Steaming Pile of Stench


Do you like that title? I can't claim it as my own ... it's a quote from Kim Butterworth. Back when I had to beg rides to Broughton after seminary, Kim was kind enough to give me rides every now and then (we were almost always late for school). We parked by Fred Fletcher park and several times they had just dumped big piles of mulch to spread in the park. Kim would always laugh and say, "look at those steaming piles of stench!". It was true. They were steaming and they were stinky. Well, just recently we got our own steaming pile of stench. The town where we live delivers mulch for free to anyone who wants it. (Sometimes I love living in a small town!) So, we signed up for a load. Little did we know how much a load was! This pile is only part of what we got, and what we got was only half of a load! So, we have spread it in any and all parts of our yard that could use some mulch and the rest we dumped on our garden spot. We'll till it in sometime in the next couple of weeks. Cletus has been my Superman and has shoveled many, many wheelbarrows full of stinky mulch. Although, strangely, he thinks it smells good (?). Does anyone need some mulch? We have some to spare.

I'm just saying, I love the smell of mulch. I really do. Good job small town!

I hope you guys aren't too sore from all the mulch shoveling but isn't it awesome to do manual labor? I think so.

I don't count cleaning bathrooms as manual labor, just so you know........

Christian would probably love some mulch! I'll ask him. Also... when I was pregnant with Landen we were walking to our car around NC State and they had just spread fresh mulch. It made me SOOOO sick. For 2 blocks I dry heaved and almost barfed the whole way. It was disgusting. We were on our way to a State basketball game and I was making us late. Christian was not thrilled about this.
