i am so thrilled that winter is finally over. even though we really had a very mild winter, it's still too much for me. i like being outside and doing yardwork and gardening and not being cold. so yay to spring!
we spent the weekend cleaning up our backyard, which hasn't seen any kind of gardening tool in probably 10 years. we (jared) had to cut down a bunch of weed trees and then put them in a mulcher we rented. it didn't work too well, so we ended up bundling sticks and having a controlled bonfire in the backyard.
i haven't been feeling too good lately, so mostly i just supervised and watched. next weekend jared has a huge dirt pile that he has to spread around the yard and then he's going to build some raised beds and i'll finally get to plant all my veggies! i'm being smart this year and i planned out everything i'm going to plant on a calendar so that nothing will go to waste.
my mom is coming to visit in a couple of weeks and that has kicked jared into high gear on the house projects. he finally installed closet doors in the study last week and is about halfway done getting our hall closet in shape. hopefully the house will feel a little bigger once all of my closets are done and i actually have some storage!
the honey-do list is getting shorter, but it still seems neverending!
