Holy moly...hot hot hot out. But I wasn't lazy and John and I went to Lowes to get mulch. I put out 15 bags of mulch around the house. I still need more for the side of the house where the trailer is, but no one sees that part, so I'm not worried about it much.
Then when I walked in the house John had a yummy yummy frozen drink waiting for me....I love that man!
