John is back in the schoolhouse. We worked in the yard most of the day. Sun and wind a perfect combination, warm and no mosquitoes. We planted another lilac and moved sod from one place to another…always trying to make it work with what we’ve got, never minding the labor involved until we are bushed and our muscles are sore. Recovery is at hand with portabella and tofu burgers; an unintended challenge in this beef country.
