Chowing down on their Fall grass as fast as they can before they get pulled off of it for the rest of the year (need to put down fertilizer before winter, so they cant go back on once I do that)..

It's nice to see them out there. They always look happy. Cant get a pic of them with their heads up cos.. You know... Grass. It's serious business!

Looking good, but................grass

I've come back to lawns full of moss and little grass to be seen, my penalty for being away so long (even though it was being cut and "maintained")

Finaly, Finally, I seem close to getting my Covid vax.

My 10-day quarantine has ended (after 12 days!)

Tomorrow I get my boiler fitted.

Things are looking up!
