You talk about sore feet!!!! I had one busy week end!! It started about 10 AM Saturday. The Retired Special Forces group were selling sausage wraps to raise money for the food pantry and Meals on Wheels. We were there until 4. Had a great time raised a far amount of money but I stood most of the time. I came home and cooked dinner and crashed, Sunday we went to Lowes and got sealer for the deck and 5 shrubs for the front of the house. ( Friday the deck got power washed and a different cover put on it. )Russ started the sealer but his back was bothering him so I rolled the sealer on.I then switched the furniture that was on the deck and the ones on the patio. Everything else looked dirty on the patio so i cleaned the whole thing. Even washed the 2 gas grills down. I thought done for the day but no. Russ decided we'd figure out where we would put the shrubs. Well, that ended up with us plus Mike digging 5 holes in dirt that is really clay and planting those suckers. I got to crawl around underneath putting in the dirt. Did I tell you they are holly which means they are like needles???? After I got them water I was almost crawling. Russ said I was walking like my mother!!! Needless to say, Russ cleaned up and he cooked!!! ( Vietnamese take out!!!!)
Today we have to clean up all the mess around the plants put down ground cover and mulch. Plus I have half the border to dig out and put in cement border. My body is saying get back in bed and forget it!!!
If I live through this I'll see ya later!
