Yard arms…

There is something enchanting about the scent of orange blossoms mingling with smoke from a distant fire in the cool night air.  That’s what I arrived home to after work last night, as the wind gently wafted the aromas across the full face of the moon.  So pleasing… 

I need somewhere to plant all my sprouting seeds.  I may have to pot-up and sell some on the next yard sale day.  We are supposed to have a neighborhood sale soon…  Maybe I can get these things moving.  Or I could barter with Maggie’s…  hmmm…  what do I need?  besides more room and raised beds…?

Been slowly getting the yard to come around.  So many leaves, so little time.  And they are leaves from trees that don’t belong to us.  It’s a shame you can’t ask your neighbors to cut their trees down, especially at their expense!  Plus, I like the wildlife that collects around trees, and not having wildlife disturbs me.  We are so fortunate to live in an area that is still well inhabited by wild animals.   We have a lot of different birds and the morning is always filled with a chorus of calls from all around.  This reminds me of the mockingbird from a few years ago who learned how to imitate Scott’s car lock chime.   I hope the folks next door never sell and that orange grove stays around forever (yeah, right…)  It’s an important place for the neighborhood birds and other critters. 

Need Mr. F to set me up with the supplies to repair the irrigation issues.  I want that head that points at Gloria’s yard fixed.  It’s been messed up for years and he keeps avoiding it, and I am tired of it trashing her yard.

Nice to see the RM win at the Calderon.  Arse tied.  So did Lyon, which is ridic. 

Everyone wants to blame Gourcuff whenever Les Gones lose now.  The kid can’t catch a break.  For the ChampsLigue match, he comes back from geting his toe nail jacked up and can’t shape the ball well, so his set plays are criticized.  Even when he was out there making great runs up to the area, creating angles, running into space,  yet, nobody was sending the ball to him.  He had to fight for everything, and he really did try to get the ball to the net, unlike Licha, who sat back almost on defense, because he had to with RM’s amazing midfield speed.  So, Gourcuff gets criticized, even though they were playing a totally top class team.  X.Alonso’s sole role when they play each other is to hold Yoann, so that’s one of his biggest problems…  And I did detect some sniping between Gourcuff and Gomis at various points…  So things don’t seem to work in his favor recently.

MLS is back!  Charlie Davies scores TWO coming on as a substitute for DCU.  Keep it comin’ kid! Stewie Holden was stretchered off yesterday after getting his knee lacerated open.  Hope it’s not going to keep him out for long.  The Deuce scored his 10th goal of the season for Fulham (an American record in EPL), in a game that his friend, Timmy Howard, ended up winning with Everton.  It must be bittersweet to score against your friends.  So the European Americans are doing well recently.  Go Boys!!!  Giuseppe Rossi has been contributing a lot at Villareal, but it doesn’t really count until he starts playing for our NT.  slightly douche-like.

MLB Opening Day is coming!  Can’t wait to have games constantly on XM.  I wish that XM would play reruns of the games the way they do the EPL matches.  Some people can’t be in the car when the game is on.  I guess they can use their cells to watch these days.  I am so behind the times on all of these apps…  There is probably a Red Sox live game app that I could pay for and watch whenever I wanted.  Oh yeah – and Tivo, and DVR.  So, yep, I am behind the times.
