No, not that one. I'm talking about the bushes that run along the front of my house. We decided a few days ago to take them out and use the space to plant a vegetable and herb garden instead. I have visions of rows of golden peppers, juicy tomatoes and fragrant cilantro all swaying majestically in the breeze, and regularly finding their way into my cooking pot.
So this morning I skipped my run, grabbed my shovel and loppers, cranked up the ipod and got to it.
And after 6 hours of digging, chopping, wrestling, pulling, and a little bit of swearing, our bushes are no more. Well, that's technically not true - they are chopped up and stacked (not so) neatly on our front lawn. I am one tired puppy, and I bet you anything I am going to be really sore in the morning.
Yesterday I ran 10 miles up at Brushy Creek with my friends Alan and Caroline. It was a great social run and a chance to catch up with friends I don't see often enough. We celebrated afterward with breakfast and Irish coffee at Alan's house.
There wasn't very much coffee involved :-)
