When planning my post for today, the only logical choice seemed to be outdoor spaces. Reason being, I am spending all weekend and Monday (I have the day off) landscaping my backyard. Yesterday we dug out the whole yard to remove the “grass” (I use quotes because it should be grass but instead is mostly weeds). Today my parents are coming over to help, and we’ll be laying stones over the entire yard and adding some garden areas. It’s a pretty small yard thankfully so this shouldn’t be too difficult. I just have to get through the day without killing my father and/or my boyfriend. Both are not the funnest people to do projects with. Wish me luck.
Since Jo is just heading off to work I thought I’d take this opportunity to plug her gorgeous artwork (since she won’t be able to check the blog for HOURS). She sent me a package back in April and having FINALLY received it yesterday, it included 4 pieces of art that she drew. They are so amazing and I am so proud of her that I had to post them. I think I may have convinced her to open an Etsy shop so please feel free to leave comments and maybe she’ll realize she REALLY REALLY should sell her art. (Sorry about the quality of the photos, it’s raining here so I can’t get good light).
I am a shoes-off-in-my-house kind of person. I don’t know where your shoes have been…if you have a rock stuck in the treads and are going to scratch up my floors, or if you didn’t notice the neighbour’s dog’s little treat he left on the lawn that you managed to step in. If you’re embarassed to ask for shoes to be removed, then why not spell it out for people? (I’m not that anal about it, really, but I thought this was really cheeky).
P.S. My stones and wood garden ties just arrived from Rona. Let the landscaping begin!
