Outside Progress

I could also title this post something like "Labor of Love" because that is exactly what my sweet husband is doing outside. I'm so proud of how hard he's been working out there -- not to mention it's been over 100 most days this past month!

Unfortunately yard work is not always as instantly gratifying as painting a room or changing out a light fixture. The kind of yard work he's doing is going to take some time. Regardless, I thought it would be nice to keep his hard work documented so we can FULLY appreciate it when it's all complete!

After having 22 trees cut down in the back yard and trees trimmed in the front, Will is re-working the landscaping (or lack there of). Since the planting of grass won't happen till fall he is keeping busy re-building rock walls, making nice paths along the side of the house, and raking up all the dead stuff... :)

This path runs along the side of the house-- leading from the driveway to the backyard.


Will is currently working on this walkway in our backyard.
I'm so thankful for his motivation to take care of these projects!

One day (when it wasn't 100+ degrees) I ventured outside for a little work too! My work consisted of spray painting our patio table & chairs as well as re-finishing a gliding bench that the previous owners left.
