My goal over the weekend was to sort through the garage just enough to be confident that I had all my necessary boxes in the house. I began plugging away at this project, but when hubby was wanting to power-wash, he enlisted the help of Jordan and me to deal with the carpet and pad on the front porch. We had ripped out the carpet before we even moved our stuff in and threw it on the front porch. That was such a freeing feeling knowing that we would NOT get notified by the home owners association to remove it. I could have left it there for months if I wanted too, although I know we wouldn’t have. We ended up bagging and rolling up the pieces. We had 30 bags in all by the time we were done. (The back of the Suburban is full. Tim took half the bags to the office to throw out and hauled the other half to the street.)
While we were outside, we started trimming trees that were hitting the car as we drove in the driveway. We just couldn’t stop. I decided to tackle the tree at the front of the house since it was way over-grown. I got Jordan to help and in no time, the front of the house was much improved.
Later that evening we met the neighbors. They were out walking and stopped by to introduce themselves. I got a call from them the next day asking if I wanted some liriope. I hadn’t planned on doing much gardening, but I could not turn down an offer like that. I planted them around the stone in front of the tree. They don’t look like much now, but I definitely have a jump start on spring.
It was sure a nice diversion to be outside and beautify something. Now back to the big job of finding a place for all my things.
