The Great Outdoors

The great outdoors, a far away place for some. I enjoy the great outdoors. I love to camp, swim, walk, boat, hunt, fish, .... I have grown up watching my mother work in the garden during the summer and I have decided that now is the time for me to follow her lead and continue to enjoy the great outdoors in a new way. My mother has decided to completely tear out her flower gardens this year. If you knew my mother, you would understand that next year she will spend countless hours and money recreating these flower gardens. If mom isn't going to have beautiful flowers for me to sit and look at I am going to have to put in the labor and create my own oasis. Come along for the ride and see how a true novice makes it this year in the flower garden. Who knows, maybe I will even try vegetables next year.

Ideas Building...

Monday I am off for a three day adventure with my aunt and her grandchildren.  We are going on a mini-vacation and it should definitely prove to be an adventure.  I think that I will really enjoy it and be wanting to take another one soon.  I am just a big kid at heart and love to do the touristy stuff on trips.

I just wanted to give an update about the weekend.  I ended up having plans and not getting to meet and discuss any landscaping ideas and plans.  Maybe this coming weekend a few things can get wrapped up though.  I did get to mow the yard on Friday.  I am that weird person that enjoys push mowing a yard.  I just feel such a sense of satisfaction when I complete the yard.  It is time to break out the roundup and weed-eater though.  I meant to get that big limb behind the boat shed cut up this weekend but it just didn't happen.

The plan is that I will get back Wednesday afternoon and will be able to get the yard ready then and Thursday. The in-laws will be coming to stay with us this weekend.  I think they are going to be getting here on Friday and staying until Monday.  I don't mind at all when they come.  I mean, I do hate to clean my house, but my mother-in-law is awesome.  She cooks breakfast and everything.  I don't even have kids yet, it will be even more awesome when that happens.  I thoroughly enjoy sleeping in and still do even when I have company.  I am a good hostess, but I just don't care enough to put forth the effort in the mornings.  I get to clean the house when I get back, too.  I am about to pack and I am very confident that when I leave tomorrow morning the entire house will be a complete wreck.

I do hope to get some ideas from parks and gardens this week while we are on our adventure.  I hope to get some really good pictures, too.  I have the camera charging up as I type.  I wish you a good week of gardening and hope to check in again with ideas to share mid-week.
