Saturday is a special day .....

It's dark now, but it's been quite the day!! We've been busy working on our yard today. We put a border around our garden area, so we can keep the dog out of it. We also planted what he had so far into it. So altogether we planted 18 tomato plants of various kinds and 4 cucumber plants, 2 cauliflower, cantaloupe, and watermelon plants too!! We're making some reall nice plans for our yard and are considering putting in an Apple tree !!! Maybe even this year. We'll see. We want to put in more "flower beds" along our fences and actually use our patio this year and acquire some patio furniture so we can kick it outside this summer. Isn't it great to have dreams and goals, because it gives you something to look forward to, or work towards. I'm EXCITED!!! We've been in our house for 7 years now and we haven't done any changes to our yard since the first growing season we were here back in 2001!! We need CHANGE!!! I'll post pictures later of the progress we've made in the yard. And my own latest undertaking that I'm just adoring right now. Everyone is quiet right now, and I still have to finish unloading the van from the few things I just bought on a late night run to walmart. I'm tired and exhausted and wearing the same "yard clothes that I work in" and need a shower big time. Thomas was so worn out today that he started getting whiny around 7pm while it was still very much daylight outside and Chris and I were still working, he wanted me to hold him. Which only really meant one thing, that he was TIRED!! He was also filthy and still is right now, he climbed onto our porch wicker love seat spot and laid down on the cushions, I walked to the back yard and was there for 1 or 2 minutes, came back up to the front and he was already asleep. I hope that he doesn't have an accident tonight!! What a great productive day. Now if I can only feel like I've accomplished that much in a day on the inside of my home. And feel just as satisfied that will be a miracle!! And must mean that I don't have kids living here anymore. LOL!!


  1. Busy days are always exhausting but so satisfying! Good for you for getting so much done! We're trying to do yard work, too...but neither of us have any idea where to begin. Get up those pix of your garden!

  2. YEY! I'm exicted that your loving working in your yard and making progress. I love yard work, there is such a feeling of accomplishment and I love reaping what you sew. I need to walk by and see it!!!


I like feedback.... so go ahead and leave me some comment love. Thanks.
