Spring sprucing

by Jessie K on April 28, 2014

IMG_7070She’s only four months old and is already excavating the property with her Daddy.

IMG_7071This is Father/Daughter Time, Jake style. They spent, no lie, an hour ripping up our property together. She loved it.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAIt was a good weekend to get a few things done around the place. First, Jake ripped out the old fence line. (Can you tell where it was?)

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAHe ripped out the old chain link gate and that nasty old dish network satellite. I can’t stand those things! They’re an eyesore. Apologies to all the dish network satellite fanatics out there.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThen he planted a bunch of new grass seed.


And here’s me holding a fine feathered friend who flew right into our window pane and died. Poor little bugger. I found him on the front porch. I couldn’t just leave him there….I had to pick him up and give him a proper burial. I nestled him behind a tree in the woods.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI’m trying to decide how to decorate our porch. I don’t want to spend a bunch of money, but I want it to be nice and relaxing because I plan to spend A LOT of time out there this spring and summer. So far, I’m using all our old stuff — except for that yellow rockers, that’s new — and thinking of easy ways to rehab it.  How do you rehab wicker? Any ideas?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI think it’s safe to say spring is here.

(Now watch. We’ll get a foot of snow tomorrow.)
