So I haven’t blogged in a couple of days, but thankfully I have a wonderful partner that has kept everyone up on our lives.
I never got around to doing Fattracking Friday and the only excuse that I can think of is that I didn’t want to. haha. I gained 0.2 pounds and am not happy about that, but I had to come out and tell everyone or the whole fattracking thing just wouldn’t be worth it. Hopefully this week I will have lost that 0.2 plus some, but I am not holding my breath. I haven’t done much better this week than I did last week. I am determined to get back on track though. Summer is coming so that means swim suits, shorts and tank tops. All the things that scare me the most!
I haven’t really had time to do much decorating around the house, because as James said all of our time has been spent shopping for plants and getting them planted. Since we weren’t in the house in the fall when we were supposed to plant all of our bulbs for spring bloom they just now got in the ground. The tulips should be fine because I bought them back in January and kept them in the fridge, so hopefully they got enough cold to make them have full beautiful blooms. I’m a little worried about the other two types that we bought, but one already broke the surface yesterday so they should be fine too. If they all bloom like they are supposed to its going to be really pretty and add a ton of color to the front of our house. I have to admit the front is a little boring at the moment. We have even discussed putting another flower bed up beside the house but I’m not sure that either one of us can take more tilling or digging. That little project might have to wait until next spring.
Sunday while the guys were trimming trees my Mom and I had a chance to just sit around and talk. The weather was so pretty and it was nice to be outside getting a little time together. We plan on doing that a whole lot more as the weather gets better. It was so relaxing and I felt like I didn’t have a care in the world, well except watching the guys to make sure they didn’t get electrocuted while trimming trees. That in itself was pretty entertaining. Something about handing a man a power tool turns them into a whole other person.
It’s already Wednesday, so we are halfway through the work week! The weather looks like it is going to be good again for the weekend so get outside and enjoy it, before those summer days of triple digits get here.
