bluish-green color and very lush. Many of the Crape Myrtles are exploding with color, and the roses look terrific. The Sapphire Duranta out back is loaded with blooms, and it looks like the weeping Loropetalum is about to put on a show as well. I think I’m starting to get the hang of this gardening thing! It’s a lot of hard work, but I really enjoy it. I find it calming and therapeutic to work outside when the sun is rising or setting. These “mini-gardening” sessions have become a daily ritual for me, and the extra attention is starting to show in the quality of the plants. I think this new hobby has also helped improve my health and quality of life by reducing my stress level.

I’d better get the rest of the maintenance done on the server and get my workout in. Lots to do today!
