Doing What You Got to Do

So the other day I posted about unpacking and all that fun. Well today is on the beauty of having a yard. We have a pretty good size so that means a big project.

Right now I am just cleaning it up with a rake and then off to planting a fall garden. The nice thing about being California is that we have a long planting season, but right now we are in a drought. That means that almost everyone’s yard is going gold (ours is already there).

It will be a fun project but it won’t come without its pain. I might have grown up a horse girl (a different post for another day), but that was a long time ago and now all my Calluses are gone. My poor thumb is killing me but it’s so worth it.

No gloves and no Calluses make for a sad thumb.

The yard will be wonderful when it is done but for now it will be a lot of this:


And this:

In the city you throw clipping stuff away in a garbage can. What?

Before I will be all done. Time to get dirty.

Along with everything else going on in my life, I’ll keep you posted 🙂 I don’t know what it means to sit down. Ask my husband. I’m writing this post after a long day of child raising, cooking, cleaning, visiting my parents and shopping for stuff for the house.

Maybe I need to read about relaxing? Nah. Then my life would be boring and I think my life is pretty great. Why else would u be enjoying cleaning up a yard in October? I love being busy 🙂

It’s just you have to do sometimes to get things done. You got to do what you got to do 🙂 The Proverbs 31 woman was one who was great at time management. I hope to be like her someday with her ability to stay up late providing for her family and getting up before the rest of them to make breakfast. To be a good house keeper and homemaker and mom so that one day my daughter wi rise and call me blessed. To have my husband be able to elevate himself at work knowing that things are taken care of at home and be proud of it. That is my dream as a wife and mother, but for now it starts with the yard. 🙂
