Ok, so it's been over a week since I last posted. I can hear my mother yelling at me :) It's not like I'm so super busy during the day that I can't take a few minutes to post what we're up to. The weeks just get away from me and I forget. BUT, no more excuses. I've told myself that I'm going to try and blog at least 3 times next week. We'll see how that goes.
This is going to be a picture post, because that will pretty much show what we've been up to.
First off, I've been busy in the front yard. This is a flower bed that is right in front of our house on both sides of the entryway. They had been neglected for a while, so last week I got out there and pulled all the weeds and planted flowers, and then put mulch over the top to help keep the weeds down. The mums were $1.49 at Home Depot. Can't beat that!!
Last Saturday, we didn't have much on the calendar, so we went out to the barn to see what we could clean up. Well, we found a metal barrel and a bunch of wood that needed to be burned so we could make room for the sheep. There is still A LOT more to go, but we got a good start. The hubby was having fun!
This past Monday, I was really busy chopping weeds. See, I think our property is the only place where these lovely pole weeds grow. We have SO many of them. No matter how hard you try to keep up with them, they grow back 10 times as fast. But out front by our mail box was starting to look a little overgrown, so I got the shovel and started chopping. It took me a while, but it looks a lot better!
|After-so much better!|
On Tuesday, Chris got off work a little early because he hurt his back over the weekend and had to make his first trip to the chiropractor. I've been begging him to do this for years, but a muscle spasm finally pushed him to go. Anyways, we got to take this sweet boy to a pick-your-own pumpkin, pumpkin patch and he had the greatest time! As he was carrying his pumpkin, he was saying "I got my punkin patch" So cute.
Tomorrow, I will have a surprise to show you. It's something I have been waiting a long time for and it has made this week draaaag on like no other. It's going to change our lives...just a little.
And for those of you that know what it is...don't say it :)
Linking up today to Farmchick's Farm Photo Friday. You should too!
