Not just the last this year, but quite possibly the last from this bush as it doesn’t look like it is going to survive. It was doing amazingly well for years, but this year a large piece of it died back. Hubby trimmed it and it looked like the rest of the bush was going to snap out of it, now the whole thing looks like it is barely hanging in there. It breaks my heart as that bush is huge and has been the one to hang on with so many other plants in my yard didn’t make it through.
Today is the first semi-normal day I’ve had in weeks. Hubby is finally back at work. There are no appointments or people coming out to the house. There are no projects to be started or worked on (yet). After weeks of overwhelming stuff, I just kind of don’t know what to do. Yes, I absolutely needed a break and I’m finally getting one. But as often happens in these situation, I’m now antsy and feel like I should be doing something.
Yesterday was the start of a huge, deep cleaning and tossing out project. FINALLY after way too long, Hubby and I went through the basement and created our piles of trash vs. donate vs. keep. We are now ready for someone to come and get years of stuff we haven’t known what to do with or how to get rid of it.
