Coffee & A Chat – Gardening

When we bought our house two years ago (I can’t believe it’s already been that long), we bought it as an estate sale. The previous owners had built it and lived in it for most of their lives. (Built in 1949.) So in their later years, before they both passed, they let the gardening go by the wayside. The yard was kept up but the gardens slowly grew over with grass. We decided this was the year we’d dig them out and I would try my hand at gardening. Something I haven’t done since I was a kid.

We weeded, planted, mulched and fenced our little hearts out and I thought I would share the results:

This was all weeds and rocks.

What are you planting this year? What is your favorite thing about gardening??

Birthday Haul #2 AND #3

Well I did not get to pop in like I intended to. When I wasn’t celebrating my birthday I was learning how to build out a room. Hang dry wall, tape and mud. The whole shebang. My bathroom now has a functioning vent and my walk-in closet is on it’s way to looking like an actual room. We will probably still be working on things for the next couple of weeks but my dad has left so it will be slower going while we work on it after work and on weekends.

Anywho, my birthday was fabulous. I got amazing presents from people who know me well and I’ll share them with you now. (Plus, Ignited Moth came over and spoiled me and then we ended up at the bar, with margaritas. Holy margaritas.)

Ignited Moth prezzies! This girl knows my soul. Not pictured is my favorite chocolate milk in the world and a book that will be arriving soon. ^.^

Okay, I’m off to catch up on all the blogs that I can before work!

Belated Birthday Haul

I’m spoiled rotten by the ones that love me and I’m not afraid to admit it. I had a fantastic birthday and decided I should flaunt some of my gifts.
