Things that relate more to me than to you.

Turns out weed & feed works!

We’ve used weed & feed on the lawn in the past, but this year it left dark green lines everywhere it was put down. You can see exactly where it was applied and where it wasn’t. It definitely is working and I guess the grass was very hungry. I used granular so knowing exactly where […]

Say hello to Monster, Oscar, Imposter, and Carl

This year, I’m determined to get a good crop of pumpkins. Meet Monster, Oscar, Imposter, and Carl my pumpkin boxes protecting the seedlings from rabbits and other critters. I haven’t had great luck growing pumpkins in my yard due to all the great trees, so this year I asked my neighbor if I could utilize […]

We built a treehouse!

During the summer of COVID my family and I had time to build a tree house. I’m not the most talented in the area of building things, but, with a little bit of help, we were able to accomplish it! A huge thanks goes out to my neighbors who let me borrow tools, helped haul […]

First day of online school!

Lily now has school online thanks to our nations pandemic. However, she’s in one of the best rooms in the house, has her cat to keep her company, and snacks are close by. Doesn’t sound too shabby!
