Landscaping at my house

I finally broke down and did a little landscaping in my yard. I always thought it would just be more work...and it is. I LIKE it. I planted two trees and added a garden in the front of the house. I wanted to extend the garden wall all the way to end the end of the house. Drats! Two stumps were in the way. I also added a picture of the mamma deer that lives in the pasture directly on the other side of the barbed wire fence in my back yard. She has twin fawns. They were so camofaged I could not get a good pic of them. What was I thinking wanting to sell my house? I'm keeping it damn it! Anyone what to be my roomate?

I don't see any trees or a garden. It's looks like your lawn is mowed, though. Speaking of "mowed lawns", ahem, you don't have to worry about that with Jerid. He likes wading through the weeds. Think about it.

Here we are spilling our house purses.

I have a deck, darn it Holly I hired someone a week before you offered Kevin's carpentry services.

I don't have steps yet, but I have a deck. I should take pics, now, but it's dark.

I'm cooked, it's been a rough couple of weeks. I can't seem to get enough sleep...I'm in bed by eight.

I am officially an old lady, again.

Oh well, it's keeping me on my feet and all held together.

The garden is cool as heck, I can see all kinds of stuff growing there next year. The deer sure likes to hang out near you.

love and light

Holly, enlarge the picture and look for a tree on each side of the house, in the front.

Holly, he is too young to wade in my weeds.

Holly said...

Ok, I see trees now! They're very pretty. I'm quite impressed.

My shithead brother planted a tree once when he was around 14 years old. He still loves it and drives by sometimes to see it.

I was looking at your photos for some time, then realized, 'I've been here!' and then freaked, because none of it looks familiar, then reassured myself, because it was both dark and raining when last I visited. It was very strange.
Thanks for letting me spill that.
It can't possibly compare to Holly's weedy innuendo, but I'm so far behind anyway, I deserve to be boring.

Can't wait to see you guys!!!

Becky ~ There is just about nothing that can do more for a house's curb appeal than landscaping! COOL! ~ jb///

Damn fuckin' straight you're keeping your house!

THAT's what I'm talkin' 'bout!

Because of this post, I'm changing the working title of my book from, "Jesus Christ, Mom USED To Be So Much Fun!" to "Becky's Keeping her House, and, God Damn It, So Can YOU!"

Proud to know you, sister! Wish I were able to tag along for your gathering later this month!

Hey crazy woman.

I just wanted to let you know that I'm still out here, thinking of you every day. Wishing I could take it all away.

I agree, my friend. When a family losses one of its key elements, a man that was loved as much as Randy was, it does seem strange and unnatural just to pick up and start a new family. I don't have a lot of wisdom to share about that at the moment without further contemplation. But I just wanted to tell that I agree.

And please, for him and yourself, have the Happiest of Christmases.

I realize these are just words.

But they are ones from my heart.

Bursting with love, James
