I spent all day Friday in the yard. It has frosted really hard the last 3 mornings so the rock wall I the front was impossible to weed. I spent my time in the back yard. The strawberry plants and blueberries are weeded. The garden is ready to plant. I have my mini green house out with my seedlings underneath it. The pond in up and running. All the flower boxes are up and full of soil waiting for planting. I still have some work to do around the wood pile and a little around the pond. Also the back large berms need attention. But things are looking good.
Now I really have not touched the front, however I believe I will have the beds done before the end of the week. As long as the weather holds. The front is easier to care for then the back. I have everything in perennials now. We have decided to rock the very front this year. I also need to buy mulch.
My little sister and I started to make cushion covers for her back deck, but did not complete them. I finished up the four cushions last night and am working on making her some place mats and mug rugs out of the scraps. I want to get these in the mail on Monday so she can have them by Easter.
Mom and I had such a nice time yesterday after the breakfast. We took a nap, had a lot of laughs and then had a late lunch on the deck. Then we just sat and talked for 3 hours. We have not had any time together that has not been run, run, run for over a month. It was so nice just to have a peaceful day and time to waste and chat. I get that so seldom.
Mom is feeling better I think and then she surprises me when I see how really weak she has become. It worries me. Sometimes she can barely make it around a grocery store. She gets very frustrated with herself and it makes me sad.
Well I need to get in the tub and wash off yesterdays dirt from the gardening.
Have a peaceful and restful Sabbath.
