Yesterday evening brought the perfect weather for a badly needed yard clean-up project. It had rained for most of the day so the pollen wasn't bothering my allergies, but it wasn't raining just then, nor was everything too wet. So when we got home we didn't even go inside. The girls ran around the yard, "helping," not knowing or caring that the colorful spades I gave them to dig with were beach toys, not garden tools. I weeded and they played, and the yard looks much better.
