Catching up.....

For the past two years, my neighbors have infrequently edged parts of my yard, but there have been spots that have never been edged since I bought my house. And with St. Augustine grass, that makes for a messy sidewalk or driveway.

So, I finally broke down and bought an edger. And did a pretty good job, if I do say so myself.

What I've done so far today:

  • put together the edger
  • mowed
  • weed eated (is that really a word?)
  • edged
  • used my vacuum/blower to suck up all the grass mess from the initial edging

Still to come today:

  • Henry's 4th birthday party at Pump it Up
  • hanging my fire extinguisher in the garage so it is at the ready, just in case
  • Kelly's lingerie shower


In other news, I casually mentioned something about painting my front door when I was home for mom's surgery. The response from my family reminded me that I never posted pictures! Also, I finally found something to hang to the left of my kitchen window (WAY on sale last night at Kohl's).

So, here is a look at the (mostly) finished front porch. Still would love to have a screen door -- and in my spray painting, I didn't tape off quite enough of the trim, so I'm trying to figure out how or if I want to touch that up. If I do get a screen door, I think that would camoflauge most of that issue.

Lookin' good! I like the "hanging" by the window -- plenty big without being too much.
