This morning, there is evidence that it had rained during the night. The deck is wet and the skies are still grey. If it stays damp and cool, I think there will be no danger if I mow down a couple of the yards that are covered in star thistle. Out-of-state company is coming in a week or so and the place looks so raggedy. Besides, those pointy spears hurt me and I can only imagine what they do to Bessie Anne. I'd been keeping ahead of the thistles but then it got so hot and dry so fast and the fire danger from a spark was too terrible that I put Fu Manchu in the shed for the duration. I never expected a break like this!
It was a good day.
