Tonight I must remember to water the front yard shrubs that I didn't get around to on Wednesday. Yesterday morning I trimmed a few dead branches here and there from various shrubs in both the front and back yards. The dead branches told me that I haven't been giving them enough water, so I'm going to make up for it now. I hope I can keep most of them alive for the rest of the summer. If the powerful El Niño that's forming in the Pacific delivers on schedule we could get rain in early autumn this year, which would be great. It's good thing I've gotten the roof repaired, as there could be goatloads of rain for several months.
Now I'm going to go watch Duck Soup. I probably won't want dinner as I intend to have lots of popcorn.
