Spring has sprung and the Dooley finally thawed, so guess what that means!
Yep, time to rake dog shit.
If you multiply 5 large dogs by 4 months of snow, you get about 100 pounds of shit. More to the point *I* get 100 pounds of shit.
I have half of the yard raked into little piles ready to go into the Dooley, but I can only add a 5 gallon bucket every other day. I’m thinking of making another Dooley since this one works so well. Now that I have an extra hour and a half every day, I have time to do stuff like that.
Spring also makes me want to start planting stuff, but I know we could easily be under 3 feet of snow overnight. A wise person never puts anything in the ground until June around here.
When I moved my little house out on the prairie, I had all these plans for flowers, trees, shrubs, paths, you know, something of beauty. I made a little progress until I started working in Cody and then the flowers, trees, and shrubs died. My prairie looks worse now than when I moved in and I don’t like that at all. It’s time to polish up my green thumb and start making my outside look sparkley and new.
