The Better Half and I tended to a couple of chores today, the first of which was to rescue some of the lemons in the orchard that had begun falling from the tree. We picked a few of the low-hanging fruit, some of which were still changing colors. We took one of the mature lemons and juiced it into a post-chores margarita that TBH concocted. That was a very good use of the first of the crop.
The second chore was to trim back a creosote bush that had badly encroached on the little creek (seen in the foreground above). When we finished, this is the view from the courtyard - much improved since we looked at it yesterday and decided to do something about the encroachment. Clickable image.
Medical note: I had yet another procedure a week ago, to remove another suspicious lesion from the bladder. That went well and I have been without symptoms since the day after the procedure. We get another pathology reading next week and a probable course of treatment prescribed then.
