Labor Day it was, so labor I did!
The house that I just moved into has a yard that…well, needs some TLC. The backyard was basically becoming a forest until today. I was talking to one of my roommates and she mentioned that she wanted to tackle the backyard to which I replied that I would help! So I went to my parents’ and picked up some clippers and gloves and we took on the backyard! I took a panoramic, so I don’t know how well you can see it. This is after we’d already been working on it some, so it used to be worse.
After some time and a lot of hard work by the lawn mower after we deforested the yard, it now looks like this!
The lawn could probably be mowed a couple more times to catch up on all the mowing that hadn’t been done. Also there’s other work in the yard that needs doing. But hey, it’s a start! I think it looks pretty good.
After the backyard, I did some work in the front yard too. I also did a bunch of cleaning inside the house and totally wore myself out. I was feeling really motivated and productive until I took a second to sit down. Then I realized how exhausted I was.
They turned out pretty good! They’re nice healthy snacks and I can grab them really quick to take to work. Also they totally made my house smell so amazing. Wins all around!
I had a great, busy day and I have a busy week ahead of me. It’s a good life.
