Playing catch-up

I've played catch-up this week. Being sick with strep knocked me for a loop and I had to "let the rough end drag," as my daddy used to say.  But today I made progress.

I'd been kicking around an idea for this week's column so when I got home, I poured a tall glass of sweet tea and took the laptop to the screened porch. As the sun drifted toward the western horizon, the story unfolded. I think it will be a decent piece after polishing it up tomorrow.

The recent rain has turbocharged the grass, so I'll need to mow tomorrow, or go buy a free-roaming goat.

The picture below was another one from Fairhope in early May. We really need to get out of town more. Even if it's for just long enough to get some pictures.

  2. I do like reflections. Good shot.
    Now you got me to wanting a free-roaming goat for my Grand daughter's house. LOL Glad you are feeling better. I think Strep was the worst sick I have ever felt, thank God it was only once... TAke care and polish the column!

  3. I knew a difference in your routine would start your writing to flow. I just wish it had not been the interruption of illness.

  4. That picture of your post with the moon on the water is definitely inspiring. Hard to believe that we've left May behind and now the full moon of June is shinning on us. Glad you are feeling better but playing catch up isn't easy.

  5. I have a problem with my husband to mow the lawn even with a tractor. I often think of goats.
    lol Do farmers loan them out?

  7. I have always wanted to get a goat instead of paying a yard guy. I suppose goats poop, though. Not that the yard guy doesn't poop. He doesn't poop in my yard--as far as I know.

    Love,

  8. I think a goad would be a brilliant idea. This goat is working rain or shine, doesn't ask for money, will work for grass and will fertilize your lawn for free and is environmentally friendly. She may also give you some milk to make cheese. How about that?
    Glad you're feeling better.

  10. Tomorrow is my mow day. I could have done it today when I got home from work but my "get up and go...got up and went"! I grilled a steak and made a nice salad and had a nice dinner with Jack instead! Hope you find that goat!
