How Was My Week?


Today is the Day I get to show you the lawn completed to recap what we did to the front yard. We had the landscaping company remove all the old grass, remove two large juniper bushes, and install curbing along flowerbeds and under the big tree. Added gravel to the flowerbeds, installed soaker hoses for flowerbeds, and install automatic underground sprinklers system and add brand new sod. Check out the photos below.


Second, I get to share my bookshelves filled with books. Hubby helped me alphabetize all my books and put them on the shelves. Check out my reading selection below.


Now that those two are completed, we are working on power washing the house and repainting. We have not done that since we painted it back in 2007. So it’s time to wash it up and slap on a new coat of yellow. Inside projects, we still have lots of flooring to install, so depending on the weather, if it is extremely hot, we work inside, and on cooler days, and when the shade is on the sides of the house, we will work outside. We have plans to revamp the backyard, but we have many things to clear out before that can happen.
