What a busy weekend. Josh and I have spent a lot of time working on our yard this weekend. We haven’t done anything for the yard since we bought the house with the exception of the flower bulbs I planted last fall. Therefore our yard needed a little TLC and still does. On Saturday I spent a good portion of the afternoon removing weeds and cleaning debris out of the landscaped corner of our yard. Josh spent time removing branches and mowing the lawn. I learned that leaves that aren’t raked in the fall do not disappear on their own. Rather, they wait for Spring and are even harder to be removed :-(.
On Sunday, we went to Natorp, Home Depot and Lowes to pick out Mulch. We settled on Scotts Dark Brown with Color Protection as the color lasts a whole year and should be fade resistant. After mulching a good part of Sunday afternoon we discovered the colors of the different bags did not match 100%…very disappointing. We noticed a little as we went but thought it was a moisture variation so we went on, after all some of the mulch was even frozen. Josh ended up calling Scott’s to complain and they are giving us a full refund! So we will re-mulch to make it all match.As far as the outdoors goes, we also purchased a grill this past week and we’ve been looking at patio sets. The problem is, every set we see we like only seats 4 and we want something for at least 8 people. Guess we’ll have to keep on looking.
My birthday is this week! I went to Hofrahaus to celebrate Jordan’s bithray (he shares my birthday) but we didn’t do an official dual celebration as I am having a birthday party at our house on Wednesday. We will be grilling kabobs and gourmet burgers. Even though it’s going to be frigid, I can’t wait!
