Weekend Round-Up

4 Jun

This past weekend was one of the first weekends we’ve enjoyed being at home and taking on some new projects. One project we had been meaning to get to was this one:

Weeds, corn-hole game boards, empty shipping boxes from wedding gifts – just stark ugliness. It was gross out there and made us feel like our cats were forced to play in dump-like conditions.

After about a week of work, wedding, evening the ground, laying sod, buying plants and pots, we finally put something together that is worth sitting out to enjoy.

Tip – save money on colorful pots by purchasing terra cotta pots and bright spray paint. Two coats of paint will give your pots a fun, colorful look.

As always, we balanced out hard yard work with some play. Sunday was definitely a Sunday-Funday. We enjoyed some local wine tasting and rounded out the evening with wine and heavy appetizers with good friends in our new little backyard.

      Thanks! It was fun to do – there is still more to be done, but at least it is something we can enjoy!
