Things have been an awkward mess lately and so am I.

Saturday the husband and I did some damage to the weed pit situation that is our flower beds. I took the electric hedge trimmers and gave the holly bushes out front a very bad buzz cut. I cut them back much lower than before, but that’s because I’m tired of them creeping up so much. I may work on removing them this week. The flower bed along the driveway was completely ripped up. Some of the plants we tore right out and others we trimmed back to tiny nubbins. It was nice getting a foot of space back on our already narrow driveway. The husband wants to tear out all the plants and put rocks down until we can afford to repave the whole driveway. It would be a lot of work, but at least we wouldn’t be fighting plants when we open the car doors next to the house.

Just now I heard a noise and our dumb cat, Bento, was so worked up from seeing a squirrel outside the window he body slammed into it and then bounced backwards. I saw him at the moment he wobbled to keep balance, but then fell on his butt down to the floor. He then jumped right back up on the window sill and is huffing and puffing, furious at the squirrel outside. He does this somewhat regularly. He forgets there’s a pane of glass in front of him and then slams himself into the window because his little kitty mind is too actively trying to chase the critters outside. I really wonder if he’s somehow given himself head damage from how many times he’s done that.
