Spring Fever

So what do you do when you come home from work after the new, earlier Daylight Savings time is in place, and it’s beautiful, sunny, and in the mid-60’s? Why yardwork, of course. No digging in the dirt yet, of course, but since I have no lawn and lots of perennials, I have a lot of cleanup to do. I don’t bother doing much cleanup in the fall, so there’s always lots of dead leaves, stems and branches to get rid of in the spring when the first green shoots start appearing.

Before

After

After filling up a 90-gallon garbage can with yard waste, I decided it was time to call it a day. Not to mention that it was time for dinner:

One great “tuna” sandwich…

DH likes tuna, but has an aversion to canned tuna because he’s convinced it’s contaminated with rat hairs after some report he read a hundred dozen years ago. But I came up with a solution to the problem. Take leftover cooked Blue Marlin steaks (from Costco, of course), chop finely and mix with celery, mayo, salt, pepper, and whatever you like in your tuna salad. Place on incredible fresh crusty Jewish Rye direct from the Avenues Bakery, and top with lettuce and sliced tomato. Mmmmm. No canned tuna ever tasted like this!

    Do they import rye from Avenues Bakery past the Point? Oy vey, that sounds delish!

    Well, that’s inspiring. I need to get out and rip stuff out of my yard, too…

    Tell DH I read somewhere that canned tuna has waaaaay less mercury than fresh.

    I have been avoiding the yardwork, I know I have to get started soon though, thanks for the reminder, I think!
