Working in the Yard (Finally!)

It gets harder and harder to pull myself away from the news each morning.  It’s not a big deal on my days off but on my work days… Yesterday went really really well!  We didn’t get any rain but we did get some sun and the kids and I took advantage!  I got the gardens around the pond, the rock garden and the garden along the back of the house all raked out.  I also cleaned the back porch off of debris so we can sit and enjoy the weather.  Inside I got a wooden bookcase fixed (most of the shelves had split on a seam and needed to be reglued) that should be ready for use this afternoon when I get home.

Rain is in the forecast for the next few days off and on so that should get rid of the last of the snow.  The temps are getting steadily warmer and the lows aren’t as low.  So I think we will be able to spend more time outside.

Today’s goal after work is to find seeds and dirt.  I will make some phone calls at work to see who has what.  If they answer their phones.  I also need to get eggs.  We need them and I need cardboard egg cartons to start the seeds in.  I am really excited about getting started with this.  Hopefully I can pick up seeds that we can use and share with neighbors if necessary.  This also means cleaning up the three raised beds in the far yard.  I need to also find out if the garden hose will reach that far for watering.  If not I will have to figure something else out.

I see by the clock I have used up my alotted time.  Stay safe and thanks for reading!  I hope you have  great day!
