Day in Dirt

Tuesday was a glorious day in my town. Yesterday not so much (snow) today a tad better but by Monday in the SEVENTIES!! WHOO HOO! But back to Tuesday; the day began with my stroller mamas exercise class outside! FINALLY! I officially got my bootie kicked and the soreness has set in so walking or bending over causes me to feel those muscles I seemed to have neglected this winter. But I loved it. So did Petunia because at the end of class she was freed from the stroller to roll around in the grass and even eat a few blades.

But what made this day even better was the fact I got a couple of hours in my yard. My sad depressing yard is getting a makeover this year and I’m super pumped. We worked diligently on the inside of our house (and of course things are never done but so close) but we’ve yet to touch the outside and it shows. So this spring and summer if you should come a knocking you will find us outside raking, hoeing, trimming, planting, tearing up, laying stone, and ripping out bushes, fixing the fence and so much more. I’m thinking I’ll be pretty tan by the time June rolls around! Plus I need to hone these landscaping skillz I am acquiring and what better place to start than my very own yard.

****here’s a side note: my NCAA bracket pretty much stunk up the place by the time the final four rolled around. Guess I was a bit more focused on packing than what team was packing the heat. Oh well, there’s always next year. And of course the year I didn’t pick the Jay Hawks was the year they dominated. What a game! By the way what does Rock Chalk Jay Hawks even mean?

Happy Weekend!

  1. Sounds like a busy summer in the yard……….so much fun though! Glad you let P eat a few blades of grass, good for the digestion (in cats anyway right?)
    Can’t wait to see the yard makeover.

    I have a huge yard. When we bought this house, it was billed as an English garden. Well, English gardens require much work and I am many things, but not a gardener. As I sit outside writing you this comment, I regret that deeply. I wish you could see the dappled trees and the flowers peeping through the fronds in my garden. It is a beauty and unfortunately, I cannot lay claim to having had a hand in it. I don’t deserve this place. But you do.

    Ahhh, a garden! I wish you much happiness in putting down roots in the soil this year.

    By the way, Erin, you WON the book… please email me your address so I can send it out to you ASAP.
