Nice Weather for

Yep we've been having some nice weather for working in the yard. So a couple days this week we worked out in the yard trying to get it whipped back into shape. It's been let go for several years now basically because I just didn't feel good and just didn't do it. I kept the grass mowed but that's about it. After I got to be a diabetic I just didn't have the energy to fight it anymore. I had been basically doing it alone but the husband has started helping me with it now. We really made a dent in some of the beds today. One of the larger beds was loaded down with stickers. They were very large ones to!! We pulled them out this evening until it got too dark to see what we were doing. I'm sure there is still some of the smaller ones left in it. He said he was going to get back out there tomorrow if he was able. We're both sore as can be.
I was wearing shorts today and told DH, who would have ever thought I'd be out working in the yard in Jan. in shorts? lol It was just that warm here! Buddy is having a total blast out there with us and wants to STAY right under us! Today DH had laid the shovel and the pitch fork against the back of one of the lawn chairs and it slid off the chair and hit Buddy smack in the head. I had JUST told him, you better get back, and then whack! He yelped and then ran off but was right back under us shortly after that. Silly dog. Anyway he's loving it outside.
So if I don't post much in the next few days, I'll be working in this poor yard or painting the bedroom one or the other. lol

Sounds like you made a lot of progress! Can't believe you are wearing shorts. Even though I'm just a few hours north of you, it has been pretty chilly here lately. I'll bet that little Buddy is cute as can be "helping" you in the yard. : )

We actually got to work some more this evening in the yard.
Oh yeah, was wearing shorts. DH said it got up to 75 or something close to that the day we were working out there.
