I have been so busy with the yard work for weeks now and I’m so pleased to say that I am about finished with most of it! The power washing is done, little garden planted, grass cut and the tick/ant pellets are spread. Man was I busy yesterday with being outside – it is now staying steady in the 70’s daytime so nice and comfortable – I was out for a a good lot of the day – when I came in inside to either cook or rest I would pick up the Red and Black Checkerboard table topper and do some big stitching and I finished it – and even have the binding machine stitched down – now to do the hand part.
Patchwork of the Crosses has had some progress as well in the evening.
Pretty much all cleaned up now – if you go back a post or two you will see how nasty it was. If you have never used a power washer before and think you might – make sure you have on old clothes – preferably jeans to protect your lower legs as it kicks up a lot of dirt and crud – if you get too close to your legs it will sting - old crappy shoes too!! I learned all this the last time I did it about 3 or 4 years ago. I had to go back later and spray all my plants off as they were nasty dirty looking even though I tried really hard to avoid them. I was really glad to get done with that job and when I started it I really didn’t think it would take me close to two weeks to get it accomplished. I want to put some more flowers around the edges of the garden and need to pick up more annuals. This is about the only place I plant them.
