Two posts in One!

I was going to oooh and ahhh after spending an hour (or two) in Lowe's yesterday.  But I sort of you can hear about it today.  Our mower hasn't been good enough for the amount of land we have (just under an acre)- so we had to buy a new one.  I told John it was fine to get a ride on, but he declined, both to save money, and because a ride on mower isn't his style.  He got a nice self-propelled one, as well as a weed wacker.  Yay for lawn care!

We also ordered carpet for the kids rooms.  I can't wait- this will basically complete their rooms, outside of some touch up paint work, and new lights.  Oh, and some new curtains rods.  Liam decided to pull out his curtain rods.  It was a bit bit loose to begin with, but made worse by Mr. Destructo.  Really, I know it's a stereotype that boys are more destructive.  And before I had kids, I never believed in Nature over Nurture...but both my kids seem to be determined to prove me wrong.

We also picked up the supplies for my living room shelves.  This has me really excited.  The living room is so close to done!  Well, not really...there's still a lot of physical work to be done.  But we have a lot of the supplies we need to get the job done.  We just need this semester to end.  Did I mention Graduation is this Friday?  Oh yes.  House work will be getting done!

If this rain ever stops (Damn La Nina!) I can get into my garden.  I have my tomatoes and cabbage in the ground (as well as strawberries, blueberries, and cranberries) and I now have cucumber, peppers, various squashes and pumpkins, and watermelon seedlings waiting to be put in as well.  And onions, shallots, potatoes, garlic and asparagus...I also have a bunch of seeds, waiting to be put directly into ground.   Sunflowers, carrots, lettuce, basil, corn...and probably other things, I just can't remember them all.  Pics soon, if it ever stops raining.

So yeah, that's what's going on.  Lots of little stuff, but it's adding up.  It's taking a lot of patience, particularly with all this crappy weather which is basically caging us all in again.  So here's this weeks' Wordless Wednesday- Hoping the Sun returns, and we can have more of this kind of fun.

Not so Wordless Wednesday


  1. YAY for home improvements!! And YAY for husbands who like yard work! :)

  2. Cranberries, eh? You'll have to keep me posted on those. That is something it's never occurred to me to try to grow & I'd love to hear how it works out for you. xo

  3. Yeah, I just happened to see them on sale, so I bought a small bush to plant. Not sure if it'll work out, and I actually didn't do much research about it at the time. I probably should, lol.
