Hello Sunshine...

Night Swimmer No.14

Get Out The Shovel

It's been awhile since I've written (and I really should be packing) but I wanted to share some new work and say hi & bye for the week.  Last week was spent helping all three kiddos get ready for the road trip to Florida with my parents and then the sunshine and 50 degree temps pulled me out into the garden and yard for much of the weekend. C and I moved 150 cement blocks from the driveway and created a walkway around the garden beds which we filled in with pea stones. When we moved into this place last summer the garden was already so overgrown there was no way we could win the war on the weeds so we were determined to get ahead start this year. Then we unloaded and stacked just under 700 pavers which will become a patio sometime this spring (that was an unexpected project but we came across a deal that was too good to pass up!).  All the lifting, stacking and digging has taken it's toll and I am tired and sore and very much looking forward to joining the kids and my parents tomorrow in the sunshine state.  A little swimming, a little pool side reading, and a little Harry Potter sound just about perfect right now. Have a great week and I'll see you back here renewed, refreshed and sunkissed.
