So I have been working on a post or two, but have run into something I can’t quite figure out! (FYI – Blogging used to be so much easier, before it became a “thing” and some of the advancements have only complicated the process…) I have a post with multiple links – only when I want to post it, the links don’t look like LINKS! It’s hard to know what to click when the link isn’t obvious, right?
I have been a little bit frustrated and haven’t figured out the problem. I have googled. I have checked with my blog theme source. I am still researching. So I have been a little bit bummed cuz I can’t post what I want to post!
We did spend most of the weekend working on our yard. We have a house sitting on just about one acre of land, and most of it is yard – not wooded, no brush, etc. Although if I want to be honest, about half of it could be considered “field” which I think means it does NOT have to be mowed, but my husband differs in his opinion on this, so we have typically kept it mowed. The field area is a runoff for a neighbor’s pond, so it generally stays somewhat wet until mid-Summer when things get hot and sunny. Riding a mower through a wet field, while trying to mow wet knee high grass is just not pretty. On top of that, our riding mower is having some issues with starting – so it is a bit wild right now.
If we had a horse, it wouldn’t be an issue. But that would require housing and fencing and we don’t have that just yet, either. NOT that we want a horse. I’m just sayin’.
Instead, we worked on the projects we COULD manage. Greg & I spent time pushing mowers through the jungle, er grass, around our house. Kids helped do some weeding and cleaning up. We got some plants and started working on some landscaping around the front of our yard. We bought 3 Lavender plants for the yard. I also got my planter with Thyme, Lemon Balm and Chocolate Mint! We got Curly a small rose bush to learn to take care of, as well. In between rainstorms, we sat on our back deck and enjoyed watching the birds, bunnies, and squirrels in neighbor’s yards, while our kids played and had a water gun / water balloon fight. We ate lots of watermelon, got together with friends and feel like summer has already come to stay!
This is the last week of school for the kids. Mostly fun stuff for them, and my work schedule is shifting back to 2 days a week. Greg is settling into his new schedule, and we look forward to some blooming fun!
