Take it outside

With warmer weather right around the corner (well, we was snowing here today), our thoughts will soon be shifted to outdoor work. Which always gives me a little anxiety this time each year. Our house is large (at least by our standards), and along with it's age--over 100 years--it requires lots of upkeep & maintenance. And of course, money to make that happen!

Last summer was a pivitol year for us. We finally rid ourselves of the giant weed garden we'd been so impressively cultivating for the last 3 years since owning the house. God bless my mom...she worked tirelessly to get our garden to the point where our neighbors were talking about it (and not in a bad way....imagine what they'd been thinking before?!). The only stipulation was that we were responsible for the upkeep. I'm happy to report the husband & I held up our end of the bargain.

But here we are again. Another year, another round of spring weeding & clean-up, mulching, mowing, get the picture. Additionally, we've got some BIG (quite literally) work coming up that I'll be sure to share soon! In the meantime, let's kick up our feet & do some outdoor dreaming, shall we?



Here's hoping for that warm weather soon...let the summer work begin!

  1. So I hear that this post about outdoors may have been a little too timely, huh?
