I'm out back...Come on around!

I want y'all to know, I have never worked so hard, in our yard, as I have for the past week!   After all that rain we got, I have had to mow, this acre, twice and it probably could have used one cutting in between!  Lordy, that grass grows fast!  

Even though the rain stopped, apparently the water has not drained off very well!  I was mowing the ditch, which looked dry, and suddenly started sliding and ended up stuck in the muckiest muck, I've ever seen!  I had to call my Mister to come rescue me!  He was so not happy!  Yikes!

I've also been trying to clean out the flower beds and plant a few hostas and such.  Only got one done.  I think the rose and lilac gardens are going to have to wait until fall.  I want to move those plants but can't do it now because it is too hot and I don't want to kill them.  Nemo obviously loved the newly worked dirt.  She scratched around trying to find bugs for quite awhile.  Funny chicken!

I've also spent a lot of time watching the kiddos play in the wading pool.  It's been so hot and they love the water.  I make them go inside during the hottest part of the day, though!

Of course, me and my little buddy stay in the shade!  He laughs and talks to the trees blowing around.  Such a joy!

Well, I need to get back outside and paint the chairs my Mister found.  I love them but it's going to be a lot of work to make them pretty again!

Grace & Peace

  2. Rain is a blessing around here . . . please send us some, LOL. You got me on old chairs . . . there is nothing I enjoy more than blogging re-dos on furniture, and chairs are one of my favorites.

  3. How the heck did I miss your last four posts!! The baby looks so cool and content there in the shade. That's so nice. Our grass grows like crazy too! In fact, it's never been so lush and green. We have had lots of rain.
