Good thing I was able to work in my flower gardens before it got too hot. It has been alot warmer this week and full of sunshine so I won’t be complaining. You all know that I love sunshine! Anyway, I have been weeding alot in my gardens and must say that I don’t think that job ever ends. It is constant. I think I could pull buckets and buckets of weeds, go out the next day and find more. Ughhhh, that is one thing I hate about having all of these flower gardens. My flowers bring me so much happiness and plenty of time to relax, but when I am done…… well, there is not much more time for anything else (lol). Anyway, I took some pictures and thought I would share them with you today. Here are pics that I took this week.
Now for my front yard flower beds……
WOW ~ Is that flower garden overload or what?!? During these past couple weeks I have had a little extra time to make a couple things and start on a project. I will first of all show you what I made. Very easy and simple!! I used a dry gourd and made sure that I cleaned all of the dirt and mold off of it first. Here is the before picture.
With a little water and a sharp knife used to scrap…… I was able to get all of that junk removed. Once it was clean and smooth then I simply attached some wire and drilled a hole. Once the hole was drilled then I cleaned out the inside and hung it up. It is now a perfect little bird house. I have plenty of birds in my backyard so I thought by having a few more rentals that we should be good to go. Cameron and I joke around that the monthly rent is only 5 worms (lol).
My one and only project that I am currently working on is taking up all of my free time right now. Do you all remember this beauty? Alot of you said that you wouldn’t paint it, but I had to in order to keep the smell of grease, oil and old dirty barn to a minimum. I applied 3 coats of primer to this cupboard and a coat of black paint so far. I will be working on applying my top coat of red today. The before and after pictures are coming soon, but this should hold you over until then.
My goal is to have it totally finished by this weekend. If that does happen then I will be sure to post pics early next week. Keep Watching!!
Of course I had to share a picture of my little man with you. We were out playing with the water hose the other day. Cameron was chasing me around and was trying his best to get me wet. He actually did quite a few times, but I think Mommy took the lead. Here are a few pics from our fun water day. enjoy!!
Just like that last picture…… we were worn out from all that playing. After this post…… I am worn out (lol). Hope you all are doing well. Hope to see you back early next week for the BIG reveal.
Until Next Time ~ Blessings, Lisa
