We spent the weekend re-edging the yard, which was destroyed when the septic system was replaced. We then spread the four yards of mulch.

I don’t even want to think about how sore my muscles would be if I didn’t go to the gym!

New yard stuff

Hubby tells me that if I keep buying yard decorations, we’re going to have to put an addition on our shed in order to store it all over the winter! I can’t help it, though. I think I enjoy decorating outside more than I do in!!!!

I picked up this bird house at a craft fair last November and placed it underneath our deck, by the patio, where it would be covered, in hopes that it wouldn’t weather:

“What an adorable decoration!”, I thought. Only, the birds didn’t see it as just some “adorable decoration”:

Look closely (or click the photo to enlarge) – can you see the nesting in there???

Now, how does one NOT continue “decorating” their yard with all the feathered little friends we’ve made since moving in?!?!?!

Then and now

On Saturday, we celebrated my parent’s 50th wedding anniversary (their anniversary is actually in September but I won’t bore you with the details here on why we celebrated now!)

I got some funny looks while taking pictures of their wedding album, but I have plans, people. Plans!

Okay, the plans aren’t that big. I bought them a 50th anniversary photo frame/album and was thinking that a picture from their wedding 50 years ago might make a nice cover.

And here they are today:

Still together and still smiling even!
