He has been weeding the humongous sticker grass weeds that sprang up between the bricks and paving stones over the winter, and when Melissa and I came home from Chinese, it looked ten thousand times better. I got the pruning shears and started in trimming all the shrubbery and tree limbs that overhang the yard from the neighbors' yard, and I find that I really like cutting things to bits. After that, I went to the back of the yard to hack at the ivy a bit, and found that it is easy to decimate the ivy with just a little hack and slash action. I am surprised that ivy has not taken over the entire world, since it grows so fast. California Kudzu. We cannot just dig it all up, because besides the incredible amount of work that would be, the ivy trunks are the only things holding the fence up.
I have cut out a summer top and am ready to start sewing. It will be nice to make something simple without buttons for a change.
