I had two lists wandering front and back of different sheets of paper, so yesterday I compiled one list and it's mostly big stuff. Those tend to be the things that wait a little longer to get attention.
I have Poppy on some big antibiotics to be taken at mealtime to prevent nausea, and the vet said if she vomited to give her half - she's been on them for a week but only overnight did I find evidence that she might have an upset stomach. I'm not sure who "cleaned up" after her, but this morning I gave her a half dose (a vet suggestion) so at least today we'll do the half pill dosage.
Yesterday I finished mowing the back yard, though after three days the part I started mowing earlier needs mowing again. I trimmed all of the vitex limbs on the ground from last month's street-side pruning and stuffed them into a trash bin. I left the baldcypress limbs because they're straight and relatively free of twigs, making them easy to run through my electric wood chipper for mulch. I didn't cut the limbs I planned to remove from various trees around the yard (to place at the curb for bulky waste this week) because last week's weather didn't cooperate and one the one warm sunny day we had I mowed and thought I could trim the next day. But it again turned chilly. I'll do my incremental trimming that I've mentioned in the past—one big limb at a time cuts down into enough pieces that the fit in the big plastic trash can for trash day. Do that twice a week for a few weeks and the trees are trimmed.
