Hello there everyone!! well Stick a fork in me I'm done..or I am a one woman show..yesterday was a gorgeous autumn day so you gotta jump on them and take advantage of the day..so I set out to rake the leaves, mow the lawn and take care of the front yard portion I have been working on..so here are the before photos..and we are not done yet as there are more leaves that are falling as we speak..kind of a blustery day..not bad and the sun is shining..but you almost can't tell in some portions that I did yard work..but that is part of the fall process.;)
I swept the deck off the house and swept this deck and the little shed deck..
and you see all the leave here..this is the beginning of the raking...
and look at these huge mushrooms..I found about 4 of them and they were about 5-6 inches around..:)
This is the portion Jordan and myself worked on in september..it is so much easier now..but look at all that raking that needs to be done..
finished..see the big piles in the back along the fence..those are going to be tossed over the fence..and hubby is taking care of this..
the piles are huge..
much nicer now..I got rid of big stick/tree branches so when we push the lawn mower through it now when the leaves are done..we have a nice mulch bed and we don't have sticks getting caught in the blades..
then onto mowing..I love a freshly mowed lawn..;) this was the easy part..and suprisingly my arms don't hurt..just my lower back and gluts hurt..slept with a heating pad last night..that helped.
I also trimmed up the plants on the deck like the parsley shown at the left of the photo..much nicer now.;)
then onto the front portion of the yard..that was mondays work and yesterdays in that wheelbarrow..hubby is also taking care of emptying this..
got a bit more of landscaping...still have more to do..
but this kid was tired after 3-1/2 hours of work..that hot shower felt good..it is coming along and is almost done..which is great..cause then I don't have to worry about it this winter..just the occasional walk about and that is it..Today I mopped and cleaned floors and cleaned sinks and bathrooms..and did some light dusting..I am done..the inside and out are looking good..and I can do some sewing I hope..we are having our enrichment night at one of our church members house and we are making bread and learning different recipes from one dough recipe..can't wait to share what I have learned..Take care and I hope your thursday is a good one.;) I have reached 300 followers..so I must think of something for a giveaway..Thanks to all of you for thinking that I am worthy of following..your comments always brighten my day and I love this thing called blogging.;)
p.s. did anyone watch Martha Stewarts halloween special on hallmark with Brendon Frasor..it was a good one.:) I love her holiday specials.:)
