Here I am, late again. I apologize, but I've been so busy working all weekend that I hardly have time for anything else. It feels really good to be so productive each weekend -- on Saturday evenings I feel like the next day should be Monday because I've done so much in just one day. But I never thought I could have so much fun doing manual labor. I am loving owning a home!
I sooo meant to put this picture up last week, but I stuck it in a folder and totally forgot. This is a picture of the snow we had on Easter day:
I do a LOT of work on the front yard this weekend -- about 14 hours worth. But I guess I didn't take very good pictures of it. I raked up 5 large yard bags stuffed full of leaves, pulled a lot of dead plants, planted a row of tulips and daffodils, planted summer bulbs around the mailbox, planted azaleas behind the mailbox, and mulched everything down. I am really mad the pictures didn't turn out that well! I couldn't see the screen on my camera because it was so sunny. I'll see if I can't grab some better pictures this coming weekend.
Also, Alex blames the brown grass on the type of grass, I think it had to do with the 5 large bags of dead leaves I pulled from it. Hopefully it'll green up soon now that it's cleared.
TIP: If you maximize these two pictures in seperate windows, and then switch between the two, you'll see the changes better.

Remember the bathroom? Last week I left you with a big hole in the wall:
The studs have been rebuilt, and drywall was put up:
And now insulation:
And finally, a self portrait:
