Rose, your true heart and soul is so obviously that of a Hobbit, your home and gardens are utterly gorgeous! Thank you so much for posting those pictures, I'm pretty sure they'll bowl the hubby over. We had a very, very busy weekend so I didn't manage to drag him to the computer to see them yet (and tonight, we're having severe weather warnings so I'm sneaking in a few posts quick before the lightening starts, LOL . . .)
Though this afternoon, he did admit that we need some trees, so maybe there is hope yet.
Frelga, the result will be lovely, even if it takes da hubster a longer time to do it than a professional. It might be male ego, but maybe he just wants the satisfaction of seeing some hard work pay off. There's a certain good feeling when you sweat over something while watching it take shape under your own hands . . . at least that's my version and I'm sticking to it . . .
Vana, I remember as a kid that both my mom and I loved to garden and even though we rented houses, we always improved the yards wherever we lived (within reason expense-wise) . Much to the landlord's delight of course . . .
The hubby unit will be leaving tomorrow, mid morning. I'll get up early and help him put together his "road growlies" and then, I'll have at the very least 4 glorious days of my week off at home without anyone about to get underfoot.
If I'm very lucky, those 4 days will stretch to 5 . . .
I know I won't get through even half of my stack of "To Do" lists, but I plan on giving it the old Herculean College Try.
But I've also decided to schedule regular "breaks" to just put my feet up with a cuppa and maybe stitch or read for a wee while. Otherwise, I'll be even more exhausted when I go back to work than when I left . . .
And just to reduce stress, I've resigned myself to the idea that I'll simply get as much done as I get done . . . although I am picking on the jobs that will net me the most satisfaction (like getting shelves up in my office closet) and the most fresh air (like all the "yard" projects that won't kill me . . .
I hope everyone is enjoying their Labour Day long weekend!
