I left my life behind to catch a glimpse of life 
22nd-Aug-2014 05:22 pm
It is 5:10 PM Friday evening. It is 80 degrees humid and gray outside today. I should mow our lawn but why? Our neighbors in the back have not mowed their lawn in years and it is a jungle. I do not report these neighbors to the city because birds and animals live in their backyard now. I suppose if it was not for our neighbors and living in the city I would not mow our lawn. We do not manicure our lawn. If I had a ton of money I would hire someone to mow our lawn and trim our shrubbery. I also like to have flowers blooming all around our house. Well someday I will be in the New Creation.

Today has been normal. I read my books on the life of Flaubert and wandered the house. I laid down till dreams drove me to the edge of madness. Now I am sitting here in front of this computer writing more words.

Carol is sleeping right now because she goes back to work after being off since Wednesday. No escape from the grind.

So existence goes by. There is nothing on television worth watching tonight. I plan to go to bed early. Tomorrow I once again volunteer at the library used books store from 10 AM till 1 PM.

Well I will close to drift into the darkness.

Lawn mowing is a detested chore in our household! We don't mind it getting a little long but all our neighbours keep their lawns nice ours ends up looking unkempt.

There's not much in our garden except a few flowering shrubs, a magnolia tree, and some violets. I have a black thumb.

I do not like working in the yard. The last couple of years I have planted in our backyard a wildflower garden. We do have all around our home plant growth and trees, but they all need a gardeners touch. We plan to cut down some trees that are killing others trees this Autumn. We need more sunlight in our backyard for flowers to grow. Holland Michigan is known as Tree City. Also Holland was settled by the Dutch who love flowers/tulips etc. . . the city of Holland prides itself on everything looking nice meaning flowers and trees everywhere.

My town, Toowoomba, is know as The Garden City. In a few weeks is our annual Carnival of Flowers. If you're interested, you can read about it here: http://www.tcof.com.au/
