My wonderful husband and I have had today on the calendar as a vacation day from our places of employment for quite some time. I have no trouble planning a vacation day and figuring out what to do with it when the day arrives.
On this Friday, we...slept in...had a leisurely bike ride...enjoyed lunch at a new to us diner...visited with a friend we haven't seen in awhile...and got mulch.
Our city has a free mulch pile. Much like the free compost I've posted about, this is a you load, you haul operation. The city chips tree limbs into the pile and so do commercial tree trimmers. Plus, after Christmas, a local utility company encourages citizens to drop off their real Christmas trees for addition to the mulch pile. I try to find areas in the pile with the chipped Christmas trees.
We filled the eight foot bed of our pickup to the brim with mulch and put every bit of it in the garden. Don't these paths look good with fresh mulch?
We need a little more, but that will be for another day.
Time to rest for the whole weekend is ahead of us still and we have plans!!!
Have a great weekend.
