I had an extremely productive weekend, although I didn’t do anything I had actually planned on doing (for the most part). I meant to spend the weekend getting the inside of the house under control. I had let it go last week from severe lack of sleep. I ended up outside instead! Which outside needs a ton of attention too. Even more than the two days I gave it.
The first part of Saturday was uneventful. I slept uber late since someone was up all night.
(he had his first ice cube Friday afternoon, hilarious)
We have discovered that he definitely has his nights and days flipped. So, my new goal when I get off work during the week, WEAR HIM OUT! He spends so much time sleeping in his crate during the day, he’s ready to play at night. The weekends are much better. He doesn’t get crated much and spends all day playing outside.
I got out and mowed the yards Saturday afternoon and gave the crazies a bath. Which totally wore them out.
Sunday, I was outside ALL. DAY! My Dad came by in the morning and helped us out with some yard work. We weeded my poor flower beds (they were awful) and trimmed up my two little trees (I’ll have before and after pics when we finish up the other bushes and stuff). We had tons of help too! Remember those baths Saturday evening? Pointless! LOL
We stopped and had lunch around 11-ish (totally didn’t get a pic of the food). We also did a little piddling around at the old house and made a Lowe’s trip.
I headed back home after that to do some more stuff outside. My project! A Fall “porch” garden! I have to put so much weed killer on the actual garden, it won’t be plantable until next Spring. Yep, I let it get that bad. Here is the designated corner.
I have two rod-iron little tables that were my Mom’s. They were in pretty bad shape though.
I gave them a good coat of black spray paint, cleaned up the glass, now they look brand new! So, they are part of my garden corner. I rounded up a bunch of pots, dirt and some seeds.
A couple hours later! Viola!
I couldn’t find my carrot seeds (have no clue where I put them). So, I have to get some more and plant them still. That’s what the yellow paper is in the one planter, my marker where the radishes end.
I think it turned out cute! Now, if it grows is another story…
By this point, with the heat and all the running around the back yard, I had two exhausted pups! We took a quick water break in the shade. It took everything they had to stay awake!
I started dinner once I got everything all cleaned up, eggplant parmesan!
I used sting cheese on top. Haha! It worked!
I’m happy to say my efforts to keep the dogs up paid off! They were so tired they didn’t even care people food was around. We kept waking them up too! Mean, maybe? But man I need sleep!!
Here are some more random veggie food pics (which I did a horrible job documenting again)! This is my final week as a vegetarian.
Told you it was a horrible job.
Hope you had a great weekend! I’m ready to crash!
