Spruced up front yard

I woke up early ( 9:30 a.m.) and decided to cut the grass and weeds growing in the front yard. Had to use my garden shears first so it would not be too much for my little electric weed eater.  It has been a long time since I have used it.  Did a lot of raking as I never got around to picking up the fall leaves after I got sick this past December and earlier this year.

It was hot, we reached 101 today.  Last night we were under tornado and severe thunder storm warnings that never materialized.  Uvalde, Texas 70 miles east of us got a tornado, hail and thunderstorms...we only got lighting :(

The news mentioned that gas prices were on the rise due to the events in Iraq, glad I filled up yesterday.

Regular gasoline was going for $3.349 a gallon at our local HEB.

Went ahead and reloaded my gift card so I could take advantage of the .11 cents per gallon discount they are currently offering.  Ended up paying $3.239 per gallon.

After gassing up, I was supposed to get us something to eat but I had a CRS moment and did not remember until I pulled into our gate...so we ended up eating sandwiches, lol!

Good night.  May you all have Terlingua Dreams.


  1. I've been thinking about topping off my tank more often - I'll still pay the higher price but maybe it won't hurt as much as if I had to pump a full tank of gas.

    1. I try to have at least half a tank in the Toyota since it is the car we use the most. When we went to San Angelo I did not see the .11 cents discount so I waited till we got back to fill up.....yes, I love bargains, even though Billy Bob has been known to call me a penny pincher :)

    2. Congrats to our SPURS, Ss!!! I think the nuns helped a lot - they are so cute. I bet the Heat didn't have any praying for them. VIVA LOS SPURS!

    3. Definitively our Spurs deserve congratulations!

      I believe the nuns must be from Argentina as one of them has a Ginobili jersey...how cute is that :)

      VIva Los Spurs!


I sincerely appreciate you taking the time to comment. Thank you.
