Bagging A Carpet

Jackie spent much of the day on watering, planting; and laying a thick carpet of clippings from climbing flora, mostly blue solanum, from the arch above the Brick Path beneath which It had become impossible for anyone much above Ellie’s height to pass without a risk of being garrotted.

It fell to me this afternoon to snip a few more stems from the foliage

and bag it all up for eventual removal to the dump.

This evening we all dined on Becky’s pork and apple casserole hammed up by the chef,

and creamy mashed potato bearing a soupçon of skin, which I photographed prematurely.

Jackie drank Zesty and I drank more of the Cabernet Sauvignon


  1. Great title, Derrick!
    Ha! Becky you make me smile and giggle! What a fun chef you are! And your food looks delicious! Also got a grin looking at the photo of the premature-mashed-taters! Ha!
    What good work done, what good food ate…ate-ed…eat-ed…eaten. what a good day! 🙂
    (((HUGS))) ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

  2. A productive day definitely calls for a delicious meal. By the way, I also like a little bit of potato skin in my mashed! Happy weekend, Derrick 🙂
