I was home. Kramer was at the hospital. Craig came to pick the boys up from childcare. Kalissa was working. Craig asked me what I was going to do. I said clean up the house and then write blog posts.
Craig said, you can clean if you want but I was thinking being it’s cool outside and being we have the stuff, we could do the landscape along the house.
WHAT>>>>> YES! The thought had crossed my mind to do that but I didn’t think I could get it finished myself in just one evening. With Craig and I together, yep- I think we could get it done.
It was a mess. I tried to fix it last year but never did feel good about it. You might remember that we landscaped in the front of the house, (also with Craig’s help) Read about that HERE if you missed it.
This section was going to be a little harder. We wanted to put wood chips in the back and be able to plant annuals in the front.
Carver was a great help. He was the cutest EVER! He kept saying, “Joey me do hard work.”..and he really was!!
This is the best picture!!! Craig and Carver working together….
We dug out the front and put in some potting soil so the annuals will grow a little better. The soil that’s there was super compacted.
Gannon was great too!! It’s so cold here that he’s in a light snow suit. He loves the swing so hung out there.
UGH…we ran out of the black landscape covering. Luckily Kalissa was in town and just finishing up work so she ran to Wal-mart and got some more.
With the delay, it was almost 9pm by the time we (Craig) finished.
I sent a message to Kalissa with a picture of the boys. She texted back and said, “I assume supper is at your house??” She was working until 7pm so….I texted back and said, “YES! Pick it up on the way home.”
So supper didn’t get ate until about 9:00pm. I was SO POOPED but so happy to have this finished. Now I can get the annuals. It’s still cold here….today’s high is 50. It doesn’t put me in the planting mood. But now it’s ready I can plant whenever the mood strikes.
Craig is the best…seriously. He was a HUGE help. I’d be lost without him.
