Yardwork

Well it’s that time of year again! Spring has sprung and our yard looked awful! I wish I would have taken a “before” pic to show you the clovers that were taller than Bella and how the weeds were taking over the grass! Well, Bobby has this high ankle sprain, so being the kind person that I am, I decided to help him with the yard, which I NEVER do. take care of my flowers, and pull weeds, but the grass, etc. is his job.
Yesterday was a beautiful day for it too. The day started with a GREAT 5 mile run in the sunshine. I ran at a really good pace for me, and it just felt good, not labored and painful like one of my awful 4 mile runs of last week. SO after the run we went to a wedding, then came back and worked in the yard.
I mowed part of the yard, edged the whole front, used the blower, pulled weeds, fertilized with the spreader, and watered the grass. Whew! I am a little sore this morning, pushing the mower up the hill in the back = pain. I LOVE a nice clean yard though. My dad is obsessed with our yard, and growing up it always looked perfect, so now I of course love a nice yard. Bobby doesn’t care quite so much so sometimes it’s a struggle!
Here is a nice picture of our front yard. The only thing we didn’t get to do was weed eat around the trees etc. b/c the weed eater died and went to weed eater heaven.

and here is a picture from my sunny warm run. No, the mustang is not about to hit me, it was parked!

QOTD: Do you work in your yard? Do you enjoy it?

  1. The yard looks great! Sorry about Bobby’s ankle! That’s a bummer! Oh yeah, and good job on the run! :0)

  2. I recently planted some carrot seeds. I don’t have a green thumb but I REALLY want to! LOL
