Today was day 3 of my spring yard clean up. Hope everyone is still on board with me working hard. Amazing what things can lead to. While out by the shed I found some cool objects for future projects.
The second photo is from an old bench I used to have. It led me to taking it apart and using part of it to make a sign.
How did I come up with today's saying you ask? How often do you cook, then clean, then it is already time for the next meal, or the kids are in the kitchen making a mess as you put the last dish in the dishwasher and wipe up the last crumb? You all need one of these hanging in your kitchen. (If only it would really work)
Now onto the yard....
I only had about an hours worth of gas left for the leaf blower, so I knew I wouldn't get much of that done, but knew that chipping away for an hour would be better than nothing. I tackled a portion of the side yard.
As usual, doesn't look like I got much done, but I have to deal with these darn things in layers upon layers. And the majority of the time, this is underneath.
So, in that hour, I got a few layers pushed back and two of the side hills done.
I also filled the wheelbarrow twice full of sticks and dumped them off the back cliff.
After that, I decided to clean up the back deck. In the winter we don't go out there and no one really sees it. Hence it becomes the catch all. The trash and recycleables tend to build up because we don't feel like trudging in the snow or cold to bring them to their rightful places. An aqua dresser that needs to be refinished sat out there along with the Sami's area rug that got ruined from the flood.
Please tell me I am not the only one who leaves their dead plants in the hanging basket all winter long. Why I can't just throw this away in the fall is beyond me??????
Do you see my clothes line off to the left behind the dead plant. I can't wait to start using it. I LOVE hanging my clothes out to dry. Should be soon!
Everything still needs a good hosing, but it is still to cold to have pulled that out today. I just got everything picked up. I can't wait to decorate in the spring and have flowers and herbs cascading everywhere.
Again, join up with me this week accomplishing some work around your yard. I know a lot of you still have snow and aren't able to do what I am, but if it is as simple as throwing a dead plant away, you have gotten something done.
So, tell me, what did you get done today?
