Our summer was actually enjoyable for the first time in a long time. We did things around the yard, went to the park, and even travelled a bit. Normal things. The past few years having a big yard has been more of a burden than a place to relax. In between running around to medical appointments, being busy at work, continual rain and just trying to keep up with life. Our yard has been sadly neglected. Finally, this summer I got a chance to get a little bit ahead of the weeds and mowing the lawn. June was very wet but July and August we received almost no rain. I took a couple of weeks off in July and August and focused on sprucing up the flower beds and trying to clean things up a bit. I must admit having things a little tidier does make you feel like you can enjoy the yard a bit more. Today was a gorgeous fall day and it was so nice to walk around and not see so many unfinished projects. Well....let's not kid ourselves...I have planted some lawn and I still need to do a few odds and ends but at least I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.
Getting close...Just need to get lawn planted
