So I stopped working on my new project so I could start two new projects...not a very productive way to work. The biggest new project is this:

This is the side of my yard I never show...can you tell why? So embarrassing. Over the last two weekends I've pulled the black weed barrier up, and went to Home Depot, hacked all the weeds down, and went to Home Depot, trimmed those two large bushes back to almost nothing, and went to Home Depot, capped off six sprinklers and converted two to drip lines, and went to Home Depot.

It's getting there but I still have a lot of work to do. I just hope the temperatures don't go into the hundreds before I'm done. I still have to put the weed barrier back down, plant plants, string out drip lines, lay out pavers, spread out tan bark and go back to Home Depot.

The other project I started is my Mom's Mother's Day gift...even more embarrassing. Aren't I lucky that she loves me and accepted an IOU (LOL). I can't show it yet, but I really like how it is turning out, I think she will too.

It sounds like you have a very close relationship with Mr. Home Depot!!!! You will be happy when it is all finished.

I have "paused" a few projects recently to work on some others too. Your yard is going to look great when it's done :-) I hope HD isn't too far away from you!

Substitute the word Lowe's for H.D. and I am with you on these types of projects! You are working all alone--no wonder you're deeply occupied.

Moms never mind late gifts :)

LOL! Sounds like you go to Home Depot as much as we do.
