Wow! It’s the middle of June already. We had such a mild May that it seems we’ve already had a month of summer, which is fine by me! It hit 105 on Saturday. Glad we were in Pueblo where it was only 100!
Life around our house has been very busy but rewarding. We’ve been doing a ton of yard work and are finally seeing some fruit of our labors in the form of…
Grass! Yep, doesn’t take much to thrill us, does it?! For those of you who have had lawns forever this might not be such a big deal. But if you’ve lived in a home that was previously neglected for years, prompting grass to grow is a huge deal.
Our backyard is pretty big, and because our town is on a watering schedule we’ve had to seed in sections. We’ve also had to pay for an extra two hours a day (a 3-week permit). So, we’re getting there and by the end of the summer it’ll be looking good.
We’ve got the garden planted with peppers, zucchini, spinach, cantaloupe, tomatoes and green beans.
I never realized how much I enjoy working out in the yard.
The swimming pool opens tomorrow, so Grace and I will be heading over there for a refreshing afternoon. Because it’s not heated and being the weenie that I am, I’ll wait a few weeks before dipping my toes in. It’s fun, though, watching those die-hard kiddos shivering with their blue lips yet going in for more!
It’s All Loving Summer Good!
