While Adam's mother was here, she and Peter worked a long, hot afternoon to clear out the dead wood and overgrown matter in this side border of our front yard. It was a ton of work, but they did a fabulous job. Hopefully some of the healthy bushes now have a chance!!
Here's another view of the same border, further along.
The 3 younger kids watched a movie last night, sitting on the couch. They're watching it on a laptop - a "play it now" movie from Netflix. In the next few years, I imagine this will become the main way we watch movies/shows - online, when we want, what we want. Makes sense.
