Isn't she the cutest?! Mama sheep found herself a darling Springtime bonnet.
The other day, my sweet husband and I went for a ride. Just to see some Spring time changes here in the country.
Of course, it's lambing season.
We happened upon the cutest flock of sheep, and such sweet baby lambs.
Spring time is finally here.
Don't you just want to rub their little fuzzy heads?!
English Yew shrubs.
The evil Yews.
I had no idea that they were so miserable to remove.
Spencer had so many growing along the front of his house, that you couldn't even see the house.
We tried to yank them out with a cable hooked to the hitch of the truck. Bad idea.
Never, ever, try to yank a Yew shrub out....unless it's a teeny baby Yew.
So, the chain saw came out and he whacked them down.
The stumps will be dug out and cut again with the chain saw. Any remaining Yew shrub stump will be covered up with top soil, and we will plant over them!!
huge dead tree that was in the front yard. The tree was so dead and hardened that it took them a long time to cut it up.
Just with those two landscaping clean-ups done, his yard and home look 100% better. It's amazing what a difference it's made.
Also... the endless painting.
Each free day and what free hours we have, we paint.
Sanding, caulking, and painting primer. The ceilings are 12 feet, and I cannot reach them, even with an extension pole. So, Spencer and my sweet husband are the ones that have to paint the ceilings and the top parts of the wall.
most excellent trim, and baseboard painter!!
In the process of painting, Spencer has been getting his whole house re-wired.
It's just about done. Then, the insulation will be done. There is a company that sprays in insulation, and they are going to do the house. Also, the plumber will get started and re-plumb the entire house.
We are big DIY-ers, but there are some things that we hire out.
Wishing you all a very nice Spring.
Hoping for you that you are getting all of your Spring projects done.
If I don't post for a bit, you'll know I'm working my fingers to the bone.. painting, landscaping, caulking, loading debris in the truck, and hauling it to the landfill, hanging out at the hardware store.... etc.. etc... etc...
Attitude of gratitude:
~I have so much to be grateful for... but I am especially grateful for Spring this day.
