foot loose and fancy free...

olivia went to visit her gg and pops this weekend. that's a whole 'nother post! while she was away rett and i did...get ready...yard work. i know you were expecting some big weekend get-a-way, but, alas, we did yard work. sad, i know. but, it really needed it! i'm having family over mid-august for olivia's christening and then i'm hosting bunco that same week so we had to get it done! here are a few before and after pics. please forgive me for the dead grass. we don't have a sprinkler system and no matter how much we water it never mid summer our grass is always dead!

front planter before
and...after (i still need to scrub the moss off the brick)
i forgot to take the price tag off the pot!
front bushes before
side bushes before - the 2 small bushes replaced a dead tree and are still trying to catch up to the established bushes!
after, a much needed cut - look how much bigger the small bushes look!
mailbox before
after - weeded, trimmed and new mulch
and the aftermath - the city of ruston is going to love us!during the work day i noticed the grass "moving". i just knew it was a snake. i yelled for rett and he came over and stated that it was a mole. we've had this mole problem for years now... so he sends me inside so he can take care of the problem. a few minutes later he said i could come back out. the problem is no more. poor mole. i'm sorry. rest in peace.
now, i'm ready to see my baby! i wish my mother would hurry up and get here!
