Spent the past 2 days fixing the yard and mud room
Last summer our lawn mower broke and we had to hire someone to come mow the lawn every few weeks. Well, they weren’t careful and got grass and weed seeds in our flower beds. Nick and I never got a chance to take care of the problem and by fall our beds were overrun. This is the result after all the snow melted this winter…
And this is after 4 hours of work removing weeds, grass roots, old mulch, and dead leaves! (which I’m still feeling today…)
Our yellow and white daffodils. red tulips, and purple hyacinths are some resilient fuckers! They were coming up under all that crap!
We also made a new spot in the front lawn for a bunch of daffodils.
And years after buying the house we finally did up the front of the house lining the porch. Nothing planted just yet.
And today, hours in the cold and dealing with some incompetent Home Depot workers, we added shelves to our mud room for storage and growing homes for future plants and flowers. This mud room is directly in the sun when it rises each morning which is great for our seedlings.
Like I said, I’m still in pain from all the work (my legs are the sorest part of my body) but it feels good to get things done and do something positive. I’ve spent weeks being stressed, so much so that I’ve lost 7lbs…(well I need to lose weight anyway) But I didn’t want to think of all of that stress and spend the whole weekend inside (also all my friends went to a con that we couldn’t afford to go to)
When the baby is in his high chair and holding his sippy cup off the table and over the kitchen floor, and I tell him “Don’t you dare drop that.”
