My Lilac bushes or should I say trees are blooming beautifully in spite of me doing a super cut on them early this spring. They were getting so bottom heavy, they were beginning to break, so Steve and I set to really cutting them back. I cannot believe how much lawn we managed to reclaim just from that. I think the Lilacs themselves are at least 20 years old.
It is so ridiculously windy today, the girls have been spooking all over the place. A little apprehensive coming in for dinner this evening. It's supposed to storm all weekend, so they'll stay locked up anyhow. Works better when I'm at work and Misty seems to be refreshed on Sunday morning when I let them out again.
Misty is still on her glucosamine supplement. Some days are great and she's back to normal and others are a little weak. Maybe we'll get some riding in at some point, but for now I'll keep resting her. I took Kola off the Vitamin E & selenium supplement after reading about selenium poisoning. Kind of freaked me out, but I put her back on her Levothyroxine again, just for shits and giggles. Her weight continues to maintain, but I'm watching her closely. I figure the "Levo" isn't going to hurt anything. She and Misty are really starting to shed out well, although Kola's hair is a little more course, but all those butt ruffles are now gone. I did a major hair removal grooming yesterday. I'm sure our birds are happy and have snatched it all up already. Misty is starting to gain the slightest of muscle back and I haven't even started to exercise her yet.
On another note, I managed to get the house nice and clean, cat boxes all changed, floors mopped. I still need to attack the basement apartment. Next week will be a week outdoors again and time to mow for the second time this season. Not sure what Stephen and I are going to do with all the darned trees we've cut back with still many more to do.........I wonder if there's a service for that, branch and cut tree removal. I really don't feel like burning it all and I so not trust Stephen with a wood chipper............Hmmmmmmmm.........Will have to think about that one.
