Thank you Tristan.
What gets you up in the morning?
I never would have thought it would be a garden and some wildflowers. But since putting them down, I have faithfully watered them every day, twice a day usually, unless D took on the task for the early one when he gets home from work. I pull out the cottonwood sprouts every day. Damn things, I somehow never thought they would be quite so prolific, despite papering the ground thickly. I'll know better next year and eradicate as many as possible BEFORE I plant anything else. Maybe get that tree hacked back as well.
Looking at rain and cooler temps again this weekend, if it ever gets here. I'm just not used to four days straight, after so long with a Wednesday off. Tomorrow looks to be very long. Which is why I'm not working Friday, shifted because it was going to be a whole lotta nothin'. Docs want a long holiday weekend, it's happened before. My day ended shorter, because the last two cases had possible more complicated procedures, that the surgeon opted not to perform. Got to hear him talk through his reasoning with his fellow, which is always interesting. Thought processes of surgeons. It's not cut and dried, as much a matter of feeling based on experience, throw in a dash of patient lifestyle and preference, and the subtleties of anatomical variation. Based on knowledge and research and judgement. Nosing in on this made my day.
