I got to play in the dirt today!
It was a gorgeous day outside, so we decided to go to Home Depot to pick up some flowers to do the flowerbeds out front. These flower beds haven't been worked on in many years, so it was REALLY exciting to see them transform from dust bowls to fully-mulched gardens.
My favorite part was getting to walk through the store and just pick out anything that looked pretty. I am good at that! And flowers aren't too expensive, so we got to buy a whole bunch of them. When we got home, the hubby did most of the hard work with getting the soil ready to plant and setting up the edging. I helped more with the decorative side instead of the manual labor as I'm still feeling not-so-great some days. The munchkin toiled around and picked up any trash left behind and helped to pick the rocks out of the flower beds. We all got a lot of much-needed sunlight! I think I'm the only one who didn't get burned. (I will admit I hid out in the shady areas as much as possible to try to protect my poor eyes that can't take the sun full-on these days...)
Now it's back to the work and school weeks and hopefully back to our normal lives.
Fingers crossed that this week brings good things.
Mother and wife by day, psych RN by night. So many different ways to view life. I try to take everything in and be very slow to judge.
