What a day...

Well, it's just us girls here this weekend. Garet is at a camp for work, so Suzi and I have had fun outside doing yardwork.

I woke up early (as usual!) and after breakfast - and my smoothie!- I went outside to mow the grass. Not too long after I started, I noticed something come out from the side of the lawnmower... it was a snake! A little one, but still, it was a snake! I stopped the mower because I didn't want snake guts all over the place - but I used the mower as my barrier and tried to scare him away from our yard! I probably looked like the biggest goober!

So after I finished all the grass, I went to work on my flowers. I bought a lot to go down beside our mailbox, and I also bought some herbs and a couple vegetables - we'll see if I get to those tomorrow though! I was digging around on one side of the mailbox, and hit an ant hill! They swarmed! They were the black ones - so I got Garet's spray stuff and got 'em! Then I got to digging the other side of the mailbox and felt two bites, one on my leg and one on my hand. Red ants!! Oh man I was mad! I cannot believe how many of them there were! Don't worry I got them with the spray too! Wish I knew how to keep them from getting into my flowers!

All of that took most of the afternoon. Actually when I came in to eat some lunch I noticed that I hadn't even made up the bed this morning! If you know me, you know that I am obsessed when it comes to making the bed! Last one out makes it. I couldn't believe I didn't make it until after noon! Man I am really living on the edge!!

I did get the inside of the house all clean and then went over to Target for some errands. Now I am tired, and curled up on the couch about to watch a girlie movie :) Hopefully I'll have energy tomorrow to get my little garden started!
