Today is going to be all about the fact that our lawns have spent the past 18 months being abused by landscapers, contractors and the worst drought Texas has on record. I basically have to get an entire year’s worth of dead grass out of the thatch in the hopes that the St. Augustine will run one more time before going dormant until March. With any luck, the spot treatment for the weeds (an eco-friendly variety of weed killer) will arrive tomorrow and I can follow-up the weed whacking and raking with weed treatment.

Oh, and I’ll be drinking this tea while I do all that work because we aren’t supposed to break 60 degrees until afternoon.

Maybe I’ll back the car into the driveway and listen to the Arabic version of the liturgy as inspiration…
