Yesterday Steve and I decided to devote time to yard work. We’ve been so busy these past few weeks that the yard gets very little attention and it’s starting to show. Plus, Michael and Suzanne (master gardeners) are coming this weekend and we didn’t want to be embarassed by an unsightly yard. We worked for about four hours (Steve did more than I did) and things are looking much better. We bought some cedar mulch because it’s supposed to keep away bugs and now the front yard smells like a gerbil cage. All that’s left is the side of the house by the driveway and we should be good for a while. At least we won’t be too mortified when M & S arrive on Friday!
