All spruced up!

What a gorgeous day!!

Definitely a day to spend in the garden and on the lawn getting things spruced up. With the two days of rain…everything SUDDENLY turned green and colours popped. Ahh…this time of year!

David raked all the dead grass and started at the task of digging the weeds from our lawn. The weeds are unbelievable!!!! We put new grass on our front garden two years ago. And it doesn’t look great this Spring. Last Spring it was  gorgeous! This Spring there is weeds and bare spots. Last summer’s drought and bugs ( because of the drought) did a number on it. ( Besides it’s never good to go on a 3 week vacation in July when there is no rain. No one to water the grass causes problems) Ughh…so…I feel like we are back to square one! Well, not quite that bad BUT it’s not as good as we like. This year we will be at it again when we figure out what the best solution is. The “crazy” weed that you just can’t get rid of or spray for, keeps coming back! Then there is the back lawn…same thing. And the crows have a mess made. So David put seed in an area. We’ll see how that goes!

While David raked, I was in the flower gardens again. It’s surprising how many weeds had grown since I was there the beginning of April. But it took a lot less time to get through them all. *Note to self- Weed gardens regularly!!

We also got out the lawn furniture and cleaned out the garden shed. “Junk Day” is Monday this week and we wanted to put some “junk” curbside so it could ” magically walk away” or get picked up with the trash on Monday.

So while the deck still needs staining and the vinyl on the house washed, and the wooden furniture stained or painted, most things are in place to use this coming Spring/Summer season. We will get at all those jobs checked off the list one at a time!

It just feels so wonderful to be outside!! What did you do this weekend?

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.
