i spent all my precious "free time" or non- work time this weekend on one of these:
now that Justin and I are proud "homebuyers", we are learning to take care of this place that is supposedly an investment in our future. it has been an interesting journey so far. only a month after we moved in we had plumbing problems, and we had to learn how to figure out what is wrong, who to call and how expensive it all is! we have been researching and praying through what updates (that we can afford) will bring back the most worth to our home. it makes you grow up quickly, that is for sure!
but it is spring. and in spring things come back to life. with life comes growth. so what we have is lots and lots of growth in our yard. so this weekend we began to tackle the problem. can you tell?
the people who lived here before us apparently really liked gardening. so they planted stuff everywhere... i mean everywhere. we have random junk popping up all over our yard, in the most random places. we spent most of the last two days digging up these bulb things that look like onions on the bottom. they are in the front, back and side yard. here is a pic of the side yard and my darling hubby working hard at digging up those onion things.
All in all, I am just glad we are learning how to be adults and get the job done. It was a productive weekend, and I guess it was better than taking an afternoon nap?? The jury is still out on that...
