Ever since we’ve moved into our house we’ve focused on one project a year. The first year we gutted out kitchen, the second year we replaced all the closet and bedroom doors downstairs and then last year we replaced the roof. This year we’re focusing on other outdoor stuff. Mainly, putting up lattice around the deck, replacing our fence, aerating our yard and replacing a few boards on our deck. Eric finished the lattice yesterday so that’s one thing we can check off our list.
I’ve pretty much spent the last week outside trying to get all of the beginning of spring stuff done. I cleaned out the garage (we’re talking shelves and everything), pulled weeds in front, planted flowers, painted my flower boxes, stained our front step, mowed, cleaned up dog stuff, uncovered and cleaned off all of our patio furniture and the kids’ stuff (playhouse, slide, swing set, etc). Tomorrow I’m going to try to stain my patio furniture, add mulch to my flowerbeds and pull the weeds in the backyard. I think I’m going to add borders to my flowerbeds in back but I need to figure out what I want my borders to be. I’ll also have to wait to stain my deck until we’ve replaced those boards.
So, if you’re looking for me, I’ll be outside.
