Posting 6 days a week has become a habit and it feels really weird when I miss a day. So today I’m mostly just checking in because there’s no real sewing to report. This past weekend was about the yard and preparing for a class I’m teaching this weekend.
For the first time since we’ve lived here we actually hired someone to help with the yard work this year. We do pay someone to mow but have done the minimal amount needed to keep the planting beds up since Mom and Chris created them about 8 years ago. Weeds got out of hand this past year and some overgrown plants needed to come out. Hiring someone was the best thing ever! I still had to do a lot of shopping and was working on other things outside while they were here but everything looks so much better.
Of course the plant that was here was huge and totally hid the AC unit. Hopefully this will grow fast enough to hide it again in a couple of years. The one we took out was too big and the center was all dead.
But the funniest thing is this:
I didn’t like the plant that was in this space. It was huge and filled this whole space. Do you think the new plant (that looked bigger in my car) will have an inferiority complex?
I did have a couple of hours of sewing time and I used it to make some of these blocks.
It sure is making a pretty pile of scraps. I’m having trouble getting these into the trash can.
Today I have a visit to the dentist and then I have to finish raking the gravel back into the driveway before the lawn guy comes to mow this week. I’ve been working on the gravel for 3 weeks a little at a time. It’s a 600’ driveway……I hope we don’t get any snow next year! It takes me twice as long to put the gravel back in the driveway as it took Chris to shovel it out!
