I woke up early on Sunday morning, showered, and got ready for the day before the kids got up. Figured I'd be ready for whatever we'd plan to do.
I did not know we were going to do yard work. A man dropped off 6.5 yards of mulch and 2.5 hours later it was gone. It's amazing what fresh mulch can do.
We were going to re-do everything in the existing front landscaping, but decided not to. It's not our taste, but it looks decent. Now, we just need to add some plants in the front and in the back and landscaping should be done for the summer. And we need to do something around the play set. Rubber mulch? We're still thinking. And the deck will need to be power washed and re-stained. For the past 3 years landscaping projects have taken over our summers and we're tired of it. Last summer was tough because of Vaughn and The Move, so we're not letting anything take control of this summer.
The day ended with another shower. We all still have mulch dust in our ears and in our nose. (Except Vaughn. She was excellent and napped through the mulching.)
