I know I said that I wanted to craft all day today, but it was so beautiful that we decided to go out and get some bedding flowers and do some yard work today.
Here I am planting my new flowers. Hopefully now the neighbours will realize that this is a flower bed and stop their dogs from p1ssing in it. This is one of my pet peeves, oh ya its not Friday Peeves, guess this will have to wait.Here is hubby getting ready to trim the tree, well actually cut it in half. We bought this cedar tree about 14 yrs ago (we have 3 of them actually). It was suppose to be a dwarf cedar, it was only suppose to grow 4-6ft high. As you can see it is over 12 ft. I have a sign on the fence that read "Birds Welcome" I made it so you could see it over the tree, well we haven't seen that sign for a while teehee.
We all went out as a family to pick out the flowers. I am so anal about everything and that includes the colours of our flowers. Well last year the girls teased me about it, so I told them that they could pick them out next year. Well it is next year and I let go and let them pick all the flowers. Then they had to organize them as to where they should be planted. I just bit my tongue and did the planting. They did a wonderful job.
Here is Ashley taking pictures of the flowers. That girl has a camera attached to her at all times teehee. I am so happy that my girls have passions like this in their lives.Yep this is my Heather. She hates getting her picture taken. She didn't really participate in the outdoor activities. I think she would have rather been watching Dr. Who. She is watching all the episodes.
Mind you she did bring out a book to read, then Wayne put her to work picking up the cedar branches. Then she went back inside.Here is my Kristy. This girl has an electronic gadget with her at all times. If it isn't her cell phone (which it usually is), its her IPod Touch, or (in this case) my laptop, or of course her music.After we finished (needed a break) we took the girls out for Dairy Queen. Now you may ask if I got something (as I am trying to have a healthy new outlook). My answer would be yes I did. This is a lifestyle change, not a diet. So I got myself a chocolate dipped kiddie cone. See I restrained myself without depriving myself.
When we got back home Ashley wanted to take some pictures of her diploma outside. She needed my help. Well I think I fell asleep on the back lawn for a bit teehee. That fresh air and sunlight will do that to you. Wonder how many ants are crawling in my hair?
I got to go in my scrap/craft room and did a bit more organizing.
And to all you lovely ladies that want me to come and organize your rooms, I am there. Just send me a ticket and it would be my pleasure. I love to organize I really do, but you have to do the cooking LOL.
So how was your Sunday, hopefully as beautiful as mine was.
