Loving this re-do


This week my motto may as well have been "I stinketh". I said the made up phrase over and over. The kids in the mud their parents in the garden. We have worked so hard this week. We completed the re-do in the back patio. (one day we will stain the concrete, but not this time around) I love it. We finished the flower bed in the front yard. We had to clean it out. I made many calls to my daddy in Houston. He owns a landscaping company so he gives me lots of advice. We found 4 rose bushes under all the overgrown honeysuckle. I planted some bulbs please don't ask me to remember what they are called. My husbands truck is full of stuff to be dumped. The greatest news of our day was that we got mulch for free. We had to shovel it into our truck ourselves but it was so worth it.

Something else I found funny...My daughter had a birthday party to attend today at the Grace Museum. She was all dolled up. Here we go, her mother dropping her off in the middle of her garden work day...Remember...I sitnketh...and I also looketh the part. Not only did I have to walk her in but they were having a wedding reception in the lobby. You should have seen the looks.

The vegetable garden is yet to be planted. Maybe tomorrow...?
