This weekend, we made a big dent in our DIY backyard landscaping. We had a couple of estimates from the home show we attended, but decided we could do the bulk of the work ourselves. Now, we understand why everyone we know over 50 whose seen our Dream says, “It has a lot of potential, but you’re young. You can handle it.” At the time, we thought “Huh?” Now we know – and we have the aching backs to prove it!
The achievements of the weekend can be summed up in one big pile of…
Once a month, we have a bulk trash pickup and we took FULL advantage of that this month! The “rules” state that the collectors cannot be at your house longer than 20 minutes. Our pile is so big, we’re a bit worried they’ll leave some behind. Hope not!
So, we can’t reveal exactly what’s going on in the backyard, but here is a sneak peak…
We figure we have about a month to get the project finished before the real desert heat sets in and makes it difficult for new plants to grow – and even more difficult for Dreamers to work outside.
In other news, Mrs. Dreamer took a break from some of the fun in the back yard to hang out with the gals.
We were MOH’s in each other’s weddings – she made me wear salmon and I made her wear dusty blue (neither was that bad – I don’t think!). And now, my sweet friend, Carrie is having a baby girl! So, we surprised her with a fun shower and I made a dress – she was as shocked as everyone else. 🙂 But this is cause to celebrate… the new little one is a Dream come true. She’ll have two big brothers to look after her and we all cannot wait to meet her in June.
