D2 taking 2 naps a day is heavenly. I got 2 loads of laundry done, dishes done and a crock pot dinner started. D1 came home shortly after 12:30 so we had lunch and played with toys. I put both to sleep at 3 and decided not to waste this now 70 degree day. I went outside, donned my gardening gloves and went to town. I got all the old leaves out of the flower bed. I pruned my butterfly bushes, I got SOME muck out of the pond. It was a fabulous time. I'm hoping that this is the beginning of spring. What I would do to have 3 months of spring!
Its suppose dot be nice again tomorrow. I have 3 miles to do and then I am going to try to get more pond cleaning done and some cleaning around our ravine edge. I have decided that we want to de-brush it so its usable. CANT WAIT. Last year I was preggo. Even though that didn't stop me from doing yard work I feel like a lot was put to the wayside. This year I have some pretty clear cut design ideas that I want to implement to make the yard look awesome. Pics to come.
