I have decided to make every Friday LIST DAY! And since yesterday we worked in the front yard all day, I don't really have a lot of list fodder. But I *can* tell you that our builder apparently knocked down the house here before ours, dumped red clay on the lot, and built right on top of it. So let's play a little trivia game called:
"Ten Things We Pulled Out of the Dirt in Our Front Yard Yesterday"
1. Eight pieces of jagged broken glass
2. One liquor bottle
3. Four huge rusty nails
4. Three terrified earthworms
5. A length of wire we hope wasn't connected to anything important
6. Two very big old bolts
7. At least five whole bricks
8. Many chunks of concrete
9. A part of chain-link fence
10. A partridge in a pear tree*
*I only added that because I didn't have a number 10. We filled several buckets with what I like to call "yard shrapnel."
You will be happy to know that I didn't even touch a video game today. Read an entire novel, yes, but played Pikmin, no. But my husband is a BAD INFLUENCE. He now wants to play Pikmin with me on the 2-player challenge mode. So I imagine the day will not end without one of us uttering the words: "HE ATE MY RED GUY!" :-)
