Saturday was for the yard

Not the whole day, I slept in until 8:00.  I had to work at the office yesterday getting home about midnight, so I guess 8:00 wasn’t too late.  Needing to use up some ripe bananas I made a loaf of banana, walnut and cranberry bread.  We had it for second breakfast mid morning, then headed out to run a couple of errands

Lori had read yesterday’s blog before I woke up, so she was on board for running to Michael’s.  We picked up some tiny frosting tips and a ton of sprinkles, sparkles and candies for the gingerbread decorating event.  We even stopped and picked up another kit so Coral could have her own.  She may only be three and a half but being the only child we wanted to be sure she was included.

We were home by noon and Lori spent the rest of the day working.  I pulled out a huge Agave that had gone to seed and about forty babies that were under it.  I also pulled out two large sections of Aloes that had multiplied to an extreme.

Once both yard waste bins were full I went to Lowes and picked up 8 bags of gravel.  We need to have some delivered but I really just wanted to cover up what I had dug out so it didn’t end of up being a large kitty sand box.  Eight bags were not enough and I went back for four more and got them all spread out.

The yard waste bins are already on the street for Wednesday’s pick up, but rain this week is already showing weeds.  So more weeding is now needed.

Since I was already dirty, I went and washed both of our cars and filled them up with gas for the upcoming week.  Leaving tomorrow free for a massage in the middle of the day, work out today’s heavy lifting!
