Mother's Day

I am so terrible about this! I meant to tell you all about my Mother's Day, and now it's Friday. Bad me.

While Jacob and I were at church, Chris went out and got me a couple bags of organic compost, three tomato plants, and a bunch of seeds for a garden! I've been bemoaning the fact that I do not have one for a long time, so it's great to know he actually listens to me.

We went out to get the rototiller right away, but after Chris struggled with one tiny patch of dirt for over 30 minutes, we decided that we'd have to rent a better tilling machine. Luckily, we got to borrow one for the week and now I have a fourth of the backyard as a garden. Chris tilled up the land and got a truckload of manure that we spread out and it's now ready for planting. We're going to head out and do that as soon as I finish writing.

The 2nd gift I get is that the dogs no longer get the whole backyard to themselves to completely trash! We're going to block off most of it to keep for us. So we're going to be putting in a sprinkler system and sod before the end of this month. It will be so nice to have a place to go play in the mornings or eat out at night. Our front yard is fine, but really tiny. The backyard has just been over run with weeds, stickers and dog poop, so it will be a big change to have something nice out there. But it also means we will have to clean it on a regular basis. And that is not my favorite thing to do!

I hope your day was good as well!

That sounds great! Also, isn't it nice to be listened to and remembered? It feels so good to know that your partner was hearing your dreams!
