Lawn work--

Started the day by getting up at 9:00 to mow the front lawn, go me. I used to love mowing the lawn, but Whines has an electric lawn mower...MUCH more ecologically sound, but hard to use and not as much fun. *Shrug*

Once he was sufficiently viewed, I went back to lawn work.

Another toad in the water bucket we keep near the front door. Big toads. Better there than burrowing in my miracle berry...

Finished mowing the lawn--a little later on, got a bottle of fish emulsion fertilizer and poured it liberally around on my herbs and stuff. Oh, the stink. The dogs like stink. Everything smells of horrible fish muck now, including myself, that smell does NOT come out.
