On the right path

Well as you know we are doing yard work as our main projects for the summer. The front garden was a lot of work but really didn’t take a long time to do, not compared to the back. The front grass looks so wonderful, and I am really happy we went with the sod route. It’s a much faster and more gratifying solution.

BUT, this backyard, like I said will be a whole summer’s project. I had certain goals in mind to have accomplished before our two week vacation, which starts after tomorrow, but its not gonna happen. It’s just taking longer. We’re on the right path…but that’s where we are…PATH!

One of the projects is to create a pathway from our side stairs to the garden shed and it’s started, but it’s taking longer than expected. We decided to put the stones in the lawn so we can easily mow, rather than create a rock or gravel path. I didn’t realize there could be so many rocks and tree roots in one lawn. This is also a project I can’t really help with besides being there to be an encouragement and a “goffer” for things if David needs them.  So it’s still a work in progress and then we are soon on vacation and other than a little bit if we feel like it, I didn’t want garden and yard work to be on the agenda for vacation.

Oh well, it will get done…hopefully before the snow falls…haha

Just a few pics of the backyard progress…

Adventure For Two

I am from Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, Canada and I'm back from traveling with my husband on an expat assignment to foreign lands. 2011-2012 we were in Shenyang, China. Spring 2012- Spring 2013 we were in Resende,RJ Brazil then back to Shenyang, China in July 2013 until the end of July 2014. Expat life WAS amazing! Adventure abounds no matter where we travel to. We really enjoyed the amazing opportunity to live and experience culture and tradition in these places. BUT now we are finished and adjusting to life in our small town in Canada. Our days of travel and adventure are not over.
