Just a few weeks ago I was complaining that owning a home is hard work. It really is. But the inside I can <mostly> handle. And even though it can get a little messy and dirty from time to time, its nothing compared to the outside care. Just recently I noticed every house in our neighborhood has this mold growing on the side.
We also need to do some weed and feed…..like…everywhere.
And the poor hibiscus always end winter looking like they got a bad haircut.
Then of course there is last years unfinished gardening, bushes that need serious trimming, dead spots in the yard and those damn red ants that just seem to relocate.
And yes…this is REALLY my yard right now. We just totally neglect it when it gets cold outside.
I am very much looking forward to getting back on our toes, getting the weeds out and getting that new grass growing. I am also thinking of selling the big major yard swing set to put in a soccer goal and have some space for a few water slides. I guess we will see how much Charlotte freaks out when I mention that.
All that above shown, and even with the walls that need fixed and painted in here, I am so happy to have a yard and a house! I never forget to count those blessings. Of course if our identity had ever been stolen, getting a house would have been much harder…if not impossible.

Now I know some of you are still fighting winter snow, but it wont be long till the sound of lawn mowers fill the neighborhood. Heck, the ice cream man came through just yesterday!
Does your yard look anything like mine or were we just extra neglectful this year?
